The Transformative Power of Yoga: A Journey Beyond the Mat

November 16, 2022 by



Hello there!

I thought it would be a good idea to add a FAQ blog post to answer some of the most popular questions that I get asked. Feel free to read through, especially if you are brand new to Quartz.

Question: Is the studio a shoe-free zone? Why is that?

Answer: Yes! The entire building is a shoe-free zone. Every yoga studio that I have visited from Pennsylvania to Iceland to Portugal to Aruba is indeed shoeless. It helps to keep the space pristine, cuts down on debris, and really helps to keep the studio running smoothly. Our wellness spa is the same way. My hope is that you feel comfortable as soon as you step foot into Quartz to really settle in and be as relaxed as possible. I know that idea of going to a public restroom with no shoes on can be a little daunting but rest assured that I work REALLY hard to keep the space clean. Feel free to leave your shoes in a cubby and make your way into our space.

Question: What should I bring with me for class?

Answer: You are more than welcome to bring your own yoga mat and props. We do have plenty in studio for you to borrow. Lots of mats and lots of props. I recommend bringing a bottle of water as well.

Question: I’m totally new to yoga. Which class is best for me?

Answer: I always recommend starting with Intro to Yoga. I run this once a month, the first Monday at 7:00pm. The best part is, is if you’re new to Quartz, class is just $10. Select that price when you’re checking out. If you cannot make that class or you’d like to come sooner, no worries! Slow Flow on Wednesday evening at 7:15pm, Slow Flow on Saturday morning at 9:30am or Candlelight Restore on Sunday evening at 6:30pm are all great for beginners. Some yogis even choose to stay with these classes for years to come. Our goal is that you feel super comfortable and know that no matter what class you choose, you put your best effort forward and let go of the results.

Question: What should I wear?

Answer: Something that you can move in. You want to be as comfortable as possible. That could range from your comfy pajamas to yoga pants to anything really. We have students that come in jeans. It’s really up to you.

Question: What time should I arrive?

Answer: We do our very best to unlock the studio doors 15 minutes prior to the start of class. That ensures plenty of time to settle into your spot or to fill out a waiver if you’re new to Quartz.

Question: I really don’t love the idea of a public class. I’d like to start with a private class. Is that an option?

Answer: Absolutely! There are many private classes being held throughout the week. Send us an email to discuss what you’re looking for and to pick the day/time that works best for your schedule. Private classes can be one on one or you’re more than welcome to bring someone or many people. Our space can hold about 18 comfortably, so it’s really up to you.
