Ready for Slow Flow
Frequently Asked Questions
I’m not flexible, will I be able to do yoga?
Yes! Even the most inflexible among us are able to enjoy yoga. In fact, if you’re not flexible, that’s the best reason of all to begin practicing. After years of stiffening up, yoga can help you stretch and lengthen your muscles and connective tissues - increasing range of motion and restoring what you’ve lost.
What if I can’t do pose X?
There are thousands of poses and variations in yoga, and we’re not aware of anyone who can do them all. Yoga is highly individualized because each person has a unique body that will find ease where others encounter challenge and vice versa. Even if you can’t immediately get into a pose, our instructors offer modifications that will allow you to achieve a similar stretch in your body.
How many beginner classes should I take before moving into Slow Flow?
This always depends on the individual, but if we were pressed for a number, it would be four. Across four classes, you’ll likely experience a range of poses that will leave you prepared for your first slow flow class.
I HAVE AN INJURY AND YOGA WAS RECOMMENDED AS PART OF MY RECOVERY. SHOULD I START WITH beginner yoga?
No. While yoga is great for injury prevention and recovery, the practice has to be tailored to the injury. We suggest starting with a restorative or yin class first so you can listen carefully to your body, identify what movements are and are not accessible, and have more time to better assess yourself. Also, be sure to arrive 15 minutes before class and discuss your injury with your instructor.
