Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need a mat? What do I bring?
You may bring your own yoga mat or borrow one from the studio. You can also bring a towel and water bottle if you’d like. We sell Jade yoga mats at the studio if you’d like to purchase your own mat. We also sell bottled water at the studio.
Do I need to pre-register for class or can i just drop in?
While pre-registering for class is not required, it is helpful to us you sign-up ahead of time online. If you can’t end up attending the class you signed up for, we will transfer your payment to the next class you attend. Most students start with the $25 New Student Special for two weeks unlimited yoga, but if you are visiting from out of town or only want to take one class you can drop-in for $17.
What time should I arrive to the studio?
Please try to arrive 15 minutes before class arrives to fill out a new student waiver form and so that we can help you get settled in and oriented to the studio. In the event that you are running late, remove your shoes and come in and join us quietly (we can check you in after class).
what should i wear?
For most classes wear clothes that you are comfortable in and don’t mind sweating in. For yin and restorative classes, looser fitting clothing is nice. Its always a good idea to bring layers, especially in the winter months. Yoga is practiced barefoot so slip off your shoes in the lobby before entering the main studio. You can bring socks in to keep your feet warm during deep relaxation at the end of class:).
do you offer heated classes?
While we do not offer “hot” classes, we do keep our classes heated between 72-78 degrees depending on the teacher. In vinyasa classes you can expect to sweat, but its always a good idea to bring layers to help regulate your temperature if you like to be on the warmer/cooler side. On hot summer days, we do use air conditioning (mostly to regulate humidity and air flow since we cannot open the windows in our old mill building).
