About the Studio
Frequently Asked Questions
I’ve purchased my first class. Can I just come to any class or do I need to register first?
After purchasing a class or a class card, you can reserve your spot on the class here.
We recommend arriving 10 mins prior to the beginning of the class. This way you will have time to sign in, store your belongings, set up your mat & props and enjoy some valuable relaxing time before the class starts.
What are the opening hours?
Our studio is only open when a Yoga or Meditation class is being held. Please see our schedule for this week’s classes!
What should I bring?
We provide various props for students free use during our classes including mats, blankets, meditation pillows, bolsters, and blocks. You can of course always bring a mat if you prefer to bring your own. We recommend wearing comfortable clothing that you can bend and move freely in. Also, if you chill or get hot easily, you may want to consider wearing layers. We practice in bare feet, therefore no special footwear is necessary.
What forms of payment do you accept at the studio?
Cash, credit and debit cards.
Do I need to register for a specific class?
Although we encourage walk-ins, our classes are limited to 15 people. To ensure you get a space in your chosen class, we advise you to reserve your spot in advance through ouronline booking system.
I’m pregnant. What classes should I join?
You are welcome to join the beginner’s class Thursdays at 18:00. It’s a great class for pregnant persons and the teacher will offer you variations when needed.
Can I opt out from receiving hands on assistance?
Absolutely! If, for any reason, you don’t want to be assisted via touch during the practice, let us know before the class and we will absolutely respect that. We work to foster a culture of consent.
Are there showers in the studio?
The male and female dressing rooms offer showers in case you would like to refresh after class.
First Time Trying Yoga?
We welcome you at any age, weight, or strength level.
I’m a beginner. What classes should I join?

You’ll find the detailed class and level descriptions here.
I’m not flexible… can I do yoga?
Absolutely! Start as you are and your yoga practice will help you become more flexible. Your new found agility will be balanced by coordination, strength, endurance, as well as a sense of overall well-being.
What should I wear?
Wear comfortable clothing that you can bend and move freely in. Also, if you chill or get hot easily, you may want to consider wearing layers. Since we practice with bare feet, no special footwear is necessary. Yoga basics – please arrive clean and fresh ;-)
How often should I practice?
Even if you only practice for 90 min a week, you will experience the benefits of the practice. If your schedule permits, starting with two or three times a week is ideal. After awhile you may find that your desire to practice expands naturally and you will find yourself wanting to practice more frequently.
Can I do yoga if I have an injury?
It depends on the injury. Please consult your doctor. Yoga can be a great aid for recovery but needs to be managed by a physician and addressed with caution.
How is yoga different from stretching or other exercise?
Yoga is unique because it connects the physical movement and the fluctuations of mind to the flow of the breath. By connecting the mind, body, and breath, you are able to direct your attention inward. It is through this process of inward attention that you learn to recognize your habitual thought patterns without labeling them, judging them, or trying to change them, thereby becoming more aware of your experiences from moment to moment.
The awareness is what makes yoga a “practice,” rather than a goal to achieve. Being in the moment, letting go rather than constantly striving for a particular outcome. The joy of the practice is the journey, not the destination. Yoga is NON-competitive, so it’s important that while you’re practicing that you let go of a competitive mind-set and do what you can do without judgment or comparison to your fellow student.
Is yoga hard to do?
You may find some poses challenging, especially if you’re tight or weak in certain areas. However, discomfort or feeling “sensation” is different than pain. Sensation might feel like heat, tingling, tightness, pulling, tugging, coolness, shakiness, etc. Pain that is acute (sharp, shooting), should be addressed immediately by backing off of a pose or mindfully coming out of the pose altogether.
