Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to bring a yoga mat? Answer: If you have one, you are welcome to bring it. If you do not (or if you left yours at home!), no worries. We have plenty of mats to share with our community. We use a safe natural cleaner on our mats at the studio to ensure you can use our mats with confidence.
Do I need to register in advance? Answer: That depends on what class you are coming to. Some of our specialty classes, workshops or specific class series do require advance registration, and that would be noted in the description. But our regularly scheduled classes (ex: Level 1: Beginners, Pre/Postnatal, etc.) are considered "Drop-in" classes and do not require advance registration.
How hot is the room for a heated class? We run our heated classes at or around 86 degrees. Not so hot that people are passing out, but hot enough to feel some extra sweat and allow your muscles to warm up more quickly!
I see a description for a class that I do not see on the schedule, what's up with that? We are a small community yoga studio, and we do not have the time or space to offer all of the desired classes all during the same period. So often classes are offered in rotating sessions (example: Story Stretchers is offered on a rotating schedule with Karma Kids in alternating months) Check out the "Events" page to see if there is an upcoming session you are interested in. Or send us an email to enquire about a specific class you are interested in!

Which Class is Right for You?
ARE YOU NEW TO YOGA?
Beginners Yoga & All Levels
A great place to start your yoga journey. This class provides more breakdowns and demos for the new student. It is accessible to the beginner, but still valuable for all levels of students. The sequence allows students to learn about the postures, breathing and meditation, allowing you to feel comfortable before moving on to level 1-2.
IN THE MOOD TO FLOW AND DEEPEN?
Take time to expand your practice by experiencing poses in a new and creative way. Attention is paid to deepening poses, facilitating creative flow, increasing the use of breath and building edurance. In these classes we begin to explore the depth of poses and the flow of the practice.
IN THE MOOD TO RELAX AND UNWIND?
Gentle & Candlelight Restorative
Need to relax and unwind? These are the classes to fit your mood. Gentle combines postures, breathing and meditation to inspire tranquility and promote a sense of overall well-being. Candlelight Restorative focuses on re-energizing the body with gentle and supported poses to open up the body and mind. Poses are held longer with emphasis on bringing the body back into balance.
IN THE MOOD TO SWEAT AND DETOX?
Heated Level 1-2
is a dynamic and vigorous Flow practice in a heated room (around 85 degrees) that is a total body workout that tones muscles and detoxifies organs. The sequence is a fusion between Vinyasa Yoga and traditional Power Yoga series, incorporating the best of both worlds. It increases strength and tones muscle while promoting relaxation and stress relief.
IN THE MOOD TO BE INSPIRED?
Karma Yoga & Meditation
These classes benefit the community and our spirits while embracing the true meaning of taking our yoga off the mat. All donations are given to specific charties and organizations to help benefit a wide variety of communities. Meditation helps to deepen our yoga practice by expanding beyond the asanas to truly feel the benefits of yoga.
