Frequently Asked Yoga Questions:

  1. What can yoga do for me?
    A lot of us look to yoga for the physical benefits such as increased flexibility and strength, weight-loss, improved balance and better sleep. Another reason many individuals practice yoga is to reduce our stress and add balance back into our lives. Yoga can do all the above and more, but just like anything else, you have to practice.
  2. I’m not flexible, can I still practice yoga?
    Yes! Yoga isn’t about being flexible; although it can help to increase your range of motion when you have a consistent practice. In addition, yoga is a great complement to activities that tend to limit or decrease our flexibility, such as running and strength training.
  3. How often should I practice yoga?
    While a daily practice is ideal, a varied practice of at least 2-3 classes a week can benefit you greatly. A great compliment to yoga is our group exercise classes, check out what we offer
  4. What should I wear to yoga class?
    Please come in comfortable, breathable clothing in which you can easily move your body and sweat.
  5. What should I bring to yoga class?
    All you need is your yoga mat, towel and water, that’s it! If you forget or don’t have these items, don’t worry, we have them in the studio for you to rent or purchase.
  6. I have some injuries, (back, neck, knees etc). Can I still practice yoga?
    After speaking with your medical provider to make sure it is safe for you to begin a yoga practice, yoga can help you stretch the injured muscles and tissues and strengthen the supportive structures around them. Please make sure that you let the studio and your yoga teacher know about these specific injuries.
  7. Do you have any new student specials?
    Yes! Any new student can come sign up for our 2 Weeks Free special. Please see our PRICING page for more details. Sign up for 2 weeks free.
  8. What class should I start with?
    We recommend starting with our customized class, LUX Fundamentals, even if you are currently practicing yoga. This class is designed for our staff to learn about your needs and help you choose classes and get the most out of your time on your mat.
  9. How early should I arrive for class?
    Please arrive 15 minutes early for your first class so we can welcome you and help you get comfortable in the studio. Check in at the front desk and store your belongings in the locker room or in the cubbies outside the studio.
  10. What is “yoga etiquette”?
    Yoga etiquette can be described as the universal rules of all yoga studios. We encourage a community atmosphere at the studio, so feel free to chat outside of the practice room.
  11. What is Savasana?
    At the end of class we will finish with savasana, or “corpse pose”. This pose is just as important to your practice as the rest of the class. Savasana allows your body to integrate the practice you just completed and help you release any final tension in your body and mind.
