Welcome to the Namaspa Community!

This page will help you to choose your first class, come prepared, and to know what to expect.

1. Which class to take?

  • All of our classes are suited for all levels of experience, so if you are a beginner you will be guided by the teacher on how to create the shape of the pose, how to modify as needed, and if you are more experienced you will receive suggestions about how to enhance your experience. 

  • While no experience is necessary for our Power Flow classes, it may be helpful for you to review the sequence and common modifications in these Beginner videos: 30 minute practice and 60 minute practice, especially if you will be joining our Zoom Online classes, which do not generally show demonstrations of the poses.

2. How to sign up?

  • We recommend you download our Namaspa App, found in the iOS or Android App Stores. Create a username and password and easily register for class on the Bend or Redmond schedules (note these two locations for in-studio classes; online classes are listed on the Bend page).

  • If you have an existing pass and don't see it in your account, you may have set up a duplicate account. Please email namaspayoga@gmail.com and we can merge your accounts and get you going. Please also email us with any other questions you have, or if you don't see your link for the online classes.

3. What to bring?

  • Due to COVID-19, our In-Studio processes have changed. We request that you ONLY bring what you need for class: yoga mat, towel (recommended for heated classes) and optional props: yoga block, yoga strap, bolster and blanket for Healing Flow and Evoke Yin classes. We do not have rentals or other props to provide at the studio at this time.

  • Wear comfortable clothes you can move and stretch in. The Power Flow and Vin/Yin classes are heated to 90 degrees, so tank tops and shorts are recommended, and bring layers if it is cooler outside. You will leave your shoes outside the room - we practice in bare feet - or socks for Yin.

4. What to expect?

  • Due to COVID-19 precautions, you will be asked to enter wearing a mask and sign a waiver stating that you do not have COVID-19 or any symptoms, have not been in close contact with those who have, and that you have been in Central Oregon for the past 2 weeks. We will also take your temperature to ensure it is not above 100 degrees.

  • Once inside the studio, you will have your own space, taped 6' from all other spaces where you can relax, drop your day, and experience the guided practice.

  • Due to Oregon state regulations, all class participants must where a mask or shield the entire time they are in the building including during practice. We have face shields for sale for $5. They are very easy to practice in and we encourage you to try them especially if you deal with respiratory issues like asthma. 

 

  • While our teachers are not walking around giving hands on assists, they will be speaking directly to you to give you directions to create healthy alignment, movement and expression. So, have fun, be yourself, and don't hesitate to ask questions. 

  • We begin and end each class with 3 Oms, which helps to raise the vibration of the class, to warm up the body, and to unite the class in sound and breath. 

  • Most importantly, please know this practice is not a competition. Let go of your concern of not knowing and trust your inner wisdom. The aim is to leaving you feeling light, whole and complete, and connected with the others in your class.
