Many people report that they started doing yoga for physical reasons (weight loss, wanting to improve balance, flexibility, etc.) and ended up also experiencing mental benefits (less depression or anxiety, better and deeper sleep, a general sense of well-being and ease that permeates the activities of daily life, etc). Yoga can be a very challenging form of low-impact exercise, a meditative rest, and everything in between. Yoga has a long history and is practiced in many different ways, so really the best way for you to learn is to come on in and try it!
We also offer several classes a week that are an appropriate challenge level for most beginners, including Gentle Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Yin Yoga and some Hatha yoga classes. It is also a good idea to sign up for a free 30-minute Open House Session with Yoga Refuge owner, Kate Holly, to help you determine the best classes for your lifestyle, and answer questions about how to begin.
You can also e-mail anytime for a quick consult to figure out where to start: email@example.com
If you plan to come regularly, you are welcome to leave your labeled mat in our student mat storage area.
Please wear clothing you can move in, and consider bringing a water bottle.
