This month we dedicated our newsletter space to answering some of your most frequently asked questions. We’ve reprinted the responses here in case you missed them! Got more questions? Post them in the comments or email us directly at info@TheYogaCentreOakPark.com. Thanks!
Q: “What is the Guest Policy of The Yoga Centre?”
A: Students are encouraged to bring guests to The Yoga Centre for a drop-in fee of $16. Any new student is eligible for our Buy 1, Get 2 special offer, which is good for one week. That’s 3 classes for the price of 1! PLUS, when your friend purchases the Buy 1, Get 2 Free pass, you get $5 in credit added to your account at The Yoga Centre as a thank you for the referral.
Q: What is proper yoga class etiquette?
A: Remove your shoes. At The Yoga Centre, we have a space for shoes at the front of the studio. There are wall hooks for your other belongings in the prop room at the back of the studio.
- Turn off or silence your cell phone.
- Arrive 5-10 minutes early to allow time to sign in and set up your space. Late arrivals are disruptive to the teacher and the other students.
- Stay for the final resting pose, it is an important part of the practice. If you must leave early, please announce this to the teacher before class begins.
- Clean up after yourself by putting all props back where you found them. At The Yoga Centre, we ask that participants wipe the mats down with provided natural cleaner before putting them back on the shelf.
Q: What classes are for beginners?
A: This is a question that plagues many a new student and can sometimes prevent them from coming in at all! Rest assured, The Yoga Centre has you covered. We have two ongoing classes that are specifically designated for beginning students. Aptly named Yoga for Beginners, this class meets on Sunday at 11am and Monday evening at 7:30p. If those class times don’t suit you, try one of our all levels classes (there are several, see our website for detail).
Q: what classes are included with membership?
A: The Yoga Centre is owned and operated by The Tennis and Fitness Centre (TFC). All members of TFC and monthly members at The Yoga Centre enjoy unlimited access to all of our ongoing weekly classes at The Yoga Centre. Which ones are ongoing and weekly? On our print schedule, they appear in a white box with bold black outline. On our MindBody site, they appear in this weekly schedule. The classes that are excluded from membership are specialty classes that are either offered in a series (for a certain number of weeks) or on an occasional or one-time basis. We refer to these classes as special events. Those can be found right here. Still not clear? Respond to this email and let me know. I’m happy to walk you through it.
