First Time Visitors Guide

What to wear

Comfortable clothes that allow you to move and stretch easily. Stay away from anything too baggy, as you will probably find yourself upside down at some point. Shoes and socks are not worn in class. Although there is no standard yoga attire, we do offer a wide selection of yoga-appropriate workout clothes in our boutique.

What to bring

Mats, towels, and water bottles can be rented or purchased at the studio or brought from your own home. Many people also bring a change of clothes, especially for classes at our Hot Studio. Please note that only the Hot Studio on 85th Street has shower facilities. All New York Yoga studios provide lockers to store your extra clothes and other items during class. (Please do not bring bags into the studio, as this takes away floor space from your fellow yogis.) You may rent or buy a combination lock in the studio or bring a lock from home.

What to expect

We strongly recommend that you arrive at least 15 minutes early so you have time to sign in, change, and get settled. On your first visit, plan to come a few minutes earlier to fill out a waiver and release, sign in, and pay for class. Web registrations, while not required, help to speed up the check-in process. In the event that a class fills to capacity, web registrations will be held until five minutes before class begins.
