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. 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: A Piece of the World by Christina Baker Kline
This novel was inspired by the magical realist painting by Andrew Wyeth
"Christina's World" (1948). The author imagines the life and times of the woman in this painting - Anna Christina Olson - adding flesh and bones to this iconic moment. The book is a mix of fiction and non-fiction, set in Cushing, Maine, that ponders the question of how we see ourselves and how are we seen through other people's eyes.
