Q: Do I need to pre-book before coming to class?

Heart Center is limited in capacity by design! Please pre-book via the MindBodyOnline app or website when possible. Drop-ins are welcome as space allows. If you are unable to make class, please remove yourself from the list well before we begin to make space for those on the waitlist. 

Q: I’ve never practiced Yoga (asana, pranayama, meditation, etc.) before and would be a complete beginner, which class do I take?

We welcome and encourage beginners to all of our classes. All Yoga classes are mixed-level and instruction is offered to suit both those who are new and the more experienced practitioner. Yoga is connection. Remain genuine to yourself and practice at your own pace. Heart guides offer breathing exercises, postures, and more with several modifications to keep the practice inclusive and equitable. Please note that we also offer Yin and restorative practices which are largely practiced on the floor, Adaptive Series for teens and adults with developmental differences and occasional pop-up chair Yoga classes.

Q: I am pregnant and would love to practice Yoga. 

A: Pregnant women are welcome to join any of our classes. If you do not already have a regular Yoga practice prior to pregnancy, we advise starting in your second trimester. Please inform your instructor as to where you are in your journey so that we may offer specific recommendations to support you and baby. Mamas are strong and empowered, please join us!
