Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is the Bodhi Tree Studio open during regular business hours? I know what time my class starts, but what time should I arrive?
A: Bodhi Tree Studio is not open all the time during regular business hours. Much of our time is spent preparing for classes, workshops or events, or the studio may be rented out to a private party. With this in mind, the studio will be open 30 minutes before any and all scheduled sessions. You should plan to arrive 10-15 minutes prior to your class or appointment. If you arrive a little late, please be sure to enter the room quietly.
Q: I just ate a big meal, is it still ok to participate in class?
A: Try not to eat 1-2 hours before a class. If you do your yoga practice on a full stomach you might experience some cramping or nausea.
Q: Do I need to bring anything for yoga class?
A: Please bring your yoga mat, a towel and water (we have a limited supply available if you forget). We will have reverse osmosis water for your enjoyment, and we have props available for your use.
Q: What should I wear?
A: We recommend you wear loose comfortable clothing for yoga. We work in bare feet or socks. No shoes in the yoga room please. Heavy scents or lotions are discouraged.
Q: Are there any conditions in which I should NOT participate in yoga?
A: Its best to always check with a doctor if you feel that you have a physical condition that may interfere with your participation. Please let your teacher know about any injuries or conditions that might affect your practice as you might have to modify your poses or skip some postures. Also, it is important to let your teacher know if you are pregnant prior to class.

Q: Anything else I should know?
