Alyssa Swink reviewed Maitri Yoga — 5 stars
Maitri has been such a blessing helping ease my stress, reconnect, and strengthen my body. A warm and welcoming environment to learn and grow in your yoga practice with people of all ages, skill levels, and body shapes. A wonderful place for someone new to yoga, like myself.

Diana Betz reviewed Maitri Yoga — 5 star
I have been practicing at Maitri for 9 months now. If you’re unsure about this place or about yoga, you will not regret giving this place a try. This is especially true if you’re in need of a warm, welcoming space with teachers who really do make an effort to make sure you’re having a good experience, no matter your reason for coming to class. Looking forward to my classes this week!

Christie Van Hese reviewed Maitri Yoga — 5 star
Love the small class size, the chanting and feel of community as a beginner yogi. I enjoy the space/decor and everyone has been very warm and welcoming here.

You’ve found a yoga home at Maitri.

Try out a class that fits within your schedule (you don’t have to pre-register for your first class). Our Foundations of Yoga + Breathing Class is perfect if you are new to yoga. Restorative Yoga Classes are also great for all levels because they are slower paced and very relaxing.

When starting a new practice like yoga or getting back into it, consistency is key.  Attending classes 2-3 times a week will be the most effective place to start.  If possible practice the same 2-3 classes each week and if you get a chance to take an extra class it is like a bonus.  Set realistic goals, stick to them and you will see results.

Although beginners can and do attend any of our classes, following are the very best options for absolute beginners:

Foundations of Yoga + Breathing is the perfect beginner class. You can stick with it as long as you’d like- we have many clients who have been practicing for years that enjoy this class.

Restorative Bliss/ Candlelight Restorative are relaxing, supportive classes that are slow paced that encourage stress release and instill a clam state of peace.

Mindful Flow offers a slightly slower pace than other flow yoga classes. It will develop strength, focus and body wisdom through mindful movement with the breath.

A few things to know about Maitri:

  • Our name is a Sanskrit word meaning “friendly” and we do our best to embody that in all we do.
  • We have mats and props available for you to use.
  • Wear comfortable workout clothing.
  • You don’t need shoes – we practice barefoot.
  • Feel free to bring a water bottle. (Not required, but recommended.)
  • Listen to your body and make your practice your own. Don’t worry about what the person on the mat next to you is doing. Yoga isn’t a competition.
  • We do chant “Om” at the beginning and end of most classes.  This is a sound that harmonizes and connects us to ourselves, each other and the greatness of the universe.  You can join in or stay silent, it’s up to you.
  • We like to keep things simple around here.  Registration is always appreciated but not required.
  • Please be mindful of other students and do not bring unnecessary items into the class room such as cell phones.
