Welcome to UB Yoga.
Yoga 101 Workshop
This workshop is perfect for people new students but also for students who want to review the basics. The cost for this two-hour workshop is $30 and includes a one-week yoga pass which starts the day after the workshop. We have this workshop almost every month so check below to see when the next one is scheduled!
Intro to Yoga Series
Yoga Basics Classes
We recommend that everyone who is new to yoga take Yoga Basics for a few months. If you' ve dabbled in yoga for a while but never got too serious you should start with Yoga Basics, too. We want you to have a good experience and that means starting with a class that's your level. Check when Yoga Basics is scheduled here.
FAQ's about Yoga and UB Yoga Studios
Studio etiquette helps us all have a yoga experience just as it was meant to be.
Be on time to class. If you are late, you may or may not be able to get in depending on if there is reception at the Grove location. Since Dogtown is a one-room studio, you'll be able to get in but we ask that you kindly don't enter if everyone is still in centering meditation at the beginning of class.
A few thing you should know...
Yoga is more than physical exercise. It is a transformative practice that integrates body, mind and spirit. Yoga practice is a way of releasing physical, mental, and emotional tensions to arrive at deeper levels of relaxation and awareness.
Is someone there at the studio all day?
At the Grove, we are often (but not always) there from 9am-3pm weekdays. We have weeknight reception from 5-7:30pm as well as weekend reception on Saturdays 8am-12pm and Sundays 5pm-7:30pm
At Dogtown, no. Being a small neighborhood space, we're not there all day. The doors are open 15 minutes before each class. Get there early so that you don't feel rushed.
What classes are for me?
If you have never done yoga before, please take Yoga Basics for at least six classes. This will give you all the basic information and serve as your yoga orientation, giving you all you need to feel comfortable and confident as you venture into other yoga classes. We also often offer Yoga 101 workshops and Intro to Yoga series to familiarize you with the fundamentals of the practice. After you've completed at least six Basics classes, feel free to attend "all level" classes. From there, talk with your instructors and get their advice as you move deeper into your practice.
Is it OK to eat before yoga class?
It's good to drink plenty of water before and after class, but try to come to class with an empty (or nearly empty) stomach.
What happens if the weather is bad?
You can check to see if we have cancelled class because of the weather by visiting our WebScheduler .
What is the WebScheduler?
The WebScheduler is our online studio management system. You can login to the system to purchase a drop-in, a class card, or a membership, to make appointments, to see an up-to-the-minute class schedule with substitutions or cancellations, to see a history of your attendance, and more. Visit the WebScheduler and have a looksy!
What should I bring to class?
We recommended to bring your own yoga mat, but if you don’t have one you can use one of ours. Other than that, you don't need to bring anything to your yoga class.
What should I wear to class?
Wear comfortable clothes that you can move in, and take off your shoes in the lobby before entering the studio. You may find form fitting clothing is best as it stays out of your way as you move through poses, and practicing barefoot is ideal as it helps with grip on the mat. Limit use of perfume just before class.
