Frequently Asked Questions

When can I start?

  • You can start anytime.  All the classes are adaptable to various skill levels and body types. Read the class descriptions to learn more. If you are very new to Yoga, I strongly suggest you first enroll in Yoga Foundations. 

Do you charge for mat rental?

  • No. I have plenty of mats, blocks, and straps for you to use. Lockers are also available for your use while attending class. 

Is Yoga a religion?

  • Yoga is not a religion. It is a 5,000 year old science. 

 Do you offer Hot Yoga?

  • No.

What do I do if I have a pre-existing injury?

  •  If you have a pre-existing condition/injury, PLEASE let me know before class. I can offer adjustments and modifications so you can participate in class safely. You know your body and its abilities and limitations better than anyone, so first trust yourself. I will always encourage you to listen to what your body is telling you and offer suggestions if I see you struggling. Private sessions are also available.

Will Yoga help me to manage stress and tension?

  • Yes. I am a Yoga Life Coach with special training in mindfulness and meditation. My intention is to introduce you to easy techniques you can use right away to increase your sense of peace and well-being. 

What if I am not fit or flexible?

  • It does not matter! I teach Yoga to ALL BODIES. You do not have to be fit or flexible. You only need to show up with an open mind. Leave the rest to me. I will show you how to adapt the postures to your body. I have even had students attend just for the breathing and relaxation. 

How often should I practice Yoga?

  • Once you learn some basic techniques, I encourage you to incorporate Yoga into your life every day, even if it means just taking a few minutes to close your eyes and breathe. Coming together as a community is an important part of living a Yogic lifestyle. I suggest attending class at least a couple times a week if possible, and once a week minimum. Membership options are available if you chose to come several times a week.

Can I do Yoga during pregnancy?

  • Yes. Please let me know before class if you are pregnant. If it's still a secret, it's safe with me! I just need to know so I can keep you safe. You can also schedule a quick free chat with me so I can offer you some suggestions and modifications to keep up with your changing body.   

Why are the doors locked?

  • I do not have posted hours. If you need to see me for any reason, just send me a message or give me a call. I will get back to you as soon as I can.  I see private clients by appointment and teach several Yoga classes a week. Connecting with you is important to me, so don't ever hesitate to reach out!
