Practical Information

Yoga may be performed in groups or individually. Yoga techniques may be learned in classes, which are about 60 minutes in length. Group classes cost between $15 and $30, and private sessions are $25 to $35 per hour. Benefiting from yoga requires an ongoing commitment; several hours per week over weeks to months generally are required.

Yoga classes often are available through recreation centers, the YMCA, and schools. A listing of yoga teachers is available each year in the July/August issue of the Yoga Journal (2020 Milvia Street, Berkeley CA 94704 [510-486-2858]).
