How to Prepare for Your Yoga Class

  • Wear comfortable clothing to stretch easily.
  • Yoga is best practiced with bare feet and on an empty stomach. (Avoid eating 1-2 hours beforehand)
  • Avoid wearing perfumes, colognes, etc. or smoking cigarettes before class.
  • We encourage students to bring their own yoga mats, but we do provide free loaner mats and props. (These are also available for purchase at either studio.)
  • Inform your instructor if you have injuries, are pregnant, or have any medical conditions that may require caution.
  • Please enter the yoga studio quietly to support our meditative environment. If you are late, please check with the front desk to see if it is alright to enter.
  • Attend your correct class level to ensure your comfort and that of the other students.
  • Please turn cell phones and pagers off during class. (You may leave your cell phone with the desk attendant if you are expecting an important call.)
  • Classes of less than three students may be cancelled or shortened at the teacher's discretion.
  • We try to keep our class sizes small, so we encourage online check-in prior to class so that we may accommodate everyone. Online check-in saves your spot in class. Be sure to arrive at least 5 minutes early.

Choosing Your Classes

1. What Level am I?

  • Beginning Yogi = I'm new to yoga. Visit our Beginning Yoga page. (Teens ages 11 and up are always welcome in any of our Beginning Yoga classes with or without parent.)
  • Level 1 & 2 Yogi = I've done some yoga, feel comfortable practicing modifications for poses I'm working on, and want to continue and expand my practice. Consider either a beginning class for a curriculum that builds on itself each week, drop in to level 1/2 classes, or attend a topical workshop or class series.
  • Level 2 & 3 Yogi = I've been doing yoga for awhile, practice a variety of poses including inversions and backbends, and am looking to challenge myself in new ways. Sort for the level or style you want with the filter at the top right of the Drop-in Class Schedule, or try out a topical workshop.

2. What Do I Want to Gain?
Yoga was traditionally taught one-on-one so that a teacher could help a student address his or her unique challenges. Consider a visit with our Yoga Concierge, Maggie, to help design a plan that takes your health and practice to the next stage.

3. Drop-in to "drop-in classes" but make sure to register for everything else in advance.
Sign up online, in person, or over the phone (612.436.4700). You must register and pay in advance to save your spot in all workshops & class series, visiting teachers and trainings. Register early - workshops and classes fill up quickly! If you are new to the center, please arrive 15 minutes early to fill out a new student form or download it HERE and bring to your first class. Make sure to read the cancellation policy.

Yoga should be practiced on a regular basis, and it is recommended that you practice at least three times a week either in a class setting or on your own. All yoga classes will help increase flexibility and strength, but to find a class to suit your needs, call the studio at 612.436.4700 or visit our Yoga Concierge page.
