New to yoga?
New to yoga? Nice! We love our newbies and take care to ensure that everyone who steps through our doors feels comfortable and at ease. Being a newbie can be daunting, so we’ve compiled a few top tips to ensure that entry into your yoga practice is smooth:
Come to a Good Space Fundamentals class first. This is a survey of our 3 types of classes with a slower instruction into some of the more popular poses in a yoga sequence.
If you want to dive right into a regular class, all the power to you! Situate yourself somewhere in the middle so you always have bodies to look to.
Introduce yourself to your instructor before class and ask questions.
Listen to your body, and rest when needed.
New to Good Space?
Arrive 20 minutes before class to acquaint yourself with our space and get set up in our system.
We are more than just a studio. We designed Good Space for everyone to expand that good feeling from the mat into the community. We welcome you to take a time out in our space before or after practice.
Good Space knows life gets heavy. We provide mats and filtered water so your day isn’t weighed down getting to class.
New to meditation?
Welcome! Good Space is more than just an exercise studio — we are dedicated to spiritual and mental growth as much as the physical practice.
So how does meditation work, exactly? An untrained mind will often withdraw into default mode: it’s almost inevitable that we drift to thinking about something that has happened to us in the past or planning for something that we want to happen in the future. Meditation involves a concentration on the current, present moment, and we use our breath to aid in doing this.
Many times, meditating just feels like failing at meditating, and it really can be! Just like working a physical muscle, mindfulness takes practice and dedication. Don’t be discouraged if your mind wanders after only 10 seconds or so. Coming into your meditation practice with an open mind and accepting any kind of outcome that may occur is crucial to sticking with your practice. Simply taking the time to show up and sit quietly is half the battle. And the benefits make it more than worth it, so trust the process!
It’s all good.
