Frequently Asked Questions
Yoga In Your Workplace
Q: How many people can attend a workplace yoga class?
A: Depending on the space you are able to provide, I can hold classes for two to thirty students. I offer tiered pricing according to the estimated number of participants.
Q: Are mats provided?
A: Many of my clients opt to invest in mats and props that will be kept in their workplace. I can also provide up to 18 mats at a slightly higher rate. I do not supply blocks or other props, such as blankets or straps. These are highly beneficial in a yoga practice and I encourage my clients to invest in these if it is feasible.
Q: Is this particular style of yoga accessible to all levels?
A: Yes! All levels and ages are encouraged to join! I always offer various modifications so the practitioner can choose the level of intensity of their practice, according to their present ability.
Q: Do the participants need to change clothing before and after? Will they get sweaty?
A: Generally it is best to wear clothing that is comfortable and breathable. Sweats, gym shorts, leggings, tees and tanks are all suitable. The sweat level will vary from student to student of course, however typically for most practitioners the sweat level will be minimal. We intentionally flow at a slower, mindful pace. Clients often like to keep workout clothing to change into before class, and if it is a mid-day class, change back into their office attire with no shower needed. They may want to bring cloth wipes or a washcloth for gentle freshening up if returning to work.
Q: How long is a typical class?
A: This will be discussed upon signing the contract, but classes can range from 30 minutes to an hour, depending upon the time needs of the client. Keep in mind that the employee will most likely want to have a buffer of about 10 minutes before and after class. Timeliness is encouraged, as classes will begin and end promptly. I value my time and I know you do as well.
Q: How much space do you need?
A: This depends upon the number of employees participating. It is fantastic if there is an onsite gym, though quite often practice takes place in a common area, such as the cafeteria or lunch room.
Q: What time of day should we offer class?
A: Again, this is entirely up to you and needs of your company specifically. Most often classes are held during lunch or at the end of the work day, around 4:30p. I am quite flexible and can typically work around your schedule.
