New To Twisters? Frequently Asked Questions
I’m new to Yoga. What classes should I take?
If you are brand new to Yoga and are feeling nervous or uncomfortable about jumping into regular group classes, then we recommend starting with our Yoga Basics Classes. This is a wonderful program that will build your confidence and strength to move into our Classic Hatha or Vinyasa Flow Level I/II Group Classes. Yoga Basics doesn't work with your schedule? Try our Intro To Privates Package
If you don’t feel like you need Yoga Basics classes and are comfortable starting with our regular classes, we recommend you begin with our Classic Hatha classes or Hot Yoga Express. Once you are comfortable here and want to expand your practice, you can try Vinyasa Flow Level I/II. Yin Yoga is also a great option for those who are looking for deep muscle lengthening and joint lubrication. Yin Yoga consists of floor-based postures that will help with your joint range of motion and increase circulation throughout the body. The more you practice and learn your body and breath, the more you can explore our options and the levels we offer. I’m new to Barre. What classes should I take?
Barre is an exercise class that will leave you feeling stronger and leaner after each class. Begin with All Level Classes. Our Erdenheim and Ambler Studios offer many All Level classes that you can explore. Level II/III Classes are more advanced for the student who has a strong foundation and is interested in getting a rigorous workout.
