Do you have private yoga instruction?
Absolutely. Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us about yourself, if you have any prior yoga experience, and any injuries you may have so that we can tailor the experience for you. Private yoga sessions are perfect for beginners or student's looking to further their practice. The cost varies based on your needs and the instructor. An hour private session is $75 on average. Let us know if you would like to work with one of our incredible instructors one on one.
If I sign up and do not come will I be charged?
Yes. We ask that you cancel online or on the app, it only takes a moment. Thank you for understanding that this is necessary to protect the experience of all of our students.
Can I bring kids to class?
Your child must be 14 years or older to attend a regularly scheduled adult class. We feel that children benefit from yoga in different ways developmentally, mentally and physically at different stages of their lives. With this in mind we have yoga programming specifically for kids. Also please note that we do not allow kids to be unattended in our lobby.
See our schedule for kids classes!

What do I need to bring?
We have mats you can for a $1 rental fee. If you have a mat, please bring it, because our mats are first come first serve. Also bring some water if possible or fill your bottle at our filtering station. We have towels available to rent for $1 as well as water bottles for $1. We have all the props you might need so just bring yourself.
How should I dress?
You should dress comfortably, and you will be kicking off your shoes once you arrive in the lobby. We suggest a shirt that is fitted enough it won't fall over your head if you bend over. For your shorts or pants, just choose a pair that you can lift your leg up and not flash your neighbor.
I'm a beginner - what classes should I take?
We have Beginner/Yoga 101 classes multiple times a week, but you can also attend any of the classes that are named Gentle, Stress Relief, or Yin Yoga. Our Hot 26 classes are also open to beginners but in a heated room. These classes are not specifically for beginners, but are beginner level in difficulty. Once you take 2 or 3 of the beginner specific classes you will know if you feel comfortable and would like to increase the difficulty. You can then move into a Flow Level 1, then a Flow Level 2 or Hot 26, and finally into Power or Hot Power which are more advanced classes. No matter what you take the most important thing is to not take yourself too seriously. You may feel confused as you first learn, but trust us, that's completely normal.
What is Yoga Etiquette?
Here's a couple tips if you are new to yoga: Please be a few minutes early to your class. Once you enter the studio it is a place of relaxation so please no talking on your cell phone in the lobby. Please turn your cell phone on airplane mode during class and do not bring your phone into the studio. You will kick off your shoes in the lobby so no shoes are worn in the studios. We ask that you not wear any strong perfumes and if you tend to sweat a lot please bring a towel. As yogi's we strive for a clean, relaxing, and thoughtful environment.
What will happen on my first visit?
When you arrive let the desk staff know you are a new student. You will be given a form to fill out and be rung up if needed. Then we will let you know where everything is located. You will kick your shoes off and head into your studio where your instructor is available for any questions. Never hesitate to ask any Bella staff member a question, we want you to feel at home in our space.
Why is the new student special for a whole month and not one free class?
With over 35 instructors on staff, over 90 classes a week, and many different types of classes we want you to have the chance to truly experience yoga. Try out different classes and styles of yoga to find what's a fit for you. Once you know which instructors and classes you love the most, you will know where you would like to invest when you buy a package of classes. At $39 for a month of unlimited classes you are able to get much more than one free class.
One yoga class is often not reflective of what yoga can do in your life, we hope you'll take advantage of this special to dedicate yourself for 30 days, and by the end we guarantee you'll understand what all the fuss is about!
How do I sign up online after my first class?
After you sign up online or attend your first class we will have you in the system so you can use your email as your username. If you signed up in the studio first and not online then use your email as your username and hit "forgot my password" to set up your password for future sign ups. Come in early if you have any trouble or email us at email@example.com and we'll get right back to you.
What is meditation?
Meditation is the science of using breath and awareness to cultivate a calm focused energy that allows us to be in the present moment and re-define how we interact with our thoughts. Meditation utilizes specific breathing techniques to calm the nervous system, lower blood pressure, increase oxygenation, and still the mind. At Bella Prana meditation is foundational to everything we do. Because of this, you will experience breath coaching and varying amounts of meditation in every class. To allow you to grow further in this practice we offer multiple forms of meditation classes for you to choose from.
What is the difference between meditation classes?
Whenever you are curious about a class on our schedule you can select the name of the class and a description will open for you. For meditation here is a brief description of the styles available to you at Bella Prana.
Meditation 101 - In this monthly class you will learn the basics of how to sit and support your body, how to breath, and tips for visualization and relaxation. You will learn verbally from your teacher and then have time to practice.
Yoga Nidra - In Yoga Nidra you will lay back with props and blankets and be walked through a specific verbal guided meditation for about 45 minutes. This is also referred to as "yogic sleep" and provides a deep level of rest.
Guided Relaxation Meditation - During this experience a teacher will help you get comfortable with props and you will lay back and enjoy different visualizations and breath coaching . Yoga Nidra has a specific script and style, where guided meditations can be different experiences each time.
Reiki Meditation - Any class with Reiki means that you will be laying back and energy healers will use the energetic subtle body by hovering their hands over parts of the body to promote healing and the movement of stagnant energy.
