Helpful info for first-timers:

  • Online registration closes 30min before the start of class, but if you need to sign up after that, just call us.

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

  • Make sure you have a clear view of the device you are using to view the class.

  • Wear clothing that is comfortable to move in.

  • For yoga, it's best to have a yoga mat to practice on. We have mats and props for sale at the studio. 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.

  • 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.
