I’m new to yoga, which classes should I take?

Our classes are all levels, but some may be more difficult for beginners. We offer a Gentle Hatha for Beginners class and also many Hatha classes, which are all designed to accommodate beginners.

Please let the teacher know if you are new to yoga or to that particular style of yoga. Most teachers usually will give you adaptations to make the pose either easier or more challenging but letting them know if you’re a beginner will remind them to talk about these adaptations during class.

How long are classes?

Classes are usually between 60-75 minutes.

What if I need to leave class early?

Please speak to the teacher ahead of time to let them know you need to leave early. Also, please be as quiet as you can and respectful of the rest of the class.

What if I leave something behind in class?

If something is left behind, it will be given to the AMS security lost & found. You can find their office across from Uppercase on the main concourse of the SUB. Feel free to also message us on Facebook!

Do you have classes in the summer?

Classes aren’t guaranteed in the summer but we often have them. We usually announce in April before the summer term starts whether we will be having summer classes that year.

If we do not announce, you can check the calendar on the first week of May to see if there is a schedule!
