Frequently asked questions
Is yoga a religion?
Yoga is not a religion. It is a philosophy that began in India an estimated 5,000 years ago, that provides a framework for spiritual growth and mastery over the physical and mental body.
It is not necessary to surrender your own religious beliefs to practice yoga; in fact, for many it deepens and strengthens their professed faith.
I'm not flexible- can I do yoga?
Yes! You are a perfect candidate for yoga. Many people think that they need to be flexible to begin yoga, but that's a little bit like thinking that you need to be able to play tennis in order to take tennis lessons.
What do I need to begin?
Your body and some comfortable clothing!
I've heard that yoga is all about relaxing and stretching. Will I get a workout?
Yes! It is also very much about strength training, balance, and coordination. There are cardiovascular benefits as well.
