Yoga at Woodlands

“The Mastery of Yoga must not be measured simply by the ability to master the techniques of yoga like asana and pranayama, but how it influences our day to day living, how it enhances our relationship with ourselves and how it promotes clarity and peace of mind”

NEW TO YOGA.. WELCOME!

If you are new to YOGA Woodlands is the perfect introduction to yoga as we introduce to the important aspects of a yoga practice, as well as allowing you to experience its benefits in a holistic way when combining it with our healing spa experiences.

What is yoga? Yoga is a tradition and a science with roots in ancient India that has evolved over centuries to embrace the wisdom of many places and times. Throughout history, it has been split into various “schools” focusing on different aspects of yoga. Each branch is of the same tree, the tree of the Self. Yoga means union.

What religion is yoga? Yoga is not a religion at all. It is a science of the breath and movement. Should I eat before class? It is ideal to practice on an empty stomach, or at least 2 1/2 hours after eating.What should I wear? Comfortable clothes you can move easily in are best for yoga. T-shirts and loose, stretchy pants work best. Yoga is practiced barefoot. You can change into your clothes upon arrival.

What should I bring? A yoga mat, shawl or light blanket, and an eye covering are recommended. We do however supply you with all of the above.Do I need to register in advance? Not for the morning classes. Just come a few minutes early to check in at the desk and acquaint yourself with our center.

Can I do yoga if I am pregnant? Yes! Definitely, and you can safely attend anyone of our classes. Please inform us!

What if I’m running late? Classes are open to all latecomers. We would prefer you get some practice rather than no practice at all.
