Options for Mats:
1. Bring your own each day
2. Purchase mat storage for $5 a month to keep your mat at the studio.
3. We offer a limited number of mats for rent at the studio. Bring your own, but if you forget once, rent a mat from us (with a towel) for $3 cash only. Mat Rental is included with your single drop-in yoga class purchase.
4. Purchase a mat. This will serve you energetically & hygienically. Not all yoga mats are created equal so we recommend that you purchase your yoga mat at our yoga centers. Ulti-mat Sticky Mats are perfect for slippery yoga and only $35. We also carry top of the line Manduka mats, they’ll change your life!
Drink lots of water in the 24 hour prior period to power yoga class. Dehydration will greatly affect your experience. The yoga class room is heated to 86 degrees. Bring water or purchase Water or Coconut water at the studio.
We recommend clothing that allows you to move freely and sweat. It greatly helps you and the yoga teacher if you don’t cover your ankles, knees, elbows and shoulders with baggy clothing. The visibility of these joints will deepen your experience.
Pilates Mat/Stick Classes:
We provide all pilates mats and props for our Pilates classes.
You are welcome to bring your own mat and/or towel.
You may practice barefoot or in socks, it is your preference.
Please wear comfortable athletic clothing you can move in. Baggy tops are not recommended as the Pilates instructor will need to see the body moving and working to give you the best Pilates experience possible.
Kickboxing and Thrive Cardio Sculpt:
Sneakers are required for cardio classes. You may choose to purchase weighted gloves at the studio for $25/pair to use in cardio classes to amplify your cardio experience as well.
Water and a towel is also highly recommended. We offer Thrive water & coconut water at the studio for $2.
We provide all props for our Barre classes. You may choose to purchase weighted gloves at the studio for $25/pair to use in Barre classes to amplify your Barre experience as well.
Barefoot or Grippy toe socks only. Grippy Toe Socks are also on sale at the studio for $15/pair.
Can I eat before class?
Practice on an empty stomach. We recommend that you wait at least 2-3 hours after eating to practice yoga. If absolutely necessary drink some juice or eat lightly.
Kickboxing and Cardio Classes are particularly challenging and a meal or snack is recommended a few hours prior to help conserve energy for the class.
We provide all blankets and props for these classes. Please be sure to bring your own mat or rent a mat at the studio for $3 cash.
Pre-Natal Yoga & Pre-natal Pilates:
We highly recommend that if you are planning to become pregnant, you begin or maintain your pre-natal Pilates/Yoga routine (with doctors approval of course). Not only does a regular pre-natal exercise routine help with a healthy and fit pregnancy, but previous experience with Pilates and movement is recommended by most doctors before starting a pre-natal Pilates or Yoga exercise regime during pregnancy.
We provide all props for pre-natal Pilates & Yoga. Your own yoga mat is recommended for pre-natal yoga.
Mommy & Me Yoga & Pilates Classes baby carriers are highly recommended as there are stairs and small space for strollers. Please bring all items needed to make your baby comfortable, blankets are provided. You will be asked to take any dirty diapers and trash with you when you leave.
