It’s my first visit! What do I need to know?

Welcome! We can’t wait to meet you! Please arrive 20 minutes prior to your first class so we can answer any questions you may have and make sure you’re all set to get your sweat/zen on! We sell mats and towels in our retail store just in case you need one.

What is The Blend?

The Blend is a seamless flow of the best of a vinyasa flow, a strengthening Pilates workout, and cardio to make you sweat – all wrapped up into a 60-minute class. Sliders, resistance bands, and small weights are added to ramp up the intensity, but they’re only there if you want them; otherwise, your body weight is enough to accomplish that post-workout glow!

What are the Benefits of The Blend?

This class is designed to warm the body up, lengthen and strengthen imbalances within the body to lead to a stronger, leaner, happier, and healthier you!

What is HIIT?

High-Intensity Interval Training. This is not a separate class but rather a component of The Blend. HIIT is a form of exercise in which short periods of demanding physical activity are alternated with less intense recovery periods. In short, it is cardio. It will get your heart pumping, burn calories, and make you sweat.

Do I need to be super fit?

No! We have the best instructors around, and they are very experienced in listening to what each group needs. They will provide the appropriate modifications to help you have the best experience in class.

What if I am not ready for the blend?

We offer many other stand-alone classes like Vinyasa Flow, Slow Flow Vinyasa, Mat Pilates, and Yin Yoga.

Do I need to be flexible to participate in the classes?

Absolutely not. In fact, inflexibility is the very reason why you should take our classes!

I’m a beginner - which style should I start with? OR is there a beginner class?

We all have to start somewhere, and we love beginners. Our recommendation is to start with Slow Flow Vinyasa. In this class, we take our time focusing on proper alignment and breathwork with fewer poses. Many former beginners come back to this class time and time again to slow the pace down and focus more on the mind-body connection.

What if I have injuries?

It is always recommended that you consult with your physician before beginning any type of physical expertise, especially if you are working with injuries. While we do provide modifications, our instructors’ advice cannot be compared to that of a medical doctor.

What should I bring to class?

Our studio is designed to make sure that from the moment you step through the front door, you can leave the day behind. All you need is a yoga mat and water (optional), and we will take care of the rest! All of the props and equipment you need for your class will be set out for you already.

How often should I go?

We suggest 2-5 times per week with a rest day or two in between. Our limited monthly package is designed in such a way that is not limited to only being able to attend classes a set number of times per week.

What if I’m pregnant?

It is never advised to begin a new type of workout while pregnant. That being said, if you are currently physically active and practice yoga and Pilates, you are more than welcome to take a class. The key here is to listen to your body now more than ever. Mat Pilates involves a lot of exercises laying on your back, so we recommend as you move into later trimesters that you move away from Mat Pilates and The Blend. Our Yin & Chill and Slow Flow classes may be just what you need as you enter your second or third trimester. Don’t forget, the other classes will be there for you post baby!

What do I do with my husband?

Bring him! This is not your average yoga studio. It will change his life as it has changed ours.

What if I’m late?

Out of respect and safety for your fellow guests and instructors, classes start on time. Doors will open 5 minutes prior to your class start time and will remain open for 5 minutes after the class starts. Once the studio doors close, any other latecomers will not be allowed in. We are firm with this policy because opening the studio door once it’s been closed disturbs the flow of the class and also puts guests who are stationed next to the door at risk of injury. Classes also begin with an introduction, including the proper form and technique that is required to be successful in the class. If you arrive late for your class, we would be happy to find a spot for you in the next class, if there are available spots. Your studio time is a gift to yourself – make time for you!

What’s your cancellation policy?

You must cancel class 6 hours in advance or you will lose a credit. For Unlimited Memberships, you will be charged a $15 fee for any late cancellations or no-shows. This includes switching time slots under the 6-hour notice time period. To cancel your booking, please access your account online. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact us at hello@theblendoc.com or 949-209-4475.

How does the waitlist work?

The waitlist is first come, first served. As soon as a spot opens up, you will be automatically enrolled up to 10 minutes before class start time. You can remove yourself from the waitlist at any time without penalty. Once you are enrolled, our standard no-show / late cancellation policy will apply. If you do not wish or intend to take the class, don’t forget to remove yourself from the waitlist or you will be automatically enrolled
