Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
How do I sign up for class?
To sign up for a class, click one of the buttons below to download one of our smartphone apps (preferred) or use the desktop version. Once there, select the class and package that suits your needs. If you’re a new client, click that button instead to learn more about our studio and take advantage of our deeply discounted introductory offer.
Why do I need to buy a class or package before booking?
A couple years ago, we moved to making all classes prepaid to streamline class check-in, reduce waitlists, and improve overall client experience. You can choose to drop-in for a single class (most expensive) or attend lots of classes using our monthly unlimited (best value).
How do I cancel a class/what’s your cancellation policy?
Sometimes your best intentions are thwarted by life. We get that. If you find you’re unable to attend a class, we ask that you cancel your class at least three (3) hours prior to the class start time. This allows us to move other clients off of waitlists to enjoy our classes.
If you’re unable to meet the cancellation deadline, a single class pass is deducted automatically from your account or a $15 late cancellation fee is charged if you are on an unlimited package.
Sometimes we cancel class too
When class sign-ups fall below five (5) clients, we will cancel class and inform you via email, text message, and/or phone call. Fortunately, this doesn’t happen often, but please be sure to keep your contact information up-to-date so you can receive the notification. Your contact information can be updated using your phone’s app or through the desktop app.
Very importantly, Please let your instructor know if...
…you’re new to the studio or class format.
…you’re feeling dizzy or lightheaded.
…you have injuries/medical conditions your instructor should be aware of (NOTE: we’re not doctors)
…you prefer no hands-on adjustments.
Do you offer child care? Are children allowed in class?
No. We do not offer child care. Children under the age of 12 are not permitted to attend class unless it is a special children’s class. Children between the ages of 12 and 16 should be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

Do you offer hot yoga? at what temperature do you practice?
No. All our yoga classes are considered warm with temperatures between 75 and 85 degrees depending on the type of class. Beginner classes lean toward the cooler side while more advanced classes are warmer.
I’m new to yoga, what classes should I start with?
To get started, we suggest the following classes:
Restore + Reiki
Beginner Yoga is the best place to start because you’ll experience the full range of yoga offered at the studio. In each class, you’ll learn something new about yoga, work through a slow-paced vinyasa flow, stretch your muscles and connective tissue with a yin sequence, and finish with a truly relaxing restorative pose.
While you’re in the beginning stages, you should also sign up for Gentle, Restore + Reiki, and/or Yin Yoga. Gentle yoga will help you improve flexibility and balance; Restore + Reiki will give you a chance to rest and recharge; Yin will stretch your body and provide a soothing release.
How should I prepare for a Yoga class?
Don’t be nervous; we have students of all ages and experience.
Bring an open mind and heart.
Drink plenty of fluids to be properly hydrated prior to class.
For active classes, fuel your body with calories and nutrients.
Leave your shoes at the door and free your toes.
Wear cool, comfortable clothes - moisture wicking fabrics are best.
We have plenty of mats, bolsters, blocks, blankets, and belts.
What kind of yoga classes do you offer?
Yang vs. Yin Yoga. Let’s back up a step here. Yoga can most generally be broken down into two fundamental types - yang and yin. Yang practices are physically active and can make you sweat - sometimes profusely. Yin practices, on the other hand, are less active - exploring stillness and depth.
Yang/Active classes. About two-thirds of our yoga classes fall in the yang/active category. They’re called by different names, but all involve flows through various poses (asanas) at various paces. For beginners, slow flow classes are best - providing more time to get into each pose. As you grow in your practice, you may desire more physically demanding, faster flows.
Yin/Restorative classes. The other third of our yoga classes are yin/restorative in nature. These classes focus on stretching the connective tissue of the body through longer holds lasting three to five minutes each. After each class, your body and mind should feel more open and relaxed.
Do you offer classes for beginners?
Yes! While we regularly offer slow flow classes each week, we also have special beginner classes and workshops where you can learn the fundamentals of yoga including many of the base poses in our Vinyasa Flow classes. If you’re just getting started, our beginner offerings are a great way to build a strong foundation for your yoga practice.
How often should I practice?
Our clients practice yoga for all sorts of reasons, but they generally fall into the following basic categories:
Primary. For those who use yoga as their primary wellness regimen, daily practice is ideal. Also, look for various workshops we offer throughout the year to expand your practice.
Complementary. If you’re pairing yoga with other forms of exercise, you’d do well with one to three sessions per week to build strength and flexibility.
Recovery. Whether coming back from injury or trying to avoid one, one to three session of Yin/Restorative Yoga is smart. The more active you are, the more important it is to build recovery into your weekly routine.
How should I prepare for a fitness class?
Don’t be nervous or self conscious; we are a very welcoming community comprised of all ages and experience.
You’re going to burn calories and sweat - fuel and hydrate to avoid bonking, or worse.
Wear cool, comfortable clothes - moisture wicking fabrics are best.
Never walkout on a cool-down; your body needs it!
What kind of fitness classes do you offer?
We offer a wide range of fitness classes throughout the year and rotate formats frequently to keep things fresh. Please take a look at our schedule to see what is currently offered and peruse our class descriptions to see the range of formats we can deliver.
How often should I take fitness classes?
A good benchmark is three to four classes per week. This allows sufficient time for recovery between efforts while maintaining and/or building your overall fitness level. If you plan to workout frequently, we strongly suggest mixing in yin/restorative classes to keep you going and stave off injury.
