What do I need to bring to an English Yoga Berlin class? Do you have mats, props, blankets? etc.
We have all of the props you will need at the studio for use free of charge. Please note: Due to the corona virus, we recommend that you bring a clean towel to place on top of the studio mats or your own yoga mat to practice on. Some people may also prefer to use a warm sweater for the relaxations instead of the blankets.
I’ve never done yoga before. Can I come to your class?
All of our classes are open to beginners. Just make sure you arrive 15min early, so you can talk to the teacher, explain any health concerns or injuries you may have, fill in a registration form and get used to the space. We recommend that you try various kinds of yoga when you first begin a regular practice, so you can find a style that suits you and a teacher with whom you feel comfortable.
What kind of yoga is right for me?
You can read more about the different kinds of yoga we offer here. Generally, the Vinyasa Flow classes are faster and you may work up a sweat, the Hatha Yoga classes are slower, with longer-held poses and more time for relaxation, the Tantric Yoga classes give you a good grounding in traditional yogic practices and breathing exercises. But if you have never been to our studio before, we recommend that you try out each teacher and / or style as yoga styles can be so different from teacher to teacher.

Can I just drop by a class tonight?
Yes, you are welcome to come tonight! Our classes are limited to ten people and some classes get quite full, so make sure you come early enough to get a space–we recommend coming between 20 and 25min early for evening classes.
How do I book a private class?
We do offer private classes. Please write us an email with the details of when you would like your class, what style of yoga you are interested in, whether you have a mat and if you want the class offered at our studio or at your home. Cancellations within 24 hours before the start time will be charged half the agreed-upon rate for the class.
Do you have a reduced rate for unemployed or lower-income people?
Yes, you can see our options for lower-income participants here.
I’m a yoga teacher. Do you have any openings?
At the moment, we are not looking for new teachers. If you’re interested in English Yoga Berlin, and would like to get to know us and become part of our community, we encourage you to come to our classes and introduce yourself. Click here for a blog we wrote offering advice to new teachers looking for work.
Is your space available for rent?
Our space is NOT available for rent to external teachers for workshops or regular classes.
Can I reserve a spot for a specific class?
If you want to pre-book a space, you need to buy a 5er card and pre-book at the studio with a teacher. When you pre-book, make sure the date and time works for you, because cancellations are not possible. After you have completed a 5er card, you can become a monthly student and have a space reserved for you every week.
If I miss a reserved class, can I recuperate it another time?
As a monthly student, you have the chance to recuperate your missed class in another regular weekly class by the same teacher within the same calendar month. Recuperations are not possible in special classes or workshops. And recuperations cannot be reserved in advance.
With a 5er card: if you miss a pre-booked class on your 5er card, a recuperation is not possible.
