What to Expect
Here are some helpful tips to make your visit at Oak Studio as enjoyable as possible:
Drink water before, during, and after your class. Staying hydrated is essential to staying healthy! Feel free to fill up your water bottle at our hydration station. Forgot yours at home? No problem! You can purchase bottled water for $2.
Bring a water bottle, hand towel, and yoga mat (or borrow one of ours!). Our classes use a yoga mat, but if you do not have one or forgot yours, feel free to borrow one of ours for free. You can leave your personal belongings in the cubbies in the lobby.
No shoes required. Our classes, including Sculpt, are practiced barefoot. You can leave your shoes on the mat next to the cubbies.
Wear comfortable clothing for exercise. Some acceptable options may be leggings or shorts, tank tops or short sleeve shirts—anything you can move in without discomfort! For yoga classes, you may want to avoid loose-fitting tops, which tend to fall in certain poses. Psst...be sure to check out Oak Studio’s apparel to wear in the studio or out and about!
Arrive a few minutes early. This will help ensure you won’t be rushed to set up your space. Grab your equipment or props, say hi to your instructor, and relax until class starts. We do lock the doors at the start of class to keep your valuables safe and to allow you to enjoy your practice without distractions.
Check in at the front desk before heading into the workout space. We want to make sure we meet you and get you signed into class.
Before class, be sure to share with your instructor any injuries that may affect your fitness routine.
Silence your cell phone and electronic devices during class. If you need to keep your phone handy in case of an emergency or an important call, please just let us know ahead of time.
Enjoy adjustments. Oak instructors may offer “hands-on” adjustments to help you find freedom in your poses and deepen your practice. If you are uncomfortable or have any limitations or injuries, let your instructor know before class.
Listen to verbal cues to maximize your results. Get the most out of class! Try to minimize talking so you don’t miss any helpful cues.
After class, be sure to wipe down your equipment and mat with gym wipes provided.
