Yes, clean showers are available for use before and after class. Your possessions can be stored safely in our locker rooms.
How do I sign up for class?
You can sign up for any class via Mindbody. You can also arrive to the studio to register in person however please be aware some classes may be filled to capacity from the online bookings. We recommend arriving 15-20mins before class start time to ensure your spot.
How do I pay for class and what forms of payment are accepted?
Drop-in class and packages can be purchased via MindBody and we accept all major credit cards. You can also purchase and pay in the studio, where we accept major credit cards and cash.
How much is a class?
The drop-in price for a class is $33. But we offer a variety of monthly packages & class packages at a discount. We also offer limited-time promotions throughout the year.
Do I need to bring a mat and towel?
Mat and towel are required for class, but we do provide rentals for a small fee. We also sell water and coconut water.
How can I prepare for class?
It is best to prepare by drinking a lot of water during the day before your class and the night before. We recommend about 32oz of water long before class. Hydration should happen well before you arrive to the mat. Drinking too much water right before the class or during will only fill your belly and slow you down. That’s why it is also best not to eat 2-3 hours before your class time. We also recommend taking electrolytes. Please visit our New to Yoga page to learn more about what to expect.
Do I have to be flexible and strong?
Absolutely not! This is a common misconception. Everyone starts somewhere and flexibility is no different. You should seek to build flexibility and strength over the course of a lifelong practice, but it all starts with the first class. Over time you will get stronger and more flexible even if you find your first few classes to be very difficult to follow. It’s all about showing up.

What should I wear?
The yoga room is heated to about 105 Degrees Fahrenheit so we recommend wearing light, loose-fitting, sweat-wicking clothing. No matter the time of year the studio will always feel like summer so be prepared to sweat in what you wear.
Can I join a class a few minutes late?
No, the studio doors are locked right at class start time, so we do not allow students to join a class late. We highly recommend arriving 10-15mins before class to allow yourself time to check-in, store your possessions in the locker room and find a good spot for your mat in the yoga room.
How often should I take a yoga class?
This is completely up to you and depends on how much your body and mind can handle. We recommend starting with a hot yoga class 3 times a week. But for optimal results many students take class daily. Some even take multiple hot yoga classes in one day.

Yes, all our instructors are certified Yoga Teachers. They are professionals in the industry and experts in their craft so feel free to ask them any questions you may have before or after class.
