Dress comfortably. Wear something you can easily move around in. Layers are great as your body temperature will likely change throughout the class. Barre classes do require grip socks which we sell in the retail lounge.
Slip off your shoes and store your wallet and phone in the cubbies provided in the front retail space. The teacher always locks the front door during classes, so you're personal items will be safe.
Plan to show up 10 -15 minutes early so that you can get signed in and settled before class starts.
Bring water and a towel if you like, or just use one of our towels from the prop wall. You may sweat, depending on the class. Hydration is key to an enjoyable yoga practice. Water is available in the lobby as well.
Most importantly, don’t worry about what you look like as a beginner. Even the best yogis were once just starting out. Come to class with an open mind and a sense of humor. Instructors will provide personalized attention and demonstrate poses or modifications as necessary. Be sure to let your teacher know if you are new or if you have any injuries.
We can’t wait to see you at our studio!

There are countless benefits to Yoga classes, including stress reduction, increased blood circulation, flexibility, strength, improved sleep patterns, and relaxation. A regular practice (at least two times a week) can reduce the symptoms of many chronic diseases (e.g. arthritis, diabetes, and thyroid disorders).
Yoga instructors commonly end class with the traditional acknowledgement of "Namasté." "Nama" means bow; "as" means I; and "te" means you. Therefore, Namasté literally means "bow me you" or "I bow to you." This gesture is a deep form of respect. Or, The light in me sees the light in you.
Yoga can be traced back to 5,000 years ago and is a Sanskrit word meaning to join, or yoke; union. Its full meaning is about the union of body, mind, and spirit. To join the poses with the breath.
This ballet inspired, core-centric class focuses on isolated exercises, alignment, flexibility, and posture as you work through targeted mindful muscle movements. Push yourself to the limit — and then find balance — as every exercise is incorporated with a deep stretch.
We start the class with relaxation and breathing to calm the mind and practice being still. Then, we warm up the body with sun salutations and standing poses. All classes end in a relaxing savasana. In some classes, time is left at the end to explore new or advanced poses.
If you have your own mat already, you can bring it! We also have mats available to rent for $1, and for sale in our retail lounge.
