New to Yoga ?

 

Solace Yoga Studio is an all-level studio.

 

Beginners will feel comfortable here as well as more experienced students. Many people think that they have to be flexible to practice yoga but much of the benefit of yoga is the practice itself and becoming more flexible over time. Yoga helps to relieve tightness in muscles as well as helps those who are already flexible.

 

We highly recommend that you begin your yoga journey in our Sunday evening class Solace Yoga 1.5 and also join our

 

Yoga On-Ramp program where we will teach you:

  • Movement Fundamentals 
  • Compression vs. Muscle Tension
  • The Basic Sun Salutation Series
  • Basic Breathing Techniques for Yoga & Stress Reduction
  • How to Meditate
  • Understanding The Path of Yoga On and Off the Mat

 

Why Practice Yoga?

  • Stress reduction – Yoga draws your focus inward to calm you and bring balance back in to your life.
  • Increased Fitness – You may experience improved flexibility, strength, range of motion, and better posture.
  • Management of chronic conditions – Yoga has been proven to help with a variety of health conditions such as, anxiety, back pain, depression, cancer, asthma, high blood pressure, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and insomnia.
  • Weight loss
  • Strengthens core muscles
  • Improves concentration and mental clarity
  • Increases energy
  • Improves overall well-being and mood
  • At the end of a yoga session, you should feel invigorated, yet relaxed and calm. If this isn't the case, talk to your instructor. He or she might have suggestions for you. Otherwise there may be another yoga class better suited to your needs for stress management and relaxation.

 

Beginner Tips

  • For your first class it is recommended that you take it easy and allow yourself the immense freedom of being a beginner.
  • Wear loose-fitted, comfortable clothing when practicing yoga. 
  • Don’t worry about how your body looks! Aim on turning inward and noticing how the practice makes you feel on the inside.
  • You don't have to do every pose your instructor demonstrates. If a pose is uncomfortable or you can't hold it as long as the instructor requests, don't do it or come out of it. Spend time sitting quietly, breathing deeply until your instructor moves the class on to another pose that's more comfortable for you.
  • Practice with breath awareness, and compassion toward yourself and those around you.
