FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: HOW IS YOGA108 DIFFERENT THAN OTHER STUDIOS?
A: At Yoga108, we don’t slack on physicality OR philosophy. All of our teachers have serious backgrounds in yoga asana (movement/technique), and we are connected to a lineage of serious yoga scholars. However, students are free to come and take what they need, whether that’s physical, spiritual, or both.
Q: I'VE NEVER DONE YOGA BEFORE. CAN I TAKE A CLASS? WHAT CLASS WOULD YOU RECOMMEND I TAKE?
A: Of course and no problem! We are here to make your experience inviting and help you learn yoga and we would love to have you begin your yoga practice with us! If you're new to yoga, we recommend starting with Level 1, Slow Flow Vinyasa, or Yin class! Level 1 is the most challenging of these 3 options, but it still moves at a slower pace than our other classes.
If you have questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we would be happy to answer your questions and help!
Please arrive at the studio 15 minutes prior to class, and we will get you familiar with the space, practice, and your instructor. If you have a yoga mat and towel, bring them. If not, don’t worry, you can rent both at the studio.
Q: WHERE DO I PARK?
A: We recommend parking in Downtown Long Beach Parking Lot C. This lot is located on 3rd street, slightly past the studio, on the right hand side of the street. This lot offers 2 hours free parking! There is also metered street parking available around the studio.
Q: CAN I BE LATE TO CLASS?
A: As a way of respecting all students and teachers, we offer a 3 minute grace period, after which you will need to take the next class.
Q: CAN I HAVE MY PHONE WITH ME DURING CLASS?
A: In order to help all students find their zen in class, we ask that all students keep their phones on silent, in a cubby (not at your mat). If you have a special circumstance and need your phone with you, please let the teacher know before class.
Q: WHY ARE THE CLASSES HEATED, WHAT KIND OF HEAT?
A: Our classes are heated with special radiant (infrared) heat. Often studios have systems that heat up the air, so the yoga classroom feels sweltering and humid. In contrast, radiant heat warms up objects and feels more like the gentle sun radiating on you as you practice. Radiant heat improves circulation, relaxes muscles/provides pain relief and helps the body flush out toxins.
Q: I DON'T LIKE THE HEAT, WHAT SHOULD I DO?
A: We get it. Take our non-heated classes, at room temperature (about 78 degrees). On our schedule, these classes will NOT have a + sign.
