We have a variety of classes, workshops and events for you to choose from. If you would like some information or guidance about where to begin please do not hesitate to email or come into our studio to meet with Lisa Matthews or our highly experienced certified instructors. We do however suggest you begin with one of our many stretch classes. We believe that yoga should be practiced mindfully. This means listening to your body, using props, and modifying poses. If you are new to the practice or if you have an injury or limitation, please let the instructor know so they may offer suggestions on how to take care of yourself during practice. Just remember to get on your mat and practice. The more yoga you practice, the more you benefit, and the better you will feel.

As many of us have transitioned to taking yoga stretch fitness classes at home, we have some suggestions for creating a space for your home practice. The best part about creating such a space is that there’s no wrong way to do this. All you need is a little time, some supplies, and your good intentions.
Clear enough space or choose an area that allows you to lie on your back and stretch your arms overhead. In the summer months, you may even go outside in your own yard, patio, or deck.
If you have traditional yoga props this is wonderful. But, please don’t worry if you don’t have traditional props, because you may improvise using items you already have at home. Consider using a towel (for a blanket), or a pillow, or try rolling two to three blankets in a tight and firm roll (for a bolster), thick books (for blocks), a belt from a bathrobe, scarf, belt or a jump rope (for a strap), and water bottles, soup cans or cork blocks (for hand weights). Creativity with props can be fun. Remember that each body and practice is special in its own way. Find props that work for you. If your creative props aren’t working well, contact me at 973-452-2828 to order cork blocks, resistance bands, or bolsters for your practice. We understand that having a space like this in your home is a luxury, so if space is limited, no worries! You will still have an awesome home practice. Just remember to get on your mat and practice!
