  • Do I need to bring a mat?

    We strongly recommend bringing your own mat; however,we do have some available to borrow or purchase. Borrowed mats are shared; and although we know our students smell wonderful, we do clean our mats after every use.

  •  Do I need to reserve a spot for class? 

    We like to make your experience as stress-free as possible. You can pay online or when you get to the studio. Pre-registration is required for workshops and series classes, unless otherwise noted.

  • How early should I arrive to class? 

    While we know you are awesome and stay “in the zone”, we do recommend arriving at least 10 minutes prior to class. This allows ample time to sign in, grab a spot and relax. You can also take a bathroom break during this period, if you need to.

  • Do you offer “Hot” Yoga?

    Hot Yoga is practiced in at least 90+ degrees, we currently offer Warm Yoga where the class is 80-85 degrees. In January, when we move to 208 Westwood Shopping Center, we will have a room dedicated to Warm + Hot Yoga. Stay tuned! 

  • What if I can’t do a pose?

    While our inner yogi can do every bendy pose and inversion known to man, our outer yogi isn’t quite as successful. We, too, struggle with some poses! That is why it is called a yoga practice. With patience and practice, you can touch your toes one day or not fall out of headstand. If not, it’s ok! Remember to breathe deeply, modify where you need to, observe and be inspired, or take child’s pose.

  • I am not flexible, can I still do yoga?

    Guess what? We aren’t all flexible. You don’t need to be physically flexible to practice yoga. Yoga teaches you to develop flexibility AND strength in the mind and body. So don’t worry if your standing split looks more like a warrior three variation. Come as you are, respect your limitations and listen to the teachers’ modifications. Most importantly, breathe and smile! (And let YOUR inner yogi do that perfect standing split for now)

  • What should I wear?

    No special clothing is required to do yoga. Wear comfortable clothing that isn’t too baggy and doesn’t restrict movement. In general, a fitted stretchy top and bottom is recommended so your shirt (or pants) do not ride up towards your face during poses like downward facing dog. Yoga is done with bare feet, so please come with clean feet, and plan to remove your shoes and socks when you arrive. Cubbies are available in the yoga room to stash your belongings.

  • What class should I go to?

    Students typically start off in Slow Flow.  These classes are great for beginners, those recovering from injury or pregnant because they focus on breath and alignment in a relaxed manner. If you’re looking for a more intense class, we recommend any of the classes that are labeled “Flow”, "Warm", "Hot", or "Power". Please review the class descriptions to get a better idea of what to expect. We encourage you to try different teachers and classes since each of our instructors offer a unique style of teaching. Practicing this way also broadens your knowledge of yoga and mind body awareness. 

  • What is the minimum age for a student?

    We teach students as young as 13 years old. We leave it to the discretion of the parent. If you feel your child will be OK in a room with adults and not be a distraction to you and others then please bring them. Classes that we recommend are Slow Flow or Flow. 

  • I’m pregnant, what classes would be appropriate for me?

    First please make sure that your healthcare provider gives you the OK to exercise. Appropriate classes for pregnant are Slow Flow, Relax and Restore and Flow if you have practiced yoga before. Please tell your teacher you are pregnant :)

  • What style of yoga is taught at your studio?

    Most of our teachers come from a flow/vinyasa lineage. You can find out more about our teachers here to explore which teachers resonate with you. Best way to find out, take a class!
