As Baron Baptiste says, "Build your house on a rock." As a Baptiste Power Yoga Affiliate Studio, we offer beginner classes for those interested in a power yoga practice. We also offer beginner level Foundations classes to prepare those students who prefer a traditional hatha practice. For those who are looking for a way to ease into yoga in an environment where all students in the class are pure beginners we offer a three-class New-to-Yoga Beginners Series.
what is Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga?
Baron says it best in 40 Days to Personal Revolution: Baptiste Power Vinyasa Yoga is a purposeful practice that will build flexible and integrated strength, help rinse out toxins and dissolve tensions, and, if need be, release excess weight from your body, so you can have a stable and balanced foundation from which to flow in life.
frequently asked questions
What do I need to do before my first class?
Nothing. Just come about 10 minutes before the scheduled class time to sign in. We will show you where you can change your clothes, take off your shoes, use the bathroom and get to the yoga studio.
What should I wear?
Wear comfortable clothes that will stretch. Avoid baggy tees that tend to fall over your head when you bend over. The room temperature in the Power Vinyasa classes is 85-90 degrees — so dress in layers. Yoga is done in your bare feet.
Do I need to bring anything?
If you have a yoga mat, please bring it. If not, we rent mats for $3 and yogitoes skidless towels for $1, which we wash after each use; we also sell mats and yogitoes in the boutique. If you are taking a Power Vinyasa class you can bring a water bottle and a towel — also available in our store.
What if I can’t touch my toes or have never been able to avoid distraction long enough to meditate?
You are in the right place. As Baron Baptiste says, “It’s a yoga practice, not a yoga perfect.” We all have a lot to learn and breathe® is a place to come practice.
Should I eat before I come to class?
Having something light in your stomach before class is fine to keep energy and blood sugar levels up, but avoid any heavy or large meals for at least 2 hours before class. Also, you will have a better experience if you come to class hydrated.
