Studio Etiquette

and frequently asked questions.

  • Before class begins, please give yourself the proper time for any business including but not limited to: changing, purchasing classes, setting up your mat, filling your water bottle, using the washroom. We begin class right on time...you won't want to miss it!

  • Bare feet only in the studio. There is a shoe rack outside and plenty of cubbies inside for your convenience. Please stow your shoes and belongings neatly.

  • Please sign in at front desk prior to setting your mat up.

  • Be courteous to others by wearing clean, appropriate attire and refraining from the use of scented products while in the studio.

  • Should you need to leave early, please do so before Savasana. Running late? Please travel safe and arrive when you can. We start and end class right on time. Should you need to leave early or arrive after class begins, please use care when quietly closing the door. 

  • Already have a hot yoga towel? Please bring it to class. The studio rents hot yoga towels for $2 (if this is your first time at our studio, the rental fee is waived). Once you decide that you love hot yoga, we recommend purchasing your own mat. We carry a variety of mats for you to choose from.

Q & A

q: what is baptiste yoga?

A: Our all levels classes are a blend of dynamic yet commonly practiced yoga poses linked by breath to create vinyasa (flow). The studio heated to 90 degrees. Connect breath with movement and tap into your power during this practice based on Baron Baptiste's “Journey into Power” sequence. 

q: is yoga for me?

A: Yes! Yoga is for anyone who chooses to practice it; no matter your age, sex, weight, height, or current physical abilities. It is not about being flexible enough to touch your toes, so come just as you are.

q: i’m new to yoga, what should i expect?

A: Welcome! We practice Power Vinyasa Yoga in the style of Baron Baptiste. Classes are generally 75 minutes unless otherwise noted on the schedule. The room is heated to 90 degrees. Though not sweltering upon arrival, you will heat up within the first few minutes of class. Wear moisture-wicking fabrics you can move freely in. During the practice you are invited to challenge yourself, AND also take care of yourself. Drink water throughout and know that rest poses are available to you at any time during the class.

q: how often should i practice yoga?

A: A regular yoga practice will alleviate stress and tension, build your energy levels, create strength and balance, and relieve aches and pains. A practice of 2-3 days per week, if consistent, will create transformation over time. For life-changing results practice 5-6 days per week.

q: is heated yoga hard?

A: You choose the intensity with which you work in each pose and throughout the practice. You can vary your practice by modifying the form and/or mechanics of the pose,the length of time in the pose, or the number of sets/repetition. The goal is to build and maintain physical and spiritual vitality, not push your body till it breaks. No pain/no gain is not part of our practice at WVPY.
