The word “yoga” is derived from the Sanskrit word meaning union or yoke. The first written records of this methodology appeared around 200 BC in Yogasutra of Patanjali. A contemporary interpretation of yoga describes yoga as a systematic practice aimed at developing harmony in the body, mind, and environment.

A general rule of thumb is that yoga is best when practiced between two and five times per week. As you ease your way into a consistent practice schedule, that’s a good goal to aim for! Over time, you might find that your body can handle five or six sessions each week, if that’s what you want. Always consult with your primary care physician before starting a new yoga practice.

Something comfortable is best. Breathable, flexible top and bottom. Shoes are not required, please do not bring your foot-ware into the studio.

Try having a light meal or small snack at least an hour before you head to the studio. This gives your digestive tract enough time to do some work to get the food out of your tummy, while still allowing you to reap the benefits from the jump in blood sugar.
