New Students


Welcome to Shelburne Falls Yoga!Yoga 1 Kate

We are a welcoming and diverse community of yoga practitioners including brand-new students and lifelong practitioners ranging in age from 5 to 85.  We host a wide variety of classes and events designed to meet a range of needs and interests.  Do feel free to be in touch with any questions you may have about taking classes with us.


Signing up for classes

There are only a few classes on our schedule that require pre-registration.  These are denoted by a ** on our schedule.  All other classes are available for drop-in.  There is no need to sign up in advance for these and you are welcome to begin at any time during the session.


Your first day

Please plan to arrive 10-15 minutes early to meet your teacher and get acquainted with the studio (this is essential in order to complete necessary paperwork and get you settled before class begins).  If you have any previous or current injuries or other health conditions, please let your teacher know.  We have mats and props available for your use though you are also welcome to bring your own if you prefer.  No special attire is required--any comfortable clothing will do!


Where to start?

If you are a beginner, Friday morning Gentle Kripalu Yoga, Tuesday evening Yin Yoga, or Thursday evening Slow Flow Yoga are great places to begin. In addition, SFY director Kate Pousont Scarborough is offering 30 min individual yoga sessions for brand new students to help acquaint you to the practice of yoga, discuss any specific concerns or questions, and choose a class that works for you.  This is not necessary but can be a wonderful introduction to yoga!  

We look forward to meeting you soon!
