    Policies

    Please help us reduce your risk of injury and create a refreshing experience for all participants by following these guidelines:

    • 5-Minute Rule: Participants may enter a class up to 5-minutes after the scheduled start. Entrance is prohibited after 5-minutes have passed to ensure that all participants arrive early enough to become sufficiently warmed up for the vigorous parts of each class.
    • Please inform the instructor if you have any special considerations (e.g., pregnancy, injury, illness, recent surgery) which may influence your ability to take a class. Also, this will allow the instructor to provide options for success when necessary.
    • The use of personal music devices, cell phones and PDA’s, are not permitted during class. If a call or text or must be attended to, quietly leave the studio and return upon finishing.
    • Athletic attire must be worn during class.
    • If you need to leave class early, please inform the instructor.

    Etiquette
    Remove Your Shoes Upon entering the studio, leave your shoes or sandals near the door.
    Silence Your Cell Phone Make a habit of silencing your cell phone before you enter the studio. If your phone does ring in class, quietly get up and turn it off immediately.
    Arrive On Time Arrive at least 5-10 minutes before the class is scheduled to start to set up your mat, yoga block and other equipment that may be needed for class. Arriving early and settling in will aid in the overall Mind&Body connection to begin the class. For your safety, participants will not be permitted in class 10-minutes after the scheduled start of class. This is for you safety and the effectiveness of the class.
    Work at Your Own Level Keep in mind the classes have varied levels of participant skills and knowledge. The teacher will offer options for success in executing every move safely and properly. Working at your own level is always priority in attaining the most out of your mind&body practice.
    Go to the Bathroom During Resting Poses It is fine to leave class for a few minutes to go to the bathroom, but the best time to go is when there is a period of rest, either in Child's Pose or Downward Dog.
    Take time to Relax in Savasana! After all of your hard work, you deserve a final few minutes to reflect on your accomplishments, renew your mind and leave refreshed and ready to take on the remainder of the day. Your final relaxation in Savasana is an important part of your practice. To respect others during the Savasana refrain from leaving class early.

    Advanced Flow Take this challenging class that integrates advanced poses into your regular practice. This class is designed to help you build and create a skillful, conscious, powerful, and energizing practice that will transform your body and mind. You will be encouraged to test and find your limits. Modifications are provided for those with injuries or limitations.   

    All Levels This yoga class is designed for beginners, intermediate, and advanced yogis. 

    Hatha Use the body to attain enlightenment via the performance of asana combined with breath awareness and meditation. In the process, the mind, body and spirit come into alignment and unite. This is a slower, gentler form of yoga, and perfect for beginners.

    Kripalu Kripalu Yoga explores a variety of foundational poses (seated, standing and supine) to develop flexibility, strength and endurance. Classes are designed to generate mindfulness and incorporate relaxation techniques into the practice. All levels are welcome. 

    Mat Pilates Pilates is a conditioning routine that helps to build flexibility, strength, and endurance in the legs, abdominals, hips and back.

    Power Flow This class will challenge your body and mind as you move through postures in progressive, fun and energetic sequences to find your edge.

    Vinyasa Flow A more vigorous approach to yoga characterized by the synchronization of poses to the breath.

    Yin Yoga This class is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures or asanas that are held for longer periods of time.
