what to wear?

BARRE:  workout clothes, bring water bottle (please no plastic), no shoes

are classes beginner friendly?

Yes, all classes are beginner friendly...however, some classes, like Energizing flow will have more intensity.  No matter the class style or intensity, if you come with an open mind, and positive attitude, you will be just fine.  If you have specific physical concerns, please email Liz at YogaGardenNW@gmail.com for more assistance.

 

Teachers will offer modifications and a range of options for all students.  If you have injuries, let your teacher know or inquire about private lessons.

  • Arrive with plenty of time to find parking and introduce yourself to your teacher.  Getting Here.  We are in Old Town Battle Ground surrounded by vintage shops and across from Barrel Mt. Brewery (which has locally sourced amazing food!) Click Here for Directions

  • Turn off cell phones or turn to silence.

  • Please remove shoes before entering in the yoga room.  Yoga is traditionally practiced with bare feet to help us feel stability and connect directly with the ground or mat under our feet.  Removing shoes upon entering a studio or before stepping onto your yoga mat becomes a ritual. Oftentimes at a studio, removing your shoes is the last thing you do before entering the yoga room. This ritual helps to get you prepared to practice and indicates a shift in perspective.

  • Philosophy food for thought:  The first of the five Niyamas, the practices of yoga, is saucha {purity or cleanliness}. External cleanliness refers to both the physical body and environment.  Help us keep the studio tidy and ready for your next practice.  Spritz a clean towel, then wipe your mat down post-practice. Put away all props neatly and where you found them respecting and honoring our Yoga.

  • If you are running late or need to leave early...come to class anyway.  Please be mindful and respectful of the teacher and other students.  Please wait to enter if the door is closed, the teacher will invite you in you after the meditation part of class (first 5 - 8 minutes).
