Frequently Asked Questions

I would like to come to my first class at Rise, can I just show up or do I need to sign up for class?  

We recommend signing up for class before hand.  You can do so on our schedule page here.  It will prompt you to purchase one of our pricing options.  We offer a New Member Special which is 2 Weeks of Unlimited Classes for $29.  If you have issues with the online scheduling system, feel free to just show up to class 15 minutes early and we can get you all set up!

I've never tried yoga before.  Which classes would be best for me to attend?
We absolutely love introducing people to yoga for the first time which is why we have options for beginners.  Our Rise Roots class provides a great foundation to begin your yoga practice.  Our Rise & Restore and Rise Candlelit classes are also open to beginners as they are slower moving and provide a nice introduction to a gentle approach to yoga.

What do I wear?
Wear comfortable clothes that will move with you.  For women, leggings and a loose tank top.  For men, athletic shorts or pants and a comfortable shirt or tank top.  No shoes, no socks!

What do I bring?
If you have your own yoga mat, great!  If not, we have mats and other props used during class for you to borrow.  And don't forget your h2o!

Should I practice yoga on an empty stomach?
It is recommended that you do not eat two hours before practicing yoga.

I have an injury or I am pregnant, can I still practice yoga?
Many people still come to yoga with certain minor injuries but learn to truly practice the art of listening to their own bodies and limits.  Make sure to tell your instructor if you have an injury or are pregnant.  They will give you modifications during practice when they see fit.  We are not doctors and you should always consult with a medical professional before starting any physical activity.

Are there age restrictions to attend class?
You must be at least 16 years old to attend class.  Anyone under the age of 18 years old will need their parent or guardian to sign our liability waiver and release form.  If you would like to attend one of our classes with your child who is under the age of 16 please contact the studio to discuss.

Do you offer kids and/or teen classes?
As of right now we do not hold any regularly scheduled kids classes but we do try to plan periodic workshops for the little ones!  Please check our Events page to see if there are any coming up!

Where do I park?
We have a big parking lot and also lots of thriving businesses that share the parking lot!  There should be parking right in front of the studio but if not you can park on the other side of the lot.  Please just refrain from parking in the reserved spots for our neighboring businesses.
