What you need to know before your first class:
Do I have to pre-register for classes? We encourage you to pre-register and save your space in class, however it is not mandatory and classes are on a first come/register, first serve basis. Please arrive 15 mins early before your first class.
What should I wear to class? Wear comfortable clothing that stretches when you move and allows teachers to see the alignment of your ankles, knees, hips and shoulders. Form fitting is best, but never let clothing prevent you from coming!
Do you have a yoga mat I can use? Yes, we have mats and props free for use.
What temperature is the studio we practice in? Classes are taught at room temperature, 75 degrees.
How do I log into my account and sign up for classes or services? Log into your account to register for classes, book a massage, buy passes or membership, or change/update your information. Go to the upper right corner of the home page of our website to log in, or download our app from the app store and use your same username and password.
What can I expect to experience at a Big River Yoga class? Alignment is emphasized to ensure safety and provide you with a solid foundation to deepen and enjoy your practice. Though at times class may be challenging, it should not be painful. If you feel sharp pain or feel unstable, please reach out to your teacher immediately. Do not hesitate to ask us questions. We are here to safely guide and teach you.
