Trying Yoga



At Reach Yoga, we want you to know how much we value students who are new to yoga.  We really want you to practice here! Reach is dedicated to providing an atmosphere that feels very safe and comfortable for all students.  We work actively to promote a feeling of non-competition and non-judgment, which you’ll feel from the moment you join us.

Come to a class and see why so many of your friends and neighbors are practicing yoga! If you are hesitant, consider some of the reasons people haven’t tried yoga:
  • I’m not flexible. As Cindi Lee (founder of Om Yoga in New York City) says, that’s like saying, “I can’t take tennis lessons because I don’t know how to play tennis.” Silly, right?
  • I’m afraid that I can’t do it.  This is so normal and so human, to be nervous about trying something new. However, yoga is available across the lifespan; it can be geared to children, teens, adults, and seniors.
  • I’m not in good shape. Yoga is for every body: tall/short, skinny/heavy, young/old, healthy/ill, handicapped or not. Yoga–by definition–accepts you and meets you exactly where and how you are. That’s one of the most beautiful and refreshing aspects of this practice. You do not need to look a certain way or wear certain clothes to “fit in” here. Yoga IS for you.
  • It’s weird. No, it’s not. Fifteen million Americans practice yoga, and that number is increasing by as much as 20% each year.* We will teach you the foundational yoga poses using their English names (versus Sanskrit which can be intimidating to beginners), we will work at a gentle pace, and there will not be (nor is there ever at our studio) anything that happens here that conflicts with your personal religious beliefs.
  • It’s just for women. For the record, worldwide and historically, yoga has been principally practiced by men. At Reach, we happen to see more women than men. However we have a wonderfully high number of men who practice with us regularly!
  • I’m too old. Please don’t deny yourself the pleasure and the health benefits of this practice because of your age. Yoga will make you stronger and more flexible, and will improve your balance no matter your age!

It’s Your Practice and Yoga is for EVERY BODY.
