For Beginners

Just Getting Started?

If you have never taken a yoga class before it might feel a bit intimidating to get started. We want you to feel welcome and we are happy to answer any questions you may have. We are honored to be part of your beginning and continuing yoga journey.

How to choose a yoga class

Choosing a class and a teacher are individual, personal decisions only the student can make. We recommend looking at the class descriptions, taking into consideration if you feel it will fit your needs. You may want to try several classes until you find the best one for you.

Any class that states it is appropriate for beginners in the description is probably a good place to start. If you are not sure if a class is right for you, or you want to know more about the class, feel free to contact the teacher and ask any questions you have. Yoga teachers want to serve their students as best they can. Part of teaching is helping students find a class that is appropriate for them.

Arrive a few minutes before the class starts

New students will need to sign a release and purchase a class card or pay the drop-in fee before the class starts. Arriving early will give you the opportunity to meet your teacher, check-in, gather your gear, and get comfortable before the class starts.

Pease enter the classroom quietly. This helps to set the transition into sacred space. Arriving early is a sign of respect for your self, your fellow students, and your teacher.


New students have the option to purchase a three class card for $30, to be used within one month. All students may purchase a 10-class card for $120 dollars, which is good for one year or a five class card for $65, which is good for six months. Another option is to pay for each class at the drop-in rate of $15 per class. Class cards may be used for any class, so students can try a variety of classes, if they wish. We accept cash, checks, or credit/debit cards.


Yoga is best practiced at least 1-2 hours after a light meal. If you do eat before class, please limit yourself to something minimal, such as a piece of fruit. Do not bring food into the studio.


Feel free to bring a closed water bottle with you to class.

Dress comfortably

Wear comfortable, stretchy clothing. Avoid any clothes or jewelry that constrict movement or breathing, especially at the waist and neck.

Yoga Gear

Trillium students may use the props provided, including yoga mats. For most classes you will need a sticky mat, blocks, a blanket, and a strap. You are welcome to bring your own mat or other props if you like.
