New to YogaBalance

You are currently not on our ACTUAL website. I've copied our FAQ's here for new students to YogaBalance. Please also read the INFO page.

Are you a complete beginner and unsure which class to enroll in? Click here.

1. Where are you located: Please see the FIND US tab of the website for details about locations, free parking and maps to help you find your way without stress.

2. How do I signup for a class?
Please go the Booking tab and click on date/class you desire. The system will prompt you to create an account and buy a pass. Buy the Explorer's pass for first time students. Although you can enroll at any time up until the class start time, classes are subject to cancellation for low pre-reservations. To help this not happen, it would be great if you would please reserve 24hrs in advance when possible.

3. Do I need to create an account first?
We encourage you to create an account and buy the 'First time Students Promo: 3 classes for 40€ with PayPal, Visa or make a bank transfer to LU08 0141 4597 4640 0000 BIC: CELLLULL YogaBalance SARL-S.

4. Can I come to try once before creating an account?
Please see above.

5. Are there showers available?
Sorry, there are no showers.

6. Where do I change my clothes?
There is an open space at the back of the studio where you can change your clothes or many people use the WC/bathroom stalls.

7. I don't own a mat. Do you have them for rent?
We want to discourage you from buying a mat from a sports store or online. Most are not true yoga mats and are very slippery, shorter, too thin or too thick. Wait and save your money! A yoga mat is a personal preference and you must try them out first to find the one that works best for your hands and knees. We have mats available for use free of charge for the first months. Please feel free to try all the mat styles and retry to find the one that you like the best before buying. We sell mats at the studio that are cheaper than what you find online for the same mat.

8. I'm nervous to come to my first class, I don't want to be the only one not knowing what to do.
We now offer 'BEGINNER'S YOGA' for complete beginners. Other recommended classes for beginners are Hatha, Yin&Yang or BarreYoga. Know that there are new students starting all the time, every day. The person next to you in class might have just started too. We don't teach too fast, so you will be able to follow along just fine. And after a couple of classes you will know the basics and feel very comfortable. You may start at any time you like in the year!

*Please wait until you have attended 10+ classes before coming to Vinyasa Flow - it is quite sporty and requires a basic foundation.

9. I have a lot of back pain. I hear from my doctor and friends that yoga will help. I'm scared I will make it worse, what do you suggest?
It is our experience as teachers that yoga can prevent and relieve back pain, or any pain in the body as long as the student goes slowly and doesn't push it in the beginning. If you feel any sharp pain, back out of the posture. Keep all your backbends very small/low as a beginner or anyone that has back issues. Make your focus about building strength, not flexibility, that will come in time. Overtime you will see how a yoga practice will change your life for the good and you will wonder how you ever lived without yoga! Also try our Self-Massage/MFR class.

10. I'm not flexible so yoga is not for me!
Hey, we all have to start somewhere. When you don't stretch you become more stiff over time. As you age, this stiffness creates lower back problems and you are at a higher risk of getting hurt while playing sports or picking up something heavy. Likely you sit in a chair most of the day, your core strength is lacking, your muscles are tight, your posture is poor, so you have back and neck pain. It is important to spend time stretching and strengthening to counterbalance this western lifestyle. Running/walking, playing sports might keep your cardio health in good shape but you are likely neglecting your core, small stabilizer muscles, movement of your spine so you continue to have pain. Give yoga a try for 2 months and see how it can help you!

11. My mind is racing all the time, even in yoga class! What do I do?
Be patient with yourself, it takes time to train the monkey mind ;-). Make your focus about aligning the postures then pay attention to your breathing. Counting your breaths, noticing every inhale and exhale. When your mind wonders away, thinking about what you will have for dinner that night or the list of to-dos, don't get angry just redirect your mind back to the present moment and breath awareness. With lots of practice you will be able to have a calmer mind and feel more relaxed. There are many good books and podcasts on Mindfulness, ask one of the teachers for recommendations.

12. Do you offer any Discounts?
Please see details at the bottom of the PRICING page. We are a partner of Sympass.
