YOU'RE ABOUT TO TAKE THE FIRST STEP TOWARD A NEW YOU
The hardest thing about starting yoga is walking into a yoga studio for the first time. We invite you to let go of ideas of what yoga is and what type of person practices yoga. Everyone can practice yoga, and at Peak Yoga, nearly everyone does. Regardless of flexibility, age or physical fitness, you're welcome here.
Don't worry if during your first class you aren't able to touch your toes. The more you practice, the more you'll experience an overall relaxation of your muscles and connective tissue, and eventually, seemingly impossible poses will become possible. Most likely, you'll start to notice that chronic aches and pains diminish or even disappear entirely. That's no coincidence. By relaxing your muscles and connective tissue you allow your body to return closer to a healthy alignment and optimal posture, reducing pain, improving sleep and brightening your overall mood.

WHERE TO START?
We recommend starting with the Introductory Offer of $49 for 30 days. That gives you a chance to attend as much as you want and see how you feel with a regular yoga practice.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I PRACTICE?
With the Introductory Offer of $49 for 30 days you have access to unlimited yoga. Take advantage of this opportunity. Plan to attend 3-4 classes a week. Learn what you like about different classes, instructors and times. You may surprise yourself. For example, practicing at 6:00 am is very different than practicing at 5:30 pm, but completely worth the early-morning alarm! We suggest you try it at least once and see how you feel when you start your day with yoga.
Maintain a frequency of at least 3 classes a week as you develop a regular practice and you'll rapidly see changes in your body, sleep and mood.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AT MY FIRST CLASS?
Your instructors will offer you options so that you are comfortable in the postures. We know that a yoga practice is be different every day, and a posture that was comfortable yesterday may be challenging today. That's typical. Do your best and you'll receive 100% of the benefits, even if you can't touch your toes.
Evening and weekend classes at Peak Yoga are usually 75 minutes, morning and daytime classes usually 60 minutes.
Most classes are moderately heated (75-80 degrees) with some added humidity. Heat relaxes muscles and connective tissue, allowing your body to move safely deeper into the posture. Flow classes will be a bit warmer than that, but none of our classes are warm enough to be called "Hot Yoga".
WHICH CLASSES SHOULD I ATTEND?
New students are welcome in all classes! No previous yoga experience necessary. Instructors will teach postures with options for modifications so that all students are able to adjust the postures as they desire.
The schedule below has been filtered for classes that new students tend to like the most. Some instructors have a style which is a favorite among new students - please call us at 970.668.0331 or email firstname.lastname@example.org with additional questions.
