Surya Yoga FAQs
How hard are the classes? Well, what type of class are you looking for? An easy class, like Stretch and Chill? or a physically demanding class like Yoga Sculpt or Hot Vinyasa? We have a wide variety of classes to suit your needs (so know that you might pick the wrong class type for you and think yoga isn’t for you! That’s not the case, just try an easier or more difficult class next time). Click here to see the classes in order of easy to hard.
How much does yoga cost? Each pass is different and depends on where you want to start! Most new students start with the Beginner Series for $99. If you are not new to yoga, but want to try the studio, you can buy a new student pass (local residents only). We also offer class passes and memberships. Click here to see pricing.
When are the classes? We have morning, noon and evening classes 7 days/week. We also offer virtual live classes and a content library so you can take classes on your schedule. Coming into the studio is most often preferred because you get to meet the Surya Yoga community and be with other like-minded individuals. See the schedule here.
Do I need my own mat? You will need to bring your own mat, but if you don’t have one, you can borrow one the first time and then buy one at the studio. Surya Yoga offers multiple types and price points on mats, but all the mats are professional grade mats, so you know the quality is amazing and is backed by the company that makes them! The super thick, squishy gym mats are not for yoga. These types of super squishy mats can harm your wrists and make balancing poses difficult.
Do I need anything besides a mat? No, you can use all the props at the studio during your intro period. After your trial period is over, you will need to purchase your own 4 inch blocks and 10 foot strap (which are available for purchase at the studio and are typically less than Target).
What type of floor is in the studio? The studio floor is a 1″ foam Taekwondo floor, so it is firm, but soft at the same time. It will not harm your spine, knees or any joints when pressed on it.
What’s the temperature in the studio? Most classes are 77 degrees. There are a couple hot classes on the schedule and are labeled “Hot” at 90 degrees. This is not a “hot studio”. Hot classes are typically 95-106 degrees. I promise you will still sweat in 77 degrees (if that’s what you are looking for).
What if I’m not flexible? Well, that’s why you’re trying yoga, right? To get a little more flexible! Just remember it takes time and dedication to gain flexibility. Lots of time.
What if I have an injury? Each injury is different, but if you feel like yoga will help you or a doctor has suggested yoga, then go for it! The teachers at Surya Yoga can assist you with using props or modifying poses for your injury.
What should I wear? Wear comfortable clothes that will not ride up or fall down. You do not need to go to Lululemon and buy $100 yoga pants. Just some comfortable stretchy clothes will do. Think sweatpants, tank top, t-shirt, sweatshirt, longer shorts (short running shorts are very uncomfortable in yoga and don’t stretch).
Do I need special socks? Most students are barefoot. If you feel uncomfortable with bare feet, wear socks with grips on the bottom (like Pilates toe socks). If you wear regular socks they will slip too much and make yoga very difficult.
What if I have to miss a class? Any missed class can be made up with another yoga class on the schedule that fits your schedule. Please make sure to cancel 6 hours before class starts to keep your passes. If you have to cancel within the 6 hour window, you will lose one class. After 5 late cancel/no shows (within 6 hours of class starting), you will be charged $10/class. The late cancel/no show policy restarts each year on the anniverary of your first late cancel/no show. So you will get 5 late cancels/no shows/year.
Can I extend my pass beyond the expiration date? The intention of an expiration date is to get you into the studio multiple times/week. The ONLY extension provided past the expiration date is if you have Covid or have been exposed (7 day extension) or have a doctors note. The extension will be on a case-be-case basis.
Do I need to wear a mask? The studio will follow all local jurisdiction mask mandates. At the present time, no mask is required.
How many people are in each class? Student count varies/class, but most classes have about 5-9 students in them. Each students has 6 feet of space around them.
Can I get a refund if I don’t like yoga? No refunds. But, thank you for trying yoga!
