frequently asked questions

Which class is right for me?

Yoga is accessible for almost everyone. We're happy to help you find a class that is appropriate for you. No prior experience is required. Even though each instructor has a unique style, we've included descriptions for each type of class so that you can select a style that is most suitable.

What level is right for me?

If you are experiencing yoga for the first time, we recommend attending a Level 1 class or one of our Gentle Flow classes. If your schedule doesn't accommodate one of the Level 1 times, you may attend one of the Level 2 classes. These classes move at a slightly faster pace and assume some knowledge of yoga, although the instructors will provide basic instruction for all the poses.

Do I need to register in advance?

You’re not required to register in advance for classes, but you may if you want to save time at the front desk.  However, we do recommend you register in advance for workshops and events. If you choose not to register for class in advance, arrive 10-15 minutes before class begins.

Can I register online for classes and events?

Yes!  Even though we don’t require you to register for classes in advance, you may decide to sign up and pay online to save time on arrival.  We do recommend that you register in advance for events and workshops.

Do I need my own mat?

We have studio mats available for use. We provide mats, blankets, blocks, straps and bolsters in the studio. You're welcome to use any of the props provided. However, we highly recommend that you purchase your own mat after attending the first few classes.

What should I wear?

Please wear comfortable, non-restrictive clothing. It's best to avoid clothing that is overly baggy as it will be distracting to you and will not provide visibility for the instructors to check alignment. Yoga is practiced in bare feet - so there are no shoe requirements.

How early should I arrive?

Please arrive 10-15 minutes early for class. Allow time to register, sign in for class and get settled in the room.

Is yoga just stretching?

No, yoga if far more than just stretching out your muscles. As a whole, yoga is a process of stilling the mind while gaining the benefit of making the body supple and strong.

Can I do yoga even if I am not flexible?

Yes. Flexibility is a benefit, not a requirement.
