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 Livestream online classes, which do not generally show demonstrations of the poses. However, the camera will be pointed at the students in the studio, so you can look at them for guidance in your 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, Redmond or Livestream schedules.

  • 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?

  • Bring what you need for class: yoga mat and a towel (recommended for heated classes). If you don't have a mat or towel, you you can rent them from us. We also have props: yoga blocks, yoga straps, bolster and blankets for Healing Flow and Evoke Yin classes. 

  • 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?

  • Oregon Guidelines out June 30 allow businesses to welcome all people to practice in our classes without masks and distancing from each other! 

  • Our teachers do not generally practice with the class. Instead they will be walking around the classroom giving hands on assists and 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.
