No! The beauty of yoga is that anyone young or old, athletic or not, large or small can practice. Yoga is a personal practice and we encourage each student to move at their own pace without pushing their body. We honor each student's individual ability, and we work with cues and actions (the key being mindfulness of the body!) to help you ﬁnd an optimal place for yourself in every pose.
All teachers at Bodhi Tree Yoga are highly-trained and have completed hundreds or thousands of hours of intensive study and teacher training. These areas of training include anatomy, yoga therapeutics, and kinesiology. We are committed to helping you stay healthy & discover your fullest potential on the mat (and off!). Any injuries or limitations are honored and respected, and all BTY teachers have training and experience working with students with injuries and chronic health conditions. Please let us know if you have any questions!
Advance registration is required for our livestream classes via Zoom. It takes just a few minutes to log in or create an account and sign up for class. You can join any class right up until it begins. Zoom broadcast links are listed with any class that you are signed up for; you just need to be logged in to your account for the link to appear!
Since we are all practicing in our own spaces, please wear what is comfortable for you! In general, it's good to wear clothing that allows for easy movement. You will want to see your feet and knees, so plan to practice barefoot, though socks are fine for resting poses! Layers are helpful if you tend to run hot or cold. An empty-ish stomach is best, but definitely trust your own instincts with this.
The beauty of being online is that there are no snow cancellations! However, if the power/internet goes out, we'll update the website and send e-mails out to anyone signed up for any cancelled classes.
We offer many different class cards with both shorter and longer expiration dates to give you lots of choices that will accommodate home & travel schedules. But we understand that life can feel extra-busy sometimes! So, if you need an extension on your class card, please let us know before your card expires.
We are happy to extend your card’s expiration date by 1 week, but cannot grant longer extension periods except in cases of emergency or injury. Please let Amy Jo or Cathy know if your situation falls under one of these categories, and we can work something out. Many thanks for your understanding!
