New to yoga?
Are your classes good for people who haven't done yoga before?
Yes! Our studio is the ideal place to start yoga. Our teachers are extremely knowledgable and class sizes are small. We teach yoga, we don't just lead a large group of students through a series of poses.
The props will help you develop full range mobility and strength in the spine, hips and shoulders so you can practice yoga with lower risk of injury and with better alignment.
Do I have to be flexible to do yoga?
No. If you practice consistently you will gradually become more flexible. Mobility depends on developing strength and flexibility in all your joints and is influenced by your anatomy.
New to the studio?
If you are new to the studio, please plan to arrive 15 minutes early to park, find the studio and meet your teacher. If the studio is open before the class, feel free to set up your mat and relax.
I am an experienced yogi. Do I need to start with a beginner-friendly class?
Due to the system of yoga at the studio (Critical Alignment Yoga and Therapy) , experienced yoga practitioners should start with a beginner level class to familiarize themselves with the props and important movement connections.
If you are a motivated practitioner with good body awareness you can transition to Experienced-level classes after a couple of beginner classes, after you feel comfortable with the big props.
You will be learning a different way of moving into asana and addressing preference patterns and there will be a learning curve, even if you have practiced yoga for many years.
Are there change rooms/washrooms?
Back to Mobility is a small learning atelier. Our focus is on critical alignment yoga , smaller class sizes and superb massage therapy services. For this reason our studio space is small and intimate.
We have 2 washrooms where you can change, and a small changing cubby in our coat room.
Can I bring my bag or a water bottle into class?
Because we have a small studio space that is filled with clients and props- please no personal belongings in the studio.
Most clients find that a sip of water before class and rehydrating afterwards is all that is needed, but of course you can bring a water bottle if you need.
If I'm running late, can I slip into class?
If you are running late and have signed in your prop station will be set up for you. You can slip in up to 10 minutes late.

Questions about pain and injury
I have back pain or other significant pain. Can I use the props?
If you have concerns please book a private session to get started. That's the best way to address your individual needs.
Do the props hurt?
Most people find their first experiences on the props quite strong and perhaps uncomfortable. It takes time for the body to adapt to the props and learn to relax.
People who are prone to back pain may experience pain during or after their first classes. Usually students are aware of what sorts of things flare up their pain. We encourage you to respect these feelings and approach the work slowly.
It is almost universally true that what students first find most intense and uncomfortable later becomes what they most enjoy, crave and benefit from.
