Freqently answered questions

What if I've never done yoga before?

No prior experience is needed for any of our classes at Focus. However, experienced Yogis can attend any classes and our instructors can offer modifications. We also offer gentle classes for those looking to ease their way into yoga.

How hot is the hot room?

Our hot room is set around 105 degrees so be prepared to sweat!

Do you have unheated classes?

Yes! We offer gentle yoga, yin yoga, and trauma recovery yoga which are all unheated.

What if I have an injury?

Please inform your instructor prior to class regarding any illnesses, injuries, or concerns you may have. If you have a physical injury or limitation, the instructor will guide you throughout the class so you feel comfortable and do not further injure yourself. Always listen to your body.

What do I wear?

We suggest wearing something you feel comfortable sweating in. You will come out of class feeling as wet as if you were in a swimming pool. Wear as little or as much as you feel comfortable. We don’t notice what you are wearing. It’s more important to us that you are there and feel comfortable.

What do I bring?

We encourage you to bring a mat, towel, and water. We do have all of these items here for purchase or rent if you forget or need new equipment. A larger bath or beach towel may be handy to help you not slip on your mat during some postures. Again, do what you are comfortable with.

Mat and towel rentals are $1 each.

How do I prepare for a class?

Make sure you're well-hydrated and nourished BEFORE class. This means taking about two extra liters before class. You'll be glad you did.

What amenities do you have?

We have a locker room where you can change and store your belonging during class. We also have showers and soap if you are going somewhere or returning to work after class.

What's up with the heat?

Hot yoga is a form of yoga as exercise performed under hot and humid conditions, resulting in considerable sweating. Some hot yoga practices seek to replicate the heat and humidity of India, where yoga originated. It has been suggested that the heated environment of Yoga helps to prepare the body for movement and to "remove impurities"
