Yoga FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

How long are your classes?

Group classes and Private lessons are one hour long. Workshops will vary in length.

What should I wear?

Something comfy! Women tend to wear leggings and men tend to wear sweatpants or athletic shorts. I’ve even had students wear stretchy jeans!

Do I have to be flexible?

No. Come as you are. Yoga is an art of meeting your body exactly where you are today and recognizing that every day will be a little bit different.

What should I bring?

A water bottle and a Yoga mat(if you have one). I have extra mats here at the studio as well as blocks, straps, blankets, and bolsters.

Do injuries happen often in Yoga?

No. As long as you are moving with intention, injuries are unlikely to occur. Injuries are most likely to occur when transitioning between postures, which is why moving slowly with purpose is very important as a beginner. I will teach you how to listen to your body so you can form proper muscle memory in order to prevent injuries. Once muscle memory is formed, you can safely pick up the pace!

Do I have to meditate?

No. I do not incorporate meditation into my group classes or private lessons. However we do practice the art of Pranayama(breathwork), Pratyahara(control of the senses), and Dharna(concentration) during each class. Which are the necessary steps one must take in order to master the art of meditation. And If that sounds like a lot, don’t worry, you won’t even realize you’re doing it!

How can you help me connect my mind and body?

Yoga is a philosophical system that consists of eight limbs. In Private Lessons, I will guide you through these eight limbs, touching on each one as I deem appropriate for you specifically. Each lesson will be different depending on how you are feeling and what your needs are at any given moment. Pranayama(control of the vital life force) or breathwork, is our main tool for learning how to block out distractions of the five senses and concentrate within.
