Evolve Yoga & Wellness was founded on the simple idea that everyone should have access to quality classes in a welcoming environment. Here we’ve gathered the most common questions we get from new students. Please read through the answers and feel free to reach out to us with any other questions you have.
Our tips and pointers
Arrive 5-10 minutes early so that you have time to fill out release, get situated and settled before class begins.
There is metered parking in front of building, parking lots to the south and parking ramp located across the street from the studio.
Wear comfortable clothing that allows you to move freely.
Yoga is practiced barefoot. Please remove your socks.
Props such as blocks, straps, blankets and bolsters are available for you to use during class. Studio mats are available if you don’t own your own.
Check to be certain that your cell phone is off.
Some teachers begin and or end class with a chant or Om. This is meant to calm and center the mind and open the heart before we begin our yoga practice together. Feel free to join in or sit silently and begin to quiet your mind and ready yourself for yoga.
We offer hands on assists and a savasana (final resting pose) assist that includes massage balm with essential oils (peppermint/lavender). This assist is primarily focused on the neck and is exquisitely relaxing. Assists are designed to help you modify any poses as needed. If you prefer to practice hands off, you may place a ‘no assists’ rock on your mat. These are located on the prop shelf.
Photography. Evolve will occasionally take photos or videos in classes and special events for marketing and promotional purposes. By signing the waiver prior to your first visit, all students give permission to have their image used in any advertising or promotional material. If you have reservations around your photo being used, please address with the teacher.
Always be good to yourself. Listen to your own body and follow what your personal needs are at all times. Never push yourself beyond your limits. Trust your intuition. Use your breath as your guide. If you cannot breathe smoothly and deeply, you may be working too hard. No one knows you like you! Be mindful throughout your whole practice. This mindfulness will grow in you and eventually extend out into your everyday life, allowing you to take your yoga off the mat!
