NEW TO YOGA? What style of yoga will I be learning? We have different types of classes at our studios - there's something for every level of student. To see the different types of classes we offer, click here!
MY BODY IS NOT FLEXIBLE CAN I STILL DO YOGA? Of course! Yoga is not just for the super bendy. We offer open-level classes with modifications for each pose to accommodate all different body types. If you want to develop more flexibility, though, taking classes will definitely help you get there!
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR TO CLASS? Wear something comfortable that allows you to move freely: gym shorts, spandex, or sweat pants and a t-shirt, tank top, sweatshirt, or long sleeve t-shirt. Shoes are prohibited, and socks are optional. Keep in mind that you will be working your way toward putting your body in some interesting positions. Should you be wearing baggy or revealing clothing, your neighbor may get a little more than asked for…
WHAT SHOULD I BRING? All you need to bring is your clothing and an open mind. Yoga mats ($2) and towels ($1) are available for rent, though you are welcome to bring your own.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT? You will move, breathe, sweat, and quiver. You will be challenged. You will see postures that you cannot do—though we will guide you into postures before you even know it. Your first few yoga classes may be confusing, perhaps even overwhelming at times, and the learning curve is very steep. As you progress, poses become increasingly familiar. When the movements become natural enough that you don’t have to think, you can connect movement with breath - then, the moving mediation can truly begin.
WHAT SHOULD I DO? Lay your mat at the center of the room so you can hear the teacher, and watch others if you get a little lost. Be sure to mention any injury to the teacher before the class begins
IS THERE ANY STUDIO ETIQUETTE THAT I SHOULD BE AWARE OF? Please see the Policies page.
DO I NEED TO REGISTER FOR A CLASS ONLINE? Though not required, pre-registration will ensure your spot in any class and is most helpful for peak evening classes.

DOES MY NEW MINDBODY ACCOUNT NOT REFLECT THE CLASS PACKAGE I HAVE ALREADY PURCHASED? You have likely created a duplicate account to sign-up online that is not associated with your existing Mind Body account that was created when you first visited Yoga Vida. Please ask our front desk staff to merge your accounts, or email firstname.lastname@example.org with a description of your issue.
HOW DO I LOGIN WITH THE YOGA VIDA MOBLIE APP? To use our Mobile App, download the App to your phone & sign in using the same MINDBODY username and password you use to sign up for classes online. PLEASE DO NOT CREATE AN ENTIRELY NEW ACCOUNT, AS THEN WE WILL HAVE TO MERGE DUPLICATE ACCOUNTS SO THE MOBILE APP RECOGNIZES YOUR EXISTING CLASS PACKAGES.
