Do I need to bring my own mat?
Yoga mats are available to rent or purchase at our location. If it is your first time to the studio the mat is on us! We do however encourage you to invest in your own mat. If you plan to make this a regular practice we suggest investing in a quality mat that supports your joints and has a slip free grip.
We also encourage you to bring a hand towel and bottle of water.
Is the room heated?
The Vinyasa classes are held at temperatures near 88 degrees. The heat warms up the muscles for your safety and helps with the detoxification process.
Gentle Flow and Yin Yoga classes are not heated.
◦ Please leave your shoes outside in the retail space before heading into the studio. We have cubbies inside the studio for your personal items.
◦ Although late comers are welcome, we highly encourage you to arrive early as to not disrupt other students once class has already started.
◦ Please no synthetic fragrances as many people are allergic. You will smell essential oils that are derived from natural sources. Please let the teacher know if you are sensitive.
◦ Hands on adjustments are provided in many classes. Please do not feel that an assist means you are doing anything wrong. We are just taking you a little deeper or showing you another option to try on. If you do not wish to be touched, please let the teacher/assistant know when they come around and they will be happy to leave you hands-free.
◦ Please be courteous about body odor and take precautions as the room gets hot and smells easily get trapped.
◦ Take rest: drop into child's pose to take a breath, recenter, and cool down if needed. If feeling overwhelmed or heated, it is ideal to stay in the room and get low to the ground.
◦ Connect! Plan to arrive early and set up close to your neighbor. Introduce yourself and make a new friend. This adds to the experience and the uniqueness of this community where YOU belong!
What is Heated Power Vinyasa? Is this similar to Bikram?
All yoga stems from the same ancient source. The experience will vary depending on the style, the studio, and teacher. The key differences:
Power Vinyasa Yoga, a derivative of Ashtanga, connects powerful breath with dynamic, flowing movements. Physical poses are held for shorter periods of time and connected through Sun Salutations A and B along with breath, creating the “flow” aspect of this practice. Often referred to as meditation in motion, vinyasa yoga cultivates: strength, endurance, flexibility, balance, focus, and tranquility. Vinyasa has both mental and physical benefits. Physically, sweat expels toxins and re-energizes your body. Mentally, the synchronized breathing relaxes your mind and helps to release any blockage of energy flow throughout your body.
Bikram Choudhury developed Bikram Yoga, composed of 26 copyrighted postures that are each done twice in a practice. A Bikram studio is characterized by heat, 108oF, and by mirrors, as the student is encouraged to check alignment.
A Vinyasa practice varies from class to class. There are no mirrors in the studio as students are taught to get connected with their bodies, feel their practice and focus on self-awareness.
