FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What should I wear?
What equipment do I need?
Mesa Rim’s yoga studio does not currently offer rental yoga mats, blocks, straps, bolsters or blankets. Please bring anything you may need!
Do I need prior yoga experience?
Take a peek at the description of the class you’re interested in attending to ensure you know the level of challenge offered, and be sure to tell your instructor before class that you are new to yoga.
In addition, there are many ways to modify poses to address your specific needs and all of our yoga instructors are well equipped to give you alternatives, especially if you ask for them! Our instructors are always happy to give you some extra help and ensure you have a great experience on your mat. Also, we recommend checking out one of our Yoga Basics Community Classes as a great way to learn the basics and prepare for our other scheduled classes.
I’m not very flexible. Can I still do yoga?
Everyone is welcome in our classes whether you can put your hands flat on the floor in a forward fold or whether your toes seem impossibly out of reach. There’s no requirement to turn your body into a pretzel! The movement, breath, and mindfulness of yoga practice benefits everyone, regardless of flexibility.
What is proper yoga studio etiquette?
- Leave your phone and any other distracting items in a locker or cubby outside the studio.
- Shoes are not permitted on the yoga floor – kick your shoes off before entering (socks are okay if you like, though it’s best to practice in bare feet).
- Arrive a bit early for class to give yourself enough time to set up your space. If you need to leave yoga class early, let your instructor know before the class begins; leaving class early can be distracting to your fellow yogis.
- Yoga mat spray and small towels are provided in the prop room. Spray and wipe off your mat after class, even if you didn’t sweat on it. You can hang your mat on the designated racks after cleaning.
- Some of our classes get pretty full. Be mindful of where you place your mat and props to give others space as well. We’re in this together!
What are the benefits of yoga for climbers?
Yoga teaches us to breathe steadily and evenly and to move with our breath, which is essential for efficient climbing. Most importantly, yoga lets us practice being completely engaged in the present moment: immersed in our experience while also aware of how we’re reacting to that experience. Our climbing experience is dramatically affected by our mental state, and yoga helps us find the mental state that supports climbing success.
