Page Headline: Mission Mission: It is Authentic Yoga Life’s duty to create a safe, non-competitive, non-judgmental environment to facilitate, through the practice of yoga and personal growth programs, opportunities to discover authenticity and empowerment on all levels: physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

  • Yoga is for everybody and every “body.”
  • Yoga is not a religion nor does it subscribe to a particular set of beliefs.
  • A daily practice is optimal; however, 3 times a week is highly recommended. A consistent yoga practice strengthens and opens as well as releases and relaxes stress  and holding patterns in the mind and body.
  • Yoga increases your energy!
  • It is best to practice on an empty stomach, so allow two hours after a meal before practice.
  • Make sure you are well hydrated before class; this includes both water and electrolytes.
  • This is your practice, so listen to your body. Forcing your body beyond its limits can result in persistent pain and/or lead to serious injury. Know when to challenge  yourself and when to rest.
  • You will need to bring a yoga mat, a hand towel and water. We do have all of these items available in the studio for rental or purchase, but we highly recommend  bringing your own for hygienic reasons.
  • Be prepared to practice barefoot with loose/stretchy comfortable clothes, for all classes. Avoid clothing with zippers and buttons.
  • Please arrive 10–15 minutes early to sign in. Classes will begin promptly, and the door will be locked shortly after class begins, so please be on time!
  • The practice room is kept warm — approximately 90–95 degrees for safe stretching and movement, unless noted on the schedule.
  • Please do not wear heavy cologne or perfumes.
  • If you have an injury or any other serious health condition, please let your teacher know before class begins.
  • We recommend online registration to reserve your space in class; however, it is not necessary. Signing in at the front desk is required before every class.
  • Yoga is fun and full of community! The class won’t be the same without you — so BRING IT!
