Getting Started

What the heck does ‘Namaste’ mean?
Namaste means, ‘the light that shines within me honors the light that shines within you’.

Huh. So, what is Vinyasa??
Easy, Vinyasa generally means linking movement with Breath.

What do I need to bring for my first class?
Nothing but your desire to learn and grow. Ok, and maybe a water bottle. We supply the mats, and we don’t charge for ’em either.

What can I expect from an Intro To Yoga Class?
At the Yoga Shop, you can expect one thing above all else: expect to feel welcomed into a practice and culture that’s 5000 years old and getting more popular each millenium. Beyond that, you will be guided to listen to your breath, hold easy poses (or asanas) and push your boundaries of strength and flexibility in a non-harmful fashion

Can I do Vinyasa classes and also more “restorative” classes?
Yes! in fact, we strongly encourage that you take 3 classes each week to truly experience the bene’s of Yoga, and we also encourage you to take at least one gentle class along with a more vigorous Vinyasa flow class to get the full effect of Yoga on the body mind and spirit.

Can the Yoga Shop be rented for special occasions?
Yes. If it’s really special.
