Are the classes suitable for all levels?
Y7 WeFlowHard™ vinyasa classes are challenging practices that demand a lot from the body. That being said, we welcome all levels to come and try out a class. Yoga is all about your personal journey on the mat. We have a “do what you can” philosophy. Our teachers will offer modifications and adjustments as needed. Our Slow burn classes are the most accessible to beginners, as they are an intense vinyasa taken at a slower pace, with longer holds and provide more opportunity for teachers to make individual adjustments as needed.
Am I ready for a Y7 class?
As long as you come with an open mind and good vibes, you are more than ready. Especially if you are at all nervous or fearful, stepping into the Y7 community will surely prove a very powerful experience for you.
What is the difference between WEFLOWHARD™ VINYASA and SLOWBURN?
Slowburn and WeFlowHard™ Vinyasa are flowing practices. In Slowburn we concentrate on getting deeper into muscle tissue by holding postures for longer periods of time. While there are still flow elements incorporated into the practice, it is not as fast paced as the WeFlowHard™ Vinyasa classes. Additionally, Slowburn is teacher-led throughout the class.
WE FLOW HARD™ VINYASA60 Minutes
Vinyasa is mindful movement. We flow through our sequences with intention, braiding postures together that will open, stretch and restore your body from the inside-out. Each class will help link breath and movement, deepen the connection of mind and body, and bring a greater consciousness to your subtle body. We will peel back the layers through a smart and safe yoga sequence, carefully choreographed to music that ranges from The Weeknd to Stevie Wonder. We ask that you come with an open mind, stripped of any and all expectations you carry of yourself, and take an hour-long vacation of body exploration, transformation and movement. All levels welcome.
WE FLOW HARD™ SLOW BURN60 Minutes
Different than Y7’s Vinyasa class, Slow Burn works toward not only reaching our edge, but surpassing it. This class is slower than a typical Y7 Vinyasa class, as the teacher guides you deeper and deeper into a carefully selected series of postures. We will focus on foundation and structure within our movement, while mindfully tackling some of the master asanas. With a deeper emphasis on both the necessity and support our breath allots us as practitioners, we will use pranayama to both inspire our movement and guide our mind. Although we aren’t flowing as fast, please come prepared to sweat, work, breathe and finally, to restore. This is a great class to take in the evenings when you’re ready to turn off and tune in. All levels welcome.
Our recommendation? Try out both classes and let us know what you like!
How much time should I give myself before class to arrive?
We recommend arriving 15 minutes before class to check in, set up your mat, talk with the instructor if need be and prepare yourself for practice. It also gives you a chance to meet other Y7 yogis. Trust us, this tribe is full of awesome people.
Do all the classes play hip-hop music?
All of our other classes are heavily influenced by the music, and part of the fun are the individual playlists curated by each teacher. You’ll certainly hear plenty of hip hop music, along with other heart-pumping, soul-inspiring beats. Since our Slowburn classes move more slowly with an emphasis on deeper breaths, the music played reflects the pace of the class.
How hot is the room?
Hot enough to make you sweat...a lot! Between 80-90 degrees.
Are all the classes heated?
Yes! All of our sweat-dripping, beat-bumping, candlelit classes are heated.
What do I wear?
Comfortable athletic clothes that allow you to flow hard. No shoes or socks inside of the yoga room. Extra points if you wear Y7 swag!
Is it safe to practice everyday?
This practice helps you to develop body awareness. If your practice is feeling strong, come as much as you like! The important thing is to give yourself one day of rest for your muscles to recover. Our practices are demanding on the body and make your muscles work, so be sure to listen to your body and take a rest when you need it.Also, be sure to drink plenty of water before and after practice. We recommend at least 32 oz. an hour before class.
What is the cancellation policy?
In order to give everyone a chance to flow, we require notice of cancellation 2 hours or more prior to class start time to avoid an $8 cancellation fee.
Do you allow drop-ins?
Of course! However, we do recommend signing up in advance.
