“I want to try a yoga class”


Question: "I want to try a yoga class. I mean, it looks fun and I think I'd like it, but that's so different than what I'm used to with treadmills, ellipticals and weights. How do I get involved in taking a yoga class and feel like I belong?"

Answer: "It may be out of your comfort zone to try a new class, but that's where changes happen...when you do something different and take a leap. We have plenty of yoga classes to help you feel comfortable and which can improve your balance and flexibility."
