First Time Students
We start where we start
We all remember our first class and know it is the first step to changing your life. This is a true beginner yoga, all you have to do is show up and breathe. This basic series of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises, practiced in a hot room, is taught in a manner that allows the practice to be done by beginners, people with limited mobility, and people with chronic illness, but is also challenging enough for athletes and experienced yoga students.
Our students come in all shapes, sizes, age groups, and physical condition. We are a supportive yoga community, our staff, teachers and students are always excited to welcome new students to the studio and make you feel comfortable and welcome.
Most people start to see real benefits in their first 10 classes. It can take a few classes to get used to the heat, but in a short time you will start to love coming in and how great you feel. Our new member program, $59 for your first month of membership, is designed to allow you to jump-start your practice, and prepare you for a regular transformative yoga practice.
We are here to support you on your Wellness Yoga journey.
All YOU have to do is take the first step and sign up and take your first class today!
Some things to help you on the first step:
Registration is recommended but not required and every class is for beginners. All you have to do is show up.
Arrive at least 15 minutes early for your first class.
You will need a yoga mat, a large bath or beach towel, and water for class. All these items are available to purchase or rent at the studio.
Bring a second towel if you would like to shower after class.
Drink water prior to class—being well hydrated makes the class more enjoyable.
It is best to practice yoga on an empty stomach, try to avoid large meals 2 hours prior to class.
Dress in lightweight clothing, dry wicking tops are best. It is better to avoid cotton t-shirts as they become wet and heavy holding in the heat
We encourage you to take your second class within 24 hours.
Our teachers are available before and after class to answer any questions.
One of the most common questions we get is: what's the best way to try hot yoga? Can I try just one class to see if I like it? Why do most people sign up for the first month of membership instead of something else?
The answer might surprise you! In this short video, studio owner Teri Almquist explains why the best way to try hot yoga is to come as much as you can in your first month.
You can do this! We can help.
See you soon.
