FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:


I've never done yoga before, is this a good place for me?

Absolutely! Come to any class. Arrive 15-25 minutes early so we can show you a few things.

What should I wear?

Clean comfortable clothing like shorts and a t-shirt or tank top. For the hot classes, it is going to be pretty hot, so long pants and long sleeves are not recommended. When your skin is exposed to the air, your sweat can evaporate and cool your body – so don’t wipe the sweat. You might want to bring a change of clothes for after class too.

What else should I bring?

We rent mats, towels and sell water, but you are also welcome to bring your own. We ask that you use a mat and large towel for class. If you’d like to lock your stuff, you can bring your own lock or borrow one from us. In addition to a dry change of clothes, bring a bag for your wet clothes and anything you need to shower.

What if I am old, out of shape & inflexible?

You are never too old, too out of shape or too inflexible for this yoga. Know that everyone feels challenged by these practices. Everyone, no matter how experienced, is encouraged to take breaks as needed. As with any new, vigorous activity, check with your physician if you are concerned about any health issues, and please share your concerns with your teacher before class so we can support your practice.

Do you have showers?

Yes we have two showers, please bring your own shower items

Do you offer private lessons?

Yes, for both individuals and groups. Please email us describing your request, and we will respond promptly.

Anything else?

We open 25 – 30 minutes before each class and just 15min before the 6am class. We close the front door once class begins. Classes begin and end on time. Please remove your shoes and turn off or silence your cell phone when you arrive. Unless there is a special circumstance, we kindly request that you not bring your cell phone into class with you, both for peace of mind, and for the long-term health of your phone. However, if you are on call, or have small children at home, or another concern, please just let us know. Arrive hydrated, so drink plenty of water in the 24 hours prior to class. (Every body is different, but at least 2 liters is a good rule of thumb; more if you are also drinking coffee, tea, alcohol or other diuretics.) Eating or drinking a lot right before class is not recommended. Please do not apply perfume prior to practicing as some students may be sensitive or allergic. Please plan to remain in the yoga room for the entire class. Come prepared to have a fantastic time! If you have any other questions, please don’t hesitate to email us at expandyoga@gmail.com
