What is power yoga?
Great question. We teach Power Vinyasa (fancy yoga word for “linking movement with breath”) in a heated 90 degree room. There are lots of styles out there, but we share power yoga because it’s sweaty, adaptable, life-changing and FUN!
I don't have a mat or towel or anything!
No worries! We rent/sell everything you need. We also have water, coconut water and local pressed juice for sale in studio, as well as a full boutique in case you forget a bra or shorts. (It happens a lot.)
What's the parking situation?
Our King St./Downtown studio has side street and metered parking. Our Mt. Pleasant studio has a big parking lot, in the Whole Foods Shopping Center.
How hot are the classes?
Our Power Vinyasa, Power Hour, and Core Vinyasa classes are heated at 90 degrees. Deep Stretch and workshops are taught at about 80 degrees. The heat will relax your muscles and allow you to take your practice to another level. Sweating is good for you!
Can beginners attend classes?
Hell yes! All of our classes are open to all levels and modifications will be given as needed. We do recommend that raw beginners show up early to talk to the teacher about form and alignment. But, like we said, you’re welcome to all of our classes.
What's Core Vinyasa like?
Hard, we’re not gonna lie. We deviate from our typical flow for more core integrated asanas and movement to help us strengthen such a vital area of the body. But beyond increasing your body's overall stability and core strength, we believe these classes help us connect to our center, leaving us feeling more like ourselves.
What should I bring to class?
Bring your mat, a towel and water. We do have these items for sale or rent should you need them. ($1 for mats, $4 for Yogitoes). All personal items can be left safely in cubbies outside the room, along with your shoes and cellphones. And gum.
Can I shower?
Please! :) Our downtown studio has two showers equipped with shampoo, conditioner and body wash as well as towels. Our Mt. Pleasant studio does not have showers, unfortunately.
How can I take my practice to the next level?
We're so glad you asked! The short answer: Keep coming. We recommend at least 2-3 days a week consistently, or even 4-5 days a week if you really want to see some big results. Our teachers are always available before or after class if you have questions, and we have workshops isolating individual skills of the practice to help you with your form and alignment. You can also schedule one-on-one private sessions with any of our teachers. Just email us for rates and scheduling.
