New to Yoga or Yoga Shala?
We are beginners at so many things every day it seems.
This one is one of the easier starts to make - it comes with guides (teachers) that don't grade, push or judge anything about you.
The ease that comes with a yoga practice then flows over into your life.
And you are in good company, it's called a practice because every yoga practitioner is a beginner every time they step on the mat.
What class do I start with?
Easy answer - All of our classes are suitable for all levels.

Please note that these suggestions are just for starting! After a few classes, the easy answer we started with is also the true answer.
How do I sign up?
Register On-Line, then sign up for lasses you want!
What do I need?
Wear comfortable clothing.
You can bring a mat if you want, or borrow one of ours.
What to expect
Arrive 5-15 minutes before class starts (door is locked before class begins), leave your shoes in the cubbies and come on into the practice room. There are blankets, blocks and bolsters to borrow if you like. There are bathrooms for you to use at any time and storage if you'd like to keep any of your yoga items at the studio.
