We recommend wearing athletic clothing. No shoes are allowed in the Hot Yoga and Barre rooms.

What should I bring to class?

We recommend bringing water and/or electrolyte replacement to class. Also bring a large towel, yoga mat and hand towel to yoga classes. Mats are provided in barre classes. Yoga mats and yoga towels are available for rent at the front desk.

Where should I put my belongings?

Please place belongings in cubbies outside the yoga and or barre rooms. Please leave valuables in your car or at home.

If I’m not flexible, can I still do yoga?

ABSOLUTELY. Forget what you have seen on social media about yoga. On any given day, you will find varying degrees of flexibility, fitness and size in any yoga class. Your flexibility will improve with a consistent yoga practice. We expect you to come with much room to improve.

What should I do if I have an injury?

We recommend that all participants have full medical clearance before attending any class at VY&F. If you are starting a new exercise or fitness routine and you are injured or pregnant, please check with your primary health care provider for guidance. Please inform your instructor at the beginning of class if you have an injury.

What should I expect in my first yoga class?

Come with an open mind and expect that many of the yoga poses will be new to you. Many people are surprised by the temperature and humidity in the room. Most participants find that they get more used to the heat after 5-10 classes in a short period of time. You will start all classes with a warm-up. Our classes are based on cues, not demonstration. You will learn to understand the cues and can watch other participants for guidance.
