I've never done yoga before - where should I start?
Congratulations on having the strength and courage to start a yoga practice - you’ve come to the right place! We recommend starting with one of our Gentle Yoga classes or Vinyasa 1-2 classes, which give a more foundational explanation of the poses and breath work. Let the instructor know that this is your first class and whether you have any injuries or health issues so they can make the class as comfortable and enjoyable for you as possible.
This is my first class at Santa Cruz Yoga. What should I bring?
- Please arrive to the studio at least 10 minutes early. This gives us time to check you into our system, for you to sign a waiver, to show you the layout of our studio, and to answer any questions that you may have. Please bring: Yoga mat and towel in case you get sweaty (we have a wide array of yoga props for students to use, including yoga mats if you forget yours), water bottle (we have a filtered water system to keep you hydrated), comfortable clothing that is not too loose (it will float over your head in downward dog!) Yoga is done barefoot. We respectfully ask that your feet are clean.
I don’t have a yoga mat! Will you provide one for me?
Yes we will! We have yoga mats and other common yoga props for your usage and we do not charge a rental fee.
Do you have a Late Policy?
- In an effort to create a sacred space and for your safety, Santa Cruz Yoga has a 10-minute late policy. If you arrive within the first 10 minutes of class, please wait outside the door for the instructor to let you in. We understand that life happens (traffic, work, etc.). If you are over 10 minutes late we invite you to look at our schedule and to come back as soon as you can!
I left a personal item at the studio. Do you have a Lost and Found?
