New to Yoga
We invite students to work within their own level of challenge in all of our classes, however some classes are paced at a more challenging level than others. Finding the right fit will allow your yoga journey to be successful.
New to Yoga
We have a special New To Yoga Class on Tuesdays at 5:30pm that is catered especially for new Yoga students. So if you are at all intimidated in taking a yoga class or if you just want to start at the beginning this is the place for you. No need to pre-register. Just show up with movable breathable clothes and we have the rest.
Beginners might like to begin with a "basics" class. "Basics" classes and "specialty" classes offer more instruction. The Basics classes introduce the movements, sequences and poses explored at TAYS.
There are 2 types of "basics" classes: "Power Basics", and "Hatha Basics" classes. The "Power" classes have more focus on working with the energy and breath of the body to assist in deepening of the postures. The "Hatha" classes have more focus on details and alignment in the easier levels and become more physically challenging at the "Hatha Vinyasa" level.
This is a beginner level class with emphasis on coordination of breath and movement, and also on safety and alignment.
It is slower paced offering modification(s) for less flow and easier transitions. Our teachers can offer modifications or props when necessary to avoid strain or stress with certain poses, allowing everyone to obtain benefit and joyful practice. This class is a great place to start practicing, especially if you are new to yoga or enjoy learning the details of the poses.
This is a challenging yet accessible vinyasa class. This class links breath to movement to get the heart rate going, focuses on foundational postures and deepens the understanding of alignment. This class is a great place to start practicing, especially if you enjoy a bit of physical challenge.
