what to know before you go
what should i wear?
Light athletic clothes are best. Dress appropriately for movement and sweating. Keep in mind that our studio is family friendly and dress accordingly. Get ready!
when should i arrive?
Please arrive to class at least 15 minutes early. Feel free to introduce yourself to the instructor. You can also share with the teacher any injuries that you feel are important for them to know. Our teachers are here to help. Please feel free to ask questions.
what should i bring to class?
Bring an open mind, a large towel, a yoga mat and a water bottle. If you don’t have any of these things, you can rent them or buy them at the studio.
why is the room heated?
Because sweating is an essential bodily function and you should do it every day. Heat helps to soften your muscles and joints, which helps you avoid injury and get more out of your practice.
what if i’m not flexible?
Then you should definitely come to yoga. Through a consistent practice you will increase the range of motion in all of your muscles and joints. You may never put your leg behind your head, but you’ll move through life with more comfort and grace.
what if i’ve never done yoga?
Then you should experience it for the first time at a studio dedicated to helping new students have a mindblowingly-positive experience, Pure Power Yoga. We’ve found that knowing too much can be more limiting than knowing too little.
should i eat before class?
It depends. How hungry are you? If you’re starving, eat a small amount of high-octane food, like some nuts or a small smoothie. Food within an hour or two of a practice is perfect, but too much food in the stomach can be uncomfortable. Keep it light and make sure to drink lots of water.
can kids attend?
Right now, we invite students ages 16 and up. Students under the age of 18 must have their waiver signed by a parent or guardian. Please keep in mind that children should be escorted at all times.
what if i don’t want to be assisted?
Instructors will offer “hands-on” assistance to students throughout class in order to deepen their practice. We have put a “red chip, green chip” system into place at the studio. It’s simple. If you don’t want to be assisted, just place the chip in the upper right hand corner of your mat with the red side facing up. Otherwise, the green side is up.
who can benefit from yoga?
EVERYONE benefits from stepping onto a yoga mat. No matter the student’s age or level of ability, everyone walks away with a sense of accomplishment and empowerment. Be prepared to SHINE! The Power Yoga flow will torch calories and cleanse your body, strengthen your muscles, and clear your mind. The dynamic mix of athleticism and spirit that is cultivated in each class will challenge you to step out of your comfort zone, unlock your hidden potential and live your own extraordinary life.
