Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is there any studio or yoga etiquette I should be aware of?
    Yes, thank you for asking, but the most important thing is that you feel comfortable, so if you get something "wrong," don't worry. There is no wrong way to practice yoga! A lot of these suggestions will make class more enjoyable for you too! Please pre-register for class. This is really helpful for your teacher and frees them to connect more personally with everyone before class. Please arrive to class 10 minutes early, especially if you are taking a class that requires lots of props, like restorative or yin. If you do come to class late, it's ok! We're glad you're there. Please wait until the opening meditation is over before entering the practice space. Please turn off your phone AND your smart watch or set to airplane mode. Even lights and vibrations are distracting to others, and probably to you too! (Speaking of watches, taking off any watch will make your yoga class more relaxing. We'll let you know when it's time to go!) We all know not to come to class if we're feeling sick. Please also stay home if you have an ongoing, non-contagious cough. Most of us are coming at least in part because we need to relax, and these days being in an enclosed space with someone who is coughing a lot can be really stressful. Please refrain from wearing scents to the studio as this can bother some students or even make them ill. Please put your props back as neatly as possible so that they are beautiful and tidy for the next person to use them. If your body makes a noise, don't despair! It could be a snore, a little passing of gas, a grunt, or a sigh. It's all normal. Carry on! Most importantly, please take care of yourself! If you need water or the bathroom or to rest, don't think twice, it's alright!
  • I'm brand new to yoga. Where should I start?
    Starting is definitely the hardest part, so my first piece of advice is just to start! Having said that, we do offer beginners workshops periodically. If we have one scheduled you will find it here. And if that doesn't work for you, start with a class labeled "Slow" or "Mixed Levels." Let the teacher know you are new. If you don't like the class or it's too hard or too easy, try a few classes. All the teachers are different, even if the class name is the same. Yoga is a very broad discipline and our teachers all have different backgrounds. There is a class out there for you!
  • How do I sign up for class?
    Please visit our class schedule and click "register." You will be directed to a page to register and pay, if need be. You may need to create an account. Please do be sure to pre-register for all your classes, including in-person ones.
  • Do I need to pre-register for class?
    Yes. You can sign up for online classes until the start time. For in-personclasses, it is extremely helpful for you to pre-register, but if you forget, we can still help.
  • Is it normal to think yoga is really hard?
    Yes. Yoga has a reputation for being "easy," but most people find yoga difficult, especially at first. Keep at it and you may surprise yourself. With consistent practice, you will make progress, which is super fun and encouraging.
  • Should I be breathing in any particular way?
    As a beginner, I think the best advice is just to breathe! Be aware of your inhalations and exhalations as much as possible. It is recommended that you breathe through your nose. Your teacher may teach a particular breathing technique at the beginning of class, in which case, definitely try it out. Otherwise, just be sure you are breathing, especially in more challenging positions.
  • How often should I do yoga?
    It depends. How often can you reasonably practice? When I take class 3-5 times a week, I get the most benefit, but I know that is not practical for everyone. Consistency is more important than anything. Come as often as you can, but ultimately, the goal is to commit to a consistent practice, whether that’s once a week with your favorite teacher or three times a week as your schedule allows.
