How It All Works

Pricing


Pre-Covid-19 our yoga classes were all free or by donation! We have added new offerings and now our classes are a mix of free, paid, and partially subsidized by us. Some classes and events provide as much as 50% of the proceeds to causes like covid-19 relief in India.
We invite you to check out the look + book section on our site to check out our offerings.




Weather and Cancellation Policy


We try our best not to cancel classes, but that being said, if the teacher feels it is not safe to do yoga due to the weather or air conditions, classes will be cancelled and your class credit will be refunded to use another time.




Class Reservations


Typically our free outdoor classes are drop-in and unlimited capacity, but due to COVID-19, while we are delighted at the opportunity to be able to continue our classes, certain adjustments have to be made. Please reserve your spot through our booking system. 2021 Schedule will be posted in the spring.




Class Updates & Schedule


Our schedule is subject to change. Check out the live schedule for subs, as well as find us on Instagram and Facebook for frequent updates and more! For big changes and class announcements, we have a mailing list! Sign up here. We only send emails for important things.




Smoke Policy


We will cancel class and your spot will be refunded if the air quality is not safe to do yoga.




Welcome


Our classes are designed for all skill levels, so if you’re new to yoga, or new to a certain style of yoga, you’re in the right place. Please wear comfortable clothes, bring your own yoga mat (or towel), and water.

Injuries:
Please report any relevant injuries or health conditions when you are signing the waiver before class. We’ll accommodate as best we can, but if you’ve had any recommendations from a doctor about certain exercises you should modify or avoid, always listen to your medical professional first.
Pregnancy: Pregnancy means that some poses need modifications and carry an increased level of risk. We encourage you to explore our increasing collection of family, pre-natal, baby & me, and kids classes. We have heard the demand and are focusing on growing this aspect accordingly! Explore: As you become more comfortable with the poses, terminology and style, try some different types of classes and some new teachers.​ Recommendations. All our classes are all levels. That being said, some class types are more difficult than others. A good class to start could be a slow flow or a quieter park like Riley Park our Main St. location.





Yoga Tips

Arriving


Please arrive at least 10 minutes before class to check in and set up your spot. This way you can be all settled when class starts.




How You Can Help Out


There are other ways (besides donations and tips) that you can help keep yoga free in Vancouver. To name a few: - Leave us a review on Google and/or Facebook. - Volunteer at our studio. - Tell your friends!




Being Earth Friendly


• bring a reusable water bottle • cycle, walk, transit or carpool to class • pick up any garbage you see in our yoga spots • take nothing but pictures, and leave nothing but footprints




Yoga Etiquette


Arrive Early: For most classes plan to set up about 15 minutes before class starts so you can get all settled in and ready for the start of class. Some classes may have unique instructions which you will find in the booking system (look + book tab) or require you to wait while another class finishes up. Walking Around: When walking around, avoid stepping directly on other yogi's mats and stuff. No Electronics: Refrain from using cell phones (or anything else that beeps or buzzes) during class, as to not interrupt those around you. Stagger Yourself: We often pre-space the mats with markers. If your class has no markers it is nice to stagger your mat so you aren't directly blocking the people behind you from their view of the teacher. Talking: You can chat before the class starts but no talking during the actual class. Clean Up: If you are attending an outdoor class, please respect the park and clean up after yourself. If it's an indoor class, we have spray bottles to clean your mat with at the end of class. If you borrowed a mat, wipe, then roll up your mat and stack it neatly back where you got it from. Socks or shoes? You actually don't need them! If you keep them on you might find that your feet don't grip into your mat properly, which can be dangerous. It's outdoor- so can I bring my loved one or friend to hang out while I take the class? Due to restricted gatherings and the limited people allowed in our classes with PHO orders we ask that loved ones capable of being alone sit seperate from the group. It's not that we mind your boyfriend waiting for you- we just need him to be about 1.5 metres away instead of 1.5. Loved ones who require supervision (for example kids and well behaved pets) are allowed to join their parents at no cost in most classes. We do ask that if your guest needs some extra help or space to dance or cry out their energy you remove them swiftly so everyone else isn't disrupted. If you are a regular student who would benefit from some flexibility for your personal situation please contact community@matcollective.com to discuss your situation and how we can accomodate you. Most importantly, take it easy, ask questions, and have fun!
