FAQs
Q?
I'm not very flexible.  Can I still do yoga?
A.
Of course!  Yoga works with your body to improve flexibility, balance and strength.  You don't need to be flexible to start, but don't be surprised if you find greater range of movement after just a few classes.  Yoga is very adaptable and postures can be modified for different levels of flexibility.
Q?
How can I sign up for a class?
A.
Look over our schedule to select the class that interests you most.  Download a copy of our waiver, complete it and bring it with you to class.  Feel free to contact Roberta Brodie of Amama Yoga by email:  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Q?
What should I wear to class and what should I bring with me?
A.
We suggest wearing something you can move comfortably in. Yoga is done barefoot therefore you do not need any special footwear. When attending a class you will need a yoga mat (your own or supplied by Amama Yoga) and water.
Q?
How is yoga different from stretching or other kinds of fitness?
A.
Unlike stretching or fitness, yoga is more than just physical postures. Patanjali's eight-fold path illustrates how the physical practice is just one aspect of yoga. Even within the physical practice, yoga is unique because we connect the movement of the body and the fluctuations of the mind to the rhythm of our breath. Connecting the mind, body, and breath helps us to direct our attention inward. Through this process of inward attention, we learn to recognize our habitual thought patterns without labeling them, judging them, or trying to change them. We become more aware of our experiences from moment to moment. The awareness that we cultivate is what makes yoga a practice, rather than a task or a goal to be completed. Your body will most likely become much more flexible by doing yoga, and so will your mind.
