New students

WHAT TO EXPECT

Each class begins with a meditation to help calm the mind and smooth the breath. The instructor will then lead you through a short warm-up followed by the core part of the class which emphasizes connecting the breath with each asana. The class will end with a cool-down and a final relaxation (svasana).

Mantras and pranayama may be introduced at the begining or end of class.
Modifications will be offered based on the needs of the student.
