You might be thinking, "WHOA! Are these prices for real? They're so much lower than most everywhere else in the greater Atlanta area!"
Here's our response:
Yep. These prices are real. We are committed to creating an accessible, welcoming environment for our community. Being budget-friendly is a big part of that. For us, yoga is about connection, self-care, and wellness. It might *feel* luxurious sometimes, but it shouldn't be an out-of-reach luxury item. If you agree with us, we hope you'll sign up for some classes and become a part of our growing community.
Yoga promises increased flexibility, strength, and balance, and sure, that all sounds great... but it's hard to get started. We get that. Formerly known as "yoga for every body", this class is great for beginners. You will be guided through a series of postures intended to bring movement to your joints, awareness to your breathing, and circulation throughout your body. Unlike YG Foundations, this class is NOT focused on building strength, but rather on finding greater ease of movement through increased flexibility and on bringing stillness to the mind. There's no such thing as too inflexible, too out of shape, too clumsy, too far gone, or too uncoordinated for this class. All you need is a body. We'll do our best to make sure that when you leave, you'll feel a little better than you did when you came in. (And if you already have a solid foundation, this class will provide plenty of instruction geared towards you, too.) Teachers of Gentle Yoga classes are committed to facilitating a positive yoga experience for anyone and everyone who wants to give it a try. Sequences of poses will vary from class to class, depending on the needs of that day's students. Teachers check in with individual students to encourage and support safe ways of strengthening and stretching, always respecting individual comfort levels with regards to attention and hands-on adjustments. You will hear over and over in this class that if it hurts, don't do it. That doesn't mean that you won't have plenty of opportunities to develop and deepen your practice, but yoga should never hurt. Every class will end in savasana, a period of deep relaxation that helps you to fully absorb the benefits of your yoga practice. This class is for you if: Your body craves movement, and you'd like to take it slow. And/or if you are looking for a quiet, calm retreat from the chaos of the outside world. Especially great for those recovering from injury, just getting back into exercise, or concerned about feeling "behind" in another kind of yoga class.
Interested in yoga but don't know where to start? Start here! Get stronger, learn about proper alignment and discover ways to move through an Asana practice in a supported, beneficial way. Although this class is geared towards beginners, it may be physically challenging at times. Modifications will always be offered.
This class is for you if: You are new to yoga, want to take things a bit slower, or are looking to revisit the principles of poses and flow

Start 'em young! For pre-crawling babies and those who love them. This class provides relaxation and restoration at a pace suitable for all fitness levels.

Not a beginner anymore? Feel like you can hang out pretty comfortably in downward-facing dog pose? Connecting breath to movement more or less makes sense to you, even if you don't always remember to do it? In these vinyasa-inspired classes, you will build on your foundation.
