The Usual Questions:
What are the class fees?
This is a donation class. That means that you can pay as much or as little as you’d like. Cash donations are accepted at the end of class and are not mandatory.
When should I arrive?
Class begins promptly at 1:00 P.M. In order to avoid disrupting class (and causing yourself undue stress), plan to arrive on time (5-10 minutes prior to the class start time) to sign-in and prepare for a great practice.
What should I wear?
Wear comfortable attire that will stretch with you and allow for a full range of body movements (yoga pants or shorts and a fitted t-shirt or yoga top). Avoid wearing clothing that is too baggy. Typically yoga is practiced with bare feet. Consider the temperature when planning your attire. Layers can be useful in the spring and fall.
What should I bring?
To practice yoga, all you really need is you. To make your practice more comfortable, we suggest you bring a yoga mat, a towel and/or a blanket, water, and sunscreen.
