How do I attend weekly classes and speciality workshops?

  1. Purchase the Rec Class Pass.
  2. Reserve your spot in a specific class (there will always be some drop-in spots but they are limited and not guaranteed).
  3. Go to class at the IMA, HUB, StartUp, or take a class virtually.

*All speciality workshops (live under special interest classes on our registration site, link below) require pre-registration before they start (you many not drop-in once they begin).
**Yoga Basics is pre-recorded and can be taken at anytime.

What if I registered for a class but need to cancel my class reservation?

  • Login to our registration site here
  • Click on your name in the upper right hand corner, then “Profile”.
  • Click on “Programs” on the left.
  • Click “cancel” next to the class you would like to cancel your reservation in.

What do I bring to class?

  • Yoga mat (a non-toxic yoga mat is ideal, if you don’t own one we sell them at Member Services).
  • Water bottle (to hydrate post practice).
  • Small washcloth to cover your eyes (will allow the brain to relax more during relaxation).
  • Light blanket/towel to cover your body or added layers (will increase rejuvenation during relaxation, especially if you cool quickly).

What should I wear?

  • Comfortable clothing that allow for ample movement and invite ease in a seated position.
  • Although yoga is practiced barefoot socks are handy for the end of practice in order to stay warm.

What if I am late?

  • If you are a few minutes late to class please wait outside until the class has completed their centering (as to not disturb this process of arriving) and is in the warm up phase of the practice.
  • If you are running over 15 minutes late it is best to skip class to ensure your body remains safe.

What if I need to leave early?

  • Set up your mat near the door (if there are other students already setup explain to them you need to leave early and ask them to shift over).
  • Depart the class BEFORE the teacher guides everyone into the final resting posture (as to not disturb others while they are integrating their practice).

How should I prepare? Anything else I should be mindful of?

  • Avoid eating a large meal about 1.5-2 hours before practice.
  • If you are working with a recent injury mention it to your instructor.
  • Please do not wear heavily scented colognes, perfumes, or lotions as they can be overwhelming and interfere with deep breathing during class.

Questions About Accessibility?
