Frequently Asked Questions
I am brand new to Yoga. Which classes are suitable for me ?
This is a very common question, and we have a great answer for you ! If you're brand new, we recommend clearing out your schedule as much as possible, and purchasing our "2 Weeks Unlimited" yoga plan. This will allow you to try as many class styles and teachers as you like, with a minimal financial investment. We have found that every student is different, and will find unique classes and teachers that fit their life, regardless of level of experience.
I am pregnant, recently had a baby, or recently had surgery or suffered an injury. Can I still attend yoga or fitness class?
Yes, you may still attend class. We recommend you get clearance from your physician, and start with our gentler classes, which are Tai Chi, Adaptive Yoga, Gentle Morning Yoga, Yin & Meditation, Belly Dancing for Fitness, and All Levels Yin(ish). Nearly any class can be modified, as long as you listen to and honor your body

What if I can't make it to class and I already registered?
What do I need to bring to class?
The most important thing you can bring to any of our Yoga or Fitness Classes is an Open Mind. Every one of our nine teachers are kind, nurturing, and deeply focused on helping others. You will have a better class experience if you wear comfortable, layered clothing and bring water. For our outdoor classes, you will need to bring your own mat(although a towel, blanket, or sheet will work) .For Tai Chi classes, we recommend flat shoes and loose, comfortable clothing. For Belly Dance and Yoga classes, comfortable, stretchy fabrics work nicely, but we honestly wouldn't care if you showed up in your PJ's! We have also stocked the studio with enough props for 11 students, so again, don't worry . If you don't own a yoga mat/blocks. straps, we have you covered.
Should I eat or drink before class?
This is a great question. You always want to be hydrated, this will reduce the risk of injury and dehydration. We recommend you don't eat a full meal for about 3 hours before class, although light snacks are fine. With Many yoga poses, and aerobic activity in general, having a full stomach can be very uncomfortable.
The short answer is, absolutely not ! If you do have a solid practice at home, that's fantastic, we are honored to have you come to our studio. But we are also equally honored to be the place you feel comfortable growing into that stronger, more flexible, more in shape version of You. And honestly, Yoga, Fitness, and Wellness is about so much more then how we look. Our goal at Tranquil Lake is to help you Feel, Love, and Be, your very best self. The strength, energy, and improved body tone are just nice bonuses.
Do I need to be strong ,flexible, and in great shape to take yoga or fitness classes?
How does Tranquil Lake communicate class cancellations or changes ?
Another great question. If we need to move locations (i.e. take our outdoor classes inside die to inclement weather, or change from Victory Park to Showse Park , we will make a post on our Facebook and Instagram pages ,no later then 1hour prior to class start time. If our teachers experiences a last minute emergency, and we are unable to find a substitute, we will email or call all scheduled students to alert you of the cancellation, in addition to posting on our FB and IG pages.
