"You can learn new things at any time in your life if you're willing to be a beginner. If you actually learn to like being a beginner, the whole world opens up to you."- Barbara Sher

Are you a New Student? 

Whether you have abundant yoga experience or are new to the practice we welcome you to Heartwood. If you are new to yoga, you can safely participate in any class we offer, so no worries. Just pick a class and come in. The Heartwood staff is qualified to provide a positive first yoga experience to all levels, ages, and degrees of experience. If you have not been involved in fitness is some time, any gentle or basic yoga or meditation class will provide you with a good foundation to begin.  We also offer Restorative yoga, Yoga on the Labyrinth and other moderate classes that would help get you started in a comfortable way. You can check our schedule out online on the website, or download the convenient Heartwood Retreat Center app on your phone for up to date schedules and information. Of course we have many other classes to try as well, including aerial yoga, all levels flow, Yoga on the wheel and more once you have a basic understanding of the goals of yoga. When you arrive for your first class, a teacher will be happy to talk with you to help direct you to the classes that will best serve your interest and needs. 


You do not need to preregister for classes. You can always drop in and pay for a single class for $18.00, but if you are new to yoga (or just new to Heartwood Yoga Institute) you may wish to start by purchasing the one time only new student special. This  low introductory special is $29.00 for 5 classes to get you started. This provides you an opportunity to try out the school and experience the fine teachers, ambiance and general "vibe" to determine if we are a good fit for you. 


New Student Special - 29.00 for 5 classes - only available for first time students.


Groupon Special:  $29.50 for a 5 class pass.


New students can use one or the other, but you cannot use a Groupon and then purchase the New Students special as both offers are only for first time visitors.  


Note: The Groupon special is only available once for students new to Heartwood, after which you must purchase class packages or sign up for a membership. If you have a Groupon, you do not need to preregister for a class. Just please bring it with you to your first class and we will set up your account on your first visit. From then on, your classes will be in an online account so you can sign up online before arrival or when you get here. Class passes can be used for any of our yoga or meditation classes.  All groupon packages have a three month expiration from the first class taken. No exceptions. The new student special has a one year expiration for the 5 classes. Class packages purchased at the regular price also have a one year expiration date. 


After your introductory package, you can pay per class, buy a package of classes to use at your leisure, or you may sign up for the monthly unlimited membership. Our fees and discounts are outlined on the fees page and you can learn more about our different classes on the class description page.
