Not until we are lost do we begin to find ourselves

- David Thoreau

  • What Yoga or Barre 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 to Yoga or Barre?
    Yoga: 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. Aerial Yoga * please NO jewelry, zippers, or hooks that may snag the hammocks. Thank you. Barre: We encourage you to wear comfortable clothing that allows you to move and breathe. Barre classes are full of movement, cardio, & weights (optional) so you will increase your body temp and can easily break a sweat (flush those toxins!) Most classes are done barefoot.
  • What should I bring to yoga or Barre class?
    Yoga & Barre: Mostly just yourself and an openness to a new experience. It is recommended to bring your own mat, though we do offer mats to borrow if you need one. Shoes go in the cubbies on our 4th floor lobby and we have a coat closet for any personal belongings during class. Ideally, you will be fully present to your experience and can leave your phone with your belongings. We know how life happens, and so if you need to bring a phone into the stuido, please turn off the ringer. Yoga: During most classes, a water bottle is not necessary (after is a great time to hydrate!), but you are welcome to bring one. Barre: We enourage bringing water to class and drink as needed throughout the class!
  • What about eating before yoga or Barre?
    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. Barre: As Barre is very active we do not recommend practicing on a full stomach.
  • When should I arrive?
    Yoga & Barre: On your first visit, plan to arrive 15 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/props, 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 experience 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. Yoga classes can also include breathing practices and meditation. These demand a different type of flexibility and opennes, and just as with asana (the postures), they will take on a new dimension in your journey and feel easier with time.
  • 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 countraindicated for your condition. Therefore we ask that you inform your teacher before your practice to help us address and meet your unique needs. If we know that a posture is not recommended for your condition, we want to inform you and offer a safer alternative. Our experienced staff understands this need and are capable of addressing your concerns. Only you inhabit your body, and we encourage you to trust your intuition. In fact, you may find that yoga helps you grow trust in that too. As always, please consult with your doctor prior to joining a class to ensure it is appropriate for your current condition.
