+What does Om Shanti mean?

Om Shanti comes from the beautiful and ancient language of Sanskrit and truly encompasses all that our community stands for.

Om is the vibrating sound of all things, just as all are welcome into this space, no judgment, come as you are.

Shanti translates to “peace” or “tranquility.” We believe that peace is the basis of a happy and fulfilling life and this is what we hope you find here.

Yoga translates “to yoke” or “unit.” As life loses all meaning when we are not connected with others, we are here to provide a space for a supportive and growing community.

How do you pronounce it?

Om = AUMM | Shanti = shaan tee

+ Do I need experience?

No experience is necessary. Yoga is for everybody! Yoga is a lifelong practice so just keep practicing!

+ Which class should I try first as a beginner?

Starting something new can be overwhelming at times so we want to make sure you start with a slower-moving class so you can become familiar with the movements and poses. All of our Level 1 classes are a fantastic place to start as well as our Reset and Restore classes. Our teachers are here to assist you as you begin this journey. You may speak with them before class to create a plan for your practice to best promote learning.

+ What if I have an injury or am Experiencing pain?

Yoga has been found to greatly benefit the mind and body during times of healing. Our teachers are here to support you in any way they can. You may speak to them before class to create the best plan for your practice to promote healing. We always recommend you speak with a medical professional before starting anything new.

+ Can pregnant women do yoga?

Absolutely! Yoga during pregnancy has been found to hold many benefits. We even offer a prenatal yoga class specially designed to support the body and mind during this transformative season. We do highly encourage you to have a conversation with your doctor before starting any kind of new activity during pregnancy.

+ Do you offer private classes?

Yes! We have several teachers who offer private sessions. Reach out to our studio manager, Jessica at info@omshantiyoga.org to learn more.

+ How Much Are Your Classes?

We have several pricing options. We have a single drop-in class for $20 or the option of purchasing a monthly membership for unlimited classes or a 10-class package. If you plan on attending more than 2 classes a week, we recommend an unlimited membership to get the best per-class cost. Currently, we are running a promotion for students who are new to the studio of a 2-week unlimited package for $30.

+ What Should I Bring To Class?

All you need is a yoga mat but a water bottle is always good too. We have plenty of yoga props you are welcome to use, though some of our students prefer to bring theirs from home. We also have a few community mats at the studio that you may use if you don't have your own.

+ What Are Your Hot Classes Like?

Heated classes are warmed between 75-95 degrees and open to anyone. These classes do move at a little slower pace so you don't overheat. Please hydrate well before class and bring water with you. You are always welcome to pause your practice or step outside if you feel light-headed or breathless.

Wear whatever you can comfortably move in.
