FAQ’s

DO I NEED YOGA EXPERIENCE TO COME TO A YOGA CLASS?

Yes. We only accept people who are super advanced at yoga.

Just kidding… Of course not!

We have classes in our studio and online for all levels. So if you’re brand new or new-ish to yoga, our Foundation and Level 1 classes are a great fit for you. They’re still vinyasa classes, so be prepared to move, but at a level that feels right for you.

Our Level 1/2, Level 2, and Level 3 classes are meant for people who are more familiar with yoga or have been practicing for a while.

Breathe + Restore, Restorative, and Yin Yoga are great compliments to any of our vinyasa classes and are good for all levels.

Another great option if you’ve never done yoga is to sign up for a Beginner’s Series. We offer these crash courses on how to get started with a yoga practice both in-studio and online in an e-book/video format. This series will show you step-by-step all the poses you’ll need to move through a vinyasa yoga class.

WHAT SHOULD I DO BEFORE MY FIRST CLASS?

Coming to your first yoga class can be a bit intimidating and overwhelming– we totally get it!

The first thing to keep in mind if you’re even thinking about visiting us, is that we are super excited to meet you!

Every student and teacher at the Hudson Yoga Project can remember what it was like to be a beginner, and we’re always happy to help anyone who’s looking to get started. Plus, that means there’s another new friend for us to meet. 🙂

That being said, here are some tips to help you feel ready to go for your first class:

1. Sign up online.

This is definitely not mandatory, but it can be helpful. Signing up in advance guarantees your space in the class and also allows you to fill out the necessary paperwork in advance. That way, once you arrive at the studio you can focus on getting settled to practice rather than filling out a bunch of forms.

2. Come hang with us a little early.

Sometimes you’re in a rush and get to the studio right before class starts, and that’s totally fine. But, if you can, it’s great to get to the studio 15-minutes before class. This will give us time to chat, make sure you have plenty of time to get changed, put your shoes/phone away, etc.  If you’re running a little late though, just give us a call and we’ll put a mat down for you– stress free is the way to be!

3. Need a mat?

The mat is on us for your first visit! After that, we offer Lululemon mats to rent for $2.

4. Get your props.

Props are our favorite and they’ll become your favorite too {trust us!}. Once you lay your mat down in the yoga room, be sure to grab the props you’ll need for class– definitely 2 blocks and 1 blanket, and then anything else the teacher asks you to use that day.  

5. Enjoy class, and then sign up again!

Your first class can be a bit of a blur and we want you to have some time to take it all in. If you’re on an intro pack with us, you’ll have 2 more classes to go. We recommend signing up for your second class before you leave the studio.

Our team will probably ask you how class was for you {and if they don’t feel free to tell them anyway!}.  Be honest. If you are looking for something easier or harder than the class you took, let us know! We’re sure we can find something that’s a better fit.

HOW DO I KNOW WHICH LEVEL YOGA CLASS I SHOULD TAKE?

Making sure you choose the right level yoga class is definitely going to help make the class way more fun. Think of it like math— you wouldn’t take Advanced Calculus before knowing your algebra.

The names and levels of classes can be different between studios, so we want to make sure you fully understand what to expect in ours. Click here to take our quiz and find out which class is best for you today.

WHAT IF I NEED TO CANCEL MY CLASS?

No problem! We have a 4 hour cancellation policy. So, as long as you cancel 4 hours before the class your class will be credited back to your account and you won’t get charged the fee. If you cancel after 4 hours and you’re on a class package, that class will be deducted from your account. If you’re on an Unlimited Monthly or Annual membership with us, you’ll be charged a $15 fee for late-cancels or no-shows.

Of course, we understand that things come up. So your first time with a late cancel is a freebie! 🙂

WHAT’S THE BEST WAY TO GET IN TOUCH WITH YOU?

You can call us at 201.850.1104 or email namaste@hudsonyogaproject.com. Make sure to also follow us on Instagram @hudsonyogaproject and join our email list for class updates + info.

WHAT IS THE MINIMUM AGE REQUIRED TO TAKE A CLASS?

You must be 15 or older in order to take class with us. 

WHAT DO I DO IF I NEED TO CANCEL MY MEMBERSHIP?

We’re always sad to see someone have to cancel a membership, but know that it happens. Once you’ve fulfilled the minimum term of your membership contract, you just need to submit your cancellation request in writing 15 days before your next auto-payment is scheduled to run and we’ll put that cancellation through. 

For example, if you’re next bill is set to take place on May 1st, you’d need to cancel by April 15th. If you cancel after April 15th, your final payment will bill on May 1st and your cancellation will be processed for June 1st.
