Trying One Of Our Yoga Classes Is Easy
Since the 1960’s yoga has gained significantly in popularity. In fact, it’s difficult these days, NOT to find a Yoga studio close to where you live. However, it may be difficult to decide which type of yoga to practice, since there are many styles from which to choose.
At New Life, we offer a simple range of classes mostly designed to teach beginner’s, restore vitality and reduce stress. Beginner’s, don’t worry! We have yoga classes, that will help you start your practice safely and correctly.
We recommend you begin opening your muscles, joints, and tendons with one of the restorative or chair yoga classes. When you are ready, join a Yoga Basics class or series. Both will teach you the poses and patterns of breath, but a Series will give you a deeper and richer understanding of yoga.
Below are brief descriptions of current classes. Once you have learned the basics, step it up to an all levels flow class. from there, the sky’s the limit.
It is important to note, sign-up is not required but suggested, as occasionally classes may be canceled or a substitute instructor may be teaching your class.

All levels. An exploration of a few of the many yoga styles blended into a different class theme each week. Classes will integrate styles ranging from meditative, gentle, non-flow to slower paced, more active movement.

All Levels Flow
This class teaches the basics of yoga flow. It is designed for those who are comfortable with the basics enough try their hand at putting it ALL together in a slow rhythmic flow. It is also great for those who may be returning to their practice and want a refresher.

We do not need to be able to get down on the floor to practice yoga! This is, unfortunately, a common misunderstanding. There’s a whole system of yoga designed around using the assistance of a chair. The idea is to realize these techniques are available no matter what your current state of mobility.
