Welcome! We are so glad you’ve become a part of our community. Below are some of our most frequently-asked questions, but please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have additional questions that are not answered in our FAQs.
What are online classes like?
Online classes feel a lot like studio classes. We start our classes with a quick “check in” so that each person attending can say hi and have the chance to ask a question or share how they are feeling. After this short opening part of class, we settle in for class. Most of our online classes are also offered in person, so the teacher may be masked and teaching from the yoga studio.
What do I need to have with me for an online class?
For adult classes you will want to have a yoga mat or similar non-slip exercise mat. It’s also good to think about what kind of household items you could use as a yoga block (a big book, or a water bottle, or a few pillows stacked) so that you can make some stretches more accessible. For baby and kid classes, it’s great to have something that can be used as an instrument (think egg shaker-style) and a small stuffed animal that can be used as a breathing buddy.
Do I need to preregister for class?
Yes – please preregister for all classes whether they are in person or online.
Who are your teachers?
We have a wonderful team of teachers for our childbirth education + yoga classes. Meet them here.
Do I have to become a member?
Nope! We also have pay as you go options with either our single class rate or 10 class pass. However, we have seen that membership leads to more consistency and have gotten great feedback from students that they are doing more yoga now that they are members. Three cheers for bringing more health and wellness to our community!
Do I have to pay for myself and my partner for birth class?
One registration covers the pregnant person plus a partner if there is one for our childbirth education, newborn care, breastfeeding and sibling prep classes. And be sure to check out our family membership which takes 25% off all birth classes! Some insurance companies reimburse for birth classes (Blue Cross Blue Shield VT Better Beginnings Program is one example), so be sure to ask!
What is your mask and vaccination policy?
Masks are mandatory in our in-studio yoga/fitness classes and birth classes for all students over age 2. We require COVID vaccination for anyone over age 12 in our in person classes.
Why do you offer a BIPOC discount?
We recognize that the United States is built on centuries of racial injustice. We acknowledge the appropriation of land from indigenous peoples, the forced unpaid labor of black people, and the countless other historical injustices experienced by the racially marginalized. We acknowledge the racialized oppression that still rages around us.
As a part of our commitment to be actively anti-racist, we offer a need-blind discount on classes, memberships and childbirth education to anyone who self-identifies as BIPOC. We will never profile you, even for a discount. If you would like to accept this discount, please do so by adding the code “BIPOC” at checkout to receive 30% off.
