Frequently-Asked Questions

We teach alignment-based yoga, also called "hatha yoga," which means we teach yoga's physical form. We blend several styles of hatha yoga and each instructor has a distinctive approach. All of our classes emphasize body alignment, breathing and relaxation techniques, and meditation.

We do not teach "hot yoga." Our studio temperature is similar to your home's temperature.

At no charge, we provide yoga props like bolsters, straps, blocks, blankets and sandbags. Props provide physical support so that each student can practice poses as fully as they wish. These yoga aids were first introduced by B.K.S. Iyengar to help students practice poses that they might not have otherwise been able to do.

We also include the values of yoga in our practice, including compassion, integrity and non-harming.

Yes. Yoga is not a religion. It is a collection of techniques designed to develop health and well-being. It is compatible with everyone's beliefs.

Not unless you want to. Our instructors use both English and traditional Sanskrit terms for yoga poses.

Before class, mention any pre-existing conditions or injuries to your instructor so that they can help you modify poses.

Our class descriptions can help you learn about the kinds of classes we offer, and our staff is very happy to consult with on the best class to start with.

If you're new to yoga, or haven't practiced in many years, any of the following classes are good starting points: All-Levels Yoga, Level 1 Yoga, Chair Yoga, Gentle Yoga, Back Care Yoga and Restorative Yoga.

Pregnant students are welcome to attend Level 1 Yoga, All-Levels Yoga, our restorative "Quieting The Mind" yoga classes, Gentle Yoga, Chair Yoga, and Back Care classes. All Sunrise teachers are well-trained in working with pregnant students. We do recommend receiving your doctor's approval before your first class. Please let your yoga teacher know that you're pregnant prior to class.

If you have other health considerations, please talk to us about your concerns. We also ask that you get your doctor's approval before your first class.

All of our teachers are trained to work with a variety of student concerns. We have worked successfully with many different situations. Some of our classes are specifically designed for students with physical limitations or health concerns. 

You may also want to consider a private yoga session prior to attending your first class.

The best way to decide if Sunrise is for you is to experience our classes alongside other students. We generally don't permit spectators because it can be distracting and disruptive for class members.

Try as many of our classes as you like with our New Student Special, which gives you 30 days of unlimited yoga for only $30.

Or, if you'd like to try a specific class, you can pay the drop-in rate or purchase a class card.

We also encourage you to visit the studio or contact us with any questions. We're here to help!
