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 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 new to yoga, Friday morning Gentle Kripalu Yoga, Tuesday evening Yin Yoga, Thursday evening Slow Flow Yoga, or Sunday Morning Yoga are good places to begin. Some students prefer to schedule an individual session prior to a first class.  This is not necessary but can be a great way to accquaint yourself with the studio and practice prior to beginning your classes. Feel free to contact Kate via phone or email to schedule a session or to discuss which class might be a good fit for you.  

We look forward to meeting you soon!
