Do I need to check in before class, make a reservation for class, or can I just show up?

Yes, you always need to check in for class. You can make a reservation online for classes or just show up and sign in. While it’s not absolutely necessary, we highly encourage you to make a reservation before you come to class — as many of our classes sell out.

How should I prepare for my yoga class?

  • Please turn off all cell phones and place them in cubbies along with personal belongings in designated area.

  • Arrive 5-10 minutes before class start time. All of our classes begin at the start time with centering breath/meditation/mindfulness moments. It is important you and your mat and props can be down prior to the teacher beginning the class. Late students may not be allowed into class.

  • Place shoes in cubbies.

  • For hygienic reasons, provide your own Yoga mat & large towel to every class (yoga mats are available for purchase)

  • Always inform teacher of any health concerns.

  • No gum, candy or food in the studio.

  • Avoid wearing perfumes or cologne to class.

  • If you need to leave class early please practice near the exit and leave quietly.

  • Come to class with an empty stomach (avoid eating 2 hours prior to class).

  • Please drink plenty of water before and after class, especially a heated class.

  • Speak up: If you feel uncomfortable please let us know so that we may assist you better.

How should I prepare for a Hot Yoga class?

  • For hygienic reasons, provide your own Yoga mat & large towel to every class (yoga mats are available for purchase)

  • Do not eat 2 to 3 hours before class. If you must eat something, a banana or apple is a good option.

  • Hydrate before and after class with at least 16-32 ounces of water.

  • Dress appropriately for your tolerance to heat. The temperature in the room will eventually reach upwards of 95 degrees.

  • Honor your body. If you are not feeling well, do not take the class. Also take into consideration any cold or flu medications you may be taking antihistamines in particular dry out your system and you may be uncomfortable in a heated class.

I’ve never done Yoga before, what should I wear? Do I need a mat? Can I rent or purchase one at the studio?

Wear comfortable clothes that you can easily move and stretch in. Bring a mat.  If you do not have a mat, we have yoga mats and towels that can be purchased from the studio.

Should I eat before practicing yoga? About how long should I wait to eat after practicing yoga?

To start off, don’t eat two hours before practicing yoga. If you are starving and want to get your yoga on but need a little bit of sustenance, eat something light such as a banana or drink some juice to sustain you through the practice. After practicing, wait about 30 minutes for your body to re-acclimate and then grab a bite to eat. Drink plenty of water…you need water because of how much you just sweat and perhaps electrolytes.

How much water should I drink?

Always come to class well-hydrated. Follow the guidelines below to prepare for class:

  • Consume 8–10 glasses of water (8 oz. per glass) daily for normal activity, not including exercise.

  • At least 2 hours prior to exercise, drink 16 oz. of water or fluid without caffeine.

  • During exercise, drink frequently, preventing thirst. Your goal is to replenish fluids at the same rate you are sweating.

Do I have to be flexible?

No. You do not have to be flexible to do yoga. Ever heard of an urban myth? This is a perfect example of one. Flexibility is only one of the many aspects of it. Once you practice yoga for a period of time, you will improve flexibility with numerous of other benefits. Yoga is not just about stretching your muscles. Yoga tones and elongates the muscles. If you allow it to be, yoga can be calming, meditative, spiritual, and healing …if you allow it! So, stop with the excuses and come get your yoga on.

What if I just can’t do a pose?

No problem! Everyone has a first class and has to start somewhere! The teacher will offer different variations of the poses so that everyone can benefit and each time you come to class you will learn a little bit more. Remember there is no such thing as not being “good” at yoga.
