Frequently Asked Questions
It's my first time! What do I do?
Hooray for you! Please arrive 10-15 minutes early for your first class in order to give yourself plenty of time to check out the studio, meet our team members, set up your MindBody Online account, and sign our waiver. We have changing rooms, water, mats, and props available for use, free of charge.
Do I need to bring a mat?
Mats, blocks, bolsters, blankets, straps and ALL. OF. THE. THINGS. are provided for you here at the studio, free of charge. We also have filtered water, hot tea, and occasional smoothies to share with you. Just bring your sweet self and a willingness to do the work.
Which door should I enter?
We have two open-floor plan studios located in the same building, but with two separate entrances. Please double check your location on MindBody Online to verify whether your class will take place in The Loft (upstairs studio) or in The Cave (downstairs studio). When you are facing the front of the building, The Loft is on your far left entrance and The Cave is on your far right entrance.
Do you offer any discounts for special populations?
We are happy to offer Seniors 65+, Active Duty Military, Veterans, Full Time Students, School Teachers, and Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Teachers a 10% discount on any in-person purchase. Please show a valid ID to one of our lovely staff members next time you're in the studio.
Can my child attend a class without me?
We love when families practice yoga and meditation together! Children ages 7+ may attend class with a parent or guardian present. Please me mindful that our classes are tailored towards adults and everyone (you too parents!) attending should be mature enough to participate without disruption. Older minors may attend classes without a caregiver present after proper release. Regular class pricing applies to children. Please contact Betsy (firstname.lastname@example.org) for further questions or guidance.
For children eager to practice yoga and meditation that are not ready for Realignment Studio adult classes we encourage you to sign up for classes with our kids & family yoga specialty partner Breathing Space.
Do you offer prenatal or postnatal classes?
Prenatal & Postnatal women are welcome in our regular classes! Additionally, Realignment Studio has partnered with The Breathing Space and Fit4Mom Capitol Hill to provide you with prenatal, postnatal, kids and family yoga and wellness specific classes, all under one roof! Visit our partner’s websites for schedules, pricing, and registration.
Everybody panic! I'm running late to yoga/meditation!
Just blame it on the metro... :) We understand that your commute to our studio can be challenging. Please note that for security reasons, we lock the door 5 minutes after class starts. Teachers and Staff reserve the right to lock the door at class start time as a safety precaution. If you arrive within the 5 minute window and the door is locked, please ring the doorbell and wait a few moments for the teacher to let you in. After the first 5 minutes of class, there will be no late entry permitted. If you had pre-registered, please send us an email and we'll re-credit your account for the missed class. We will see you next time!
I love Realignment Studio so much that I just arrived super early for class! Let me in!
We love you too and can't wait to welcome you into our space! However, for safety and security reasons, our doors will remain locked until 15 minutes prior to start time. If there is a class wrapping up before yours begins, we may wait just an extra moment or two out of respect for their final closing OM. Thanks for understanding!
Can I pay you in cold, hard, cash?
Nope. Sorry! We are a 100% cash-less business. Please bring your credit or debit card for payment, or use your MindBody login or app to pre-register on your mobile device.
It's a holiday! Are you open?
Maybe! We often modify our schedule on the holidays. Always check our MindBody Online schedule to confirm today’s schedule and pre-register for your class!
I still have a question or two, how do I get in touch?
Please send us an email and we'll get back to you as soon as possible! Thank you!
