New Student Tips

We get it. Trying something new can be scary. Please don’t be anxious about your first class.  We were all first-time yogis at one point! We are always available to answer any questions you may have, but in the meantime, here are a few tips:

Please bring a yoga mat, a large towel to place on your mat, and a water bottle.

We highly recommend Yogitoes ® - sustainable, yoga towels that are designed to prevent slipping. They are available in the lobby for purchase or to rent.  We have mat cleaner in the studio for you to use (also for sale in the lobby), if your mat could use a little sanitizing after class.


Props.

We have straps, blocks, weights (for Sculpt) and blankets (for Yin) for you to use during your practice. We do wash and sanitize these frequently. You are welcome.


There is a women’s locker room and men’s restroom at the studio.

Both are equipped with a shower for your convenience. There are cubbies available to store your belongings in the women’s locker room and in the studio. If there is not a receptionist in the lobby during your class, the front door will be locked. If you feel more comfortable bringing your purse or wallet into the studio, please feel free. We just ask that you kindly turn your cell phone off – not everyone wants to hear your Justin Bieber ringtone in savasana.


We ask that you stay in the studio during class.

Coming late and leaving during class is distracting to others. If an emergency requires you to leave, please exit quietly and be sure to make eye contact with the instructor. 


Once in the studio, please be as quiet as possible.

Calm your mind before and after your class. This is your – and your neighbor’s – escape from the loud, demanding world we live in.


If you are worried about the heat, don’t be.

It is only there to help you. And while it’s hot, it’s not crazy hot. Our state-of-the-art heating and humidification system is designed to provide the optimal environment for each style of yoga we offer. It can take several classes to fully acclimate to practicing in a heated room. There is no rush. Take your time and lay down to rest when you need to. After all, it’s yoga practice, not yoga perfect.


Be kind to yourself and others.

Be proud of yourself (and those around you) for taking the time, putting yourself first, and doing something that is good for your mind, body, and soul.  Be gentle and kind to yourself.  You are here, you are present, and you are breathing and sweating.  The rest is just a bonus.


You are about to embark on a healthful journey with amazing rewards – including improved sleep, weight loss, stress reduction and increased flexibility. Plus, you get to be part of your community.
Enjoy the journey – have fun!

Tips

Please arrive 15-20 minutes early to your first class.

If you haven’t already registered online, this will give us time to do that, show you the studio and answer any questions you might have.  Also, it gives you time to set up your mat and chill out.


Avoid eating a big, heavy meal before your class.

We recommend that you refrain from eating a large meal before class, instead choose fruits, vegetables, and high protein snacks. Come well hydrated – drink water throughout the day both, before and after your class.


Wear comfortable workout clothing.

The studio is heated, thus come prepared to sweat. Breathable and stretchable fabrics are ideal. Please no shoes in the studio – for us Pacific Northwest natives, this is good chance to dust off your flip-flops. They are easy to slip on and off in either the locker room or just outside the studio door. Need some snazzy yoga clothes? You are in luck. Both studios offer a variety of yoga products available for purchase.
