Frequently Asked Questions
Welcome to Rubber Soul! Below are answers to frequently asked questions and studio policies that will be helpful to know when you arrive at the studio.
WHAT TYPE OF CLOTHING SHOULD I WEAR?
You will want to wear comfortable clothes that are easy to move in. You may bring water to have in the lobby to enjoy before or after class. There is a restroom at the studio and a place to change clothes as well.
WHAT LEVEL ARE YOUR YOGA CLASSES?
Most classes offered are appropriate for beginners and those who are resuming a yoga practice. Each instructor has a bio on this site describing their individual class. Things that are labeled gentle or restorative are particularly wonderful ways to begin a regular practice. If you have any questions about the class or injuries you have had in the past, please chat with your instructor prior to the start of class.
HOW DO I FIND THE STUDIO?
We are located in the Leathers Building at 675 Pulaski St, suite 1400. Our door is on the left at the top of the last staircase on the railroad track side of the building. Please park either beside the building or in the dirt strip beside the tracks. Please do not block the asphalt right of way when you park.
WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE FOR CLASS?
Plan to arrive about 10-15 minutes before your class begins. This gives you enough time to get settled, find your spot and relax a bit before class starts. The class will begin and end promptly and the door will be locked at the start of class. If you arrive late and the door is locked, we have begun. Please don't knock on the door and please do come back another time!
WHAT SHOULD I DO ONCE I ARRIVE FOR CLASS?
When you come in the instructor will be at the front waiting to greet incoming students, you will sign in, make your donation (or confirm your online donation or membership), and leave your shoes and personal belongings in the front room shelving. You can then get your props as your instructor specifies and make your way to the yoga room with your mat. You will want all the props prescribed for your class, but feel free to grab extra props for yourself as well if they are part of your practice. You are welcome to borrow a yoga mat from the studio, which will be cleaned and hung to dry in the studio after class. Your instructor will help you with this the first time.
OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
There are no cell phones in the yoga room. Cell phones are a distraction to yourself and others and are best left on silent with your belongings.
After class, please take the time to savor the post yoga glow as you put your props away neatly, chat with fellow yogis, and drift out of the studio. We will often offer hot tea, so please feel free to stay and enjoy a mug with friends. Our space is dedicated to community, and we love our yogis. Please come often and bring your friends. We will be delighted to see you!
