Yoga for Beginners

“I’ve always wanted to try yoga, but I have no idea what I’m doing and don’t know where to begin.” If these words have crossed your lips, then you’ve come to the right place!

Let’s be honest: new people, unfamiliar words, and intimidating movements can keep many a beginner from ever stepping foot in a yoga studio. This can be a lot to navigate, especially when you’re in and amongst others who seem so comfortable with it it all.

WE’RE HERE TO CHANGE THAT!

Join Mark for this accessible, slow-paced, weekly yoga class to help you learn, understand, break down, build up, enjoy and embody the basics of yoga. No yoga experience or fancy yoga pants are necessary – you don’t even have to be “flexible” … this is an accessible class for anyone, any age, any fitness level, any BODY. Yes, even you!

Whether you’re curious, wanting to learn the basics before sampling our other classes, anxious about a new experience, or just want to get some questions answered and learn the subtleties of yoga poses and practices you’ve never had explained, Renkon’s Yoga for Beginners weekly practice is the class for you.

Come once, or come weekly; you’ll always learn something new – no class will ever be the same!

Each week, Mark will guide you through a yoga posture, practice, technique, or philosophy and then guide you through the opportunity to experience it within an accessible yoga practice, too. This weekly class is designed to demystify the magic of yoga and help you learn and build the foundations for a basic yoga practice in a safe and supportive environment where the only bad questions are those that go unasked.

Your Yoga for Beginners class will inspire and empower you with the knowledge and confidence with time to safely participate in a yoga practice just about anywhere. You’ll also have a solid level of knowledge about what yoga is (and what it isn’t) and have all of your questions answered to clear your head and put your heart at ease.

Mark is committed to ensuring you are comfortable, well-prepared, supported (mentally and physically), and making it fun too! Your Beginning Yoga classmates will become a community of close friends as you move through this learning journey together!

When it comes to feeling connected and comfortable, our community-focused yoga studio rooted in the power of human connection is the place to be.

By encouraging pre-registration and credit card payments, it allows our teachers to pay attention to the people arriving to our studio space rather than tending to their money and making change. All around, it creates more ease in your yoga experience at our studio.

You can early cancel your reservations via our app or your MindBody account up to two hours in advance of class start time if something comes up that makes you unable to attend as committed. We’ll happily place that class credit back on your account for you to use the next time. No shows and late cancellations that are made within two hours of class start time will forfeit the class credit as though you had attended. Thank you for understanding that when you reserve a space in our studio, it’s a space someone else might have used, so we do ask you to please be respectful of our schedule and your yoga community by giving us the courtesy of early cancellation.
