Welcome! We can’t wait to meet you. Everything you need to know is on our handy, New to Past Tense page.
Yes! You're welcome to pop in. We do encourage pre-registration as that will guarantee you a space and speed up the class sign-in process so you have more time to settle in and relax. But spontaneity is cool, too! Just be sure to get there 10 minutes early.
Sure! We release spots to the waitlist 5 minutes before class. We can’t guarantee you will be let in, but it’s worth a shot and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.
Our doors open 15 minutes before class starts. Please arrive 5-10 minutes early to settle in, set up your mat, and connect with the teacher. We encourage you to give yourself the gift of time and the opportunity to meet with others in our community before class.
Please note we start to release waitlisted spots five minutes before class begins and cannot guarantee your spot if you arrive after that point. Also, in order to create a peaceful, safe, and sacred space, we do not allow latecomers and lock the door once class begins.
Things happen. We get it. However, in order to create a peaceful, safe, and sacred space, we do not allow latecomers and lock the door once class begins. Please do not knock on the door if you find it locked. This is all to say, there is no late entry.
We ask that you remain in class through Savasana and our final breaths together as early departure is disruptive to others. If there are extenuating circumstances, please talk to the teacher before class. If early departure is not possible and you can’t stay, we will cancel you out of the class so you can use the pass at a later date.
Canceling your class is a kindness! We’re a community studio with limited space. If you can’t make it to class, please cancel at least two hours in advance so someone else can take your spot.
If you cancel in advance, the class will be returned to your Past Tense account for future use. If you do not cancel your registration at least two hours in advance, you will lose the class from your pass. If you’re on an auto-renewing membership plan, you will incur a $10 no-show fee.
Here’s the information commercials like to speed through. It’s not the most fun, but we suggest reading it anyway:
- Pre-purchased single classes cannot be refunded to your credit card. If you cancel your registration two hours in advance, the class will be returned to your Past Tense account for later use.
- If you’re looking to cancel your auto-renewing membership, please email us with two weeks' notice. As a gentle reminder, all memberships automatically renew every month until canceled. Cancellations can be made at any time. We do not pause or pro-rote memberships. All sales are final and memberships are non-transferable.
- Pre-payment in full for classes, workshops, and series is required at time of registration. All sales are final.
- Past Tense credit is given for workshop cancellations made up to 48 hours before the workshop. No refunds after that point.
- If Past Tense cancels the workshop, full credit or refund will be issued.
- Before reaching out to dispute a charge with your credit card company, please reach out to us. Credit card companies are meanies (and charge businesses a lot of nasty fees they don’t tell you about), and we are nice.
We encourage students to bring their own mat and props, particularly massage balls or two tennis balls in a tube sock for Roll + Restore or Roll + Flow classes.
We offer a limited number of mat rentals and we also have mats, blocks, straps, TuneUp® balls, and other props available for sale at the studio.
(Pssst: Not your phone)
Yup! Please silence all electronics and leave them in the lobby or entrance area. If you have a smart watch, please set it to theater or airplane mode so as not to disturb fellow students. If there are extenuating circumstances, please talk to the teacher before class.
Of course! Friends and yoga are a delicious combination—like chocolate and peanut butter or avocado and toast. Please keep in mind multiple reservations cannot be booked under one student’s name. If you purchase a class or workshop for a friend, you will have the opportunity at checkout to gift the pass to them.
We love meeting your friends and family (furry and otherwise). However, guests are not welcome to hang in our lobby during class.
If you’d like to practice with your wee one, we offer Baby + Me Fitness and Baby + Me Yoga classes for the not-yet-crawling set. If you’d like your little one to practice, we have a monthly PJ Party and YogArt class for kids 5 and up. See our schedule for more.
Our regular classes are intended for students 18 years of age and older. Children over 13 may attend specific classes with permission from the teacher. Permission should be requested by email at least 48 hours in advance. Please specify which class you are interested in having your child participate in, And, children must attend class with an adult. Attending adults are asked to educate the child about respectful studio manners.
Yoga brain is real. Congratulations on walking out that relaxed. Any items we find are stashed in the Lost + Found cubby in the entryway. These items are cleared out periodically. We do our best, but we can not be responsible for items left behind.
Credit cards. Preferably the one you’ve stored in your account to expedite your way to ahhh. To be really clear, we don’t take cash or keep it in the studio.
If you are attending online, our livestream classes “open” at least 10 minutes before class time. After you register for a livestream class, you will receive an email with a link to class. You may also login to your account, navigate to the appropriate class on the schedule, and click on the green video camera icon .
Everyone in your home, including fur babies and kids, are welcome to join you for the class—no need to register them separately. Also, you don’t need to have your camera on, but it’s always helpful for the teachers to see you. You will be muted for the class, but you can type a hello or question into the chat before or after class.
Yes, when you buy a new pass. Our passes are good for six months, and we're happy to roll any expired classes into your next pass. Just email us when you buy a new pass, and we’ll take care of it.
We offer electronic gift cards here. You will need to set up an online account in order to buy one. If you prefer a physical gift card, please call us or stop by the studio when we open (15 minutes before class).
In spite of the colloquial term “yoga pants,” there really is no such thing! No need to wear any fancy name-brand spandex to class. We recommend you come in comfortable clothing that can stretch with your body and not ride up in a way that compromises your modesty. We do not have changing rooms so come ready for class or expect to wait for the single bathroom to get dressed.
We offer three tiers of membership pricing which you can learn about here. Once you sign up, we charge your credit card each month automatically on the same date on which you initially signed up.
You can cancel anytime by emailing us with two weeks' notice. We do not pause or prorate memberships. All sales are final and non-transferable.
Membership has its privileges including unlimited classes at both studios, livestream, and access to our video library as well as discounted pricing for workshops, series, mat rental, and merchandise.
Sharing is caring, and you can find several of our teacher’s playlists here.
Nope. We have a small bathroom in each studio, and you’re welcome to change clothes there, but we recommend coming dressed for class (one toilet, many students).
We ask that you be fully vaccinated for all illnesses, but we currently do not require proof of vaccination for COVID or others. If you are ill or concerned you might be contagious, please stay home (and take class online, if you feel well enough). Masks are optional unless otherwise noted on the schedule.
