General 


 

Q: If I join Body Language can I go to both the fitness classes and the yoga classes?
A: Yes, all memberships include fitness and yoga.  There are over 80 classes a week to choose from between our yoga room and fitness room. We encourage you to enjoy a variety of classes


Q:  How old do you have to be to come to fitness and yoga classes at Body Language?
A:  We would love to have your children practice yoga and /or workout with you.  Body Language does not set any rigid rules regarding appropriate age for Yoga.    As long as you feel your son or daughter will not disturb the other students around him or her….he/she is welcome.  For fitness classes children must be 12 years of age or older, unless prior approval is received.


Yoga


 

Q:  What should I bring?
A:  You can bring your own yoga mat or you can rent one for $2.  You may want to bring water and a towel to class.


Q: What should I wear?
A: Loose fitting clothes that don’t restrict your ability to take a deep breath.



Q:  I have never done yoga in my life. Do you have beginner classes? What if I can’t do a pose?
A: The classes are ordered in degree of difficulty on the class schedule. We generally recommend that students new to yoga begin with a Therapeutic Backs or Better Backs class. The teachers are trained to be able to guide all students regardless of level of experience in and out of every posture.


Q: Can I lose weight doing yoga?
A: Yoga promotes weight loss on several levels.

  • First it is a physical workout that burns calories as well as tones and conditions weak, flabby muscles. The results are a more sculpted body as well as stronger muscles and bones.
  • Secondly, it promotes awareness. Students who practice yoga will move through the rest of their day (including meals) paying closer attention to hunger cues and are more likely to match their food intake with their actual needs.
  • Lastly, the calming effect of yoga actually creates a willingness by the body to let go of unneeded fat stores. Whenever the body and mind are in a relaxed state the inevitable result is more successful weight management.


Q: Is the room heated during yoga?
A: Yes. It is important to practice yoga in a warm room in order to allow the muscles to relax. The gentler and better backs classes will be heated to about 75-78 degrees while the more vigorous ashtanga and vinyasa classes are practiced at 85-90 degrees as the movement is more rapid and the postures more intense.


Q: Do I have to be flexible to do yoga?
A: Absolutely NOT!! The intention of yoga is to make you MORE flexible but wherever you are is where you start. Flexibility WILL increase if you keep coming to your mat!


Fitness


 

Q:  What should I bring?
A:  Bring a pair of workout shoes.  You may want to bring water and a towel to class.


Q: What should I wear?
A: Anything comfortable.
