Do I need to sign up in advance or just show up?
Short answer: When in doubt, just show up!
You can create your account online through the schedule page or you can simply show up 15 minutes early to your desired class and register at the studio.
We do not require booking classes in advance. All you need to do is show up and sign in when you arrive.
What do I need to bring/what should I know?
- A yoga mat
- A bottle of water (it is important to stay hydrated before, during and after classes)
- A hand towel
- A mat towel/beach towel (if you are taking a hotter class)
- Wear comfortable pants and a tank or shirt that fits snugly
- Remove your shoes as soon as you enter. There are cubbies near the entrances.
Your class will start promptly; with or without you. Please arrive at least 15 minutes early.
I've never done yoga and feel clueless, intimidated and scared... help!
WE GET YOU! Seriously. We've all been there. Please, please, please, just come. We are super friendly! We will be sure to break everything down and answer all of your questions. Here are some things you should know for your first visit though.
- Arrive at least 15 min before class starts so you can settle in
- Don't eat 2 hours before class
- You are an expert on your own body. Always listen when your intuition tells you something is not right, even if the instructor says otherwise.
What kind of yoga do you practice?
Unless it is otherwise specified, the classes offered will be Vinyasa flows and Power Yoga. Vinyasa yoga is characterized by continuous movements, particularly including vinyasas (a series of four poses) to connect other sections of movement in the class. Sun Salutations are a common component of Vinyasa Yoga, especially for the warm up. Power Yoga is charactarized by long holds aimed at building strength, mentally and physically.
What if I am not very flexible?
DEFINITELY COME! In yoga we work on improving flexibility (passive stretching) and mobility (active stretching). Improving your mobility is one of the fastest ways to improve your physical quality of life because it will allow you to do daily functional tasks more easily.
What if I have an injury?
It is critical that you take responsibility for your own well being not only in yoga classes, but in life. Regardless of what a teacher suggests for a pose or sequence, always remember that you are the best expert on your own body. If it does not feel right, do NOT do it. You are encouraged to communicate with your teachers to request suggestions for modifications. However, our teachers are not medical professionals and will not provide medical advice in any capacity.
