FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I need to pre-register for a class?
No. All classes are drop-in; first come, first served. Arrive 10 minutes prior to the start of class.
How do I purchase a pass?
Passes are available for purchase on our website. If you purchase a pass online, the pass goes directly into your Punchpass account and will save time at the beginning of class. While you may pay by cash or check in the studio, please allow up to a 48 hour processing period for your pass to be added to your account. We do not accept "IOU's", if you don't pay, neither the instructor not the studio gets paid. Making your payment online, ahead of time, is preferred.
How early should I arrive to class?
What is the Studio Intro Pass?
What should I wear to yoga?
What should I bring to yoga?
Please arrive no more than 10 minutes prior to the start time of class. Our lobby is small, and it can be disruptive to wellness sessions and classes in session when a lot of people are waiting in the lobby. 10 minutes is a sufficient amount of time to find a spot and punch into class.
Our Studio Intro Pass is intended for people who have never been to The Barefoot Haven to try the different instructors and classes that we offer. It is for WI residents only, is non-transferrable, and cannot be shared. It is only good for our regularly scheduled weekly classes and cannot be used for workshops or special off-site classes, unless otherwise noted. Please be sure to fill out a waiver on your first visit.
It will depend on what type of class you are going to. If you are going to a power yoga class or a vinyasa yoga class, you are going to sweat, so you would want to wear clothes that wick away sweat (similar to what you would wear to go running). Baggy T-shirts are fine for guys, but women should wear a tight-fitting top so that when you are in an inversion (like Downward Dog), your top doesn't come down over your head. Wear capri or full-length fitted pants; this will help your instructor check your alignment.
All you need to bring is a yoga mat. If you don't have one, we have one you can borrow. Please use the mat spray and wipe it down once you're done. You might want to bring a water bottle as well.
What is the best way to contact you?
Other things to expect...
Due to the nature of yoga and massage, we do not have a phone that rings at the studio. Our phone is voicemail only. The fastest way to reach us is to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We typically respond within a few hours. Or please read our FAQ's to see if your question might be answered here.
Please remove your shoes before entering the studio.
Please silence all electronic devices.
Please keep voices low upon entering the studio out of respect for clients enjoying wellness sessions in the rooms adjacent to the studio.
Please refrain from wearing perfume or scents as fellow students may have sensitivities to smells.
Classes will begin on time, and the door will be locked once class begins.
It is best not to eat 2 hours prior to class.
Please plan to stay for savasana so as not to disrupt other students. If you need to leave, please place your mat close to the door, let your instructor know at the beginning of class, and leave as quietly as possible!
