What should I wear?
We recommend that you wear soft, comfortable, ideally close-fitting clothing. The studio is heated in winter, but you’re welcome to bring a sweater and a pair of socks for the relaxation postures at the end of the class, as well as for calmer classes such as Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra or meditation.
Yoga Pop is an ideal space for sharing and rejuvenating your body and mind. All that matters is that you feel comfortable!
Are there changing rooms?
Our yoga studio has a men’s changing room and a women’s changing room, where you can leave your personal belongings. During classes, the doors to the changing rooms are locked, so you can rest assured that your belongings will be safe while you take your class.
Do I need to arrive early before my class starts?
Classes start at the time specified on the schedule. We recommend that you arrive 10 minutes before the class begins, so you can get changed and settle in.
How many spots are available for each class?
Classes can accommodate up to 16-18 people, depending on which class you’re taking. You’ll find the number of spots available for each class in our schedule.
I am pregnant: what type of yoga can I practice?
If you used to practice yoga before getting pregnant, you can join our classes and just tell the teacher about your situation, so they can suggest alternative options for certain postures.
If you didn’t practice any physical activity and/or yoga before becoming pregnant, we advise you to wait until the 3rd month of pregnancy before attending hatha yoga, yin yoga or yoga nidra classes.
