Frequently asked questions

Do I need previous yoga experience to take this online course?

No. This course is designed specifically for people with little to no yoga experience or seasoned yogi who want a refresh on their fundamentals. The Yoga Foundations online course is suitable for all ages, backgrounds and levels of fitness too.

How long will it take me to complete this course?

It's up to you. As soon as you purchase Yoga Foundations, you'll have instant and lifetime access to all 9 lessons, so you can follow each one at your own speed. You're even welcome to repeat the course as many times as you want! We recommend completing 2 classes per week (e.g. Tuesdays and Thursdays), which will help you complete the course one month — and more importantly — build a consistent practice. Once you complete Yoga Foundations, you can then continue growing your practice by attending The Yoga Shala's beginner online classes and more!

What can I gain from a yoga practice?

The benefits of a consistent yoga practice are broad. The physical postures of yoga help to strengthen, stabilize and mobilize the body, as well as improve flexibility and energy levels. Yoga also helps to release tension, manage stress and calm emotional turbulence. Finally, yoga provides tools for gaining a deeper understanding of ourselves and how to navigate our daily lives better.

What kind of gear do I need to take this online course?

All you need is a yoga mat! However, if possible, having 1 or 2 yoga blocks can help support your practice. Having a pillow or blanket around can make some poses more comfortable. Wear comfortable clothes that allow free movement and we recommend having water to drink during the class as well.
