Why should I practice at Radiance Yoga Studio?

We make the practice of yoga easy for students by creating a safe, beautiful, and serene space to breathe, stretch, relax, and renew. Our experienced and devoted teachers are committed to the individual needs and goals of our students. We offer over 50 classes a week at various hours to meet the demands of our students’ schedules. We offer many workshops on yoga, meditation, health and well being, and creative living.

 

What is the difference between Kundalini and Flow? Vinyasa yoga?

Flow yoga is derived from Hatha yoga, which is the physical branch of yoga and focuses on the relationship between breath and movement. Flow yoga is a fluid series of poses linked together with the breath, allowing students to experience a deeper connection with their bodies and a great mind-body workout.

Kundalini, known as the yoga of awareness, uses breath, yogic postures, meditation and chanting to strengthen overall health and well being. The combination of yoga and meditation promotes emotional balance, mental clarity, and deeper self awareness. Kundalini yoga is the yoga for change and transformation. Kundalini Yoga classes at Radiance yoga are based on the teachings of Yogi Bhajan.

 

Why do we chant?

Most yogic chants are in either Sanskrit or Gurmukhi, both ancient languages of the yogis. The sound vibrations created during chanting stimulate pressure points in the mouth. These sound vibrations enhance a meditative state of mind and affect the brain chemistry. Chanting is a powerful tool for combating negative thought patterns.

 

Which class should I take?

We recommend our 6 Week Beginners Flow Series as a great way to learn the basics and as a refresher for more experienced students. We also recommend trying different classes in order to find the class that is right for you. If you have a specific physical requirement or injury please call us for recommendations or ask any staff member at the studio. All classes have a drop-in option.

What should I wear?

For practice, we recommend wearing any comfortable clothing that won’t restrict your movement. Always take your shoes off and leave them in the shoe area when entering the studio.

 

Food & Drink

Please help yourself to our complimentary tea and snacks. Depending on your body, we generally recommend that our students not eat anything too heavy at least one and a half to two hours before a class. If hunger is an issue, a light snack before class can help.

 

Cell Phones

As a courtesy to your fellow students we also ask that all electronics be silenced or turned off in the studios, and that any necessary phone conversations take place in the community area.

 

Mat Rental

Mats are required for every class. Yoga mats are available to rent for $1. Please return rented mats to the front desk. We will wash and disinfect them.

 

Valuables

In addition to the coat and shoe area we also have cubbies in all of our practice spaces for small valuables (for example: your wallet, keys, phone etc.). We highly encourage you to use them, as Radiance cannot be responsible for lost or stolen items.

 

Arrival Time

We open our doors 20-30 minutes before the class starts. We encourage you to arrive 10-15 minutes prior to class start time to give yourself time to get settled and ease into your practice. We invite you to relax in our community area and treat yourself some complimentary tea before and after class. New Students please arrive 20 minutes early to register. To make for smooth and on-time class start times, we only hold reservations up to 5 minutes before the start of class. So, to keep any reservations you’ve made, please be sure to check-in at our front desk at least 5 minutes before class start time.

 

Waitlists

If your desired class is booked online, you can use our online reservation system to join an online waitlist. When a spot becomes available, you’ll be reserved automatically and notified via email. In addition, you’re welcome to come to Radiance in person and join an in-studio waitlist, where available spots are offered on a first-come-first-served basis.

 

Online Reservations

Drop-ins are always welcome to any class, except the 6 Week Beginners Series. Online registration is highly encouraged, as many of our classes fill up quickly especially weekday evenings and on the weekends.

 

Late Arrivals

We will hold reservations up until 5 minutes before class start time. After this time, if there’s a waitlist for a full class, your reservation may be “gifted” to a fellow student who’s waiting. We cannot always accept late arrivals and will not allow entry 10 minutes after a class begins. If you do arrive late, please enter the studio quietly once students have started moving.
