Here is a list of our most commonly asked questions. If your query is not answered here please email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
It’s my first time to Yoga Public. How do I get started?
We have a special page of instructions just for you! Please go to: New to Yoga Public.
I have a free class pass, how do I register?
Your free class pass is payment for class. Present your class pass in person in order to 'pay' or register for a class. You cannot use a free class pass online. This means you need to hand in your class pass in advance in order to pre register or simply show up with your pass on the day of class. We suggest using free class passes for hot classes, which will guarantee you a spot in class.
I have an injury. Which classes should i attend?
Speak to your instructor before class. If you do not find the opportunity to speak with the instructor, let him/her know during class if he/she comes up to you to assist. We can look out for you specifically if we know your situation and can offer modifications specific to your injury. As always, listen to your options and follow what feels best for you. Never force! For a list of beginner friendly classes, go to Beginner Friendly Classes.
What kinds of yoga do you offer?
Each of our instructors have come to where they are through personal practice, continued training and lots of teaching experience, and they teach according to what they know. Our backgrounds include Ashtanga, Iyengar, Hatha, Kundalini, Restorative and Yin Yoga as well as Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, Vipassana Meditation, Cognitive Therapy and Massage Therapy. We offer formal Mysore practice and led Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga classes. Our hot classes can best be described as Hatha yoga as interpreted by each instructor. For a full list and description of our classes, please see the class description page.
Do you have pre natal classes?
While we do not offer specific pre natal classes, many of our classes are appropriate for pregnant women. Speak to your instructor before class to let them know where you're at in your pregnancy. They will offer appropriate modifications and instruction. It is not recommended to practice in the hot room during pregnancy. Please speak with your doctor regarding your options.
Can I arrive late to class?
We know life gets busy and those days when everything runs behind is just the day you need to get to class most, so we do allow latecomers! Please note though, that we will not allow you into class more than 5 minutes late. If you are late for a limited capacity class such as TRX or Floating Yoga, your spot may be given to someone waiting 5 minutes before class start time.
What membership is best for me?
We recommend beginning with our 15 Day Unlimited Pass. Everyone can purchase this pass once and it doesn't have to be your first purchase. The 15 Day Unlimited Pass allows you 15 days to try as many classes as you like, enjoy mat and towel service, as well as 2 hours free parking per day you attend, space permitting. From that point, depending on your anticipated attendance, we can advise you on the best pass or membership for you. Please speak to us at front desk any time to discuss your options.
Is parking included?
All memberships include a maximum 2 hours free parking per day that you attend class, space permitting. Allow one day from date of membership purchase and/or you must have a valid membership card before parking is activated. Drop ins and free class passes do not include parking. Parking on the street is free weekdays before 8:30am, after 5:30pm and on weekends.
Once you have your membership card, you will go to the pay terminal in the lot and follow the prompts, choosing Yoga Public Member and entering your license plate number. Your coupon number is the 4 or 5 digit code on the back of your membership card. You do not need to place the receipt on your dash.
If you will be parking for more than 2 hours, choose the total number of desired hours and pay the difference at the pay station. i.e. if you choose 3 hours, you will pay only one hour and use your coupon for the first 2 hours.
How does the wait list work?
Our limited capacity classes have a wait list option. If someone cancels out of a full class, the first person on the wait list will be notified* and can choose to either confirm pre registration or decline, if no longer able to attend, at which point the next person on the list will be notified. It's a pretty great system, designed to get you into class!
*Be sure to choose your desired method of notification through your mindbody profile. Receive notifications by text, email or both. While you're there, make sure your email address on file is correct. You can choose to receive these notifications as well as receipts and still not receive our newsletters if that is preferred.
What is your cancellation policy?
A late cancel is a cancellation you make within a one hour window of class start time. Cancel before the one hour window and you are not charged a fee nor will a class be drawn from your current pass or membership.
Late Cancel/No Show Fee
We charge a fee of $10 for every limited capacity class you Late Cancel or Do Not Show Up for. Cancel before that one hour window and there is no charge. Cancel within the window or fail to show up and your account will be charged $10 + gst. This charge will apply to TRX and Floating classes ONLY (that is, our 2 most popular limited capacity classes).
We have introduced the Late Cancel/No Show Fee as a courtesy to members that pre register and show up, or try to pre register for full classes that end up partially empty due to no shows. We feel one hour before a class is plenty of time to plan to attend. We ask for your courtesy and mindfulness toward all our members.
5 Minute TRX Arrival Window
Arrive at least 5 minutes early to your TRX class to guarantee your spot. If there are members waiting in the wing that were unable to pre register for a fully registered class, we will pass your pre registered spot on to them. We know life can make you late. But we won’t turn away waiting members when we don't know if you're going to run in the door at the last minute or even a few minutes late. If you are late and there's still a spot open, you're welcome to it! Our policies are meant to get the most members into class, every class!
