Q: What is your class schedule?
A: We hold 'studio' classes at two locations: Vinings Lake Church in Mableton, Ga., and at First Atlanta United Methodist Church in Atlanta, Ga. The latter location holds class on Wednesdays only. Those classes are complimentary and open to the public. All other classes are held at Vinings Lake Church. To see a complete schedule of times and locations visit shineagainyoga.com/classes.
Q: I've never done yoga before. What class or classes would be good for me to try?
A: For those who are inactive and have never tried yoga, we think our Thursday 6 p.m. Stretch class would be a great introduction. We also have a gentle Restorative class on Saturdays at 11 a.m. that would be ideal for those who like a more meditative practice. For those who are active (walking, biking, etc.), we think they would enjoy any class on our schedule. We always offer modifications and encourage everyone to practice where they feel safe and comfortable. Yoga is not a competition. It's a means of self care.
Q: What do I need to bring to class?
A: Bottled water is always nice. A yoga mat if you have one. (We have a limited number of mats you can borrow if needed.) A long sleeve shirt if you're prone to getting cold. And it's always nice to come with an open heart – for yourself and others.
Q: Are the yoga outings you hold throughout the year open to all levels
A: Yes. But know your limits. For instance, someone who has never hiked 2 miles would not enjoy a 5 mile trek through the woods over tree roots and boulders.
Q: I've never done SUP Yoga. Can I still sign up?
A: Yes. You have to start somewhere, right?! We do suggest being familiar with yoga beforehand. And it helps to be comfortable on the water. Life jackets can be worn during class, but if you're deathly afraid of the water, SUP Yoga may not be a good fit for you at this time.
Q: I don't have a bike, but I am interested in your BIKE + YOGA events.
If it's a SUP Yoga class, we prefer students to be comfortable on the water. Experience is not necessary, but being comfortable If it's a hike, we suggest students
