Frequently Asked Questions
How do I register for classes?The first step is to create an account. Once you have created an account you may register for classes online. For students who have never been to the studio before we recommend our introductory offer of one month unlimited yoga. This is an inexpensive way to experiment with all our different classes. Our studio uses a software known as MindBody. They offer an App for students which makes signing up for classes, purchasing classes and canceling classes very easy.
Do I have to register for classes?Yes. For zoom/virtual classes this is the only way to receive a link for class. You must also register online for all “Live” or in person events due to limited space. No walk-ins please.
How do I bring a guest?Guests are always welcome at the studio. If you would like to bring someone we recommend that you create an account with their name and email address. You may also call (717-336-5299) to register a guest if that is easier for you. Keep in the mind that some classes have limited space and spaces are given to those who are registered in advance.
What happens if I don’t use my classes within the allotted time I am signed up?All class packages have an expiration of one year. If you have a medical reason please contact the owner Suzanne Accardo 717-336-5299.
What happens if I need to cancel a Class?When you need to cancel a class we ask that you do it within one hour prior to the start of the class. This will allow others to sign up if there is a waitlist. It’s easy to cancel. Just check into the site online or with the MindBody App and cancel. If you don’t cancel within the one hour window you will be charged for the class.
Can my classes be transferred or shared with others?Zoom classes may be shared with the household. Live classes cannot be shared. It is also possible to set up your account to pay for someone else. For example, if you have a child that you would like to pay for we can adjust your account so you may do that. The other person still needs to have an account. Just call us at 717-336-5299. This must be done by the studio.
Weather Cancellation PolicyWhen in person classes or workshops are cancelled due to weather, students receive an email. Cancelled classes are indicated in red in the MindBody schedule. There are no make-ups provided for classes cancelled due to weather.
Where is the Yoga Place Located?The Yoga Place is located in the Bergstrasse Lutheran Church at 9 Hahnstown Road Ephrata. We are conveniently located at the intersection of 222 and 322 at the Ephrata Exit. Life Coaching and Grief Recovery are offered in person at the church location or online via zoom. Yoga Classes are offered online via zoom with a few classes beginning to be offered in person. We will be opening our new yoga studio in the summer of 2022 in the church.
Do you have Beginners Yoga?From time to time we offer beginners yoga classes or workshops but we do not have an ongoing beginner’s yoga class. Our Gentle yoga class or Gentle Chair Yoga are excellent choices for beginners.
Does The Yoga Place offer Children’s Yoga?At this time, we do not have yoga classes for children. We do however offer Private yoga sessions for children. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
Do you offer beginner yoga classes?We do not offer classes just for beginners. We do however have new people almost daily. All of our teachers are certified and well trained. They are excellent at incorporating new students into the classroom. If you feel you would be more comfortable beginning slowly we recommend the gentle classes or even a private session.
What Class Should I begin with?If you have no physical restrictions and currently exercise you can take any of our classes. If you are uncomfortable about being new to yoga you may be more comfortable with a Gentle or Peaceful Yoga Class. If you have physical restrictions such as being unable to bear weight on your knees or wrists you may prefer to begin with Relax and Restore. If you are looking for one on one attention and need specific modifications for poses you may prefer to start with a Private Session with one of our certified yoga instructors.
What should I bring to the studio?An open mind and the willingness to let go of tension!! You will need a yoga mat. Pilates and other types of gym mats do not work as well. Yoga mats prevent your feet from sliding and they are the perfect length. Yoga mats range in length, thickness and price. Please do not bring cell phones into yoga room. All phones must be turned off.
How to Sign Up for Online Yoga ClassesWe’re partnering with FitGrid (a fitness technology company) and Zoom (an online live-streaming service) to live-stream your favorite classes. Here’s how it works: Sign into your MINDBODY account (link in header & footer) and ensure that your email address is correct, and that you’ve opted in to receive emails from us. Set your email account so that messages from “firstname.lastname@example.org” always arrive in your inbox, and are never marked as spam. Here’s a guide for how to do this in for several popular email domains. View our class schedule online the same way you always do. Sign up for any class with “VIRTUAL” in the name and check out normally. You’ll receive a confirmation email from FitGrid soon after. Once you’re within 60 minutes of the class’ scheduled start time, you’ll receive another email from FitGrid with a unique link to access the live stream. Not seeing the email? Search your spam and promotions folders. Look for subject lines containing the phrase “live-stream link”. Make sure you are in a place with a good internet connection–otherwise, the stream may skip! Click your unique link a few minutes before class is scheduled to start. If you have the Zoom application on your device already, you’ll join immediately. If you do not have the Zoom application on your device, you’ll be prompted to download it.
