Yoga FAQs

New to Yoga? Here’s what you should know:

What should I wear?
Comfortable non-restrictive clothing is recommended (t-shirt & sweatpants). Please refrain from wearing any fragrance; someone in the class may be allergic. The classrooms are carpeted, so to help keep them clean we ask you to take off your shoes before going into class.

Do I need a yoga mat?
If you are taking a Yoga 1 level class or the beginning level drop-in, you won’t need a yoga mat. For the higher levels, yoga mats are needed — they help to keep your feet from slipping. Mats are available at Target & Wegman’s, and we also sell premium mats right in our bookstore.

What is the typical class size?
We take as many students in our classes as will allow each student to have sufficient stretching and relaxation space. Average class size is 10-15.

Are there scholarships available?
Partial scholarships based on financial need are available. You can pick up an application for financial assistance in our office.
