NEW TO YOGA?

No problem! Here's some helpful information to plan your class!

YOGA STUDIO TIPS

Am I ready for yoga?

YOU ARE READY! Come as you are, not as you should be. Our classes are accessible and adaptable for all bodies. We have professionally certified instructors & props to help you! 


What do I wear to yoga class & what should I bring to class? 

Wellness Traditions Yoga Studio is judgment free, and we encourage students to just be comfortable. We recommend stretchy/athletic pants or shorts, sports bras (for females), and a t-shirt or athletics type tops, as loose-fitting tops tend to fall or become uncomfortable in some yoga poses.

Please bring a yoga mat, water bottle, & an open mind! Wellness Traditions Yoga Studio offers props including blocks, blankets, bolsters, and straps to make yoga adaptable for you. 

How early should I arrive? 

Please arrive no more than 15 minutes prior to the class time. Connecting with new students is one of our favorite things about yoga! We are excited to meet you & hope to have time to chat with you before class, show you around the studio, and get you acquainted with the space.

Can I eat before yoga?

We recommend enjoying a fuel-filled snack, such as a banana smeared with nut butter about one hour before class to boost your energy. Also, water is your best friend & the key to staying mindful and hydrated during your practice. Plan ahead and increase your water intake at the start of the day you intend to attend a yoga class. 

Is there parking at Wellness Traditions Yoga Studio?

There is plenty of parking at the Wellness Traditions Yoga Studio and we are proud to offer this amenity to our students. Please enter through the Yoga door located on the north side of the building. 

What should I leave at the door?

Please leave your shoes at the door. The yoga lobby is a secure location for you to leave bags, jackets, and personal items. Smart watches are permitted in the yoga studio, however please mute your screen and set your device to do-not-disturb. Devices are a distraction to fellow students and instructors that hold a space for your yoga practice. 

I am experiencing an injury; can I still practice yoga? 

Yoga is a gentle practice and can help heal a variety of injuries and ailments. We advise it is always best to consult a doctor or physical therapist before practicing yoga. Please let your instructor know of any injuries so they can offer modifications, when applicable. As always listen to YOUR BODY; it will tell you when you have gone too far!  If yoga is not done with care or properly practiced injury is possible. 

Is yoga canceled because of bad weather?

Wellness Traditions Yoga Studio follows the local School Closing alerts. The morning Wellness Traditions Yoga classes are canceled if Willoughby-Eastlake Schools are closed due to weather. For evening classes, studio management will decide at least one (1) before class if it’s the safest option for students and instructors to commute to class. Please keep an eye on social media platforms for up-to-date information.
