New Student Guide

 
 

How do I pick a class?  

If you are new to yoga we recommend you start with a class that is indicated as level 0 or level 1. Our Yoga Basics for Beginners classes are designed for beginners. If you are already physically active and you have a sense of adventure (and a sense of humor) you are welcome to attend any class. Just let the instructor know that you are new. You can see our class schedule online here.


What should I wear?

Wear something comfortable and stretchy - not too bulky - layers are good. It's best if tops are either fitted or can be tucked in so they won't ride up as you move.


What should I bring?

We have all the equipment you need for your practice. A closed-top water bottle and a towel are a good idea, especially for our hot yoga classes. If you'd like to bring your own mat, you are welcome to, but we have mats available for no charge.


Anything else I should know?

  • Arrive 15 minutes early to your first class so we can show you around and get you signed in.
  • It's best not to eat right before class, but a light meal 2 to 3 hours before class will help give you stamina.
  • Please turn off your cell phone during class.
  • It's customary to leave your shoes in the lobby so the studio floor stays clean. 

Do I have to preregister? 

You do not need to preregister, but it does save time during check-in when you do. All of our regular classes are drop-in and you can attend any class you like. See our class schedule here.
