Yoga 1 Studio offers a sacred space for dedicated yoga practice, suited to the needs of all individuals. Each class may have a different emphasis: Standing Poses, Backbends, Sun Salutations or Restorative Yoga. Our clientele is composed of people of all ages and walks of life.

Classes at the Studio begin with a five-minute silent meditation or Restorative Yoga posture. Please plan to arrive ten minutes before the start of class to set up your place, as well as to discuss any physical concerns with your yoga instructor. We take our shoes off, turn off our cell phones and set up our mats for practice. All of the in-studio classes are an hour and a half (Zoom classes are one hour). We use yoga props such as sticky mats, blocks, blankets, chairs and yoga belts (all provided) to create better alignment in the yoga postures, and to aid in holding the poses longer. Bring your own sticky mat if you wish.

Please call Susan first to book your attendance for an in-studio class; or for sign-on information for Zoom classes
