Beginner Yoga Classes and Workshops

Class Essentials

“We recommend these yoga essentials for every class.”

What to bring to class:

  • Your yoga mat or you may borrow one of ours

  • Water

  • Enthusiasm and an open mind

Things to Know

Knowing these things will make your experience even more enjoyable.

What you ought to know:

  • Wear comfortable clothing that conforms to the body and stays in place. In doing so, you won’t feel shy about getting deep into that downward dog.

  • Yoga is practiced barefoot.

  • Let your teacher know before class if you are pregnant or have injures. Modified poses that keep you comfortable and avoid strain can be recommended.

  • It’s OK to take a break. Feel comfortable doing so and remember everyone’s yoga path is unique.

Tips for Success

Our teachers and Joy yogis offer tips and advice for new yogis.

Our Yogi Tips for success:

  • Listen to your body. It will tell you when to push forward and when to slow down.

  • Keep up with your practice. When you are tired after work, go to yoga. When you are pumped and energized, go to yoga.

  • Don’t miss out on Savasana at the end of class! Yes. Savasana looks like adult nap time, but its feels wonderfully relaxing. It is designed to give the body a chance to regroup and reset itself after a practice.
