New Student FAQs

Do you offer an intro special for new students?

Of course! We want to give you the opportunity to check out multiple classes and instructors to get a feel for the studio, so we’re offering a new student special for 10 days of unlimited classes for $10 to any new student.

What should I wear?

You don’t need fancy or expensive yoga clothes to come to class. But as with any physical activity, you should plan to wear something that’s comfortable and doesn’t restrict your movement. Keep in mind that you might be going upside down during class, so you won’t want to wear a shirt that’s too loose or shorts that are too short. Cotton doesn’t handle sweat well – sticking with a material that wicks sweat is your best bet. And you’ll be barefoot – socks and yoga mats don’t hang out together well! And we are all well aware of the see-through yoga pants problem. Ladies – bend over at home before you bend over at the studio to check.

Do I need to bring anything?

The only thing you need is a mat. A water bottle and face towel are also good things to have with you, but are not essential. We offer yoga blocks and straps for free to any student, and we offer studio mats and towels for rent if you don’t have your own or forget them at home. Don’t let your missing mat stop you from coming to class!

I’ve never been to yoga before, where’s the best place to start?

We love beginners! We offer modifications in all of the classes we teach, but we recommend that you come to our Sub-Urban Flow classes if you’re brand new (even with modifications, we tend to move quickly!). You’ll go slower through the poses and start to learn proper alignment which will set you up for success.

Other tips:
  • Think of the studio space as a digital detox zone. Please silence your phones and keep them with your personal belongings. If you need to have a phone next to you when you practice (for work or family purposes), please make sure it’s silenced so you don’t interrupt other students.
  • Be on time. We lock our doors at the start of class. Please plan to arrive 5-10 minutes early to have time to set up your mat and get ready for class. If it’s your first time at the studio, plan to get there at least 15 minutes early to fill out paperwork and get an overview of the studio.
  • Inform your instructor about any physical conditions he/she might need to know about. Keep in mind that we’re not always able to accommodate certain injuries in class, but we’ll try to give you modifications at the start of class that you can try out instead. If you do have an injury and would like greater instruction on how to modify your practice, you can book a Yoga Personal Training or Private Lesson appointment. We’ll work with you to find a flow that works and get you back on your mat.
  • Don’t worry about what you look like; think about how you feel. We all look different in poses – embrace it! Our instructors sometimes go around and assist students with their poses. This is often not to correct your pose, but to allow you to get deeper into your practice.
  • Stay for Savasana. Seriously, it’s the best part. Everyone needs a couple minutes of quiet in their day, and leaving early can disrupt other students. If you know you need to head out early, please notify the instructor before class and place your mat close to the door.
  • Laugh and smile! We don’t take yoga too seriously. Have fun, don’t be afraid to fall over and don’t sweat the small stuff.
