Choosing Your First Class at VY&F
We have all been the new person in class.
We have also had the experience of not knowing what to expect, where to go, and what to do. We expect that those new to VY&F will not know some of the terminology, yoga poses or cues. It’s ok. There is no judgement whatsoever.
We recommend that you go at your own pace, take breaks and observe some, if desired.
Having an open mind about your first experience at VY&F is a great way to start your yoga journey.
what Yoga Classes Are Offered?
Although our class formats are all based on ashtanga yoga and have similarities, the differences between the formats may help you decide what class is best for you. We also believe that any class offered is reasonable for all participants and do not label classes as “beginner” or “advanced.”
