Yoga Classes for Beginners
When you're new to yoga, it can be hard to know where to start. Don't worry, at YogaWorks we love yoga newbies and we offer several class styles that serve as a great first step. Read more about our recommended classes for beginners and learn about how to prep for your first class.
Try a Vinyasa yoga class level 1-2 and expect a practice accessible for beginners. Learn the fundamentals of this popular style of yoga with more detailed explanations of the poses then the higher level classes which tend to move faster. You’ll feel empowered, energized and eager to come back.
Level 1 Classes
We recommend any of our classes that are designated as level 1 or level 1-2, such as YogaWorks , Yin , or Restorative yoga classes. Level 1 caters to beginning students and focuses on the basics. You'll be surrounded by both brand new and returning practitioners as well as more advanced yogis who want a refresh of the fundamentals.
The slower pace of Hatha yoga classes make them a great choice if you want a less strenuous approach to your practice. These extremely accessible classes are perfect for anyone looking to develop a practice of conscious, mindful movement with some support—from seniors to pregnant women to world-class athletes.

Booked my first class. What should I bring with me?
A yoga mat. If you do not have one, you can rent or buy one at the studio.
If you sweat a lot, bring a towel and some water. If you forget either, no problem. We have water for sale and towels for rent at the studio.
Wear comfortable clothes that you can move in but that also allows your teacher to see your alignment.
