Our goal at Focus Barre and Yoga is to create a warm, loving, non-competitive environment where you can practice and learn about yoga. Our teachers are passionate about yoga and care about you. They use their own voice and style to create an authentic class that is skillfully taught to provide you with an outstanding physical practice and a thought provoking message that will resonate with you throughout the rest of your day. The classes we offer are either 75 minutes or one hour, and both are designed to have you moving, breathing, sweating, and motivating you to obtain your personal goals.

Beginner Yoga

The beginner series focuses on the foundations of the practice. You will learn the proper mechanics, alignment and mindful actions of the body for over 35 postures.  You will receive individualized attention to gain flexibility, strength and balance. The class is welcoming to beginners, but can also be helpful to experienced yogis seeking more refinement while building a strong yoga practice. Whether you’re new to yoga, rehabilitating from an injury, returning to practice after time away or just want to strengthen the core of your practice.
