pricing

any student who has never been to ritual house of yoga can sign up for our intro offer of 30 days (consecutive) unlimited yoga for $40!


what to wear

Wear comfortable, breathable clothing that does not limit your range of motion. An outfit that you would wear on a jog on a Seattle summer day will work well. we do not wear shoes in the yoga room, and do not recommend socks.


what to bring

Bring your yoga mat, and come well hydrated. We have yoga mats to rent for $2

for purchase if you do not have one of your own. we do not sell bottled water, but have filtered water if you bring a bottle!


when to arrive

Arrive at least 15 minutes early for your first visit.

This will allow enough time for registration and a brief orientation or questions

before class.

come to class well hydrated

It is always a best practice to arrive well hydrated for your yoga class. You will feel better throughout class and will recover faster after those particularly challenging days :)


my body is stiff! i am 'out of shape'! can i still come to class?

Although it might at first sight appear that someone who is very flexible can

perform yoga postures better than a stiff person, this is a misconception. Yoga aims to develop one’s alignment and awareness through breathing and subtle adjustments made to the body – the skin, muscles, tendons and joints etc – and mind while in each yoga posture. The aim is to create vitality and stability, and to practice strength and flexibility within in each posture, not to perform a routine or choreography.

Therefore, doing the poses ‘perfectly’ is not emphasized in our classes. learning to fully embody your own practice & staying curious as to what this practice has to offer each new day, is. our teachers guide toward Quality of movement (integration & sustainability) over quantity of movement.

That being said, gaining flexibility, strength, & stability does make achieving postures more easeful. everyone starts somewhere; come in and try it out!

what classes are right for me if i’m new?
if you are brand new to yoga
we suggest starting with a hatha, forrest hatha, restorative, or myofascial release class. let your teacher know you are new to yoga when you arrive, that way they can best support your experience, and give you tips + feedback if you want it.
coming back to yoga after a break
we suggest starting with a hatha or forrest class and seeing how you feel. go from there! vinyasa classes will keep a faster pace between the different poses than our hatha or forrest yoga classes. restorative and myofascial release classes are slower in nature, but can also result in deep work.
you want a more customized/personal learning experience
we suggest a private yoga session with one of our teachers. we can help point you in the right direction based on your needs. email us!
