This workshop is designed for newbies but is also helpful for students who want to review the basics. This two-hour workshop is now free but you must sign up online.

Yoga Basics Classes
We recommend that everyone who is new to yoga take our Yoga Basics classes for at least 8 classes before progressing to the all levels classes. If you've dabbled in yoga for a while but never got too serious, you should start with Yoga Basics, too. We want you to have a good experience and that means starting with a class that's at your level. Check when Yoga Basics is scheduled here.
FAQ's about Yoga and UB Yoga Studios
Studio etiquette helps us all have a positive yoga experience.
Yoga is more than physical exercise. It is a transformative practice that integrates body, mind and spirit. Yoga practice is a way of releasing physical, mental, and emotional tensions to arrive at deeper levels of relaxation and awareness.
Is someone there at the studio all day?
At the Grove, we are often (but not always) there daytimes on the weekdays. We have weeknight reception from 5-7:30pm and weekend reception on Saturdays 8am-12pm and Sundays 5pm-7:30pm.
At Dogtown, no. Being a small neighborhood space, we're not there all day. The doors are open 15 minutes before each class. Get there early on your first visit so that you don't feel rushed.
What classes are for me?
Is it OK to eat before yoga class?
It's good to drink plenty of water before and after class, but try to come to class with an empty (or nearly empty) stomach.
What happens if the weather is bad?
You can check to see if we have cancelled class because of the weather by visiting our WebScheduler .
What is the WebScheduler?
The WebScheduler is our online studio management system. You can login to the system to purchase a drop-in, a class card, or a membership, to make appointments, to see an up-to-the-minute class schedule with substitutions or cancellations, to see a history of your attendance, and more. Visit the WebScheduler and have a looksy!
What should I bring to class?
We recommended to bring your own yoga mat, but if you don’t have one you can use one of ours. Other than that, you don't need to bring anything to your yoga class.
What should I wear to class?
Wear comfortable clothes that you can move in, and take off your shoes in the lobby before entering the studio practice space. You may find form fitting clothing is best as it stays out of your way as you move through poses, and practicing barefoot is ideal as it helps with grip on the mat. Limit use of perfume just before class.

What people say about UB Yoga
"Was great! Look forward to coming again tonight!"
"I thought Maggie was great! Really enjoyed the class."
"A very enjoyable experience! Maggie was wonderful and welcoming. I'm looking forward to the rest of the sessions in the prenatal class I'm enrolled in."
"Front desk staff were very friendly and quickly got my husband and I started on our 30/$30 deal. I took my first Yin class ever and loved it! the studio provided everything we needed which is a huge plus! Maddie did a great job of personalizing each person's yoga practice and helped everyone meet their own needs! She is very eager to help her students find balance in both body and mind."
"My time was wonderful. Maggie was a great instructor, I felt very comfortable even though I am a super beginner. Looking forward to many more classes!"
"I thought Angie was very professional and did an excellent job. My first class was a wonderful experience."
"Really enjoyed my first visit to UB Yoga! Felt very welcome and comfortable which helped me enjoy a wonderful relaxing practice led by Mallory. She did a great job balancing time in front of the class but also interacting with students helping them go deeper into their practice then they might have thought they were able to! Just a great great experience!"
"I had a wonderful first experience with UB!"
"Loved my first prenatal yoga class. Any muscle tightness/soreness was gone after the class. Felt amazing. Maggie was wonderful."
"Up until a couple weeks ago, I had been intimidated by yoga studios. I had a host of worries and uncertainties about my abilities, but was still intrigued by yoga and its extensive history. I saw the Groupon and decided it was the perfect opportunity to give it a try. I found it incredibly helpful to use the interactive website. I was able to orient myself with the location of the studio, the classes and the teachers, even schedule my first class, from the comfort zone of my computer."
"I am loving the Basics class. Joe is the perfect instructor for beginners (and advanced practitioners who’d like to brush up on their skills). Upon entering the studio my first visit, I let him know it was my first yoga class ever and he was really nice about explaining everything down to where I should place my mat. Any awkward or self-conscious feelings I had when I walked in were gone in time for opening meditation. His great teaching is what has me coming back to that class and I feel like I'm learning a lot. Because of my great introductory experience, I'm so excited about continuing yoga and incorporating it into my wellness routine!"
"Very friendly atmosphere and knowledgeable instructors. Affordable price for such great service!"
"Loved the Yoga 101 workshop! Instructor (Maddie) was very knowledgeable and made us all feel very at-ease. I now feel like I can confidently show up to a yoga class without being completely lost. "
"I liked the atmosphere. Will definitely come back."
"Friendly staff & nice class. Joined the $30/30 day deal- Excited to try other classes & the other location."
"The atmosphere is wonderful and everyone is extremely inviting! thank you!"
