FAQs

I'm new to yoga - where do I begin?


We're so pleased you want to start your yoga journey!

We advise beginners and those getting back into their practice to attend the Monday night Yoga Essentials and Slow Flow classes to get their bearings. These classes are slower paced than our Power classes to allow for more focus on alignment and modifications. Yin is also suitable for beginners and focuses solely on stretching, opening the body, and mindfulness.
Power Flow classes are suitable for all levels, but are a more dynamic and faster paced practice heated to 28 degrees. For your initial Power classes, feel free to head towards the back row so you can observe whenever you need to and rest whenever desired. It's always useful to tell the teacher you're new to yoga. All our classes are suited to all levels but as mentioned above we do have some that are more suited to pure beginners than others.




How do I book?


All our in-studio bookings are made via MindBody. It's a piece of cake to use, and super safe. You can sign up here and start booking into your new favorite class. We do not accept walk-ins, all class attendance must be made via booking in online.




Do you have an introductory pass?


Yes we do! Our $59 Intro Offer gives you 30 days to try as many of our classes and teachers as you would like.




What should I bring?


Normally just yourself and an open attitude, but during the COVID-19 rescritions, everything: - mat - towel - water Extra items you might like to bring are: - block - strap - bolster, for Yin




What should I do when I arrive?


Please allow ample time for traffic and parking, you know how Melbourne can be! The last thing you want is to arrive late to your first yoga class to find you're locked out and/or stressed. Shoes off at the door, sanitise your hands and come up the stairs. At reception we'll take your name and sign you in, have a chat and show you around the studio. During COVID-19, we'll also take your temperature. Out the back you'll leave your gear a locker - no phones or bags are to be by your side in the studio.




I'm running late - can I still get in?


Nope, sorry 'bout it. We lock the studio door about 1 minute after the scheduled class start time. For the safety and respect of our students and teachers we cannot accept latecomers nor make exceptions. The first five minutes of a yoga class is all about finding stillness, silencing the mind, breathing exercises and safety information so please be mindful of your fellow yogis and refrain from interrupting the class.




What time do you open?


Our studio opens 15 minutes before class. For the respect and convenience of all students, we start and finish classes on time.




What's considered good yoga etiquette?


- Leaving your shoes downstairs.
- Putting all belongings, including phones, into a locker.
- Respecting your fellow yogis by keeping conversation to a minimum.
- Remaining in the studio for the duration of the class. Of course, if nature calls you can absolutely leave but if possible try and pop to the loo beforehand so you can absorb the entire class.
- Listening and respecting your teacher. If teacher says savasana, this isn't the time to perform a headstand ;)
- Cleaning your mat after the class using the sprays and wipes provided.
- Putting away any props you may have used for class.




Do you have showers?


We do, but during COVID-19 they are out of order. The hot water has been turned off anyway, so don't even try it, unless you're into that sort of thing ;)




What should I wear?



Something stretchy and easy to move around in. Most of our students opt for yoga leggings or shorts and a tank top.




Is the studio heated?


Yes. It's cosy, not hot. Slow Flow and Yin classes are heated to 24˚. Power Flow up to 28˚ During COVID-19, we are setting all classes to a max of 28˚.




Can I still practice with an injury/pregnancy?



We always direct you to discuss all injuries or health concerns with your doctor before practicing. With their advice, the decision is then up to you. Please note, practicing with any injury or condition is at your own risk. It is important to discuss any injuries with the teacher before class so they can offer modifications where needed. Always honour your body and back off if you ever feel pain.
One of the amazing things about Yoga is that it is non-competitive - so please let go of any ego and practice within your limits. "Your ego is not your amigo." :)

How to cancel out of a class


See this handy how to guide.




I have a pass, but I can't book in!


If you have just purchased a Studio Intro Pass, One Month Unlimited Pass or a Flexi Pass and are having trouble booking into a class, it's probably because you have already booked a class, so the activation date of your new pass starts after the class you're trying to book into. Confusing? Sorta. Can if be fixed? Of course! This ain't The Matrix. All you need to do is cancel out of any classes you have already booked into. Then book yourself into the first class you want to attend, then book back into the rest.
