WHAT TO EXPECT
Expect to feel good! First, listen to yourself and respect your own limits as you begin or deepen your Yoga practice. All of our Montclair yoga classes are designed for you to have an experience of opening; through flowing movements & various stretching sequences. All of our Morristown yoga classes are led by certified instructors that are highly trained & here, specifically, to help you feel better in your body. The teacher begins each class with a centering, followed by an hour and fifteen minutes of asana and closed with a meditative rest. You may feel lost at times, which is normal. Simply pause, open your heart and listen to the words of your teacher and the movement will come. Welcome.
