Q: I’m not ______ (fit, flexible, balanced, coordinated). Can I take your classes?
Absolutely! Yoga is for EVERY body, and we will help you reach your health and wellness goals. With our support, you’ll enjoy yoga’s many wonderful physical and mental benefits.
Q: Where are you located?
The studio address is 901 Glyndon St., SE, #102 Vienna, VA 22180. Most classes are held in person and virtually via Zoom. For in-person, please arrive 5-10 minutes early to have time for the teacher to check you in and for you to set up your space.
Q: Which class should I try?
Each teacher has their own vibe and will tailor the class to the students in the room. Vinyasa Strong and Fluid Yoga tend to be more physically demanding while Slow Flow and Stretch and Nadi Ball classes are more accessible. Vinyasa Flow classes tend to fall in the middle. Take advantage of the new student special to test them all out.
Q: What should I wear to class?
There aren’t any special yoga clothes. Wear comfortable clothing that allows freedom of movement. Socks can be slippery, so we recommend bare feet. No shoes on the studio floor, please! Place your shoes in the cubbies by the door upon arrival.
Q: What do I need to bring to class?
Bring an open mind to embrace all eight limbs of yoga and an open body willing to try new movements and poses. You might want a water bottle, and a water fountain is just outside the studio door. We have a few mats available to borrow if you don’t have one yet or forgot yours at home. We also have yoga blocks, blankets, bolsters, and Nadi Balls for you to use during class.
Q: How do I sign up for class?
Class registration happens via our website. Create an account, log in, and register for an in-person or online class. Walk-ins are welcome, but we recommend signing up ahead of time to secure your spot. Whether you sign up for an in-person or online class, you will receive the recording of the class and have access to play or replay it for the next three days.
