Come in with a clean body (no lotions, oils, or scented products)

Bring a water bottle (we don't sell water but Easthampton has the  best tap water around)

You may borrow one of our mats if you need to, but you might want to bring your own. 

Bring a towel to put near your mat in case you sweat.

You are welcome to wear layered clothing, but be prepared to peel down to an ultra lightweight bottom layer. Tank-top and shorts are ideal.  

Take some time to choose your "spot." The area closest to the door is warm, the far end is hot. You are in control. There are marks on the floor. These are "spots" for students to place their mat. Choose any one. 

There IS a shower available. Please limit showers to 2 minutes. Again, bring your own towel.


We are a barefoot studio. For everyone's safety No Glass bottles.

Must be 13 or older to participate in group classes (let us know if there's interest in family yoga or preteen yoga)

Come with a clean body, clean clothes and a clean towel. (we aim to be fragrance free)

Turn off your cell phone. 

No shoes inside the studio.

Place all personal belongings (except mat, towel, and water bottle) in the back room.

Be on your mat and ready to begin at the class start time. 

Close doors promptly behind you, don't hold doors open.

Rest in class by lying down, sitting or kneeling on your mat.

No talking during class.


I'm a beginner, can I come to the studio? Yes of course! You are welcome in ANY class. 

Do you have any special deals for new students? Yes, indeed! New students can purchase a full month of classes for only $60 or Six classes for only $66! Save time, purchase online.

Why do you ask me to put my mat in a particular place on the floor?  You won't have to ask whether you're "too close" and invading someone else's space; You won't have to ask "Is it ok if I put my mat here?"; You won't end up facing the wrong way; You will be able to check your alignnment throughout the class. In other words, everything will go smoothly for you and your focus will be greatly enhanced.

What should I wear? Please wear stretchy clothes with elastic waist. Clothes that show your outline are ideal.

Our Cell Phone Policy

No phone should ring inside the studio or office. If you must be on call:

  1. Set the phone to vibrate and keep it next to you
