Who can practice yoga?
Almost everyone can practice yoga. You don’t need to have strength, flexibility, or experience. You just need to come as you are. Come and give it a chance.
What if I'm not flexible?
You don’t have to be flexible to practice yoga. The postures can be modified to accommodate each and every different body type. Just show up and breathe! The teachers are available to guide you at your own pace.
Can I practice if I'm pregnant?
Considering that you are in good health, yoga is perfectly safe. Many of our teachers are moms and practiced throughout their pregnancy. Always consult your doctor first.
What should I expect?
Our classes are physically challenging so be prepared to sweat and burn some calories! Also be prepared to have fun as you move on your mat in a wave of up and down movements. The more you come the easier it becomes!
What should I wear?
Wear loose, breathable, and comfortable gym or yoga clothing. We keep the studio between 90-95 degrees to support flexibility and detoxification.
Will people be looking at me while I practice?
What about hydration?
No! Yoga demands focus! Students are too busy doing the poses as we challenge them
We guide the group as a whole with instructions leading each yogi into their own, personal practice. This means that each posture, movement, and exercise is unique to what the individual makes it to be.
Hydrate well BEFORE and AFTER class. We will never stop you from drinking water; however, hydrating during class will take you out of your practice, and practicing with water in your stomach will cause you to feel nausea. Many people think heat causes this nausea, but the truth is that almost always, poor hydration habits are usually the villain.
What should I eat before/after practice?
You should wait 2-3 hours after eating meat; 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours after carbs/starches; 1/2 – 1 hour after fruits and veggies. Practicing with a full stomach can be an interesting experience, you can expect to experience bowel movements, inflexibility and nausea. Now you know the issues, and knowing your own metabolism and digestive system, you can make your best decision.
How often should I practice?
Practice 3 times per week to see changes in your body. Practice 5 times a week and watch your life transform!
What about the tape on the floor!?
They are parking spots for your mat and help guide the flow of students in class for teachers and assistants. Please place your mat inside the marked tape and water, block and strap to the left upper corner.
What about those cool looking colorful mat towels?
Yogitoes mat towels are an important purchase, and are worth every penny! You will stop slipping on your mat, tripping on your bunched up beach towel, avoid getting injured, and get lots more of your practice!
Do you have showers or changing facilities?
Yes! In fact, we have both! Our studio space features men and women’s locker rooms that have changing rooms and showers. Shampoo, conditioner, and body wash are not provided. Towels can be rented for $2.
Where do I begin?
To begin you need to reserve your class spot and show up, that is all. You can call or email if you have any questions. Just come and be prepared to have fun, sweat, burn some calories, and meet inspiring, friendly people. For more information on classes, studio etiquette, our policies and other details, please check out our new students page.
How do I sign up for classes?
What should I bring?
Whether you’ve visited us at the studio or are checking us out online for the very first time, our “Schedule Now” button on our website homepage gives you the ease of reserving a spot at a class time that suits your schedule at any time! All members are required to create a MindBody Online account where they can view and register for upcoming classes and workshops. While it is not necessary to sign up in advance, it is recommended for classes in our smaller studios that may reach capacity (classroom capacities can be seen online when making a reservation). Making an online reservation will hold your spot in the class for up to 5 minutes before the class begins. If you have not checked in at the front desk by 5 minutes before the start of class, your spot will be released to those on the wait-list.
