Brand New Beginners

Walking into a yoga class for the first time can be an intimidating experience. You may feel you’re not flexible enough, not strong enough, or not calm enough to make it through an entire class. This series provides you with the opportunity to engage your mind and body in a study of your Self, discovering breath and movement in a non-competitive and nurturing environment. We will focus on foundational vinyasa yoga poses and breath practices, and your teacher will also introduce you to yoga philosophy. The series will be progressive, layering one class on top of the next, so that your experience and understanding of yoga continues to deepen. This series is designed to empower you to attend any class at Wake Up Yoga with confidence after its conclusion, armed with appropriate variations to protect yourself from injury and get the most out of the class.

adjustmentsThis is an introductory series to vinyasa yoga. Vinyasa yoga can be an intense physical practice and may not be appropriate for those with recent head or neck injury, vertigo or severe joint pain. Students will be sitting on the floor at the beginning of each session, and classes are designed for those who can get up and down from the floor with ease. Pregnant students looking to establish a practice are encouraged to take prenatal yoga classes rather than enroll in this series.

Please be in touch with us at or send an email to info@wakeupyoga.com if you have any questions about this series. Vinyasa yoga is a valuable practice for many people but may not be the most appropriate practice for each student at every phase of life. We want you to LOVE yoga and are happy to direct you to a class that will be best-suited to your intentions.
