Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of yoga do you offer?
Our teaching is mostly based in the Amrit and Kundalini Yoga traditions. Our classes tend to be somewhat meditative - even the more physically rigorous ones.  The ideal is to be fully present, centered, and aware of body, breath, and maybe even energy, while practicing.  We focus on getting to know your essential Self better. We aren't, in other words, a fitness center, if that's what you're looking for. Please take a look under "classes" for more specific information about our various offerings.


I've never taken a yoga class before. Would Santosha be a good fit for me?

Absolutely! All of our teachers make sure students - especially new students - understand what's going on in class, and why. They will help you to become situated and comfortable, for example finding modifications for you if needed. Our regular students and members will also welcome you and guide you to what you need in terms of props, where to sit, etc. 

Is yoga hard to do?

Yoga can be both mentally and physically challenging, but if it's for you, you will naturally relax into the challenges - even if you start with some anxiety. It might ease your mind to know that nearly everyone leaves class feeling much better than when they came in, whether it's their first or their hundredth class.


What do I wear to class?
Wear loose fitting, comfortable clothing: anything that you can move in and that feels comfortable to you. There are no wardrobe requirements, other than actually wearing clothing.

Do I need to bring a mat?

Some people prefer to have their own mat, but you can always borrow one from us. 

Do you do “hot” yoga?
No…unless of course it's 90+ degrees outside, and the air conditioner is broken!


Do you accept credit cards?
We accept cash, MasterCard, Visa, American Express and personal checks.


Can I drop in for a class anytime?
Drop-ins are always welcome to any class, unless otherwise noted. Pre-registration is recommended and appreciated for workshops and special events. (Descriptions of special events, workshops, and class series will include links for registering.) As a side note, we always recommend new students take advantage of our "30 days for $30" intro offer. This package is activated immediately, so try not to purchase it until you're at your first class.  (Try to come in a little early to fill out a new student waiver.)


What do I do if I have an injury?
First, make sure that your doctor approves your participation in yoga. Next, explain your injury to your teacher at the start of class. If a pose is not working for you, ask for help. All of our teachers are trained to help through adjusting and modifying the poses to suit your needs. And most important, take care of yourself. If something doesn't feel right, honor the message from your body.


I feel weird chanting. Do I have to?
Heavens, no! At the same time, the vibrational effect of chanting can help open up blockages in surprising ways, so we lovingly encourage you to try it at least once.



Santosha uses MindBody software for all appointments and registrations. You'll be able to sign up for classes in advance, register for any of our exciting workshops, or book an appointment with one of our holistic practitioners. You can find the Mindbody app HERE.

Nothing to report today!

Here's how to practice with us during the pandemic.

We are now offering classes exclusively on Zoom. Santosha members, class pass holders, and intro package holders: please go to for information about how to be invited to our Santosha Community Private Group, where you will find Zoom links for Santosha's regularly scheduled classes. Non-members and those with no class package may still drop in for a class by following the MindBody link (above), but you need to register at least one hour before the start of class. You will then receive an email with the Zoom link, so make sure we have an accurate email address for you. AND, check your spam folder!  Think you should have Facebook private page access and don't? -- send a PM to Susan Friendson on Facebook or email us at with your contact info. If you have already asked to join this group, but haven't been invited in yet, please check for a private message we will have sent you through Facebook. We appreciate your patronage and hope to see you in the virtual world!
