Every yoga studio is different so you may have tried yoga in the past or have a friend who told you what you can expect when you go take a yoga class, so we’re going to take this opportunity to let you know what you can expect when you make the decision to come and see what all of the excitement and buzz is about at Cape Ann Power Yoga. Here are five things you need to know.
- No membership needed
- No advanced sign up required
- All levels means all levels
- You will sweat
- Eat and drink!
No membership is needed to come and take class at the studio. You can walk in and pay $10 for one class, or pay in advance and put 5, 10, or 20 classes on your account. If you find that you really like practicing hot power yoga every day and the way it makes you feel you can purchase our unlimited month, six month, and year-long packages. Within 30 days of your first class with us you have the opportunity to buy our one-month unlimited package for just $100.
We happily accept credit cards and will never make you feel uncomfortable about running a $5 or $10 charge.
No advanced sign up is required to come and take class. You can walk right in off the street with just $10 and take class. For your first class you should aim to get to the studio 15 minutes before class starts so you can get the lay of the land, but don’t let traffic or the cut bridge discourage you from showing up a couple of minutes late. There is nothing worse than making moves and hustling to get to yoga class only to still show up late and be met with a scowl. We promise that will never happen to you at Cape Ann Power Yoga. We understand. If you are however prone to showing up at the last minute – it’s a great idea to sign up for class in advance so you can walk right in and unroll your mat.
All levels means ALL levels all the time. We’ve found that the best way for new students to learn is to jump right in and follow along. Our teachers are specially trained to keep an eye on new students while giving you the space to enjoy your experience. If you have any special concerns (injuries, experience level, pregnancy) please be sure to arrive 15 minutes early so that you can talk with the teacher and make a plan. We didn’t create this studio just for people who look like fitness models. We built it for everyday people who want to lose weight, shed stress, gain comfort in their bodies, and give themselves the chance to feel great. Jump right in – we so sincerely want to share this practice with you.
You will sweat. This is a heated practice and is deeply detoxifying. You will feel most comfortable in form-fitting, synthetic blend clothing. Wear what you would wear if you were going for a run on a hot summer day. Bring your mat and yogitoes so that you won’t slip and slide around on your sweat. If you don’t have a mat and yogitoes don’t even worry about it – we have them for rent for just $5. The mat provides cushioning between you and the floor and the yogitioes gives you a solid grip on your mat so you can focus on practicing yoga instead of sliding around your mat. Be sure to bring a big bottle of water and a good attitude and we’ll guide you the rest of the way.
Eat and drink! Please come to class well hydrated and well nourished. This is a vigorous practice and you and you need to be fueled. Especially as it gets colder you should actively remember to drink lots of water so that your system can operate and you can feel great. Depending on your digestion you may want a light snack or juice before practice and we always encourage our students to eat healthy, real food to replenish your system after practicing. We also recommend coffee or tea on your way to practice. There is not very much lying on the floor at our studio and a little caffeine can go a long way.
