Helpful info for first-timers:


  • Bring your own yoga mat and water bottle

  • It also helpful, but optional, to bring 2 foam yoga blocks.

  • Arrive about 10-15 min early

  • Please do not wear fragrances or scented lotions in the studio.

  • Our studio is kept at a comfortable temperature. We do not practice "hot yoga".

  • If doing a class from your home, try to find a quiet space free of distractions.

  • Wear clothing that is comfortable to move in.

  • For yoga, it's best to have a yoga mat to practice on. We are not currently loaning any props so you will need to bring your own. A mat is not necessary for tai chi or chi gong.

  • Yoga is typically done barefoot.

  • It's ideal to practice yoga on an empty stomach (at least 1 hour after a meal).

  • Always remember to be observant to and respectful of your own bodies limits. Never stay in a pose that does not feel right for your body.

  • For virtual classes, you should receive an email containing the link to join the class 30minutes before the start of the class. If you do not, or if you have ANY other questions, please call us at 916-944-8505. We are always happy to help. For more info on virtual classes, click here.
