All the daily open sessions can be attended by beginners interested in developing a deep, committed yoga practice. We ask that beginners interested in “just giving yoga a try” attend the Anam Cara studio night classes. That’s different than beginners who feel a strong calling to practice. Put another way, beginners who have a sense that they already love yoga are welcome to attend WYC open sessions. For info on PAYMENTS.
