Q: I would like to try yoga but I'm not flexible at all?
A: "Saying you’re not flexible enough for yoga is like saying you’re too dirty to take a bath." Learning the physical postures is just one part of yoga. Yoga provides a road map for healthy living and teaches mindful breathing and meditative practices that can be much more transformational than the physical asana practice. Everyone has their own unique challenges and is on their own journey, and we encourage you to give yoga a try and see what you discover about yourself.
Q: I've never done yoga before, which class should I start with?
A: We highly recommend that students who are new to yoga start with one of our Beginners Programs, these programs are designed to be informative and interactive and are specifically for new students. We'll get you started safely and prepare you for our regular group classes.
Q: Which class is right for me?
A: Our instructors provide safe and informative instruction in every class, but we recommend that you read the class descriptions before your first class, especially if you are brand new to yoga. Our Gentle Vinyasa classes move at a slower pace and are a good place to start. Be sure to read our class descriptions to select the right class for your level. Your yoga practice is yours, and every day is different. Listen to your body, if a pose feels good enjoy it, but if it doesn’t feel free to modify anytime.
Q: Do I have to sign up for class online or can I just stop by?
A: Please register for classes and workshops online to guarantee your spot in class and save time upon arrival at the studio. Check in is also available at the front desk, and we can register you for class if space allows. If you pre-register and don't make it to class, please remove your registration from the class roster to free up space for another student. You are not charged for class if you sign up and don't make it.

(these are best for students who visit once per week or less.) Our convenient monthly unlimited pass is the best value for those practicing at least twice per week. Sorry, class passes and memberships can not be shared, extended or refunde
Q: Can my child come to class with me?

Q: Can I share a class package with another person in my family?
A: Sorry, class packages and memberships can not be shared.
Q: What should I wear and how should I prepare for class?
A: Wear comfortable clothes suitable for exercising. Avoid eating a heavy meal 1-2 hours before class and be mindful of personal hygiene. Avoid the use of heavy perfumes.
Q: Do I need to bring my own yoga mat?
A: Yoga mats are available to borrow or to purchase at the studio if you need them but we highly recommend using your own mat.
Q: When should I arrive for class? Should I get there early?
A: Please arrive 10-15 minutes prior to the start of class to check in and get settled. New students are encouraged to arrive at least 15 minutes before class to speak with the instructor and discuss any questions, concerns or injuries. When you arrive, please check in at the desk and place your shoes and personal items in the cubbies by the door upon entering.
Q: What happens once I arrive at the studio?
A: We don't have a separate lobby at our studio, so to maintain a peaceful environment for yourself and your fellow yogis please enter the practice space quietly. Take only yoga essentials (yoga mat, towel and water) into the practice space with you and leave cell phone in the car or in the cubbies on silent. To maintain a hygenic environment, please remove shoes before entering the practice space.
Q: What happens after class?
Similar to the way you entered the practice space, please exit class quietly. Sometimes students stay after class for quiet meditation so be mindful of others. If you used any props, such as blocks or straps, please return them to the storage area. Your instructor will be available after class to answer any questions you may have.
Q: Can I stop by and check out the studio before I sign up?
A: To avoid disturbing classes in session it's best to make an appointment if you'd like to meet with someone before signing up.
Q: Will there be classes when the weather is bad?
A: Our priority is the safety of our students and teachers, so we will normally follow the closings of the West Chester School District to determine if conditions are safe. Our goal is to post weather cancellations on our online schedule about two hours prior to class start. When in doubt, be sure to check online or email us before heading out.
