FAQ

When should I arrive?

Our door opens 15 minutes before each class starts and closes 10 minutes after class starts. When the door is closed, it is locked and class is in session.

Where should I park?

There is a lot for our building on the south side of Hunt Street, facing the long side of the building, as well as ample street parking.

After 5 p.m. and all day on weekends, you are welcome to park at the Durham Senior Center lot, directly across the street from our building.

Where should I rack my bike?

You’ll find bike racks on the east end of the building (to the right when you are facing the long side of the building, on Hunt).

What should I bring?

We have mats for you to borrow (and supplies to wipe them down after you are done; we also wipe them down ourselves once a week) and all the props you might need. Feel free to bring your own yoga mat, too.

What should I wear?

Something comfortable that lets you move around freely and that doesn’t bunch up around your face if you expect to get upside down. We have a bathroom and a changing space if you’re coming right from work. Please take your shoes off in the lobby; we have a rack for them to rest on and a bench for you to sit on to don your shoes when class is over.

Is your studio hot?

No. We offer room temperature yoga and, in classes where it’s appropriate (Flow Yoga, Intermediate Expansion, Advanced Practice), guide you to build internal heat. In Sanskrit, we call this internal heat tapas—it’s different from the Spanish meaning!

How should I register?

We love for you to sign up online, which saves both you and us time. If something happens and you don’t show up, we don’t charge you! Signing up online will make for a quick check-in, and will save your spot until 5 minutes before class. You can also walk in and buy classes in person!

Can I have a taste before buying a class pass?

Yes, locals get their first class free! We’ll take care of this at the front desk—just walk on in.

Should I eat before class?

Not too much! There are many fantastic local eateries in walking distance to enjoy after class.

Can I bring my kids?

Kids 13 and up are welcome in our adult classes. For younger kids, 10–12, please discuss with the teacher; if kid, teacher, and parent are on board and there’s an adult taking class with the child, they are welcome.

If I sign up online and can’t make it, what should I do?

If you’re near a computer (obviously, you are right now!), click Manage My Schedule (also in the left-hand menu on every page). You can cancel from there. If you find yourself away from the computer and can’t make it, don’t worry; when you don’t show up, your unused class reverts to your account.

Do you offer work-trade?

Yes, we do. We ask for a one-year minimum commitment and offer both desk and cleaning crew duties. Write us for details.

I’m a teacher. Are you hiring?

We have a big, wonderful staff in place already. When we do hire, we like to choose from among the folks who have been practicing at the studio regularly, as they understand the studio culture and student needs. We definitely extend our $12 student/teacher rate to yoga teachers! We also offer work-study options that give folks a good grounding in our studio procedures, which is a prerequisite for teaching here. Write us for details.
