After your question, introduce yourself then walk off.
You: Is there a Yoga class here?
Her: I think there’s a listing on the board in the back.
You: Cool thanks. By the way, I’m Eric.
Her: I’m Tara. Nice to meet you.
You: Have fun on the rowing machine!
Next time you see her, you can say hi to her and continue the conversation.
The beauty of this is that you seem non-needy by walking off and you can build up rapport gradually.
