EPIC Yoga SC has created introductory level classes for our new and aspiring yogis.
If you have never taken a yoga class before, our introductory classes are both accessible and encouraging. We have created a safe environment in which all levels and abilities can practice.
Our introductory classes provide a slower paced program with more description and commentary accompanying each asana or posture.
