Yoga Is For Everybody And Every Body.

Yoga is not about being flexible. Yoga meets you where you are and provides a route to building balance, stability, strength, and flexibility, internally and externally.

If you’ve never taken a yoga class before or you’re not sure you’re ready for a regular yoga class, the Yoga Basics Series is for you. It’s a 6-week class that meets once per week for 75 minutes in which you’ll learn all the basic poses (or “asanas” in Sanskrit). You’ll be introduced to breath work (pranayama), meditation and some of the concepts behind the poses.

Etiquette & Helpful Hints

  • Please sign in at the front desk when you arrive. (Your teacher doesn’t get paid otherwise!)
  • Arrive 10 minutes early to class. Doors will be locked promptly at the start of class.
  • Please arrive 20 minutes early when coming to Shine for the first time.
  • Try to eat one to two hours before class. Both full and empty stomachs impact your practice.
  • Make sure to let the teacher know if you are injured or pregnant. He or she will adapt the class for you.
  • Yoga can make us very sensitive out sensations and subtle energy. That is why we ask that you arrive clean and fragrance free.
  • Enter the studio quietly.
  • Be mindful of where you place your mat so that there is room for everyone.
  • Please turn off your cell phone. This is important to your state of mind as well as others. Vibrating cell phones can still be heard.
  • Wear appropriate attire. Make sure you’re covered in all the important places.
  • It’s tremendously beneficial to stay for the final resting pose – savasana. But if you must leave early, please place your mat near the door.
  • Keep the studio clean and tidy during and after class.
  • Borrowed mats should be cleaned thoroughly with our green cleaning solution before being returned to the shelves.
  • Work in your pain-free, strain-free zone. Sensation is good. Pain is bad. Please be respectful of your precious body, mind and spirit.
