Hard AF?!

  • The perfect amount of challenging for a regular yogi.

  • Some moves were more “uncomfortable” than others, but options were given.

Classified Information

  • Make sure to show up no less than 5 mins before class or else Yoga Vida may give away your spot.

  • Remove your shoes in the lobby.

  • Showers and lockers vary per location- call ahead!

  • Bring your own lock (no automatic locks).
