I have never done yoga before, how do I get started?
Casa Yoga offers several opportunities for beginners. On our calendar look for CLASSES suitable for your level, you may ask us at the studio.  Before attending the weekly classes, we suggest to attend the 8-WEEK BEGINNER YOGA COURSE to approach the practice in small groups with a slow and gradual pace, with attention given to breathing and the alignment of basic asanas. We also offer regularly a 2-hour YOGA 101 WORKSHOP on Saturday morning. This workshop offers new students some fundamentals of yoga and helps them understand the different styles of yoga available at our studio.
