Building a Proper Foundation

As you progress through the art of yoga, you will experience very dramatic poses and exercises meant to challenge your body. All of this starts from learning a basic foundation of breathing, balance and strength.

Going through our beginner programs, you’ll learn the techniques that help hone your body. Easy, approachable activities that gently push your body, helping you learn what’s comfortable. This ensures you avoid injury and get the skills you need before proceeding into more advanced practices.

Guided Approach to Beginner Yoga

The pace and style of yoga is ideal for different body types, people who are pregnant or have suffered injuries. Our goal as beginner yoga instructors is to understand your limitations and build exercises that work for you.

When we guide a beginner class, we offer alternative workouts and postures that help everyone enjoy yoga without causing strain and discomfort.

Our Variety of Yoga Instructors

Part of our culture is letting our great instructors offer their own take on a yoga workout. Each person is different and approaches in a unique way, so we encourage our students to try different teachers and find a fit that is best.
