How To Start Yoga at Shine Yoga Center

If you would like a supportive way to return to practice, to work in a more methodical way, are a new beginner yourself, or you know someone who would benefit from a slow-paced class focused on instructional yoga, please check out and share the details about our upcoming 6-week New Beginner & Back To Basics Series which begins next Wednesday, February 16th. Join Becky Jauch on Wednesdays from 6-7 pm. Runs from 2/16 - 3/23. Find more details regarding prices and registration below.

 

As the world begins to open up, we are here for you. We are still requiring reservations just to help us manage class sizes and unforseen cancellations. If this has been a hinderance for your return to practice, please drop us a line at info@shineyoga.com and we'll help you navigate coming back to classes when you are ready.

The most cost effective way to practice with us is with a class pass. You can use your class pass for any of our regular classes. While you do need a reservation at this time, you can mix and match any classes that you like. You can also drop-in for classes if you aren't ready to commit to a regular practice at this time. Please note that there are different prices for in-person and on-line classes so please make sure you purchase the appropriate pass for your practice plans. These packages are not interchangeable. 

Here's how to sign up and pay for classes....

  1. Go to www.shineyoga.com

  2. Click the big red "Sign Up" button at the top of the page.

  3. Shine's MindBody portal will pop up.

  4. Click the "Sign-Up" link next to the class you want to take. Be sure that you are selecting the appropriate in-person or live-stream.

  5. You will next need to sign in to your Shine MindBody account if you have one or create a new one.

  6. If you have practiced with us previously, you will already have an account. Try using your email and password recovery to access your account. If you have trouble, please feel free to send an email to info@shineyoga.com for help. It may take us a day or two to reply.

  7. If you want to purchase a class pass, rather than a single class, don't be alarmed when it says "Book a Single Reservation." Once you click that button, you will have the option to purchase a single class or to purchase a class pass.

  8. If you have not been back to Shine since Covid, you will need to fill out a new waiver. We have them at the studio but you can also download one here and bring it in to the studio.

  9. Teachers arrive to the studio about 15-minutes before class.

  10. We look forward to seeing you back in the studio soon.

Which Class is Right For Me?

Our Basics/Beginners is a generally a good choice for your first class with us here at Shine. As the name suggests, we work on the basics in this class which is good for those who prefer a basic and balanced yoga practice or who are just beginning. This level will take you through the fundamental practices of yoga which includes: breath & posture work, introductory meditation & contemplation, and relaxation. Students should be able to comfortably get up and down off the ground. 

  • Basic/Beginner classes are held on: Mondays from 11 - 12:15, Mondays 7:15 - 8:30 pm, Tuesdays from 6 - 7:15 pm, and Thursdays from 7:30 - 8:45 pm

At times, we also offer a "New Beginner Series" so that students can commit to a series of classes that build on each other to help students feel comfortable and empowered in their yoga practice. Students can sign up for the whole series or can drop in when they can. We are working on setting dates for our next Beginner Series now. Stay tuned for details. Click here to sign up for our studio newsletter and find us on Facebook and Instagram to stay up to date with our special series and events. 

Our Gentle classes are offered for those who have some challenges with daily movement. Perhaps you have joint pain, are carrying a little extra weight that makes movement challenging, are recovering from an injury or living with a chronic condition that makes movement challenging, or just want to start off very slow and gently. In those cases, these classes are designed just for you. There is general joint movement in these classes but we take extra time and offer many variations to help all students feel like they have a space to move safely and comfortably.

  • Gentle classes are offered: Mondays from 11 - 12:15, Wednesdays from 11:30 - 12:30, and Thursdays from 11:30 - 12:30

Restorative, Yinnish, and Mantrasana classes are our most gentle classes and in general are geared for gentle, passive stretching and deep relaxation.

  • Restorative Sun 4:30 - 6, Yin-ish Tues. 11:30 - 12:30, Mantrasana Tues. 7:30 - 8:30 pm
