What should I wear to class?

Wear comfortable clothes in which you can easily move. Try not to wear any lotions that will cause you to slip.

 

Should I eat before class?

We recommend coming to class on an empty stomach. If hunger is an issue, a light snack before class can help.

 

I’m not flexible, can I still take a class?

That’s the point! That’s like not showering because you’re filthy. Yoga is a journey.

 

Why should I practice yoga?

The short answer is yoga makes you feel better. Proper and controlled breathing can prevent and treat the many effects that stress places on the body. Yoga improves muscle tone, flexibility, strength and stamina, and the breathing exercises and meditation makes you healthier in mind, body and spirit. Our owner came to yoga because of her headaches—and she never looked back!

Can I bring my child to class?

The minimum age to attend class is 16 years old. We do not have children’s classes at this time.

Do you offer Prenatal Yoga classes?

Can I have a private event?

Yes! If you would like to have a yoga party, bridal shower, team practice, etc. – we would love to host you! Email us here!

What do I need to bring?

Bring water and a yoga mat if you own one. If you don’t have a mat, we have them along with other props to assist your practice.
