Many of our members arrive as much as 20 minutes before the start of class to socialize. In order to not disrupt the flow of class, we ask that you arrive to class early (10 minutes). Doors close promptly at the start of class. This insures that no one’s experience is interrupted.
Our classes are an hour and fifteen minutes. You first check in at the front counter and make your way into our studio. If you didn’t bring your own mat, not to worry, we have plenty that you can use free of charge. Once in the studio, the staff will let you know when it is OK for you to take off your clothes and place them in a cube (fancy way of saying shelf). After that, you can find a spot for your yoga mat and sit down, stretch, or be social until the class begins. We have bathrooms and cold water for you as well! Our classes are geared for all levels of yogis (including beginners). Make sure to tell your instructor if you have any special physical needs such as a knee injury, etc. They will make sure to tailor parts of the practice to your needs.
At the end of class we all do the final yoga pose, shavasana, which is intended to relax your body. After this time, herbal tea is passed around to all the yogis and you are free to relax, talk, stretch, etc. Some yogis usually head out to eat a small bite afterwards.
Most of our yogis bring a yoga mat and a towel to dry off. Other than that, all you need is an open mind and your naked self! We provide you with water for hydration. Don’t worry if you forget your mat or towel, we have plenty of extras.
