Frequently Asked Questions
What do I need to bring to class? We supply mats and props necessary for practice, however, as your practice develops, you may want to buy your own personal yoga mat. It is also helpful to wear a pair of sweat pants, leggings, or shorts, and shirt that’s not too baggy. No special footgear is required, as you will be barefoot.
Do I need to pre-register, or can I just drop in for a class? Pre-registration for classes is not required (unless specifically noted). We welcome drop-ins, and advise arriving 10 minutes before class starts to allow time to sign in at the front desk and become familiar with the studio. Pre-registration is required for workshops, trainings, and our Yoga 101 Sessions.
I’m not flexible, and I don’t know the poses–can I do yoga? Many people think that they need to be flexible or know the poses to begin yoga or join a yoga class. Come as you are, and you will find that yoga practice will help you become more flexible. This newfound agility will be balanced by strength, coordination, and enhanced cardiovascular health, as well as a sense of physical confidence and overall well-being.
Is yoga a religion? Yoga is not a religion. It is a philosophy that began in India an estimated 5,000 years ago. It is not necessary to surrender your own religious beliefs to practice yoga. In fact, the principles of yoga, such as meditation, mindfulness and exploration of our own divine nature, can enhance an individuals’ personal spiritual journey.
How many times per week should I practice? Yoga is amazing. If your practice is only one hour a week, you will experience its benefits. If you can do more than that, you will certainly see results sooner. Don’t let time constraints or unrealistic goals be an obstacle. Do what you can. Your desire to practice tends to expand naturally, and you will find yourself on the mat more and more.
