I’ve never tried yoga. Can I come to any class?
All of our classes are open level (unless marked otherwise on the schedule), and beginners are welcome! However, you may feel more comfortable starting with our Gentle Vinyasa Flow and Yoga Basics classes. Those classes will help you build a solid foundation that you can take into our other classes.
Is the studio open all of the time? When should I arrive?
The studio opens 15 minutes before each class. We wish we could be open all of the time, but that would be expensive! Please try to arrive at least 5 minutes before class starts. We lock the studio during class, so the door locks when class begins. We know that life gets in the way, and some days, it can be hard to get to class on time. We have to lock the door though because it can be very distracting to other clients when someone comes in late.
Do class cards expire?
No! Well, technically they expire 3 years from the date of purchase because mindbody won’t allow us to extend it any longer, but 3 years is a long time. We want you to use what you pay for and come when you can.
Do I need to wear barre socks to barre classes?
You can wear barre socks if you have them, as they will help you maintain a grip on the hardwood floor. However, you can also take class with bare feet if you don’t have barre socks. Barre socks (in all kinds of cute colors!) are available for purchase at the studio for $12. You can also find them on amazon.
I’m pregnant. Can I still practice yoga or take barre classes?
We encourage you to talk to your doctor before starting any exercise program. After getting the OK from your doctor, feel free to try any class and let the instructor know beforehand that you are pregnant. The instructor will let you know what modifications will work for you or what poses/exercises to avoid. We also have information sheets at the front desk that describe general pregnancy modifications for both yoga and barre classes. Please ask the front desk for a copy.
Do I need to bring a mat?
Nope! We’ve got that covered for you. You can use our mats, blocks, straps, bolsters, blocks, and foam rollers for free.
I’ve tried yoga before and I hated it. Should I try it again?
100% yes! The first time Callie tried yoga she HATED it, but she gave yoga a second try and loved her second class. Your experience is very dependent on your teacher! You might vibe with one teacher and not like the next, and that is OK. That’s why we recommend trying our new student special so you can check out all of our teachers and find your favorites.
Do I need to sign up in advance?
We suggest signing up on mindbody in advance so that your spot in class is guaranteed! For our Point Breeze studio, you MUST sign up in advance; otherwise you may not get a spot!
Does tuck have cancellation fees? Ugh, I hate cancellation fees.
Guys, we know life is unpredictable. It sucks when you have to stay late at work or your kid gets sick so you have to miss the class that you were looking forward to all day. We do not charge you a cancellation fee unless you cancel with 2 hours of the beginning of class AND there’s waitlist. To date, we have not charged any cancellation fees. We hope you make it to every class you sign up for but we don’t want to profit from those days where life gets in the way!
Do I have to wear certain clothes to yoga or barre?
Absolutely not. Wear what you are comfortable in. There’s no uniform here!
Is there parking?
You can almost always find free street parking around the Point Breeze location. The West Philly studio is attached to an underground paid parking lot. There are also metered spots nearby!
I want to buy a membership for both studios. Is that possible?
You can take classes at both studios if you purchase the “yoga and barre unlimited” option for the West Philly studio. You will have to email us at email@example.com if you want to use the Point Breeze studio so that we can appropriately credit your Point Breeze mindbody account!
