about the classes

Outdoor yoga is (only a little different) from indoor yoga. With a few environmental things to consider, here are some frequently asked questions along with some advice for those newer to the practice of yoga asana (physical movements).

Remember not to take yourself too seriously and just be. You are trying something new, and that in itself is a win! If you have further questions, please feel free to call or email us. No question is a bad question!

How long are the classes?

These outdoor classes are 45 minutes. 9:00a – 9:45a. All classes will include mindfulness practices and movement. Don’t worry you aren’t holding a handstand the whole time 😉

Are there bathroom facilities on site?

Not really… Try to use the facilities at home or nearby in the ground floor of the Joseph Downes Sr. Parking Garage on the corner closest to Boarding House Park 

WHERE is this happening?

Outdoor Yoga with the City of Lowell is taking place at Boarding House Park in downtown Lowell, MA

Located at: 40 French St, Lowell, MA 01852

Here is a link on Google

Street parking is free on Sundays, and the adjacent Joseph Downes Garage is available with pay to park options.

WHEN is the class happening?

As listed above the classes will happen Sundays at 9:00am, and run for 45 minutes. We suggest getting to Boarding House park 10 minutes early so that if you are parking you can find a spot, our staff can check you in, and you can get settled.

Early arrival will also allow you to get connected with our team and the teacher if you have any concerns or would like to let us know more about you.

WHAT should I bring?

Please bring:

  • Your yoga mat as we will not have any mats available for rent or purchase on site. 
  • If you like to use the support of props (yoga blocks, yoga straps, yoga blanket etc) please bring your own. We will not have any available on site.
  • We recommend bringing a bottle of water so that you can stay hydrated! 
  • Sunscreen if you are sensitive, it seems this summer is forever.
  • An open mind. Give yourself a chance to be surprised by your own practice. Try not to have too many expectations, and remember: everyone who finds yoga is looking for yoga. We are all in this together.
  • What not to bring:
    • Valuables and excessive items. Please make sure your phone is turned to “off” or silent and stored away for class times, as not to distract yourself and others. Give yourself a break.
    • Expectations.
    • Illegal or dangerous items.
WHO is teaching this class?

We will have a rotating roster of teachers. If you are curious click on the class link above, or check out our team here! 

What/When should I eat?
  • Try not to eat a meal any closer than 2.5 hours before your practice time. If you are really hungry a light snack prior to practicing may be helpful, or consider a nourishing juice or water.
  • You may find yourself wanting to eat mindfully after class, so enjoy that time!
  • If your class time is later in the day, consider eating something light an hour or so before class and then something light after class.
What should I wear?
  • Yoga is a practice of physical movements that may make you sweat. Wear comfortable clothing you can easily move around in. Yoga involves a lot of bending and stretching, so clothes that fit snugly but without constraining your movements will probably be best; super baggy athletic gear can get in the way. After a few practices, you will get the sense of what clothing might support you in your practice best. It is different for everyone.
  • Shoes not worn in the studio, and are removed in our lobby. Socks should be removed on your mat.
  • Outdoor classes, perhaps consider sun and climate considerations.
What can I expect in my first yoga class?
  • Try not to have expectations; instead, try to have fun. You just might surprise yourself!
  • The yoga class is a combination of mind, body and spirit. Classes may integrate breathing exercises (Sanskrit: pranayama), meditation, strengthening + stretching movements, movements to increase balance and practices to increase mindful awareness.
  • Try going to an all-levels class with a slower pace or a fundamentals class to get familiar with the postures (Sansrkit: asana), which will then be sequenced and presented in various ways depending on the class style and teacher. Let your teacher know if this is your first class.
Is Yoga a religion, voodoo, witchcraft or magic?

No. Although yoga relates to many world religions in the sense that the practice values a connection to spirituality and soulfulness, there is no religious context to a physical yoga practice. You may see many icons within our space, as a reminder of their mindful qualities and awakened nature.

I have no idea what I am doing, can I still come to class?

Of course! Even yoga practitioners who have practiced for decades are surprised by what they don’t know; yoga practice is limitless, so if you’re doing it right, you’ll always feel curious and excited by the possibility of moving beyond your perceived limits. If you are new to the practice, it is recommended that you set up your mat space in the back of the class or middle so that you have other people to follow along with easily. Consider also joining an in-studio  Fundamentals Flow class or attending a Beginner’s Workshop.

Do I need to be flexible? I can't even touch my toes!

You do not have to be flexible to practice yoga. Students become flexible from practicing yoga. We aim to create a safe environment for practice that carefully opens the practitioner’s body so that over time, flexibility increases. Students who are naturally flexible will also find opportunity to develop strength in their muscles and mindful movement to complement flexibility.

What is the whole chanting thing about?

In many yoga classes, students are encouraged to follow along in a mantra or chant. Most often it is the sound of “OM”. You may join in or just listen.

OM (aum) is a Sanskrit word that you’ll frequently hear at the beginning and end of classes. The practice of mantra is a mind-training tool, intended to unite practitioner with a calm, clear sense of presence.

Are classes open to men or is it all women?

Dudes are welcome! We encourage people of any background, age*, gender, sexual orientation, skin color, size, shape, hair style, music preference or Hogwarts House to join us in yoga, meditation, dharma and more.

Please feel welcome, because you are.

*SUTRA adult classes. Please see FAQ about kids classes vs adult classes.

My _______ often hurts, can I still practice yoga?

Yoga is not a substitution for medical attention or therapies. You should seek approval from your doctor before committing to any exercise program.

SUTRA teachers and therapists will work hard to create a supportive environment for your growth through alignment modifications and modalities that we are familiar with, but the SUTRA team nor the practice of yoga is a substitution for medical attention or advice, or physical therapy.

Physical yoga practice should also be conducted in moderation with appropriate mindfulness in safety to have an enjoyable experience.

We also offer private lessons and special “supervised classes” to help meet your challenges.  Please contact us for more information.

Do you offer kids classes? What if I have my kids with me?

All SUTRA adult classes are age 18+.

Teens 16+ may attend SUTRA adult classes with a waiver and consent form signed by a guardian. Teens do not have to have a guardian present with them while participating in yoga, meditation, or workshops. SUTRA reserves the right to ask unruly teenagers to leave or even complete chores if they are disrespectful of the space, teachers, or other students. At this time we cannot accommodate students under 16 in regular classes.

Young Adults (ages 13-15), Kids Classes, Mommy + Me workshops and classes may be scheduled in the future and will be offered on our online schedule and updated through our newsletter when said classes are available.

Why Yoga?

Yoga in various forms has been practiced in many different traditions and styles over the last few thousand years. More recently within the last 100 years, we have come to practice the “asana” practice you may recognize from pop culture or modern representations of yoga. A few reasons how yoga could improve your life are listed below. But heck if you don’t believe us – google it.

  • To breathe better.
  • Increase flexibility, strength, balance, mental focus, and elevates mood.
  • De-stress and find calm.
  • Enhance the mind/body connection.
  • Get better sleep.
  • Feel better physically, emotionally, spiritually.
  • Encourage your personal creativity and productivity.
  • Encourage a healthy and mindful lifestyle.
  • Boost your confidence.
  • To find yourself.
  • Join a community of awesome people.
