What if I’m late?

We understand that delays happen, however for the security of our clients and their  personal belonging we lock the studio door once class begins.

Is this HOT Yoga? No. Hot Yoga is typically practiced in a 100° room. Mantra Yoga is a warm studio. All of our classes are gently warmed for comfort up to 75°- 80°. In the summer months we cool the studio to 85°. You will sweat: not because the room is hot but rather due to your natural internal fire.
What should I wear? Wear comfortable clothing that allows you to move freely. Breathable, moisture wicking material is most comfortable. Avoid clothing that is too loose or too tight.
It’s best to bring your own yoga mat, but if you don’t have one you can borrow one of ours.

You may bring your own sports bottle and fill it at our water filtration system. We do not sell water in plastic bottles, however if you require a bottle we have glass water bottles for sale in studio.
