General / Newbie FAQ’s
Do I need to pre-register?
No, just drop in for any class, anytime.
What Do I need?
Nothing really! You can purchase a mat at the studio, or you may rent a studio mat for $1. Ultimately it is much more hygienic to use your own, so please plan to buy a mat. Bring an empty stomach or eat very lightly before class. It’s always nice to have water, which can also be purchased at the studio. You do not need a cell phone. We won’t use them in class, so please leave yours in your car or turn them off.
What do I wear?
Something comfortable that allows movement. No shoes or socks necessary. There is a place to change at the studio.
What can I expect?
A new experience! It’s not hokey or weird, or anything that you need to prepare for, just come. Please plan to focus on your own practice and leave your competitive spirit at the door. This is not a sport or an activity you can master in the first session, so be respectful of your body and its limits.
What time should I arrive?
If it is your first time, please arrive 15 minutes early to get signed in. Otherwise please try to be on time and set up your mat without disturbing others who may be enjoying a few quiet moments before class. If you are late, please come into class quietly, take a few minutes to leave the outside world behind and then join in. Should you need to leave early, please let the teacher know before class begins.
Where is the Studio?
Where do I park?
If you are attending an evening or weekend class at our downtown Frederick location, feel free to use the parking lot behind the building. During the day, please park on any of the surrounding streets. New Market Studio parking is on the street. Hagerstown studio offers easy parking beside the building.
What if I’m not flexible?
That's great! You are a perfect candidate for yoga, no matter what your condition, age or ability. If you have an injury or ailment, please, please let the instructor know before class, so they can help you modify.
What type of yoga is right for me?
There are many different types of yoga and teaching styles. They range from very restorative, gentle and slow to quite vigorous and challenging. Try different classes and teachers to find the approach that suits you best!
Yoga is a religion
Yoga instructors aren’t ordained, they’re certified.
They are not baptized or asked to confirm any specific belief system and neither are students of yoga.
All a student is ever asked to do in a Sol Yoga class is breathe.
You must be vegan or vegetarian to practice yoga.
You’ll never be asked to give up any particular food group to practice at Sol Yoga.
You have to understand Sanskrit to take a yoga class.
Yoga poses do have Sanskrit names, however they also have English names as well. Sol Yoga instructors use both when teaching so that you can learn something new but still follow along.
Yoga only gives you a good stretch, not a good workout.
That depends on the class that you attend. All Sol Yoga classes will give you a good stretch; however our flow classes can definitely be considered a “workout”. Try it for yourself and see what you think!
Yoga builds heat. Don’t be surprised if you sweat during our classes. Please dress appropriately so as not to be uncomfortable. We have towels for rent and water for you to purchase as well.
There are numerous styles and types of yoga. Because of that the
biggest gift you can give yourself is to take advantage of our $25 2-week new student program.
For first time visitors only, it is a cost effective way to try as many
class as you want, which allows you to experience various styles and
practice with different teachers to see what class best resonates with
All yoga classes are the same.
Am I far enough along in my pregnancy to begin prenatal yoga? This
is something to discuss with your health care provider, but we have
women in all stages of pregnancy attend our classes. The benefits
of yoga can help alleviate a lot of the concerns, worries as well as
aches and pains of pregnancy at any stage.
Should I have prior yoga experience? It’s not necessary and the class is open to all levels. Many women are indeed new to yoga and it’s a great time to begin your yoga journey.
How should I dress and what should I bring? Just dress comfortably and bring a mat if you have one.
Do I have to pre-register? How long is a session?
Please do pre-register for this class. Each class is 75 minutes. You can purchase 1 or 10 weeks at a time. If you end up with leftover sessions, you can use them for other classes post pregnancy including mommy & me or any of our adult classes. Additionally, if you run out of classes a few weeks prior to delivery of your baby, just drop in for $18. Follow this link to purchase classes now.
Are non-pregnant yogis allowed to come too? Yes, feel free to bring a buddy or a spouse along with you. They will enjoy the stretching and breathing too. Drop in rates apply ($20)
I have been practicing yoga for some time, can I continue to attend normal classes or should I switch to prenatal classes — and when? Enjoy your regular class as long as it works for your body and your schedule. You will want to make your teacher aware of your pregnancy and modify certain poses. If you can, drop into a prenatal session or two to learn about the dos and don’ts so you can integrate modifications into your regular practice with more confidence.
Can I participate in the kid’s class with my child or should I drop them off? Kid’s
classes are for the kids! Parents can enjoy a break in the lobby while
sipping a cup of tea and listening in, a simultaneous adult yoga class
(when offered), or you can just drop off your kids and run your
What if my kid doesn’t like it? We tell our adults to try 3 yoga classes before deciding it’s not for you and we suggest the same for the kid’s classes! There are so many things we cover, and classes can be very different from one week to the next. That said, we are flexible and want you and your child to be happy. The Sol Babies & Sol Tots five class series will be valid for six weeks in case you miss one and would like to make it up. For the Sol Kids classes, the Little Sol’s 10 class flexipass is valid for four months. You have the option to apply any unused portion to a Family Yoga class, or, upon request, we can transfer the left over credit to the adult’s account and you can use it for yourself!
Can we just drop in or do we need to pre-register for a series? Kids classes are series based classes offered several times during the year. With registration for the full series you receive many benefits: assurance of a place in the class, discounted rates, built in flexibility to complete all classes and the continuity of an entire series of lesson plans. If you are aware of a date your child cannot attend, we are happy to pro-rate the cost of the series. Additionally, we give you an EXTRA week to participate in a make-up class if you do miss one unexpectedly. We do offer a drop in rate of $12 per class if there is space available.
Do I sign up my child under my name? No, if you are registering online, you must register your child in our system and buy the session under his/her name. Do this for each child individually. The exception is Sol Babies & Sol Tots, for this class, register under your name. If there are any questions about registration, we are happy to help you through it. Just call 877.SOL.YOGA or email us
How old does a child have to be to come to a regular class with me?
Our kids classes are geared toward ages 11 and under. If you are confident your 12 year old can be quiet and focused during a 60 or 75 minute class, you are welcome to bring them along. We find that it’s helpful to set yourself up a mat or two away from your kid so there is less temptation for chatting. Please check in with the instructor prior to class. If you are not sure they are ready, consider registering your pre-teen for ‘kids’ yoga class to teach them the basics first.
Is there a discount for siblings? Yes,
for 10% off of your second or additional kids, visit our studio for
registration, this cannot be processed online at this time.
