BYSurrey's class challenges aren't meant as competitions and shouldn't leave you feeling defeated. It is just a way for us as a group at the studio to keep motivated and reinvigorate our practices. Ideally most people will do at least one class daily for the duration of the challenge. Challenges will also include guest passes, deals to keep you motivated past the challenge and invitations to all our special "off schedule" classes. If you already have a yearly pass, there are no added fees to join the challenge.
Expired classes from a regular class card may be used without any fees during the BYSurrey Amnesties; in Summer, from the first Monday of June until Labour Day and in winter from the first Monday in December until the first Monday in January. Expired BYSurrey class cards may otherwise be reactivated for 120 days for $2 per class. All expired classes must be extended together. Our extension option may only be used once per package. Please ask at the studio for more details.
Everybody has a first class.
You do not need a reservation to attend class at BYSurrey but you should plan for your first class.
You must over the age of 16 to practice at BYSurrey and if you are under the age of 18 you will also need the signed consent of your parent or legal guardian.
First off, know where we are! We are not visible from the street.
Please check the images and map in our "Contact" section to make finding us easy.
Most people consider our Traditional class to be a beginner class but students new to yoga will also be comfortable in the Arrow, Yin and Kundalini classes.
Be at least 15 minutes early for your first class. You will have to fill out the waiver (get a head start and download the PDF here), settle up and settle in.
Read the tips below to make it a little easier on yourself and then just show up!
Consume a minimum of 1 litre of water sometime before class but not so soon before class that you will need a washroom break during class. Arrive on an empty stomach.
Wear clothing that you will feel comfortable sweating in and that is neither too tight nor so loose that it will get in the way. Men will likely feel most comfortable in just a pair of shorts and women might feel best in shorts and a sports bra-top. Shorts cut above the knee will ensure better mobility and the freedom to bend easily. Prepare to be challenged with your first class. Dedicate yourself to your entire class. And, above all, be open to a new experience and a new understanding of your body. If you have your own mat, please bring it, along with some water, a large towel to use during class, and one if you would like to shower before and/or after class. Blocks, straps and dowelling may be used in the Yin class only. Mats ($2) and towels ($1) are available for rent. Bring a water bottle to fill with free filtered water from our studio's water cooler.
Although our Kundalini and Yin classes are cooler than other classes, the biggest challenge for most people is the heat.
In hot yoga we build the heat up in the body at the start of class. Generally your first water break will be called. Try not to drink water before the break and avoid coming out of postures to drink, wipe or fidget. During class it is common to feel a bit dizzy or even somewhat nauseous. If this happens please lie down. Try to keep still and refrain from wiping yourself or fidgeting. As part of your yoga discipline, stay in the room and rejoin the practice when you are ready.
Listen carefully for instructions on proper set up and safe alignment. Classes are mixed level so although you may follow what other students are doing, be mindful to stay within the safe limits of your own practice. Don't worry if you don't quite understand all the postures or feel overwhelmed. Keep your mind calm and your breathing relaxed. It's only your first class.
After class, plan to spend some time in the room relaxing and enjoying your accomplishment. Plan to cool down and rinse off with a shower. Keep well hydrated and be aware that you've sweat a lot and may need some salts or electrolytes especially if you are not used to sweating or generally consume a lot of caffeine, sugars or smoke. Listen to your body. You may feel energized or that you need a nap.
Touch base with the front desk or the teacher before going. Ask questions you may have and then make sure you have everything (including your BYSurrey membership card) before leaving. We'll try to follow up with you with a phone call but if you have any questions, do not hesitate to call us.
Drink lots of water, eat well and sleep well. Plan your next class.
Hopefully by the next day, something amazing will have happened. You just feel better! Maybe you had the best night's sleep you've had in a while; maybe you've never had more energy or maybe you feel relaxed and open or maybe you are just looking forward to another challenging class. But even if you don't feel like any of that, stay committed to coming again the next day. Your next class will be a lot smoother. It won't seem as long and you'll feel a little more confident. Hopefully you can try another class and/or another teacher. Take advantage of our intro pass and come as often as you can.
