How can I reach you?
E-mail [email protected] or text/call 919-502-0108. (Note that you will land in voice mail if you call; we do not have a phone in the studio space for sound reasons.) You can click through to directions to the studios here—Carrboro, Durham, Hillsborough—and from the footer at the bottom of every page.
Eek! Is my class pass/gift card going to expire during the COVID shutdown or before I am ready to come back in?
No! We have no expiration on pass cards or gift cards.
Cool. What are your COVID policies?
Read up on what we’re doing for you and what we need you to do for others at our COVID policy page.
I am moving—can I get a refund on my remaining passes?
As per your receipt, class passes are nonrefundable. However, they never expire and they are transferable, so if you would like to give (or sell) them to a friend, write us with your friend’s name.
Can I use my class pass for online yoga?
We have dozens of classes to stream online, but the system is siloed at a different business, completely separate from the studio, so your in-person passes don’t work. We still hope you’ll give these online classes a try!
I’m new to yoga. Where should I start?
Great! Check out our New to Yoga page—don’t be shy!
When should I arrive?
Our doors open 10 minutes before each class starts. We close and lock the main door when class begins, so budget a few minutes to arrive early.
Where should I park? Rack my bike?
You can park anywhere in the South Green development. If the lot in front of our building is full, park behind the orthodontist’s office, to the right of the driveway as you enter. The covered bike corral is near our space, in front of Craftboro Brewing Depot.
There is a lot for our building on the south side of Hunt Street, facing the long side of the building, as well as ample street parking. After 5 p.m. and all day on weekends, you are welcome to park at the Durham Senior Center lot, directly across the street from our building. You’ll find bike racks on the east end of the building (to the right when you are facing the long side of the building, on Hunt).
You are welcome to park downstairs, along the street, or on the grassy lot to the right of the driveway. Please don’t block that lot, though, as we need it for overflow on weekend mornings.
What should I bring?
Please bring your own mat and wear your mask. If you have props you like to use, bring those, too.
What should I wear?
Something comfortable that lets you move around freely and that doesn’t bunch up around your face if you expect to get upside down. We have bathrooms for changing if you’re coming right from work.
Is your studio hot?
No. We offer room temperature yoga and, in classes where it’s appropriate, guide you to build internal heat. In Sanskrit, we call this internal heat tapas—it’s different from the Spanish meaning!
How should I register?
We now require that you sign up in advance online. Registration closes two hours before class start time. Because mat space is extremely limited, we allow cancellations (in which your class credit reverts to your account) up to 24 hours before class start time. Within 24 hours, your account will be charged for the class.
You can use the MindBody app on your mobile device if you prefer:
Should I eat before class?
Not too much! There are many fantastic local eateries in walking distance to enjoy after class in Carrboro and in Durham.
Can I bring my kids?
Kids 13 and up are welcome in our adult classes. For younger kids, 10–12, please discuss with the teacher; if kid, teacher, and parent are on board and there’s an adult taking class with the child, they are welcome. Check out our kids’ yoga offerings, too.
For liability reasons, we don’t allow children to wait in the studio or in the lobby while classes run.
If I sign up online and can’t make it, what should I do?
Click Manage Schedule at the top of the page—you can cancel from there up till 24 hours in advance.
I’m a teacher. Are you hiring?
When we hire, we like to choose from among the folks who have been practicing at the studio regularly, as they understand the studio culture and student needs. We definitely extend our $15 student/teacher rate to yoga teachers!
I’m in yoga teacher training. Can I observe a class?
We find that a nonparticipating student changes the class dynamic, so we do not allow class observations. If you’d like to see how our wonderful staff teach, you can find dozens of classes with them to stream at Yoga Vibes.
