Welcome New Students!
Sometimes the hardest part of trying something new is taking that first step to get started. Here are some guidelines for using the studio and getting started at Searchlight.
First visit? Your first class is free! Read our teacher bios and class descriptions to figure out which class you want to go to- if you're a beginner, consider a Foundations or Gentle class. You can then create a client profile and reserve your spot. If you are not tech savvy, just come on in- our helpful front desk staff is on hand to help you get set up, just make sure you show up 15 minutes early for your scheduled class.
No mat? No problem. Students are welcome to borrow a mat for free at their first visit. Mat rentals after the first visit are $2 per class for our high end Manduka Studio Gear yoga mats. We just ask that you use our mat spray to wipe it down after, and return to front desk. We have everything you need to practice, right down to clean, filtered water to keep you hydrated.
Wear comfortable clothes that you can move freely in, and try not to eat right before class.
Once you take that step and explore your first class, try more classes. You'll find a teacher that you connect with- there are so many different styles of yoga, so many different approaches. Find a good fit with someone who presents things in a way that feels accessible to you, that 'speaks' to you and that feels good. Your best bet is to find a balance between comfort and challenge.
Come frequently! A consistent practice is better than 'knocking it out' once a week. We have set our pricing options to optimally support your practice, and we have over 30 classes a week! If you can't make it to a class, hang out in a yoga pose or two at home. Breathe. Do an activity in a mindful way. Every day, or as often as you can!
Book Club: Black Elk Speaks
Black Elk was born in Wyoming in 1863 and died on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota in 1950. He was a cousin to the war chief Crazy Horse. He fought at the Battle of Wounded Knee in 1890. The great photograph in the flyer comes from his time touring with Buffalo Bill's Wild West show (1887). This is his story as told to the poet and ethnologist John Neihardt. The book was first published in 1932 and recounts Black Elk's religious vision which came to him at age nine during an extended illness, and details Black Elk's life as a medicine man of the Lakota Tribe.
"Everything the power of the world does is done in a circle...the wind, in its greatest power, whirls. Birds make their nests in circles, for theirs is the same religion as ours. The sun comes forth and goes down again in a circle. The moon does the same, and both are round...even the seasons form a great circle in their changing, and always come back again to where they were. The life of a man is a circle from childhood to childhood and so it is in everything where power moves."
Our next meeting is February 8, 7:30 (Thursday) Location TBA Contact us for more info on joining Book Club
