We are so excited you have chosen to begin your yoga journey with us. Rest assured this is a fabulous idea. Read this guide at your leisure to help you feel comfortable before your first class.
If you think “I can’t do yoga” don’t worry, we teach yoga to people who think they can’t do yoga! The Yoga Nook is a safe place to learn and explore. All of our Yoga teachers hold at least a 200 hour teacher training certificate. You can rest assured your are receiving a safe class every time you come to the studio,
"What if I can't do the poses?" No biggie! skip, soften, and modify any and all postures to fit your body. We encourage you to safely explore but ultimately want you to know you have the freedom to choose what you need that day. Yoga Nook teachers will provide an environment where you will feel comfortable trying new things. We are never in a pose for more than a few breaths so we all eventually catch up with one another.
Our classes are designed for ALL skill levels, beginners encouraged to attend any class. However, some classes are designed intentionally to be more challenging than others. Explore our "Class Type" section under the "About" tab and pick your class.
Schedule classes online under “Schedule” tab or find us on the Mindbody App. We suggest booking your class before you arrive to secure your spot.
Arrive Early for your first class. We suggest arriving at least 15 minutes before class for registration and mat set up. We lock the doors when class begins.
