Frequently Asked Questions

Is Doris Yoga different from other styles of yoga?

Yes. Doris Yoga is body awareness and control. This means you will be actively engaging muscles you may not be accustomed to engaging in other yoga classes. You’ll be creating balance in your body as well as conditioning and strengthening new and core muscle groups. The result is you can live pain-free. With sustained practice, you’ll have improved balance, better range of motion, and more energy. Most students find after just 1-2 months of practice on a weekly basis, of having better core strength, balance, and mobility.

How often should I practice yoga?

Yoga is meant to be a daily practice. As a beginner, Doris recommends to set a goal you can realistically keep. However, being consistent is key to your practice. The more you practice, the better you will feel, and the more you will want to practice!
