What to Expect at Treehouse Yoga
At Treehouse, we love introducing people to yoga. We welcome new students and all levels of practitioners. You'll find our teachers and fellow students to be kind, patient and helpful. Whether it's your first yoga class ever or just the first time to our studio, below are a few guidelines.
New to Yoga
The studio opens 15 minutes prior to each class. Please arrive early to set up your mat and check in.
Wear comfortable exercise clothes. Yoga pants, tights, sweatpants, t-shirts and tank-tops are all appropriate. We practice in our bare feet.
We recommend practicing on an empty stomach and staying hydrated during class. Feel free to bring a water bottle with you.
Some classes include meditation, chanting, and/or a dharma talk. Participate in whatever aspects you're comfortable with but please be respectful of others' practice.
Be compassionate with yourself as you learn about yourself and your body in a new way. Feel free to look around the room for guidance as you learn new asana (poses) but please don't compare.
If at any point during class you feel uncomfortable, please sit or rest in child's pose. Trust your body and understand that yoga is an individual practice.
We try to keep our class descriptions as up to date as possible, if you are new to Yoga, try one of our beginner-friendly classes before embarking onto the intermediate or advanced classes. If you have questions about the level of any class, you can call or text 413-281-3597 or 954-288-2165-we are here to help!
Please arrive early to sign in and set up your mat.
Turn off your cell phones and leave them by your shoes/belongings during class.
Please remove your shoes at the top landing of the stairs. Place shoes on shoe shelf to left of stairs. There will be a sign up sheet for each drop-in class or you will reserve on-line through punchpass. You will be asked to read and sign a waiver and liability form.
There will be a basket for cash and checks on our cabinet for our drop-in classes. For our pre-registration classes, you will need to purchase a pass through punchpass and then reserve your spot in advance.
Absolutely NO SCENTS, NO ESSENTIAL OILS AT ANY TIME! We share our breathing space. Some folks are highly allergic and/or sensitive to various fragrances. Be thoughtful and kind.
Please bring your own Yoga props. However, we do have a limited number of mats, blankets, straps, blocks, and bolsters for borrow.
Please note that the studio is on the second floor and there are stairs to climb. Unfortunately, there is no elevator.
Plan on staying through the end of class, including relaxation.
Always feel free to ask questions if you need assistance.
Breathe. Smile. Have fun!
