Welcome to Niantic Yoga's Newcomer's Academy!

Whether you are new to yoga altogether, returning from a hiatus, recovering from an injury, surgery or illness, you are in the right place. 

The academy is a four-week long program that will teach you the basics of Svaroopa yoga – or blanket yoga as we like to call it.

This style of yoga is gentle, restorative, and supportive of all body types, abilities and mobility. A non-athletic class that will make you feel like you just had a massage. The bliss is life changing.

From seniors seeking continued mobility to performance athletes staying loose on rest days, we invite you to join us.

Classes begin on the first Thursday of each month, and run for four consecutive weeks.

We ask that you arrive no later than 5:15 to get your blanket stack set up and ready for class. 

Class consists of a 15-minute guided awareness (meditation), 30-minutes of asanas (poses), and concludes with another 15-minute guided awareness (meditation).

After class, there will be a 30-minute workshop and skills-building session that includes Q+A time with your instructor.

Classes are limited and require pre-payment and registration. There are no make-up classes.

The Academy is a series of four in-person classes held at our studio: 11 Liberty Way, #4, Niantic CT 06357
