We’re so glad you found us & hope to make your first class the experience you are craving! If you try new studios often you may know the in’s & out’s but if not... here’s a few tips and tricks to make you feel more at ease.
Practice kindness on the mat.
Be open to “breathing” as it’s the magic of yoga.
Make space for those around you...especially if someone comes in a tad late.
Grab the props you need & make sure to put them back in a tidy way.
We lock our doors but feel free to take anything of value into the studio.
Turn cell phones off & keep them away from your mat if bringing into the room unless it’s an emergency.
We strongly encourage showers every day that you practice. We strongly discourage heavy scents or perfumes.
Please don’t practice when sick!
If you need to leave before class is over just let us know.
Be mindful of the fine line between discomfort and pain. Some things may be uncomfortable but we trust you to bring yourself out of any shape in which you feel pain.
Class reservations are managed in your account online or through the Mindbody app. You can book & cancel at any time but our cancelation window closes 4-hours before class starts. Cancelling within the 4-hour window or not showing up for class results in losing that class or being charged a cancellation penalty (if you’re a member with us). Workshops, retreats, and trainings are non-refundable.
While we know the day you are running late is probably the day you most need yoga...we have to have a cut off. If you reserve a class we will wait three minutes to allow you to get in. Otherwise, our studio doors are locked for student & staff safety at the class start time.
What to expect
We are a creative vinyasa studio which means no two classes are alike. We find students come to yoga for a variety of reasons but -- getting stronger, getting more flexible, and managing stress are three common ones. If this sounds like you, we recommend Mindful Hot (stronger), Yin + Flow (flexible) and Yin + Restore (managing stress) as great starting points. We have two studio locations so check your bookings carefully : )
Our teachers generally do not move with the students - we focus our energy & attention on you and encourage you to find the postures in your own body (versus copying a teacher). Our studio strives to be non-competitive, super friendly and low key. We hope you find it as such!
What to wear
Ya don’t need the fancy yoga gear but...there are a few things worth investing in if you find you love the practice. We recommend leggings or slim-fit shorts & a form-fitting tank. As we spend a good bit of time in forward folds & downward dog, baggy shirts and shorts will work against you. Wanna upgrade your fashions? Dry-wick material is always a great investment.
While there are yoga socks & yoga sandals most students go barefoot. Please leave your street shoes out in the lobby!
What to bring
Yoga is a simple practice. To best equip your practice, bring a mat, non-glass water bottle and a hand towel until you get a feel for what you want & need.
There are a range of yoga mats available today and while we are super mindful of keeping yoga accessible, if you enjoy the practice we highly recommend investing in a good mat. It’s better for the environment to find a high quality mat because most last for years (or a lifetime) and it will make a HUGE impact to your practice.

Our East Atlanta studio is in the village footprint directly across from Argosy. We use our backdoor and parking in the lot behind our building is free. Doors open 15 minutes before class starts. If the door is locked - make sure you’re at the back door, check the time and then give us a knock! Doors will be locked once class starts and late entry is not permitted.
Our Summerhill studio is located at 77 Georgia Ave in the heart of Summerhill.
We are near GSU Stadium (old Turner Field).
Parking is free on street and in retail lots.
We encourage our students to use the large lot at Fraser & Georgia Ave which is one block diagonal to our studio since parking is ample.
