Are you new to yoga and pilates, or new to our studio?
Here are a few points to help you power ahead.
Remember to drink lots of water before and after class.
It’s quick and easy via the Upstate App (available on iOS or Android), or right here on our website. We highly recommend booking for our reformer and peak-time mat classes. Check out the booking cancellation policy for reformer pilates, outlined in our terms and conditions.
If you’re new, please arrive 10 minutes early. We’ll settle you in and show you around.
You can check in to reformer class and early mat classes (6am & 7am) 15 minutes before class. All other mat classes open 30 minutes before we begin.
We have no expectations – you don’t need to able to touch your toes or balance on one leg. The expert was once the beginner. We’ll guide you through your practice, encouraging you to rest when needed and teaching you to listen to your body.
Always bring a bottle of water. For our mat classes, you’ll also need a yoga mat and a large towel. Or, hire the set for $4. We’ve got you covered with bolsters and blocks for our yoga classes so you can get nice and comfy.
Let’s face it, you’re going to sweat in most of our classes. Go for comfortable and light clothing that moves with your body.
And walk out feeling fantastic. Our spacious change rooms with toilets, showers, hair dryers and other necessities are kitted out for pre and post-workout prep. There’s also lockers for your personal belongings.
We’ll ensure you practice safely. Your teacher will ask for injuries, or you can tell us when you arrive.
Some of our classes may even speed up the healing process. Ask your teacher prior to class about possible modifications during your yoga or mat pilates classes.
However, our group reformer classes are best suited to those without injuries. These are athletic, not rehabilitative, so they require you to be injury-free.
Yin Yoga and Hot Power Flow: yes with modifications please chat to your teacher before class
Bikram Yoga: yes during second and third trimester if you have a regular practice. Modifications are required, please contact us for more information
