Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to pre-register for classes? We encourage you to pre-register and save your space in class, however it’s not required and classes are on a first come, first serve basis.

Do you offer reduced price classes or work/study? We do not offer work/study options, however we do offer a reduced price yoga membership for individuals that could use financial support to get to their mat.


Can I arrive late? Being late happens to all of us at times. No problem. Please be respectful when you do arrive and come in quietly.

Can I attend class If I am sick? Please stay home if you are sick and honor your body, fellow students, and teachers. Drink lots of liquids, get plenty of rest, and wash your hands frequently. Do a gentle practice on your own.

What is the chant Chris uses at the beginning of class? The Shanti Mantra is typically chanted at the beginning of class and may again be chanted at the end. The mantra establishes the yoga studio as a sacred space of peace and learning and invites peace to rain down upon those who practice yoga there.
