Get on the Mat

Get on the Mat

Whether you’re a beginner, intermediate or advanced yogi, The Boise State Recreation Center has a class for you. Our yoga classes are drop-in, so you can start anytime. You can even arrive late if you can’t make it by the start of class. They are perfect for a student like you to plug into.

We’ve broken down the types of classes we offer so you can find one – or more – that’s right for you.

Wake Up Yoga:

Monday and Wednesday, 6:10 a.m.

Before classes and your hectic day begins, the early mornings are a great time to do yoga. Wake up early, set an intention for your time on the mat, and enjoy the benefits the rest of the day. Wake Up Yoga is a gentle, early morning practice starting on the floor. You’ll wake up each body part to start your day in a great place.

  • Monday, 7:30 p.m.
  • Tuesday, 3:30 p.m.
  • Wednesday, 5:30 p.m.
  • Saturday, 10 a.m.

Yoga is a flow class, meaning it’s about moving through sequences with purpose and intention. This class is not about hitting the pose. It’s about the journey of getting to the pose. This style of yoga is often referred to as “vinyasa flow”. According to Yoga Journal, vinyasa means “arranging something in a special way.” Image from Pixabay
Restorative Yoga:

Friday, noon

If you want a gentle, relaxing class, Restorative Yoga is for you. The 50-minute class moves through six to eight poses slowly, often finding stillness. Each pose and movement is done with purpose. The class also focuses on breath work and being mindful in the practice. It’s a great class to relieve stress.
Yoga Flow:

Tuesday, 6:30 p.m.

Yoga Flow is higher impact and faster than most yoga classes. It’s choreographed to music, mixing yoga with dance. Yoga Flow is great for dancers, athletes and beginners alike.

What to wear:

Pants and a shirt that are not baggy. It’s important for you and the instructor to see how your body moves. Find more details on The Rec’s attire policy here.
