This guide gives you the basic information to get started. Remember, the hardest part is walking through the studio’s front door!  Try different classes and talk with your teachers. Over time, you can tailor an individualized workout schedule that emphasizes exactly what you need, and if you need help, don’t be afraid to ask!  We can help you reach your goals!

Before Class


Clothes: Wear comfortable, stretchy clothing that is not too loose.  It should allow a full range of movement including twisting and bending. Our studio is equipped with bathrooms to change in and lockers and hooks for your belongings.
Bring: In door runners or dance shoes only.  Your water bottle, towel, and a mat.  *We supply mats to use for our classes.
Avoid: Strong perfume, essentials oils, cologne, and other scents.  Respect the space and your fellow participants by keeping body, mats, and equipment clean and odor-free.
Eating & Drinking: We don’t recommend eating for an hour before your class. A little water is okay, but too much liquid can be uncomfortable.

First Visit

Please arrive 15 minutes early.  We have some simple account details we have to review to complete your profile and you can speak with the instructor about any special needs you may have.

Once You Arrive

Footwear:  Outdoor shoes are left at the front entrance of the studio.   We ask that you only wear indoor runners and shoes to class.  Yoga is practiced in bare feet for traction and safety.  Outdoor shoes are not allowed on the practice floor during Yoga & PUR barre.  All other classes typically require indoor runners, dance shoes, sticky socks, or bare feet.


Electronic devices: Please turn off your cell phone. If you are on call, please have your phone on vibrate and do not disrupt the class.
Communicate: Let your instructor know if you have any injuries, limitations, or concerns so they can work with you.

During Class

If you are late: Being on time is great, but sometimes life happens. If you are late, enter the space quietly and join the class trying to minimize disruption. Take a few warm-up postures without disrupting the class and when you are ready, follow the teacher’s lead.  Please refrain from disrupting the class with in and outs unless it is an emergency.  Due to the nature of our services, if you are more than 30 min. late you will be bumped to the next class on the schedule for safety & health.

After Class

Clean: If you were given a mat to use for class, please bring them back to the front desk for cleaning by our team.
Take your belongings: Don’t forget your mat, water bottle, and clothes!  Any items left in-studio will be placed in the Lost and Found bin on the main floor.   At the end of each month, all items in the bin will be donated to charity.
