GETTING STARTED

Due to COVID-19 adjustments, we currently require pre-registration for all our classes — both online and hybrid in-person.

We are currently offering both hybrid (with online and in-person options for the same class) and purely online classes to support our community of mindful movers.

To take classes online: create an account and register online to get the class link! See our “Step-by-Step Online Setup” instructions for more details!

To take hybrid in-person classes create an account and pre-register online to save your class spot and read our “COVID Safety Protocols” document before heading to the studio!

Here are some basics for getting started at Lotus!
New to Yoga?
  • We are a very welcoming and inclusive yoga studio.
  • We are excited to introduce you to the many benefits of yoga!
  • If you are brand new to yoga, the following ongoing classes are a great way to begin:
    • Gentle & Restorative: These classes are gentle options; they are appropriate for new students as well as experienced students seeking a gentle practice.
    • All Levels: “All levels” classes are taught in stages so that students may find their appropriate level and work within it.
What style of yoga do we teach?
  • All Lotus Yoga classes include mindful, intelligent teaching and sequencing of yoga postures (asana) and yoga breathwork (pranayama). Classes generally also include accessible yoga mindfulness meditation (dhyana) and yoga mind-focusing techniques (dharana) as well as some traditional yoga philosophy.
  • Our teachers are highly trained, and offer teachings from a blend of yoga traditions.
  • We think of our offerings as a mindful and sustainable style of exercise, breathwork and mindful meditation practice that fosters a healthy and strong body, mind and spirit, over the course of time, for most humans.
  • Our teaching is rooted in “traditional” non-religious yoga practice although some students and teachers do consider the practice to be spiritual for themselves, we teach from a respectful, non-religious perspective.
What kinds of classes do we offer?

We offer many class options that are appropriate for beginners through seasoned practitioners:

  • Many of our classes are open to “all levels” of yoga experience and offer stronger and gentler variations within a single class.
  • Some classes offer a specialized focus such as: “yoga + sound bath”, “gentle yoga”, “strong practice”, “restoratives and meditation”, “yoga and live music” and “sustainable practice”.
  • Please see our class schedule for class descriptions and for specific class foci.

  • For teacher biographies, please see our teachers page.
What should I wear?
  • Breathable, comfortable clothing that can stretch is the best clothing for practicing yoga.
  • Layers are helpful in regulating body temperature throughout class.

Land Acknowledgment: Lotus Yoga acknowledges that we are on the unceded ancestral lands of the Duwamish people (dxʷdəwʔabš). A people that are still here, continuing to honor and bring to light their ancient heritage. We honor with gratitude the land itself and the original caretakers of this land, past and present. This acknowledgement does not take the place of authentic relationships with indigenous communities, but serves as a first step in honoring the land we are on.
