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.
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.
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.
Hot Yoga is practiced in at least 90+ degrees and with a set sequence of static yoga poses. So, technically we do not offer it. Check out these local studios that may offer it –Get Twisted, Hayat Yoga & World Dance, Breathing Space, and Living Balance Studios. We offer a warm flow class that is heated up to 80 degrees and moves quickly from one pose to the next so you are guaranteed to sweat. Power Flow is also a good class for strength and conditioning.
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.
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)
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.
Students typically start off in Absolute Beginning or Beginning 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”. Please review the class descriptions to get a better idea of what to expect. We encourage you to try different instructors 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.
We see students as young as 13 years old. We leave it at the discretion of the parent. If you feel your child will be OK in a room with adults and not be of a distraction to you and others then please bring them. Classes that we recommend are Absolute Beginning or Beginning Flow.
First please make sure that your healthcare provider gives you the OK to exercise. Appropriate classes for pregnant are Prenatal Yoga or Absolute Beginning Yoga. Please tell your teacher you are pregnant
