We practice Baptiste Yoga™. Classes are 60 minutes unless otherwise noted on the schedule and the room is heated to 90 degrees (via Infrared Heat Panels at WVPY Albany). 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 and/or electrolytes throughout and know that rest poses are available to you at any time during the class.
Please sign in at front desk prior to setting your mat up.
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.
Be courteous to others by wearing clean, appropriate attire and refraining from the use of scented products while in the studio.
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 mat or towel? Please bring it to class. The studio rents hot yoga towels for $2 (if paid in cash we donate to the Africa Yoga Project).
We recommend purchasing your own mat and carry a variety of mats for you to choose from.
