FAQS

I’m brand new to yoga, what class should I take?  It depends a bit on your personality and on what you’re looking for.  If you want to just jump in and learn as you go, you’re welcome at any class on the schedule.  If you’re looking for a class with more detailed instruction and plenty of modifications offered you’ll be happiest at our Slow Flow classes.  If you’re wanting to try out Kundalini, the only way is to jump right in and give it a go!

What should I bring to class?  You don’t need much.  If you have a mat, bring it.  If not, we rent them. A towel can be nice, but isn’t necessary.  And perhaps a bit of water to drink before or after class.

Do you have mats for use?  Yes.

What sort of payment do you accept?  Cash and credit.

What if I’m running late to class?  It’s okay.  The doors stay open for about 10 minutes after class starts.  With that said, please do your best to be on time and please wait outside the studio until the class finishes their beginning meditation. Once the class opens their eyes and starts moving, then feel free to come in.

What if I have to leave early?  That’s okay.  Just let your instructor know, set up near the door and do your best to be quiet as you leave.

I’m injured, can I still come to class?  It depends a bit on the injury and on the class.  Your instructor can offer modifications for certain injuries, while other injuries simply need rest and TLC.  If you’re not sure what category you fall into, reach out to Jess personally: info@halaniyogastudio.com || (215) 275-5357

I’m not flexible at all - can I still do yoga?  Absolutely.  Flexibility is not a requirement for yoga, nor is it the essential purpose of yoga (though sometimes it can seem that way).  Combining conscious movement and deeper breath is going to have a positive effect on your nervous system, create space in your mind and help you feel more relaxed no matter how flexible you are or are not.  And with a bit of practice and consistency, flexibility will come.

I am a seasoned practitioner.  Is it okay if I create my own flow within class?  For sure.  Please just be aware of doing so without disrupting those practicing around you.

What if I don’t want to chant OM?  What if I don’t want to chant at all?  No problem.  There’s absolutely no pressure to chant along with your instructor.
