Frequently Asked Questions – Online Studio

Do you have an app for your online studio?

Yes! Our studio runs on a software called Momence by Ribbon Experiences. Please find the direct link on Apple devices here: https://apps.apple.com/us/app/momence/id1577856009 ; and on Android devices in the Google Play store here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.ribbon.mobileApp

What styles of yoga are instructed in your studio?

Our classes could be categorized as challenging-but therapeutic, pilates-inspired hatha yoga.

We typically center with a brief meditation, close with meditation or savasana, and take a no-BS, anatomically-informed approach to everything in the center. For example, if we teach Warrior II pose, you won’t hear cues to “square your hips” (as this is anatomically impossible).

Teachers pull from diverse backgrounds in yoga, rehabilitation or medical sciences (such as physical therapy), natural or functional movement, fascia release (self massage), and Functional Range Conditioning.

We aim to always honor the essence of the texts and roots of yoga, regardless of whether conventional yoga poses appear in classes.

In general, very little to no vinyasa style is taught.

In addition to yoga, we also teach a highly accessible, 20 minute weekly strength class that does not include meditation or savasana but serves as an excellent introduction for yoga practitioners to build strength using dumbbells or other external load.

What props do I need at home to join your classes?

We keep prop use minimal and creative. For most classes, you will want:
– 1-2 yoga blocks (full size, such as Manduka’s cork block, or recycled foam blocks). Sometimes a pillow will suffice.
– A blanket (or towel)

For fascia classes: we suggest a variety of balls, such as those from RAD (Recovery Rounds, Centre and green RAD Roller are our favorites)

Hips Happy Hour uses a chair without rungs. An ottoman, couch, bed or chair with rungs will also work

Mini-Strength sessions require weights or homemade weights. For example, a backpack with heavy books or a milkcrate with that juicer you own that is collecting dust. Resistance bands are occasionally used and are an easy sub for many of our dumbbell moves.

– OPTIONAL: for complex balance practices, a dowel or a wall nearby can help. If you own other yoga props such as bolsters, straps, or would like to have multiple blankets, towels, pillows, etc nearby to keep you comfortable, go for it.

Learn the gift certificate options here.

I have a lot of wrist pain. Are these classes appropriate for me?

Probably. However, please keep in mind that no group movement class will be fully accessible for all people. The majority of our classes frequently offer modifications or wrist-free options, and there is an entire section of classes tagged as “wrist-free” in our library.
We recommend trying out class, and reminding the teacher ahead of time that you need wrist modifications.

I may need extensive modifications. May I join class?

Everyone is welcome in our classes, regardless of physical needs.

However, please remember that group classes cannot be tailored and fully accessible to every single person’s individual needs. One on one sessions are available with our teachers by booking here: https://happyandwell.janeapp.com/#/yoga-movement-analysis-meditation

If you have a major restriction such as inability to get on and off the floor, please send an email to info@yogaanatomyacademy.com before joining class with a brief description of your limitations, and the name / date of the class or classes you are most likely to take. We can notify the teacher, who can help you to decide whether the class is for you.

Do I need to download any software to join live classes?

Yes. Livestream classes are conducted via Zoom. You will need to have Zoom downloaded on your device to join classes live. (On demand classes require simply an internet connection and either a browser or the app).

Can I rent a single class from the On Demand Library?

Yes. Head to our On Demand Library page. Search, filter or scroll until you find the pre-recorded class, then rent it. You will have access to that class for 7 days.
