Starting anything new can be intimidating! We’re here to support you through this new journey.
Read on if you’re new! We are here to welcome you into The Practice and start supporting you in body, mind, and spirit.
Starting a regular practice is an excellent way to improve your health and overall wellness. Through the practice of various mindbody classes, you can increase flexibility, strength, and balance in body and mind.
You’ll notice we employ a focus on breath. These techniques can help improve lung capacity and overall cardiovascular health. The breath is the tool to connect the body and the mind, and strengthening this connection will reduce stress and anxiety levels, as they help calm the mind and reduce feelings of tension and overwhelm.
There are countless studies that show regular bodymind connection can also be beneficial for mental health. Our classes cultivate mindfulness and somatic practices which can help calm the mind and improve focus. It has been shown to be effective in reducing symptoms of anxiety and depression, and can even help improve sleep quality.
Our approach at The Practice is to promote autonomy - you are the expert in your own being, we’re here to support you through movement and stillness, in community, to reconnect to yourself. We do that by intentionally searching for discomfort (which can be found in any of our classes) and noticing what the reaction is. We use somatic and mindfulness approaches to support you in your journey to wellness.
Through our different class types, you’ll find the variety needed to fill your proverbial cup up. Taking this time for yourself to join one of our convenient group classes, you’ll learn about movement and stillness, and how to bring these practices into your day (off of your mat).

We get asked often “where should I start?” All of our classes are intended for all - our approach isn’t about the hierarchy of the physicality of doing the shape or movement, it’s about developing a relationship with yourself.

Why 21 Days is a Good Way to Commit to a Practice
Starting a new habit can be challenging, but committing to a new practice for 21 days can help make it a permanent part of your routine. This is because it takes approximately 21 days to create a new habit, and practicing showing up for yourself consistently can help establish a routine that will be easier to maintain over the long term.
Committing to a 21-day movement practice can help you develop a deeper understanding of the practice and its benefits. It can help you identify which poses and sequences work best for you, and help you develop a routine that is tailored to your specific needs.
During this period, it's essential to be patient and gentle with yourself. Starting a new practice can be challenging, and it's okay to take things slow and make modifications as needed. It's also important to remember that progress isn't always linear, and that it's okay to have setbacks and days where you don't feel like practicing. The important thing is to stay committed to the practice and trust the process.
This is why we offer our Intro Rate of 21 days, try our variety of classes, meet our community, reap the benefits!
