FAQ’S

I’m a newbie, where do I start? 2018-04-18T13:55:53+00:00

Welcome to YFTH💜

Check out our New Student Intro Offer and try out as many classes as you would like in 30 days. Get familiar with our Class Descriptions and pick a fit for you, maybe gentle one day or power it up on another. And if you need some direction, don’t hesitate to reach out to one of us.

What can I expect? 2018-03-20T15:57:40+00:00

You can expect a soothing and clean space with authentic teachers who are knowledgeable, kind and supportive. Plan to arrive 10-15 minutes before your class, use a cubby for your personals, check in at reception, then drop your mat and maybe meet a new friend beside you! Make yourself at home, linger with our community after class and enjoy a beverage.

OK if I can’t touch my toes? 2018-03-20T15:58:48+00:00

Absolutely! Flexibility does not come easy for many of us. Be patient with yourself and know that a regular practice will get you closer and closer to those toes.

I have some physical limitations / injuries, can I practice yoga? 2018-03-20T15:59:14+00:00

Most definitely! Yoga can help your body heal from a range of injuries. By using deep breathing, accepting the concept that injury can heal and being willing to experiment to find out what works. Let your teachers know what you’re working with and have your doctor’s approval. All classes will offer modifications as needed.

I’m pregnant, can I practice? 2018-03-20T16:07:12+00:00

Yessss, with your doctor’s approval! There are many benefits in practicing prenatal yoga…improve your sleep, reduce stress and anxiety, ease nausea and back pain, increase strength, flexibility and endurance needed for childbirth. And learn to use the breath to “still the mind” and help relax the body during delivery.

I just want a workout, is yoga it? 2018-03-20T16:10:37+00:00

If you’re looking for an athletic approach to yoga, you will surely find it in our Power Vinyasa, Yoga Sculpt and Forrest classes. You will build strength, stamina, flexibility and tone your core and body. These powerful classes give your metabolism a boost, burn calories, make you focused and considerably reduce stress and tension.

What should I wear and bring to class? 2018-03-20T16:11:31+00:00

Bring your authentic self, an open mind and a fun spirit….

Wear comfortable clothing that you are able to move and stretch in. Avoid baggy tees that will ride up when you forward fold. You will be barefoot in most of our classes to allow you to grip your mat. We encourage you to bring your own mat or you may borrow one of ours. We supply any props needed. If you’re working it out in Power, Sculpt or Forrest bring some hydration and a towel.

How often should I practice? 2018-03-20T16:12:18+00:00

The more, the merrier…we would love to see you every day but appreciate that many days are chock-full or your body just needs it’s down time. You will experience many benefits of yoga by practicing 2-3 times a week and if your schedule only allows you one class in a week, do it for YOU and use the benefits from yoga in each of your days… breathing intentionally with energy and vitality

Do I need to sign up ahead of time? 2018-04-18T13:53:22+00:00

Although pre-registering for classes ahead of time is not required, it is recommended to reserve your spot in advance. It also saves you time and gets you on your mat that much faster! Classes can be booked in advance through our website or the Mindbody App.

What happens if I’m running late or need to leave early? 2018-03-20T16:13:46+00:00

Please try to arrive early for class to respect your fellow students, but if you are running late, enter quietly, log in at the desk and wait for the teacher to signal you to join the class. If you know you need to leave class early for some reason, let your teacher know in advance. If during class, you need to use the restroom, get some water or a break…do what you need “quietly” and rejoin us.

What is your class cancellation policy? 2018-03-20T16:14:21+00:00

We understand life gets busy and plans change…if you are registered for a class but decide that you can not make practice, please cancel your reservation through your online account or call the studio at 860-216-6473. Cancel at least an hour before class time to allow another student the opportunity to take your place. This is greatly appreciated for those class times that fill up.

OK if I eat before class? 2018-03-20T16:51:32+00:00

Be sure to be fueled and hydrated, but best to save the meal for after class or have it several hours before class.

What’s up with the heat? 2018-03-20T16:51:58+00:00

Classes that are heated from 76-84 increase your pulse rate and metabolism, allowing your blood vessels to become more flexible and making your bod burn calories! Like other yoga classes, you will build muscle tone but will also improve the lymphatic system and flush out toxins.

What if I lose it in class (cry, laugh, get angry or shake) or I’m sad hours after class? 2018-03-20T16:53:49+00:00

This is perfectly normal and actually a real great thing…yoga was designed so that emotional breakthroughs can occur safely. Anytime you work with the body, you are also working with the mind and the energy system-which is the bridge between body and mind. And since that means working with emotions, emotional breakthroughs can be seen as markers to progress in your personal growth. So throw up your arms & say yayyy!

Where should I park? 2018-03-20T16:54:14+00:00

We are located in the Brace Rd. Parking lot and our entrance is at the back of the building. So most convenient is this parking lot. You can also park, free of charge, on the side streets off of Brace Rd.

What is your workshop/series cancellation policy? 2018-03-20T16:54:42+00:00

Payments for workshops and class series are non-refundable. If cancellation is necessary, please do so 72 hours before the workshop or series begins, this will result in a credit with Yoga From The Heart.
