FAQ for First Time Students
What class should I take?
We invite you to look over the desription of our classes to help you decide. But we also encourage you to try a range of classes, lifestyle workshops, and healing modalities. We know that your journey is a unique path for you. Therefore, the more you familiarize yourself with our offerings, the more empowered you will become in your life.
What should I wear?
You do not need any special clothes to practice yoga asana. Comfort is above all. We also suggest clothing that does not constrain your movement is both comfortable and safe. If you easily feel cold or hot, perhaps adding layers is a great option. For most classes, we invite you to go barefoot on the mat so that you can get good traction and feel grounded.
What should I bring?
Mostly just yourself and an openness to a new experience. It is recommended to bring your own mat and we also rent cleaned ones for $1 per class. Shoes go in the cubbies and we will lock your personal belongings in a side room during class.
What about eating before yoga?
It is recommended in yoga to have an empty stomach at least two hours before your practice. This is due to the way that the poses massage your intestinal area and therefore it is more comfortable to have an empty belly.
When should I arrive?
On your first visit, plan to arrive 15-20 minutes early to complete the necessary intake paperwork, meet your teacher and familiarize yourself with our studio. After your first visit, arriving 5-10 minutes in advance gives you time to sign in, set up your mat, greet your community members/friends, and settle into a mindful space for the practice.
Do I have to be flexible to practice yoga asana?
A yoga asana practice is designed to help every body build strength, balance, and flexibility starting right where you are. You are your own most important teacher! You alone expeirnce what is going on inside and it is highly encouraged to listen to your obdy.
Our experienced teachers give options for poses because they understand that every body is different and functions in a slightly different way. We invite you to work with the expression of a posture that serves you the best.
I have an injury or medical condition. Is it safe for me to practice yoga?
Yoga is often used to support healing form injuries, reduce chronic pain and systems caused by stress. It is also beneficial for strengthening new tasks like childbirth. But some postures may be counter-indicated or your condition. Therefore we ask that you fill out a form before your practice to help us address and meet your unique needs.
