Studio Guidelines

  • At this time, masks, and vaccinations, are strongly encouraged but not required. And of course, anyone may wear a mask at any time to feel more comfortable. This is always subject to change.

  • Pre-registration for classes is strongly suggested. To ensure ample room for students to spread out, we will need to cap class attendance. Please register for class at least ONE HOUR prior to the start time of class. If you are no longer able to attend, please cancel your registration so we can open your spot to another student. Class will be cancelled if zero students are registered. Note: pre-registering for class does NOT hold the start time of class for you. Our studio door will lock at the start time of class for the safety of those in the studio; please arrive on time, preferably a few minutes before the start time of class.

  • If you have registered for a class that we needed to cancel, you will be refunded your original form of payment AND notified via email (so please make sure you have a correct email listed in your account!).

  • The studio doors will open 15 minutes prior to class time and will close 15 mins after class has ended. Doors are closed during class for safety.

  • State your name when you arrive and the teacher will sign you in OR sign yourself in on the fitDEGREE app when you arrive.

  • Please remove your shoes in the front reception area.

  • All levels are welcome to all classes. Do what you can, even if it's just to sit quietly and enjoy the energy in the room.

  • Classes are a prescribed sequence of breathing exercises and postures so we ask that you please arrive on time and remain for the full length of class.

  • If you have any major health concerns like a recent surgery, accident or injury, please let your teacher know before class. We can offer suggestions and variations to keep you safe while enjoying your practice!

  • Mat and towel rental is available: mats for $2 and towels for $3. The increased price is to help cover the cost of cleaning supplies for them. (This does not apply to premium memberships where mat & towel is included).

  • Blocks will be available at no cost but keep in mind these need to be cleaned as well so BYOB (Bring Your Own Block) is always encouraged!

  • Showers will be available but please use them quickly as the studio will still close 15 minutes after class to limit the amount of indoor interaction time as well as allow time to clean appropriately.

  • Please be mindful when passing by each other in the common areas and when setting up your mat in the yoga room to be careful not to overcrowd areas.

  • There are cubbies available in the changing room, but please leave your valuables at home. IAY is not responsible for any lost or stolen items. We ask that you do not bring personal belongings (yes, including cell phones!) into the yoga room.

  • We respectfully ask for silence in the yoga room so you & others can relax and meditate before and after class.

*Guidelines will be revisited and updated as needed.

First time? Welcome!

  • Our studio opens 15 minutes prior to the start time of class. We recommend arriving early to allow time to talk to the teacher if needed and get settled.

  • Hydrate; be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day.

  • It is recommended to practice on an empty stomach and best not to eat anything heavy 2 hours prior to class.

  • Wear something that you can move and sweat in. (For yin, consider layers!).
