Yoga is a system of physical and mental practices that originated more than 6,000 years ago. Yoga improves overall health and the quality of life by reducing the levels of stress and fatigue we may carry in our body. You will find yourself feeling more connected to mind, body and spirit every time you practice. Yoga is for everyone, although there may be certain class styles that are a better fit for your body. We encourage you to read the descriptions of the classes offered at the studio before selecting a class to join.
Your yoga practice can be modified to adapt to injuries. However, it is important to give your body ample time to rest and relax after an injury. We recommend that you get approval from your doctor before re-starting or starting yoga. Once you get the green light, check with our teaching team to determine what might be the best place to start and modifications that would be helpful. Remember that you are your best teacher. Listen to your body.
Wear comfortable exercise pants or leggings and top made of a breathable fabric. Yoga is practiced with bare feet to prevent slipping on your mat.
* We have suspended the use of studio mats/props for the time being. Please bring your own mat or purchase one from the studio. You may also want to bring a water bottle.

Absolutely. We recommend practicing regularly to gain more flexibility and strength. All of our classes engage and stretch your muscles, improving your balance, focus and range of motion.
Most of our classes are 60 minutes in length. Check the schedule ahead of time to make sure you have enough time for you class. At the beginning of the practice there is a warming up period (this varies by style of yoga and teacher) followed by asanas (the poses) and then relaxation at the end. During some classes, teachers may play music and if the class is heated, this will be notes on the schedule. During the practice, the teacher will name, describe and/or demonstrate the poses (asanas) and provide instruction, physically and/or verbally, as to form, gaze, alignment and breath.
Most of our classes have a variety of skill levels; some joining for their first time and some for their 100th. You can expect real people. You can expect to feel welcome and included. We invite you to come as you are.
B Inspired offers a variety of yoga classes, each with unique benefits. Carefully read the descriptions of the classes and if you have questions about the studio, reach out to us. We are here for you!
OM is an ancient mantra, a primordial vibration. It is so old that its very nature is innately sacred. In many of our classes we start and end with the sound of OM. This signifies unity and harmony for all humans. If you are not comfortable with this tradition, we suggest setting a personal intention for your practice.
Namaste means: “The Light in Me Honors The Light in You.” Reciting Namaste enables individuals to come together from a place of love and connection.
