Welcome, new students!

Congratulations on investing in your own wellness and joining the Twist Tribe! We know it can be a little intimidating turning up to your first class, but our supportive team will be with you every step of the way in this exciting journey. Here’s everything you need to know to get started.

Which class is right for me?

With many  different yoga and fitness  classes offered at Twist Yoga, there’s something for every preference and experience level. You won’t need to have several different gym memberships anymore to reach your fitness goals! You can read about our different types of classes here. If you’re brand new to yoga, our Intro to Yoga Foundations class is a great place to start. But if you’re still not sure which type is right for you, don’t fear! Our Membership Ambassador Sonia will be in touch to talk you through everything and help you choose. You can also check out this article with our recommendations for new students.

What should I wear and bring to my first class?

Don’t worry, you don’t need any fancy yoga clothes or gear to attend Twist Yoga! Simply wear what you’re comfortable in. You can bring a yoga mat and towel along if you have one — otherwise, you can rent them at the studio for $2 each.

Will I understand the ‘yoga words’ and the reasons behind the shapes?

Our workshop series, School of OM, is perfect for new students. It’s the BEST way to learn the foundations of yoga and set your own practice up for continued success.

You can check out our FAQ page here, or schedule a call with our Yoga Advisor, Sonia. She's specifically trained to help you choose classes that are a perfect match for your goals.

I always thought yoga was some fluffy thing where people sat around and chanted. I like a more challenging workout and have a very athletic background. I also thought I was in really good shape before I took a yoga class at Twist! Boy, was I wrong. The classes challenged my body in new and amazing ways, my mind in staying still and focused, and overall just really took my overall fitness up to the next level. And, as a side benefit, you should see my golf game since I started yoga at Twist!
