what we have

Etiquette

Please remove your shoes in the lobby

Sign in at the front desk

Set up your mat so that everyone has enough personal space and can see themselves in the mirror

Please leave all belongings and valuables -- purses, bags, clothing, etc -- in the cubbies in the back and changing rooms

Cell phones and smart watches are not allowed in the yoga room. Please silence your ringer to not disturb others in our small space

Water, mat and towel are required for practice.



Please keep conversations in the lobby and back, to let folks use the yoga room for meditation.

Please don’t be “extra” in your practice. Keep it simple.

Please do the postures instructed, as instructed, with the group. Do your “own” practice before, after, or at home.

Please stay in the room, except for reasonable toilet breaks.

Please, no talking during practice, unless spoken to by the instructor.

Follow along, do your best, stay in the room, and have a good time.

Please limit your use of fragrances, including scented hair, skin and bath products, as heat and sweat can increase their intensity

what   to   wear

We do not allow “underwear” to be worn as yoga clothes. Women should wear athletic bras designed as outerwear, and men may need to have loose shorts over some compression briefs. You may be asked to change or leave at the teacher’s discretion if your attire is inappropriate.



You want to wear as little as possible while still being appropriately covered.

We don’t care if you get your yoga clothes from the high-end designer specialty shops or thrift stores -- clean, covered and comfortable are all that matters!

Tank top or t-shirt             Compression shorts                Specifically designed

Sport / yoga bra                 Tank top or t-shirt            Shorts, capris or leggings


men

women

PLEASE NOTE

You want your yoga clothes to be relatively form fitting and stretchy -- fitted tank tops vs baggy cotton t-shirts, compression shorts vs basketball baggies.

All of our classes are done barefoot, and you will be asked to remove your shoes in the lobby (we don’t care about your pedicure!)

Late Arrival / Early Departure

Please plan to arrive at least 5 minutes before the scheduled class time, and at least 15 minutes if it is your first class or you need to pay for class.

Early departures are discouraged. You need to plan on staying in the room for the entire class, unless rare, exceptional circumstances require early departure with the instructor’s permission.


We lock the front door when class starts. This is for the safety and security of our students and staff, and to provide a serene, cohesive experience in every class. We do not have front desk staff to allow for late arrivals or early departures.  

We can delay the start of class by up to 3 minutes if we receive a phone call and let us know you’re coming. We cannot delay longer than 3 minutes.

Class   Cancellations
+ Winter   Weather

In the rare event of needing to cancel a class due to external circumstances, such as winter weather, we will post the cancellation to our social media and MindBodyOnline at least 60 minutes prior to the scheduled class time.

Holiday schedules are posted in the studio and online at least 1 week before the holiday.


We are open every day except December 25th.

Refunds, Transfers + Sharing, Expirations

We will convert unlimited packages to class cards.

We will transfer packages to a different person.

Package sharing is limited to our Family package (25 classes for $265).  All other class packages must be purchased for each individual.



Our class packages NEVER expire! We will extend any expiration date in the computer system. They are your classes forever!

We do not give refunds for unused packages except in very unusual and exceptional circumstances.
