FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Do I need Yoga experience to take a class?

No, you do not need Yoga experience to take most classes, but it is important, if you are a beginner, to let me know that before class. I do offer Beginning Yoga classes, and encourage you to explore those options.

Will I get a workout from your yoga class?

By definition yoga is a physical practice. That said, my approach to Yoga focuses on building strength and stability and developing physical and emotional self-awareness. If you are looking for power yoga, I can refer you to many wonderful options!

I have a chronic medical condition. Can I take your class?

Please talk with your doctor before beginning any new physical activity. With that said, yoga can bring relief to discomfort associated with many chronic issues. Please let me know about any conditions or concerns before taking a class.

Are your class fees negotiable?

I never want a class fee to stand between you and feeling great, so YES. If you are unable to pay the $10 class fee, please click the Pay In Person option at checkout. Private Classes and Workshops have higher fees, and can be negotiated individually.

  • You will need a computer, an ipad, or a cell phone to participate in the class

  • You can always contact me through this website or at lorynewmyeryoga@gmail.com, and I’ll be glad to help walk you through the process.

What supplies do I need for classes?

Your online yoga classes will be most enjoyable if you put in a little advance planning to create an environment, and have supplies right on hand, to support your practice. Most yoga props can be substituted with things you’ll have right at home.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • A Yoga Mat (An actual yoga mat is a good investment.)

  • A Block or something block-like —a stout book or two make good substitutions

  • A Strap - dog leash, belt, or neckties work well

  • A Bolster, sofa cushion, or pillows - something to give you support to sit on or place under pelvis or knees

  • A Chair, sturdy and armless – necessary for Chair Yoga, but always helpful if floor-sitting isn’t your thing

  • A Blanket (or several)

  • Water

Most importantly:

  • A quiet undisturbed location

What do I need to wear?

Wear layers of loose-fitting comfortable clothes so that you can adjust to feeling comfy throughout the practice.
