Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ: How do I sign up for a class?

Arrive at the studio 15 – 20 minutes before the class you would like to take begins. You will be asked to fill out an information sheet and sign a waiver form. Then you have a choice of paying for just that class, $10 hst included for your 1st class (or $17 + hst regular price), or (if you are new to our studio) you can take advantage of our introductory promotion and buy a one month unlimited membership for just $40+hst.

FAQ: What do I need to bring with me to a class?

You will need water and a yoga mat for all classes that you take. If you are taking a hot class you will also want to have a towel to wipe sweat from your face, as well as a towel for your mat so you don’t slip as you start to sweat. We rent or sell both yoga mats as well as hot yoga towels (anti-slipping towels for your mat). There is a $2 rental fee for a mat and a $3 rental fee for a towel. To purchase a mat in the studio they range from $30+hst – $78+hst. To purchase a hot yoga towel in the studio they range from $38+hst – 78+hst. We also sell water, coconut water and power drinks.

FAQ: What class should you take if you are a beginner?

A good starting place is a hatha class. In a hatha class poses are held. This gives a beginner an opportunity to learn how to do the poses. Another class for a beginner is the gentle warm flow class. This is a slow moving flow class using basic and modified poses. This gives a beginner an opportunity to understand the basic poses, and teaches them how to modify a more challenging poses.

FAQ: What is the difference between hot hatha and hot vinyasa flow (HVF)?

The temperature of the room is the same for both classes (100 degree F). The difference is the style of yoga. HVF is a fast paced class where you flow from one pose into another in differences sequences. These sequences are linked together with vinyasas. Whereas in a hot hatha class you are stepping in and out of the poses and holding each pose, giving the opportunity to fully open up into each pose.

FAQ: Can you practice yoga when you are pregnant?

If you already practice yoga on a regular basis then it is completely safe to continue while you are pregnant, however you do need to be more attentive to your body. If you are new to yoga then you should not start a regular yoga class. This is because when you are pregnant your body produces a hormone which allows the body to relax and stretch in preparation for the growing fetus as well as delivery. This hormone makes you more flexible. If you have not practiced yoga before, then you risk over stretching your body which can cause physical problems such as balance issues after you deliver your baby.

FAQ: Can you continue to practice hot yoga while being pregnant?

If you already practice hot yoga regularly before pregnancy then it is safe to continue. You need to be mindful to not go too deep into your poses and stay well hydrated.

FAQ: What is a Reiki practitioner?

A Reiki practitioner is a conduit of energy. By placing their hands above each chakra the energy flows from the practitioner to wherever it is required.

FAQ: What should I expect during a Reiki session?

You relax on a massage table fully clothed, while the practitioner holds their hands either on or above the body. The session lasts generally about an hour depending on the treatment required. As you relax you may feel a warm sensation or tingling in your body. Reiki treats the whole person, including body, mind, emotions and spirit creating benefits that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.
