Getting Started

Experience the power of a true classical Yoga experience. We offer free trial classes. If you are a total beginner or want to learn more about the roots of practicing Yoga, our beginners’ courses (Yoga 1, Yoga 2, Yoga 3) will help guide you with ease and a clear understanding of all the benefits Yoga has to offer. Beginners’ courses are the best way to get a good foundation and guidance for establishing a regular practice.

If you would like to try a class, and you are a local, living in the Chicago area, you are welcome to join an Open drop-in class, and your first class is FREE!  

This offer does not apply to specialty classes or to out of town students.

We want you to have the most comfortable and pleasant experience possible at the Center. Here are some recommendations to follow for our classes and courses:

  • Try to avoid eating anything heavy for at least two hours before a class.

  • Please let your instructor know, before the class, if you have any injuries, serious health conditions, recent surgeries, high blood pressure, pregnancy, etc.

  • If you prefer not to be assisted or corrected by the teacher, please notify the teacher before the class starts.

  • Please ensure that you silence your cell phone before you enter class.

  • Wear loose, modest, comfortable clothing that will allow for freedom of movement and breath.

  • You may wish to bring your own yoga mat or a large towel to cover the mats we provide.

  • You may wish to bring your own water bottle: a water dispenser is available in reception.
