Yoga and Tai Chi are not religious practices and we honor and welcome all members and their beliefs. Sanskrit is the traditional language of yoga and is used in class as well as the English translation. Some classes involve an invocation that is chanted, but is always optional.

Please wear comfortable clothing that allows you to stretch and move easily. Yoga is traditionally done barefoot. It is also recommended that you practice on an empty stomach.

We appreciate you coming on time to these classes so as not to disturb the ambiance of the class or the instructor.
