Why is the room heated?
Because sweating is an essential bodily function and you should do it every day. Heat helps to soften your muscles and joints, which helps you avoid injury and get more out of your practice.
Can beginners attend classes?
We welcome beginners – our classes are open to all levels. We encourage beginners to pace themselves and trust their own bodies. In time you’ll build strength, focus, stamina, and flexibility. The benefits of yoga do not occur overnight but results are lasting. Prior to attending your first class, you will need to complete required registration forms and waivers.
Yes. However, you determine the intensity with which you work in each pose and throughout the process. Your first few classes may be difficult. No matter what your age or experience level, this yoga will take you to your edge – and pull more out of you than you ever thought possible.
Will class be challenging for me?
Successful yoga practice requires discipline and wisdom. Consistency is the key to success. For life-changing results, practice 4-6 days per week. 2-3 days per week done consistently will create transformation over time. Power yoga is more than a workout – it is a conscious journey of discovery.
How often should I practice?
Your job will be to focus on letting go, sweating, breathing, moving and respecting your limitations. A yoga pose will expose imbalances, as well as physical and emotional blocks. Soon the tension, and sometimes fear, will release and your range of motion will naturally increase.
What if I'm not flexible?
This yoga is based on intuition rather than tradition. If you think you need to go to a health club to be wonderfully fit and beautiful, think again. If you think that you need to escape to a cave in the Himalayas to find the enlightenment that yoga promises, think again. You will discover strength and energy you never knew existed. First step is to say yes and show up!
