New to Yoga? This is the class for you! Experienced in yoga and want a refresher? You always learn something new in our Basics course. In our 12-week Yoga Basics course, you will learn the FUNdamentals of safe yoga practice. These “training” classes cover the correct alignment and modifications for 24 classic yoga postures, 4 breathing techniques and yogic relaxation. You’ll also learn some yoga philosophy and mindfulness practice. Experience different levels of practice (gentle, moderate, vigorous) and sample different styles of yoga. Find the fit that is best for you. We specialize in adapting the practice to meet you where you are. We can help you work with your injury and limitations. Yoga is good for all bodies. 12 consecutive classes will give you all you need to fully participate in our other “practice” classes and to begin a practice at home.

We run these classes in 12 week series. These classes fill up quickly. If you are new to yoga it is best to begin with the first class and take the 12 consecutive classes in a row.

Drop-ins are $16 per class, and permitted only if the course does not fill. If you sign up to drop-in before the course begins and the course does fill up, know that you will be “bumped” to admit someone attending the entire course.

Kids are welcome to attend with an adult. Kids 15 and older are welcome to attend on their own.

We provide:

  • Handouts illustrating 24 basic postures

  • Instruction in 4 essential breathing techniques to relax and/or energize
  • Simple, fun homework assignments to help you integrate yoga into your daily life
