Your Questions || Our Answers.
What if I'm not flexible?
Then you gotta start! This is one of the best reasons to get started with a yoga practice. Everyone has tightness in their body or mind where they can create more flexibility.
I have never done yoga before, will I be able to take the class?
All levels are welcome to attend any of our classes. We suggest having a look at the class description and finding a class that suits your needs. For stronger classes like hot flow, rocket or vinyasa: teachers' intensity are shown on the schedule with a *gentle to beginner / **beginner to intermediate / ***intermediate to advanced
New to yoga tips:
If it's your first time in a yoga class, we think your first 3 classes are a bit of a write off. Give the practice a good 3-4 classes before forming an opinion on whether it's right for you or not. There are so many styles of yoga and teachers with very different personalities, it's in your best interest to try more than 2 classes out.
I already have a work out routine. How does yoga help me?
Although many forms of exercise provide a wonderful physical workout, yoga can be a therapeutic system that helps heal injuries, improve chronic illness, and balance mental stress.
Do I need to book in advance?
Not completely necessary, especially if you're feeling wild and want to spontaneously drop in. If it's your first class, it'll be better if you register online & book your class so you can skip all the awkward filling of paperwork.
How early do I need to come?
The earlier the better! Well, maybe not always. But please get your physical being with at least 15 minutes before class to find parking, sign in and familiarize yourself with our facilities. Once the teacher steps into class - we are amazingly strict about time so you won't be able to saunter in late (not even a minute) & classes are subject to room capacity... we don't have unlimited space unfortunately, haven't quite figured out the time space continuum yet.
How much does it cost?
The more you come, the less it costs! Check out our memberships page for all the juicy details.
Is it okay to eat before I come?
It's okay to eat, you know your body best. Having said that, it's not advisable to eat a huge meal right before class. If you need some energy and haven't eaten all day, try for lighter fare. If you're eating a beast of a meal, give yourself 2-3 hours to digest, especially before attending a hot flow class. The heat makes for unpleasant full belly grumbles.
What do I need for yoga?
If you have it: a yoga mat, water bottle, and towel if you're coming to hot yoga. If you don't have a mat or towel, we have rentals for you at the studio.
What should I wear?
Wear comfortable clothes that do not restrict your movement or your freedom to breathe.
How many times should I practice?
To really get the most out of your yoga practice, we recommend coming 2-3 times per week, of course, more if you can, but if you're just starting 2-3 times would help you start to see the benefits begin to take effect over the course of a few months.
Can I practice if I'm dealing with an injury?
Maybe. It all depends on what the injury is and how much or how little you can work with it. You can call, text or email us and check in to see. If you're coming, always let your teacher know what's up. This way they can offer modifications to alleviate any stressors or pain.
I am feeling under the weather, should I still come to yoga?
Feeling sick is our body’s way of telling us that something is wrong and that we may need to slow down. A regular Yoga practice strengthens the immune system and helps to fend off colds and flu, but once you are already sick it is important to rest, drink plenty of fluids and only practice very gentle yoga poses at home.
Where do I keep my belongings?
We have change rooms for your gym bag and small lockers for the important stuff. Please remember that while we do our best to maintain the space, we can't always control what people do, so make sure you keep your stuff safe.
What if I'm pregnant, can I still come to yoga?
Most definitely! There are so many awesome benefits to practising when you're pregnant. We have prenatal specific yoga classes available, you can also attend any non-heated yoga classes. We do advise against practising in the heat.
