FAQs What makes Oak Studio different from other yoga studios? Oak Studio was created to meet all your yoga needs under one roof. We offer a wide variety of yoga classes and sculpt, which is a hybrid bootcamp and yoga class with weights, so you can pick the classes based on your goals. We also show you how to layer your classes depending on what you’d like to achieve. We also understand that fitness can be pricey. We know it’s a commitment of your time and money to join a studio. That’s why we offer affordable memberships so you can take advantage of our classes without breaking the bank. Beyond fitness, we are a community of individuals seeking connection while having fun working out. This is what makes Oak Studio so special! Is Oak Studio a yoga studio? Oak Studio is so much more than a yoga studio. From yoga basics to power flow to sculpt, we offer a range of classes for you to try! Explore our classes and see how you can layer your week! What class should I start with? The true beauty of Oak Studio is the array of classes offered throughout the week. Choose a class that sounds interesting to you and give it a try! Always feel free to contact us to discuss what may be best for you! When should I arrive for my class? If it’s your first time to Oak Studio, welcome! We are so happy you’re here. We recommend arriving 10 minutes prior to class to sign in so we can give you a tour of our space. We’ll show you where to put your stuff and help you get everything you need to set up your mat. If you are not a first-timer, please arrive at least 5 minutes prior to class to give yourself some time to check in, store your items, and get set up at your mat. We do lock the doors after class starts, so please be on time. Do you have parking? Yes! There is ample free parking (woo-hoo!). What if it’s my first time? Hooray! We are so happy to have you here. If it’s your first time to the studio, try to arrive 10 minutes before class. First stop: visit the front desk! We’ll get you checked in and show you around the studio. Feel free to ask any questions. Choose a spot in class and set up your mat—or borrow one of ours! If you feel you can’t do something the instructor is telling you, or if you ever feel overwhelmed, remember that this is your time. Be kind to your body. Take a rest at any time. There is absolutely no “must” or “have to” in class. Do I need to sign up for a class before I arrive? We recommend signing up for a class ahead of time to make sure you reserve your spot. Feel free to sign up through our site or download our app to make registering a breeze! You are welcome to drop in and pay upon arrival, but we can’t guarantee the class won’t be full. Do you offer virtual classes? Yes, we do! If you are an Oak Studio member or class pack holder, you can receive access to our private Facebook group where we offer live virtual classes. Request to join the "Oak Studio LIVE Virtual Classes!" group. Check out our schedule for virtual class times. Do I need to sign up for class ahead of time? Yes, you must pre-register for class. To keep the studio space as safe as possible, class sizes are limited to 9 students. Pre-registration is required as class sizes are smaller. We also have a waitlist, so if you have registered for class and can no longer attend, please cancel your reservation. What is your cancellation policy? We totally get it—life happens! Sometimes you can’t always make a class. If so, we ask that you cancel at least 4 hours before class, so someone else has a chance to snag their spot. If you cancel within 4 hours of class and your purchased class was a drop-in class or part of our class pass pack, you will lose that class credit. Are the classes all levels? Yes! We have a variety of classes to cater to anyone —beginner or expert! Specific classes will explain whether some experience is recommended, but if you are new, just let your instructor know and listen carefully to the verbal cues. Remember to relax and have fun! You can read more about our class descriptions, but if you still have questions or concerns, feel free to give us a call at 614-434-6043 and we will figure out what’s best for you! How hot is the studio? Heat can be an advantage in some classes to allow you to stretch deeper. But not all of our classes are heated. Each class is different, but if the class has added heat, it will be shown on our schedule. I’m not very flexible, can I do yoga? Yes! We’ll meet you on the mat—wherever you are at. The beauty of yoga is coming to the mat exactly as you are. If you are brand new to yoga or looking to build the foundations of your practice, we recommend our yoga basics class or even one of our slow flow classes. Also, be sure to keep an eye out for workshops that will grow your practice. What if I have an injury or am pregnant? Speak to your instructor before class to discuss any injuries or limitations you may have. Your instructor will make sure to offer modifications when appropriate. If you are pregnant, please consult with your physician prior to working out. Also, keep an eye out on our events/workshop page or our social media pages (@oakstudiofit) for when we offer prenatal classes. What should I bring? For all classes you will need a water bottle and mat (or borrow one of ours!). Feel free to bring a towel, especially during more energizing classes. Our classes are practiced barefoot, so leave your shoes in the cubbies located in the lobby. What if I’m late or need to leave early? To ensure the safety of our students' belongings and to minimize disruptions, we do lock doors once class starts, so please be sure to arrive on time. If you need to leave early, please let the instructor know ahead of time and set up your mat in a spot that won’t disrupt class when you leave. Can my kids come? Your time spent in class is time spent for you. We kindly ask that you leave your kids at home. Young adults ages 15 and up are welcome. We do occasionally offer kids yoga events for those ages 5-14, so be sure to keep a lookout for that on our events/workshops page or our social media pages (@oakstudiofit). Do you have changing rooms and showers? Yes! We have two roomy bathrooms for you to change and get ready for class. We also have a shower stocked with shampoo, conditioner, soap, and other goodies for you to freshen up after class. As a courtesy to others, please try to keep showers as short as possible. Can I reserve Oak Studio for a private class or event? Of course! We’d love to have you. Give us a call at 614-434-6043 to discuss further details. What’s the deal with the name “Oak”? “Oak” is our namesake (as we’re sisters!) and embodies the soul of the studio. We allow our roots to grow deep, so we can grow tall. Join our community at Oak, so we can grow together! I have another question you didn’t cover! No problem! Feel free to stop by the front desk before or after class, give us a call at 614-434-6043, or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are more than happy to answer any of your questions, comments, or feedback.
