FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

COVID-19 Self-Assessment

We are asking all clients to self assess prior to visiting our studio. Please do not attend if you have any of the symptoms listed or have been exposed to anyone with the Coronavirus.

The following measures have been put into place at our facility: 

  • Ensuring a distance of 2 metres from staff and students

  • Use of masks when appropriate physical distancing is not possible

  • Use of CDC approved disinfectant on contact surfaces

  • Hand sanitizers available at entrance as well as inside studio. Please use upon entering and exiting studio

  • Asking students to place mat and equipment at designated spots in studio to maintain adequate physical distance

We have made significant revisions to our regular operations in order to create a safe space for our clients and staff. See details below.

What should I bring to class? Note - revisions due to Covid-19

  • Yoga mat. We ask that you please bring your own. We also have mats available for purchase, starting at $35

  • Props. For now, we are is not allowing use of studio bolsters, straps and blankets so please bring your own items. Sanitized cork blocks are available for our students or you can bring your own. We have a selection of yoga products for sale so check our product page. 

  • Full water bottle

  • Towel. Full length towels are not usually necessary.  A small hand towel to wipe your brow or dry your hands is typically all that is needed.

  • Comfortable clothes. Layers are best. Consider a tank or tee shirt with a hoody. Tights are a great option. Sweats are fine but not too baggy as you will find they get in the way. Yoga is traditionally a barefoot activity but bring a pair of socks for Savasana (end of class pose) if you like.

Must I pre-register for a class? Note - revisions due to Covid-19

This is mandatory. Due to Covid-19, studio space is significantly reduced. If you are unable to attend, please let us know asap as will free up a spot for someone else. 

All of our classes are currently hybrid so you may choose  in-person or online option. Should you prefer to practice with us at home, pre-registration is required so that a Zoom link can be sent to you. 

How do I reserve a place in class ahead of time? 

There are several options for booking a class: 

Online booking is quick and easy. On the Class Schedule page, click on the green "sign up" button for the class you would like to attend. This requires a one-time sign-on to create a profile.  After this, you can just click on the "sign up" button to pre-register. 

We get it! sometimes it's just better to speak with someone. Do not hesitate to give a call and we can get your class reserved over the phone. 

The best option after 5 PM when there is no one to answer the phone! We check our email messages frequently and aspire to answer any questions in a timely fashion.

Is there a place to store personal items? Note - revisions due to Covid-19

We are now asking that students keep all personal items in their own allotted space beside your mat. We kindly ask that all cell phones be turned off/muted for the duration of your class. 

I have never done yoga. What class would you recommend?

There are a number of classes offered for beginners.  Hatha Essentials is a Level 1 hatha class suitable for healthy individuals. It incorporates poses for strength, flexibility, mindfulness and balance. Gentle Hatha and Slow Flow + Meditation encompasses a similar repertoire but at a lower intensity. Yin Yoga focuses on the stretch and breath components of yoga. If you have limitations of any kind, Therapeutic Yoga may be an option for you. 

Is this Hot Yoga?

Our studio is usually set at 21 to 22 degrees Celsius so it is "room temperature yoga". As you start moving through your practice, you will warm up organically - and maybe even perspire a little! - depending on the intensity of the class.
