FAQ's for Beginners

What do I do when I get to the studio?

Arrive 10-15 minutes before your first class starts. There are 2 registration forms to complete (see below). The instructor will take your temperature, have you sanitize your hands and discuss any of your concerns or health issues. Please remove your shoes, put away your belongings and arrange your yoga space.

What should I bring to class?

Please bring a mat, block(s), strap and a water bottle.

What should I wear?

Loose, stretchy, comfortable clothing. Socks are optional - you can wear them to class, just plan to take them off when you start your practice. Please avoid strong scents in the yoga space.

Do I have to be flexible?

NO! Yoga is for everyone! You just need to know where your limits are and have patience with yourself. Our instructors will happily provide you with modification options for any pose, so that you can receive all the benefits without pushing or hurting yourself. Just remember to listen to your body and practice self-compassion.

How many times a week should I practice?

You will see benefits from attending a class even once a week. Try to practice according to how you feel and determine a routine that works best for you; a little yoga every day or a longer practice a couple times a week.

How do I prepare for class?

The most important thing to remember is that practicing is an exploration. Each pose is an experiment. Go slowly and listen to your body. And remember to breathe. When you are breathing in harmony with your movements, you are paying attention in a deep way.

Consistent practice over a period of time will lead to results. If you stick with yoga, you will enjoy greater health and well-being as a result.

Do I have to prepay/register for class or can I just show up?

Please register for classes using Mindbody or text/e-mail Lisa at least one hour before class.

Does yoga help relieve stress?
