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 classes a week that are an appropriate challenge level for most beginners, including Gentle Yoga, Restorative Yoga, and Hatha classes.
It is also recommended 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. Please see the New Students page.
If you are not sure where to begin, or are concerned that you can’t keep up with a group class, please sign up for our free 30-minute Open House Session. Yoga therapist and Yoga Refuge owner, Kate Holly, can help you determine the best fit for your goals, as well as looking at possible modifications for your practice based on injuries and other limitations.
