Welcome to yoga!

I’m Sarah McGrath, and I am truly looking forward to sharing yoga with you!


This class offers yoga as a natural process, combining simple movements, conscious breathing, and meditation to enhance our well-being and enjoyment of life.

Simply put, we do yoga to feel good; we work, but we don’t struggle.  This yoga practice is practical, safe, and appropriate for most people.

Scientific studies demonstrate yoga’s effectiveness as a complementary therapy for conditions including: hypertension, diabetes, headaches, mood disorders, back pain, cardiovascular disease, inflammation, insomnia, anxiety and depression. It has also been proven that yoga will improve balance, strength and flexibility, increase energy, and help with stress management.


Yoga classes will be offered both in-person and virtually, twice a week, most Tuesdays and Thursdays:

  • Tuesdays from 5:30-6:45 pm
  • Thursdays from 1:30-2:45 pm

Class Guidelines

All students are asked to review and agree to these guidelines; thank you for taking them to heart.

Welcome to yoga!

Class guidelines create a safe, serene, respectful, and welcoming environment;

they enhance individuals’ experiences, and promote unity in our group.

Creating this sense of comfort and safety promotes deep relaxation,

allowing participants to receive the full benefits which yoga offers.

Thank you for taking these guidelines to heart.

Class begins and ends on time.

You may arrive fifteen minutes before class begins to settle into meditation.

This transition time provides a meaningful segway into class;

please enter quietly, take a restful pose, and drop into meditation.

Stay for the entire class.

It is disturbing to the group if people arrive late or leave early.

Standard size yoga mats (68 inches x 24 inches) are required.

Please bring your own mat which meets these specifications.

Do not strain or force any movement.

 Struggling is contrary to the aims of yoga,

can result in injury, and can be disruptive to others in the class.

Modifications are always appropriate; you may rest at any time.

If you are consistently struggling, this class may not be appropriate for you.

Breathe normally.

The breath will be smooth, steady and barely audible.

Labored or erratic breathing indicates over-exertion, the need to modify your practice, and/or that this class may not be appropriate for you.

Practice good hygiene.

Come to class clean. Do not wear perfume or body sprays.

Please let me know if you have special needs, medical conditions or injuries which could affect your practice.
