What is the cost per class? Do I have to “join” the studio or can I pay as I go?

Classes can be paid for per class at the drop in rate of $13 for a 60 minute class or $16 for a 75 minute class. Students who attend often typically purchase a Yoga Pass  that brings the cost per class down.  View the pass options and purchase a pass on the Rates page.

What should  I expect at my first class?

You will enter the studio into a small reception area. Please remove your shoes. Identify yourself to the teacher as a new student and he or she will help you sign in and gather your props for class. Please let the teacher know that you are new, your practice experience and any physical limitations or concerns that you may have.

Do I have to be strong and flexible to practice yoga?

Many people are intimidated by the idea of taking a yoga class. At alleyCat, students from babies to seniors enjoy the practice of yoga. Every pose has variations that can be practiced by almost anyone so you do not have to be “flexible” to begin the practice. At alleyCat we welcome you just as you are and hope to introduce you to a complete yoga practice that incorporates deep breathing, yoga poses, relaxation and inner awareness.

What type of training do your teachers have?

Every teacher at alleyCat Yoga is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) who has trained at an accredited school. This means that each teacher has at least 200 hours of training in yoga philosophy, breathwork, anatomy, teaching postures, relaxation and meditation. Many of our teachers have trained well beyond the 200 or 500 hour level at the E-RYT 500 level.

What if I still feel uncomfortable joining a regular class?

If you have special concerns or wish to get an individualized class prior to beginning group practice we can schedule an individualized private yoga class with you. The cost of private instruction is $70-85 an hour. Please Contact us or call / text 573-864.4132.
