FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT DO I WEAR TO A YOGA CLASS?

There is no specific yoga attire, but the clothing should allow you to move freely and comfortably.  Shoes and socks are not to be worn during class or in the studios at any time.

WHAT DO I BRING TO A YOGA CLASS?

Studio mats can be used at Haven but it is recommended that you bring your own mat, towel and water bottle.  Quality mats can be purchased at Haven as well.

DO I NEED TO MAKE A RESERVATION?

We do have online reservations for available classes, however we always have room for drop in. We ask that people reserve online so the instructor has an idea as to the numbers for the class and can prepare accordingly.  Please arrive 10-15 minutes prior to each class (unless otherwise noted).

I’M NOT FLEXIBLE, CAN I STILL DO YOGA?

Flexibility is one of the many benefits of a regular yoga practice, however, it is not a requirement for yoga.  Yoga offers an individual the ability to increase strength, flexibility and much more.

WHAT IF I CAN’T DO A POSE?

This is never a problem.  Our instructors are all certified in the classes they teach and are trained specifically to offer different variations of the poses so that everyone can benefit, and each time you come to class you will learn a bit more.

CAN I PRACTICE YOGA IF I’M PREGNANT?

Yes you can.  We offer classes specifically for pregnant women, however if the times don’t work for your schedule there may be some classes that might be suitable for you to take.  Please give us a call or email to inquire further as our staff are always eager to help.

I’M RECOVERING FROM AN INJURY, WILL YOGA HELP?

Yoga  can often help the body to recover.  Be sure to tell your teacher at the start of class about your injury and she/he can be sure that you get the most benefit for your recovery.  An injury can be a great learning experience.  At Haven we have a network of top professionals available to discuss concerns and precautions if necessary.  Make sure to take responsibility for your body and listen when it asks you to take a break or stop.
