Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What exactly are the differences between hot, warm, and non-heated classes?
    • Non-heated classes at Longevita are typically in an ambient temperature of 68-73 degrees. Warm yoga and Hot Sculpt classes will be held in the Hot Room with the thermostat set to 85-90 degrees. Hot yoga classes will be held in the Hot Room with the thermostat set to 102-107 degrees. Please note that hot (or even warm) classes may not be suitable for pregnant clients, anyone with unregulated hyper- or hypotension, or those with a history of heat exhaustion. Please speak with the teacher before class regarding these circumstances.
    • Longevita offers heated yoga classes; however, we are not a Bikram Hot Yoga studio. While Bikram created a very popular hot yoga class involving a strict 26-posture sequence, it is important to note that this is just one example of hatha-style practice. Hatha is not limited to being a Bikram style of class. Teachers at Longevita may incorporate poses similar to this popular 26-posture sequence, but are not restricted at all in their sequencing design.
  2. What can I expect in class?
    • Each teacher at Longevita brings their own unique style, background and tradition to their class, which provides diversity to your workouts and yoga practices. To learn more about each of our teachers, click here.
  3. Will the yoga classes be too difficult for me if I am new(er) to yoga?
    • Most yoga classes at Longevita are intended for all levels. Those new(er) to yoga are encouraged to attend any/all of our Yoga Fundamentals classes to build strength and muscular endurance while refining alignment to be better prepared for our flow, power flow, or intermediate yoga classes.
    • In flow, power flow, or intermediate yoga classes instructors may include opportunities to practice for inversions and arm balances, developing your practice on a new level – whether practicing full inversions and arm balances, or working on preparatory postures and strength building for future inversions and arm balances in your practice. Please note inversions and arm balances may not be suitable for pregnant clients, or those with certain chronic neck, shoulder, or back injuries or certain heart conditions. Please speak with the teacher before class regarding these circumstances.
  4. Will the strength & conditioning classes be too difficult for me if I am new(er) to working out?
    • Most strength & conditioning classes at Longevita are intended for all fitness levels. Those new(er) to strength training are encouraged to attend Functional Strength Training to establish healthy movement patterns and strong core stability before moving onto Barre, TRX®, Hot Core, or Hot Sculpt classes.
    • In all of our strength & conditioning classes, it is easy to adjust exercises to your own level of difficulty and ramp up when necessary. You determine how hard or how easy you really want to work.
  5. Will the Pilates classes be too difficult for me if I am new(er) to Pilates?
    • Most Pilates classes at Longevita are intended for all levels. Those new(er) to Pilates are encouraged to attend Pilates Mat classes to develop strong core stability and healthy movement patterns. Those new to the Pilates Reformer should attend our Saturday morning Beginning Reformer class to familiarize yourself with the equipment before attending our other Group Reformer classes.
  6. I am managing chronic pain (or recovering from a long-term injury). So, where do I start?
    • We suggest contacting the studio to book private sessions prior to attending any mixed-level group classes.
  7. Can my children attend classes?
    • Children 14 and older are welcome to join any of our non-heated classes, and those 16 and older are also welcome to join our warm and hot classes, with parent permission. We do not recommend heated classes for children under the age of 16, or those with certain heart conditions or history of heat exhaustion.
