We're Here to Help

I have never done yoga in my life.  What class should I take?
All of our classes are mixed levels which means the teachers instruct each class to accommodate any level of student. When you come into class, be sure to tell the instructor that you are new to yoga so that they can give you the best possible experience. Generally speaking the following classes move at a slower pace: Hatha, Core & Back, Core & Restore, Gentle Stretch & Flow, Restorative, Yoga for Back Care.

What if I can't do a pose?
Every body is different, and it is extremely important that you listen to your body and not push yourself to get into a pose that is not comfortable for you. Instructors can provide modifications for most poses so that you can find a variation that is more appropriate for your body on that particular day.

Which teacher is right for me?
The benefit of an unlimited month of yoga is you can try different teachers to see who you enjoy the most.   Each teacher at YOGA NoHo is highly qualified to lead a safe and rewarding class, but all have very different styles and backgrounds.

Is yoga for everyone?
Yes.  It doesn’t matter your age, gender, color, shape or size… there is something here for you.  With that being said, it is always important to listen to the guidance of your doctors and wellness professionals if there is any reason why you should not be practicing yoga or any form of exercise at this time.

Is it safe to practice if I am pregnant?
Absolutely, but if in doubt, please consult your doctor or midwife prior to taking a class.  If you prefer to take a regular yoga class and not one of our prenatal classes, be sure to let the teacher know you are pregnant so they can help you make the appropriate modifications.

  • No food or drink other than water is permitted.
  • Let your teacher know if you have any injuries before class begins.
  • Keep voices down while classes are in session.
