WE PRACTICE YOGA TO TAKE CARE OF OURSELVES.
Rise is a community of people who use yoga to take care of their hearts, bodies, and minds. In a world so full of stress we use yoga and meditation to feel better in our bodies and calmer in our minds. A natural consequence is that we are more clearly connected to who we are and what we value.
WE PRACTICE YOGA TO TAKE CARE OF THE COMMUNITY
We believe that taking care of ourselves is the best gift we can give to others. When we have less pain, when we move in ways that feel really good in our bodies, when our minds are more calm, we are generally kinder to others. If there’s one thing we know, it’s that being kind makes a difference.
It’s gotta start with someone. It might as well be you. Come join our community.
THINGS TO KNOW
All ARE WELCOME HERE
There is no right skin color, age, gender, sexual orientation, length of time you’ve been practicing, or hierarchy.
If you’ve been to other studios and felt like you didn’t fit in, come take class with us. We might just be your yoga home.
THERE IS NO “RIGHT” CLOTHING
You don’t need $80 yoga pants to practice here. Wear what you are comfortable in. (If you love $80 yoga pants, still come practice here. #allarewelcomehere)
THERE IS NO PERFECT POSE
There are only people exploring the bodies that they have.
YOU DON’T ALWAYS HAVE TO BE DOING WHAT EVERYBODY ELSE IS DOING
You are always welcome to change your shape or do something different entirely. We’re skeptical of any studio or teacher that requires conformity.
YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE FLEXIBLE TO PRACTICE YOGA
Yoga is one of the few physical fitness modalities that can actually help you improve flexibility. So for the love of all things, don’t let inflexibility prevent you from trying yoga.
YOGA CAN MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN YOUR MENTAL HEALTH, PHYSICAL HEALTH AND THE OVERAL QUALITY OF YOUR LIFE
Your doctor, friend, sister, brother, that newspaper article wasn’t lying when they said that.
