Before You Come

Online Registration
Our mobile app allows you to purchase classes and sign up for events, manage your account and see teacher substitutions and holiday schedules. You can make purchases, see all of your transactions, print receipts, check your class attendance and change any account information securely from your home computer! The system will recognize you when you use the exact name and email address you gave us when you filled out your new student waiver form.

Parental Consent
Students must be over the age of 12 in order to practice in our group classes. If you are between 12 and 17 years old, please have a parent or adult guardian accompany you to your first class so that they can sign your waiver and give consent for you to join in the classes.

What to Bring
We rent premium yoga mats (the kind that get stickier the more you sweat) and cycle shoes. Organic skincare is provided in our well-appointed shower rooms. We also sell water, coconut water, mats, yoga towels and the best yoga clothing in the world, as well as after-yoga outfits to change into, if you forget yours. This means you can come to us in the most disheveled and unprepared state and we will return you to the world serene, happy and ready for anything. Or you can bring all these things yourself. Either way, you will need them.

Be on Time
Please allow yourself plenty of time to get here. If you arrive even a minute past start time, you will have to wait for the next class, which could be a drag.

Payments

Intro Special
3 weeks for $49 is available to purchase with your first class only. Attend our Orientation anytime during your introductory 3 weeks and get an additional 1 week for FREE!

Memberships
Memberships are a great way to lower your per class cost. If you want to come more than 6 times per month, this option is for you. You must sign up in person at the studio and a Visa/MC are required for all monthly memberships. Your card continues to be billed monthly (a minimum of 6 full payments is required) until you cancel by email. We love our members so you will receive generous discounts and privileges throughout the year.

Water Accounts
We do not charge credit cards for a $2 water or a mat or towel rental. You may use cash or place $20 at a time on your "water account" that you may use for water, towels or a mat whenever you visit the studio.

You're Here

Parking
During peak times (weeknights and Saturday morning), please allow an extra 5-8 minutes to find parking. Please park in the underground garage, or in our overflow lot across the street on the North East corner of Shannon Rd. and Los Gatos Blvd. If these lots are full please find parking on the street.

The upper lot parking spaces belong to our neighbors- do not park there.  If you disregard the signage, they’ll have every right to tow your car.  The garage on site and the parking lot in front of Artisan Wine are both reserved exclusively for you. Thank you so much for taking this to heart and helping us be good neighbors!

Please do not park in any 30 minute parking spaces if you are here to take class- all of our classes are longer than that.

 

Keychain Barcode
Your barcode speeds you through the class check in process. Please tell the front desk which class you are attending before scanning your card. Wait until it beeps and they confirm you're set, and which room your class will be in.

Changing
Please use the shower rooms to change, not restrooms or boutique changing room.

 

 

How to Yoga

Grab all the props you may need before class starts. Please put a towel over blankets and bolsters.

Be aware of students coming in after you who need a spot and be prepared to shift your mat a little bit to make the space more balanced for everybody. For peak classes, we may need to form an extra row. Stagger wisely, aware of how it affects everyone behind, in front, and to the side of you.

Please clean up the floor around your mat before leaving.

Do not leave early. If you must, please practice by the doors and wait until a pose where students cannot see you go.

All classes (except for Hot 26), end together with a savasana (final resting pose) guided by the instructor. Please do not leave during Savasana

Some Tips From Our Existing Students

Flow classes:
"No beginners in Power! Try YogaSource Flow or Gentle first and once you have the technique down, come try it. We have the best classes in the Bay Area!"

"Front row is the warmest spot in the room, by the doors and windows is the coolest."

[Before our energetic flow classes]... "students tend to chat. If you want to lie peacefully, no one will bug you or you can join the conversation and make friends."

"Prepare to sweat! Either use a mat that gets grippier with sweat or place a Yogitoes towel over your mat so you're not slipping and sliding."

Gentle classes:
Please be patient and wait outside as our cleaners prepare the room for you. 

If people are already in the practice space, please respect the meditative environment.

While we never heat our Gentle, Yin or Restorative classes, if there are many people in the room, the temperature will naturally increase. The cool spots in the room are by the windows and doors. A good practice is to wear layers.

If balancing is a challenge, find a wall for support.

Hot 26 classes:
"Give it at least 5 classes - the heat will become easier and easier."

Some students swear by freezing water before coming. Drink before and bring electrolytes.

"Front row is the warmest spot in the room, by the doors and windows is the coolest."

After Class

Ask your teacher
All our teachers love to help out. Anything bug you, not sure if you're doing a transition right, want to learn how to take a pose further... go up to your teacher after class and ask.

Hydrate!
Replenish water and electrolytes!

Do Not Be a Stinky Yogi
Please do not forget your sweaty clothes in a plastic bag in the back of your car for days and days. No matter what fabric technology, you must hang or lay them flat to dry or wash them immediately. If you notice a smell even after washing them, leave them in the sun for a day and that may help get rid of it.

 

Deepen You Practice

Privates
Private sessions are an invaluable way to learn how you should approach each pose best suited for your body. Whether you are healing an injury, a beginner wanting to learn more, or an advanced practitioner, you will dramatically improve your alignment and awareness, bringing greater strength, flexibility and well being to your practice. Please call the front desk to schedule.

Workshops
We bring in well-known and highly respected presenters from around the world as well as from right here in our own back yard to focus on specific aspects of the practice. These workshops are an additional fee and are not included in the regular group class packages or memberships. You can view and sign up online.

Bodywork
We are serious about taking care of your body and know the best massage and physical therapists, sports docs and healers around. Just ask the front desk.

How to Be a Really Good Yogi
  1. Show up on time. Remove your shoes and enter the practice space in a way that honors the existing energy. Delicately lay your mat down giving the person to your left and right enough room to enter and exit their mat without needing to walk on yours. Grab whatever props you may need and arrange them near your mat leaving room for other students to do the same. 
  2. Stay through final savasana. If you must leave early set up by the door, inform the instructor when possible, and quietly gather up your belongings making the quietest most unassuming exit of your life. 
  3. Be that kind soul that offers to adjust their mat to make space for that last student standing around looking for a spot. 
  4. Wash your yoga clothes after each wear or at least air dry them if they won't make it to the washer for a few days. 
  5. Always wear enough clothing to cover the essentials. 
  6. If you are sick please stay home and get better. 
  7. Turn your phone off and decide that whatever happens during class you will deal with once it is over. 
  8.  Stay with the poses being offered by the instructor, modify them if needed, and keep the practice healthy for your body. Downlevel when you feel overwhelmed and try a variation of the pose if you are feeling curious! Inquire with the instructor before or after class if you have any questions or need guidance.
