Hey, I am only human.  Occasionally emails sneak past me because I get so many of them everyday.  Just send a second email along.  If you don’t hear from me within 12-24 hours then definitely send it again.   Email to info@bodytempyoga.com.  

Yes, we sure do.  Mat and towel rentals are $3 each. 

HOWEVER, if you end up registering for our CORE PLUS MEMBERSHIP rentals go down to $1 each. 

CORE VIP MEMBERSHIP gets free mat/ towel rentals.

Come to class hydrated.  If you know you sweat a lot you might want to look into purchasing supplements that help you stay hydrated in a heated environment like S! Caps or Osmonutrition.  The heat is most definitely dehydrating your body so come prepared knowing that.  Chadd highly recommends a hydrating supplement for every class.

What to bring:

  • water (ideally with some sort of hydrating supplement)
  • mat & towel (we rent them for $3 each)
  • change of clothes (you’re going to sweat big time)
  • wear whatever makes you feel comfortable in a group setting.  Just know you will sweat through those clothes.
  • your awesome self

You have the self-given permission to leave class whenever you like.  We will never hold clients hostage in a heated environment.  We will never judge you for leaving early.  Your health is our number one concern.  IT’S OKAY TO LEAVE EARLY.  We only ask that you leave when people aren’t in the middle of a pose.  

If you go to our Hot Classes page you’ll get a pretty good idea of what classes work for your needs and interests.

If you’re brand new then we suggest beginning with the Warm Yin or Bikram classes.  The Hot Power and Sculpt classes are way intense and could be too much too soon if you’re not used to moving in the heat.

Our suggestion is no matter what class you go to, allow your body the time to acclimate to the heat.  This could take 2-5 classes (or even more).  Don’t force yourself through the classes.  If you feel even the slightest bit dizzy or exhausted SIT DOWN and drink some water.  Take a break.  Give yourself the permission to chill out for a moment.

Just make sure to:

• arrive hydrated and bring or purchase water at the studio

• give yourself the permission to take it easy in the beginning

• give yourself the permission to leave early, especially in the beginning.  Even just a little time in the heat helps your body adapt.  We don’t hold you prisoner!

• bring a mat and towel and be prepared to sweat.  You can rent a mat & towel for $3 each.

Body Temp has 2 studios located directly across the street from one another.  You’re probably at the wrong studio.  Simply go across the street and voila! there’s your class.

We do everything within our power to accommodate everyone.  We realize life in the city is hectic and occasionally traffic gets between you and your yoga practice.  We cannot guarantee that you’ll get in if you show up 1 minute late as some of our classes do not have a reception person (ie. the early 6am) and if no one is behind the desk we need to lock the door for the safety and security of everyone. 

Yes.  There is plenty of parking in front of and around the Body Temp studios.  Just out front is metered 4 hour parking.  A couple of blocks west towards the Presidio and around the neighborhood is free 2 hour parking.  There is also a parking lot just a few blocks away at 2055 Chestnut St, San Francisco, CA 94123.

 

We’re sorry but we cannot make exceptions to storing bikes in the studio.  We work hard to maintain a clean space.  If you forgot your bike lock we have an extra one you can use outside.

Yes.  If you have your own lock then we suggest you bring it.  We do lock the door once class begins if no one is out in the reception area.  We also have camera in the space to guard against theft.

Alas, no.  The entire building would require a complete structural overhaul in order to accommodate showers.  We are a small studio snugged in the middle of the Marina district neighborhood in a building shared by a laundromat and a dentist.  Such an overhaul would be unbelievably expensive.  Believe me, it was the VERY first thing we looked into when we took over the space.

We currently do not.  There are enough penalties out there in the world today.  We don’t want to add yet another burden.  But we do kindly ask you cancel if you’re not going to make it.

The easiest way is to download our new Body Temp mobile app (download address coming soon)  or you can do it online through your account via either mindbody or the www.bodytempyoga.com website. 

We make this as easy as possible for you.

Email Chadd at info@bodytempyoga.com and he will cancel the autopay.  Only minimum time needed to cancel is any time BEFORE the upcoming charge.  If the charge went through already and you want a refund we will charge you a $25 service fee for the refund.

You should always try your very best to show up on-time.  15 minutes before the start of class is ideal.  We understand that city life is hectic and San Francisco really loves getting in the way of us and our yoga practice!  Showing up late habitually is a big no-no, however.  We have some very crowded classes and if you do show up late then you run the very probable risk of not getting in.  We will not stop the yoga class just to rearrange the room in order to accommodate a late person.  We are willing to work with life’s unexpected moments but there’s a point where the habitual lateness can’t really be tolerated.  We try to cultivate a feeling of mutual respect between everyone. So, yes, sometimes we are late and we hope that everyone in the room can have some compassion for the latecomer.  But at the same time, the latecomer needs to have compassion for everyone else in the room and not disturb their practice.

You can practice yoga. In fact, we do strongly encourage this. However, you should have a chat with us before your first class. You may have to approach the sequence in a slightly different way than everyone else and you may only be able to practice one part of the class. You should also, of course, consult your doctor first and foremost and if your case is a bit more extreme we would love to work with you and your doctor on a safe approach for you.

Long answer.  Your practice is your own and ultimately only you can decide that for yourself.  Having said that, 3 times a week is a great start.  For some people this is enough for them to unwind the daily, weekly, and monthly accumulated stress in their lives.  Some people can’t live happily without doing 5 to 7 classes a week.  With the variety of classes we offer at Body Temp, you may find over time that you may want to practice more than 2 to 3 times a week.  Then again, a weekly Yin class maybe all you need to reset your body and mind.  Short answer.  3 to 4 times a week.  The more classes you do, we strongly suggest going for a variety of practices instead of being married to one method.  Your body, mind, and breath will thank you!

This answer is a pretty big one so please click here to visit our page on Infrared Heat.

Our all-levels Basic Hot Yoga classes are set at 101°F. As these classes are non-flow the higher heat setting helps to soften the muscles and elevate the heart rate. As you may notice we are less hot than your standard Bikram or Hot Yoga studio. Our infrared heating helps create a deeper sweat without necessitating a higher temperature. This means you can sweat more and not feel as hot when you practice!

Our dynamic Power and Sculpt classes are set at 95°. As these classes are a flow the body builds a lot of it’s own heat so the higher temperature setting would not be beneficial to the yoga practice. Believe us when we say you’ll sweat as much if not more in these lower temperature classes than in our Basic Hot classes.

Our Yin class is set at room temp. The reality of the temperature in the room is probably more like 80°F to 85°F even with windows open. This is due to the carry-over from the previous hot classes. We do try our best to get the Yin temperature down to as close to 75° as we can. Yin is supposed to be practiced in a cooler environment. The Yin Yoga brings necessary balance to our Yang lifestyle!

No problem. We can have a consultation before your first class. You can give us a call or just show up and one of our staff will have a chat about you and your injury. We may strongly suggest one form of yoga over another and we’ll give you an informed reason as to why. We have modifications for every posture we teach so it won’t be a big deal if you have a knee or back or shoulder or abdomen issue.  We want the yoga to work for you. You’re not here to work for some teacher’s preconceived notion of what yoga should be because we believe that you ARE the yoga. If a posture is hurting you then we have to find some sort of modification or alternative to make the posture therapeutic.

Hmmm. Oh wait. That’s us! We never, ever force people into postures. We don’t keep students hostage by not allowing people, often full-grown adults, to not leave the room. Why? Well, it’s illegal for one thing. And it’s not yoga. Leaving early is in no way disrespectful to anybody else. We’re not going to make any assumptions at where you’re at physically or emotionally on any given day. Our teaching is informative, upbeat, and compassionate.
