Beginner Yoga Workshop

Sunday, Jan. 6, 2019, 1-3pm

Are you new to yoga or at least new to yoga in a studio? You don't need to be flexible, fit, own yoga pants, or even a yoga mat for this introductory class! This workshop introduces participants to the fundamentals of yoga including breathing (pranayama), some common foundation poses (asana) and how yoga can help quiet the mind and bring more peace to anyone. We'll also discuss basic yoga studio and class etiquette so that students feel comfortable enrolling in a class at any studio. Beginners of any level are welcome. Fee: $30 .

Thanks for your interest in Balancing Owl Yoga.  We are located at 6017 Post road in Dublin. As a new student to our studio, here are a few things to help you get started and hopefully answer most of your questions:

What Class Should I Take?

Any level 1 class is also appropriate for beginners. For a complete list of classes and descriptions, click here or contact us for questions.

What Should I Know As A New Student?

What to bring and wear: Wear comfortable clothes, preferably dress in layers, and bring a refillable water bottle (we have filtered water to refill). Bring a mat if you have it, or feel free to borrow one of ours located in a basket in the back of the room (after class, use the spray/towel provided to wipe down mat before returning).

Personal belongings: When entering our studio, please remove your shoes and hang coats/belongings in space provided in the front hallway. We lock the outside doors, but feel free to bring them into the studio as well of you're more comfortable. Ensure you turn off your cell phones before entering the building as other classes may be in session. 

Sign in: If you have pre-registered online, go to the registration desk, sign in, and you'll be directed to your class. Please let the instructor know if you are a new student.

Please be on time: Please allow yourself enough time to sign in and settle into class. On your first visit to our studio, please arrive 10-15 minutes early to fill out paperwork prior to the beginning of class. During most classes, the outside door will be locked 5 minutes after the class start time to allow for your safety.

Yoga Props: As you enter the class, find a space for your mat. Take note of which props the instructor has assembled on their mat and find the same props for your space, or any you think you'll need for your practice. We also suggest taking an eye pillow and round bolster for shavasana (meditation) at the end of practice. After class, please return all props to their appropriate place. Be mindful to refold blankets to their original fold and clean borrowed mats.

Noise Level: We have 3 rooms at the studio so there is a good chance other classes are in session. While in the front entryway or registration area, please hold your conversations to a whisper to show respect for other clients

Other Recommendations:

  • Refrain from wearing strong scents to class.

  • Yoga clothes should be stretchy and invite movement within the body. We recommend practicing in bare feet or with yoga grip socks.

  • Always practice at your own comfort level and let the teacher know if you have any injuries or would like modifications for any pose. We also encourage you to connect with your instructor after class to ask questions about the class.

  • The more you practice, the greater you will feel!

Can My son/Daughter attend class with me?

If you have a child between the ages of 12 – 17, they may attend class with you or another adult. If your child is under 12, we don’t typically recommend that they attend an adult class.  Children should be registered and paid for separately.
