Q: How do I begin?
A: Look at the online schedule and decide what class time and level will fit best. If you are new to Yoga, or even new to alignment yoga, we recommend you take a Basic class to start. Now, you can create an online account, purchase your first class and register through the online scheduler. Or, you can come to the studio 15-20 minutes prior to your first class and the desk staff can set you up. Either way, please make time to find parking and arrive at least 10 minutes prior to your first class. There is one New Student Waiver you will have to fill out upon arrival.
Q: Do I need to sign up online or make a reservation before class?
A: The online reservations are a great way to commit to coming to class. Lots of our classes fill up, so reserve your spot ahead of time through the MindBody App. If you sign up and are unable to attend, please email or call us at least 1 hour in advance to early cancel your registration. If you sign up and do not attend, your account will be charged for that class.
Q: How much is one class?
A: One class is $22. We offer a 10% discount for fully matriculated students and seniors over 65. After you take your first class, the desk staff will inform you about New student specials and your options with class cards.
Q: Is this Hot Yoga?
A: No. Our rooms are comfortably set between 70-80 degrees. This warm room encourages movement without the intensity. We move through the poses, building heat from the inside out.
Q: I am not Flexible. Can I still take Yoga?
A: Inflexibility or even over flexibility are exactly why you DO take yoga. Yoga Mechanics proudly welcomes everyBODY and has an excellent staff that will help you build both strength and flexibility. We are well trained to offer modifications and specific adjustments to help you in every pose, no matter what.
Q: What classes should I take?
A: If you are new to Yoga Mechanics, we recommend you start by taking a Basic class. Even if you have a 10 year practice of another style, the vocabulary and alignment cues will be new. Give yourself time to orient. If you are brand new to Yoga in general, the Basic class is also the best place to be. If you are recovering from an injury, pregnancy or just re-introducing movement into your life, start slow. Gentle and Restorative classes will be the nicest way to ease back in.

Q: What do I need to bring to my first class?
A: A mat & fully functional clothing, something you will be comfortable in and something slightly form fitting. If you don’t have a mat, we have ones for your use, free of charge.
Q: Can my guest use a class on my package?
A: We allow sharing of packages between families and spouses. For any exceptions, please email email@example.com.
Q: My card expired and I still had classes left can I still use them?
A: In order to sustain our yoga studio and to inspire a consistent yoga practice, we stand by our expiration dates. For your convenience, most cards have a 1 year expiration. For class card extensions or questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note, we do not offer refunds on class cards or unused classes. If you any questions or concerns on our policy, please contact us by email at email@example.com.
Q: How old does my child need to be to attend a regular class?
A: 16 & 17 year olds can attend regular classes with a guardian present. 18 and over can attend any class.
Q: How old does my child need to be to attend Family yoga?
A: Family Yoga is for children 6+ and their adults. Our Kids classes during the week are catered to specific age groups. Please see schedule for those details. If you have further questions please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: Where do I park?
A: We have street parking, as the lot is a tenant lot only. Allow enough time to acclimate yourself to the parking situations. If you have specific questions, please call that studio directly. Please check the street/ parking lot signs when parking.
Q: I am pregnant. Can I practice Yoga?
A: Congratulations and Yes! When you are pregnant, there are modifications that must be made in a normal yoga class. All of our teachers are trained and can help you with this. It is very important to quietly let your teacher know prior to the start of class so they can offer you the necessary adjustments. For more comprehensive care, we recommend a private session with our owner, Omni, and then easing into Yoga classes will be quite easy.
