FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
[New Students] I'm new to yoga, which class should I attend?
If you’re new to yoga, we'd recommend Beginners Yoga as a good place to start. This class moves at a slower pace and breaks down the key postures, helping you to get a better understanding of the alignments.
You could also explore Morning Practice, Slow Flow or Yin Yoga, as these classes are easier to follow along. We also offer 1:1 private classes which could be helpful to you, especially if you have any injuries or health related concerns.
We do suggest that you try out a few of the above mentioned classes, before venturing Power Flow, as it is a dynamic and fast paced practice.
[General] What should I wear?
Wear light and comfortable clothes such as activewear that will allow you to stretch and move with ease.
[General] How early should I arrive?
On your first visit, we encourage you to arrive 15 minutes prior to the scheduled class time. This will allow you to check in with the teacher to discuss any injuries or health concerns and give you a chance to get familiar with the studio.
On your subsequent visits, please arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the class start time to set up your mat and get settled.
Doors open 15 minutes before the scheduled class time.
Doors are locked 1 minute before class begins, for security reasons.
While we understand that sometimes unforeseen circumstances may delay your arrival to class, please be aware that we strictly prohibit late students from entering after the class has commenced. Late arrivals disrupt the energy of the space and the teacher, which greatly affects how others experience their practice.
We recommend joining the online class 5-10 minutes before the start time to make sure you're all set up and there's no technical issues.
[General] What if I have an injury?
Please discuss any injuries or health concerns with the teacher before class begins. The teacher can offer appropriate modifications to make sure you have a safe and comfortable practice.
We also encourage you to consider a 1:1 private class. In a private session, the teacher creates a session tailored to your bodies needs and takes the time to explore or observe your bodies reaction, which can be challenging to do in a group class.
[General] What if I need to cancel my class?
We understand life circumstances may sometimes interfere with your plan to visit. We accept class cancellations up to 2 hours before the class start time, without forfeiting your pass.
If you are on single visit or class pass who cancelled within 2 hours before class or failed to attend will forfeit the class. If you are on intro offer or membership, you may be charged a $10 late cancellation fee or $15 no show fee. More information about cancellation policy
