Frequently asked questions about Yoga or Asana Yoga Studio.
I'm new to Asana Yoga Studio. What do I need to know before coming to my first class?
Please arrive 10 minutes before the start of your first class so you can register. This will also give us time to get acquainted and orient you to the studio.
*Doors open 15 minutes prior to each class*
Before class, please advise the teacher of any pertinent medical conditions that we need to be aware of, including pregnancy. To avoid class disruption, please do not arrive late. The doors will be locked at class start time.
Is yoga a religion?
No. Yoga is a philosophy that began in India an estimated 5,000 years ago. This ancient mind/body science embraces all beliefs and religions. Vinyasa yoga is a physical and psychological discipline that combines asanas (postures), pranayama (breathing) and meditation. Yoga is perhaps the only form of physical exercise that stimulates all of the body's systems.
What about yoga mats and towels?
The studio has a limited number of mats to borrow should you forget your mat. For hygienic reasons, we urge students to bring their own. Asana Yoga Studio is a proud distributor of Jade Yoga mats. Asana Yoga Studio does not supply towels.
What about parking?
There is street parking around the Chalet at the River and parking lots on either side of the building. Street parking is free after 6 pm. Parking in the lots fluctuates in price depending on events taking place in the area.
Do I need to sign-in at the studio if I reserved a spot on-line?
Yes. This helps to verify your participation in the class/workshop.
