I'm not very flexible. Will I be able to do it?
This is a good reason to come to a class to try to loosen any tight muscles. Everyone has somewhere in their body that they can create more flexibility.
I have never done yoga before, will I be able to take the class?
All the classes (except the power and hot flow two classes) are geared for beginners and the instructor will ensure that you are comfortable and understand how and why you are doing a posture.
I already work out at the gym, do I need to go yoga?
Although many forms of exercise provide a wonderful physical workout, only yoga can also claim to be a therapeutic system that helps heal injuries, improve chronic illness, and balance mental stress.
Do I need to book in advance?
No, but come at least 15 minutes before the beginning of your first class. To reserve a spot, we recommend registering online.
How early do I need to come?
Please arrive at least 15 minutes early to find parking, sign in and familiarize yourself with our facilities. Classes begin promptly & are subject to room capacity.
How much does it cost?
A variety of reasonably priced passes are offered. Please visit the Rates section for the amounts.
Is it okay to eat before I come?
Try not to have a meal before a class. Have a light snack or eat a couple of hours before so that you are not hungry during the class.
What do I need for yoga?
You will need a yoga mat, a bottle of water. If you tend to sweat or are doing a hot class, bring a towel for your mat. If you don’t have any of these, they are available for rental or purchase at guest services.
What should I wear?
Wear comfortable clothes that do not restrict your movement or your freedom to breathe.
I have injured myself. Is it risky to do any yoga?
Depending on your injury we will advise you of modifications you can do so that you can heal more quickly. Let us know before a class what health concerns you have so that we can give you the appropriate variations to suit you.
I am feeling under the weather, should I still come to yoga?
Feeling sick is our body’s way of telling us that something is wrong and that we may need to slow down. A regular Yoga practice strengthens the immune system and helps to fend off colds and flu, but once you are already sick it is important to rest, drink plenty of fluids and only practice very gentle yoga poses at home.
Where do I keep my belongings?
At each of our centers, we have change rooms available for you to keep your gym bag and clothes as well as lockers for you to keep your important personal items. Cell phones are not allowed in class to avoid disrupting your yoga practice.
By taking yoga will I be adopting a religion?
Yoga is not a religion, it’s a technique of physical movements leading to improved health. If yoga has a belief system, it’s simply to become more connected to your body.
