Beginners


Here is some helpful information to help you begin.

No experience is necessary. Don’t worry about fumbling. We all start out as a beginner. The most important thing to remember is that you are coming to feel good. If you leave the class feeling better than when you walked in the door, something amazing just happened. We have 11 different instructors and 28 classes to explore! It’s like ice cream… you know you are going to like it, you just need to find your flavor! Welcome to Barefoot Studio.

I’m new, which class should I go to?
If you are out-of-shape, very stiff, or injured, you should start out with one of the Gentle Yoga classes. But, if you’re very fit and flexible, you may enjoy starting out at a Flow class.

First Day
Drop-ins are always welcome. To attend any of the weekly classes, just show up 10-15 minutes early to meet the teacher and to fill out a registration form.

Clothes and yoga mats
You will want to wear comfortable clothing that isn’t too baggy and doesn’t restrict movement. A t-shirt or tank-top with sweats, shorts, or stretch-pants works well. Yoga is done with bare feet, so prepare to remove your shoes and socks when you arrive. Yoga mats are free to use during your first class. After that, students are asked to bring their own mat to class.

Pre-natal yoga
Our Gentle Yoga classes are appropriate for pregnant women.
