TIPS FOR A HAPPY PRACTICE
We have a variety of classes, workshops and events for you to chose from. If you would like some information or guidance about where to begin please do not hesitate to email or come into our studio to meet with Lisa Matthews or our highly experienced certified instructors. We do however suggest you begin with our Beginner Series or one of our many Gentle & Stretch classes.
We also offer Private Instruction. Get the attention you need, one on one. Although yoga group classes have grown in popularity over the years, some individuals may find that private lessons are more appealing. Private lessons can not only help a student grasp the basics of yoga, it increases flexibility and improves alignment, develops confidence to practice in group settings, and helps a student learn how to modify a practice due to limitations/injuries. Check out our Pricing +Policies page for rates.
"You do not need to be flexible, you just need an open mind to show up and enjoy! We believe that YOGA is for EVERYONE, regardless of AGE, LIMITATIONS
OR INJURY." -Lisa Matthews
Keep voices soft in studio spaces.
As many of us have transitioned to taking yoga stretch fitness classes at home, we have some suggestions for creating a space for your home practice. The best part about creating such a space is that there’s no wrong way to do this. All you need is a little time, some supplies, and your good intentions.
Clear enough space or choose an area that allows you to lie on your back and stretch your arms overhead. In the summer months you may even go outside in your own yard, patio or deck.
If you have traditional yoga props this is wonderful. But, please don’t worry if you don’t have traditional props, because you may improvise using items you already have at home. Consider using a towel (for a blanket), a pillow or try rolling two to three blankets in a tight and firm roll (for a bolster), thick books (for blocks), a belt from a bath robe, scarf, belt or a jump rope (for a strap), and water bottles, soup cans or cork blocks (for hand weights). Creativity with props can be fun. Remember that each body and practice is special in it’s own way. Find props that work for you. If your creative props aren’t working well, contact me 973-452-2828 to order cork blocks, resistance bands or bolsters for your practice. We understand that having a space like this in your home is a luxury, so if space is limited, no worries! You will still have an awesome home practice. Just remember to get on your mat and practice!
We do this for our CommUNITY. We are all in this together.
