Welcome! We are so happy you are here! Whether you are new to yoga, or simply new to GYC, we look forward to sharing the practice of yoga with you.
When should I arrive?
Please allow time to park, sign in and get settled. We understand that life happens, but please make your very best effort to arrive at least 5 minutes before class begins (The door unlocks 15 min prior to class). Our space is small, and late entry is disruptive for students who are already settled. We allow a 5 minute grace period, as long as the teacher is still talking and has not begun movement. Once centering or warm-ups begin, the door is locked!
Where should I park?
There are many options for parking around the studio. If you're lucky, you may snag a parking spot in front of the studio. Otherwise, park along South St, College Ave, Church St, or the back row of parking facing Robie gym in the Gorham Grind parking lot.
What should I wear?
Wear comfortable, stretchy clothing that allows for freedom of movement. Layers are good. Bare feet required! Please remove shoes upon entering.
What should I avoid?
Avoid practicing on a full stomach, heavy perfumes, and perfectionism- doing this will help you and your yogi neighbor.
What should I bring?
Bring a yoga mat! Jade mat rentals are available for $2. The studio is equipped with all other props that are free for your use during class.
We want your experience at GYC to be positive, both on and off the mat! Please tell us how we can improve or make your time spent here even better.
As yogis, we know you care about your health and the environment, so do we! You can rest assured knowing that our studio only uses non-toxic cleaners. We don't burn scented candles or incense, but instead diffuse pure essential oils. We try to use as many reusable products as possible. We rent and sell Jade yoga mats- a company we feel proud to stand behind.
