Will I be able to do this & how
​is this different from other styles I’ve tried?

Most everyone can do Svaroopa® Yoga. In this practice, we teach you how to use various props, and precise alignment to support your body in each pose. We are able to meet you where you are at, as a beginner, and help deepen your practice as a continuing student. If you are dealing with pain, or chronic illness, please discuss your needs with the teacher, so we can best support you. Poses can be modified, and substitute poses may be offered for gentle students.

What do I need to bring?
All props used during our classes are available at the studio. You are welcome to bring your own eye pillow if you have one, and a water bottle. And, feel free to bring a friend, just check with the teacher to confirm space is available.

When can I start taking classes?
You may start any time during a session. Our rates will be prorated accordingly. Each class offers instructions for all poses.

How do I pay for classes?
You can pay in person with cash or check or online on this website.
If by check, please make your check out to: Bon Air Yoga

What happens if I miss a class?
Please call and inform the instructor. They appreciate the advance notice, and we can get you scheduled for a make up class. If you are unable to make up a missed class, you may apply that credit to a private session. We are unable to transfer missed classes to upcoming sessions.
If you need to make up a class, please call ahead to make sure there is room, and the class is being held.

Can I start mid-session?
Yes, you may start at any time. The eight week session is a calendar 8 week period. We will pro-rate if you join mid-session.

What happens if I am running late?
It’s ok to join class. We begin each class in Shavasana, so please be respectful of the other students, and enter peacefully. You may sit quietly, and settle until we begin the poses.

What should I wear?
Anything that is comfortable for you that moves freely. You may want to wear layers, as your body temperature can change during class.

There are 5 ways one can benefit with a private lesson:
Poses - to help create a home Asana (pose) daily practice to deepen their class study, as well as work to overcome injury/illness.
Breathing - to deepen their practice, and/or to work with overcoming an illness, surgery, injury. This is also a great support for maintaining good health, and supports a meditation practice as well.
Vichara - no yoga experience necessary. This can be done over the phone, or in person. Helps with everything!
Embodyment - a yoga therapy practice, helps to melt away deeper tensions. This helps with everything - no yoga experience necessary.
Yoga Therapy - a yoga therapy practice, helps to support/overcome with injury, illness, disability, also can be used to deepen your personal yoga daily practice. No yoga experience necessary.

How to get the most out of each yoga class:

  • Arrive 10 minutes early to allow time to check in, set up your blankets, and settle into Shavasana, our beginning pose. This allows for a nice transition to begin your class.
  • Wear comfortable, clothes that allow you to move freely.
  • Try not to eat at least 1 hour before class.
  • Turn off your cell phone, so there are no external distractions.
  • Please do not wear perfumes, or lotions with fragrance, as other students may be allergic, or sensitive to heavy smells.
  • Please advise the teacher if you will arrive late or leave class early.
  • Be sure to keep your teacher informed of any injuries, or health concerns so we may offer the greatest amount of assistance to support you.
