We believe yoga is accessible to everyone, no matter what their limitations.
Each posture and practice can be modified to allow students to develop a strong, healthy, safe yoga routine.
In addition to the Brand New Beginner’s course see below.
Metrowest Yoga offers a variety of options for students new to yoga. There are classes geared toward beginner’s on our regular schedule. See Schedule page and look for classes with “beginner” in title. The “Slow Flow” classes are also a good place for newer students who want to start a bit slower.

This course is a great way to begin your journey into Yoga. We’ll teach you the fundamental principles of the Myoga Hatha series and some of the basics of Myoga Flow. The course will work quickly to improve your posture, alleviate pain, and focus your mind. The breathing we practice sends calming signals to your parasympathetic nervous system that will make you feel relaxed and energized. You will also find you sleep better and want to eat better as well. After 6 sessions, you will understand why yoga is the oldest, most effective system of wellness in existence. We encourage all beginner’s to attend this course as well as intermediate students to help them deepen their understanding of the practice and the basics of how yoga works. Each class builds on the next.
This course will provide students with a guide book that illustrates the basic postures and describes in simple detail the basics of yoga and the principles we teach at Metrowest Yoga.
Each course will inlcude a detailed instruction manual and a free mat!
If you miss one of the six classes in a session, you can make it up with the next one.
