Should I sign up ahead of time?
Absolutely, we strongly recommend it! Booking in advance secures your spot in the class. Plus, it's a win-win – you get to join the session you want, and it helps us and our teachers plan effectively, keeping everything running smoothly. Don’t forget: you've got up to one hour before the class to cancel if needed, so there's flexibility built in.
Can I show up late?
Unfortunately, no. To ensure everyone enjoys a seamless session, we kindly ask that you arrive on time for class. Late entries can shake up the vibe and cause a little mat shuffle dance. We truly appreciate your understanding and cooperation in making each class a wonderful experience for all.
What’s the cancellation or no-show policy?
Life can be unpredictable, and we totally get it! You've got a one-hour window before the class to cancel your reservation. So, whether last-minute meetings pop up or unexpected plans arise, you can adjust your schedule hassle-free.
Life happens, and we're here to support you through it all. However, if circumstances keep you from joining the class and you're unable to cancel within that one-hour window, a $15 charge will be applied to your account.
Where do I park?
Parking is free on the many surrounding streets near the studio. Kindly keep an eye out for any street signs or permit regulations. As a friendly reminder, we're nestled in a neighborhood, so let's show some neighborly love by not parking in the Frame Shop lot & making sure no driveways are blocked.
What kind of payments do you accept?
We are a cash-free studio & only accept debit/credit card purchases or contactless payments.
When should I arrive?
Please arrive 10-15 minutes early for your first visit. Save time by signing in online and securing your spot. Our doors open 15 minutes before class—please be mindful of fellow yogis practicing.
What happens if I miss a class that I signed up for?
We understand that life can be unpredictable, but we kindly ask that you respect our class capacity and fellow students. If you're unable to attend a class you've signed up for, please cancel your reservations up to one hour before. We've introduced a $15 no-show fee to discourage multiple sign-ups without attendance, ensuring that everyone has a chance to practice with us.
How do I sign up for class?
Signing up for class is quick and simple and makes showing up to practice an easy, seamless process. You can check the schedule online or via our app to register or purchase any classes online beforehand. Many of our classes fill up, so we strongly encourage you to sign up beforehand.
What if a class is full?
If a class is full, we add a waitlist where spots may become available if there are no-show students, but we cannot make any guarantees. You will get email confirmation if you get into class!
What type of class should I attend?
Whatever you are comfortable with! We welcome people of all various levels into our studio. You will find descriptions of all of our classes on our website. If you are new to yoga asana, we recommend starting with one of our Mellow Flow offerings along with Yin or Long Slow Deep.
Do you offer childcare? Can I bring my kid to class with me?
We do not offer childcare services at Commune Yoga, and we are unable to allow unsupervised minors to wait in the lobby during classes. Please note that participants must be at least 16 years old to join our classes.
I have an injury; can I still practice yoga?
It depends. What did your doctor, physical therapist, or healthcare provider say?
While we understand the desire to benefit from yoga during your recovery, we want to emphasize that we cannot guarantee that yoga will heal your specific injury. Many students have found yoga to be a valuable tool for rehabilitation, but the suitability of practice varies based on the nature and severity of the injury.
We strongly recommend consulting with your doctor, physical therapist, or bodyworker to determine whether yoga is appropriate for your condition. At Commune Yoga, we are here to support you, but we are not qualified to diagnose injuries or illnesses. Your healthcare provider's guidance and your own intuition should be your primary resources when working with an injury.
I’m pregnant, can I still come to class? Which one would be best for me?
That depends. What did your healthcare provider say?
At Commune Yoga, we prioritize the well-being of our expectant mothers and understand the importance of safe and suitable yoga practice during pregnancy. Our classes offer a warm and nurturing environment, making them generally suitable for pregnancy, even in the first trimester, when regulating body temperature is crucial.
While many healthcare providers recommend yoga during pregnancy, it's essential to consider your individual circumstances. If you had a regular yoga practice before pregnancy, you may find it enjoyable and beneficial to continue, with some modifications. However, if you are new to yoga, it might not be the best time to start with a vigorous vinyasa class.
Can I book a private or small group yoga session?
Of course! Working one-on-one is a great way to delve into the unique needs of your practice with a teacher. Please reach out to email@example.com for assistance.
What should I bring to class?
You should bring a yoga mat, wear comfortable attire that allows for easy movement and provides adequate coverage. Don't forget a reusable water bottle to stay hydrated throughout your practice, and bring a small towel or mat towel if you prefer. We provide mats for rent and offer blocks, bolsters and straps for classes that require them.
