We’ve Got Your Back
Welcome! We’re so excited to have you come join the Emerge community. Please read below for some basic info on how to prepare for your 1st visit, FAQs that are sure to debunk any anticipations, and studio etiquette guidelines that will ensure your experience is full of bliss!
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (and answers):
The “Engage: Slow Flow & Fundamentals” is our beginner focused class, offering a slower paced environment to learn the alignment of basic postures. It’s great for individuals without any yoga/exercise experience or pre-natal women looking for more props & specific modifications. Furthermore, the Release & Restore (yin & restorative) + Bend into Bliss (slow flow + restorative) sessions will provide a slower paced & relaxing + rejuvenating experience that is EXCELLENT for the yoga newbie to get acquainted to their journey on the mat.
Finally, if you have tight muscles or tension in your mind, Emerge is the place to be. Our mission is simply to meet you where you are (wherever you’re coming from) and provide a non-intimidating, open & light-hearted space to explore what’s most supportive for you. Please check MindBody for full class descriptions and don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions!
That said, any class you decide to attend will provide an environment where you can get back into your practice as feels good with plenty of options to modify if necessary.
The “Engage: Yoga Basics” is our Fundamental Class, offering a slower paced environment to learn the alignment of basic postures. Even if you’re not a “yoga newbie,” this class will provide slower moments with more modifications that will get you back into a fitness regimen.
Furthermore, the Release & Restore (yin + restorative) + Bend into Bliss (slow flow + restorative) sessions will provide a slower paced & relaxing + rejuvenating experience that is EXCELLENT if you’re looking for something to open your body & release tension in a gentle fashion.
However, it’s really up to you (and your Dr. of course). We’ve seen pre|post-natal women need to take it easier than they are use to for some time.. and others in headstand until they gave birth & back at it a week later (no joke).
Just tell any teacher where you’re at the 1st time you meet them & they will take good care of you!
Any other questions, please don’t hesitate to ask! And congratulations!
If you do not use all your classes in a package before the expiration, you may re-active expired sessions with the purchase of a NEW FULL PRICED CLASS PACK at the studio (as long as it is within 6 months of the expiration date). Furthermore, we will tack on a little extra time to use your classes in the new package (1 month for up to 4 classes, 2 months for 5-9 classes, and 3 months for 10 classes & up).
For Example: If you had 6 expired classes and were to purchase a 5 pack at the studio ($95 w/ 2 month expiration), we would apply the expired classes to the new pack and you would have 11 session to use in 4 months (instead of just 2).
That said we do realize that SOMETIMES stuff comes up (that traffic jam, no parking, or Murphey’s law keeping you from getting to the studio early). If this happens to be the case (and you will still be LESS than 5 minutes late for a land yoga class only), please CALL the studio at least 5 minutes BEFORE the class starts (you must speak with someone) so we can hook up some straps or put a mat down before class starts, so your late entry won’t disrupt anyone else’s zen! There is no late admission into AG Group Classes due to safety reasons, no exceptions!
Please wait in reception for someone on the Flight Crew to guide you back & open up the door to quietly let you in at a time that will be safe/least disruptive for the class.
