FAQ

What is Modo Yoga?

Modo Yoga is a community of independent hot yoga studios, guided by our 6 Pillars, united by our love for yoga, and dedicated to creating a more sustainable world. With 60+ locations across North America & Europe – every studio is a place for all. We welcome all bodies and all abilities, whether you are a beginner or an experienced student.

What are Modo Yoga classes like?

All Modo Yoga classes are built on the foundation of our Modo series – a dynamic system of postures and breathing exercises specifically designed to be practiced in the heat. Modo classes are accessible to all, from beginners to advanced students. A typical Modo class will have around 40 postures. Each class is intended to open, strengthen and relax the entire body.

What are some of the benefits of Modo Yoga?

Modo Yoga classes help to build strength and flexibility. We focus a lot on breath awareness, which ultimately helps to relax and calm the body and mind. People who practice regularly often notice that they are happier, have better focus, and are more readily able to handle the stresses of everyday life.

How hot is Modo Yoga?

Modo classes are heated to around 37-38 degrees Celsius with around 40-50% humidity. However, external weather conditions and the number of students in the class can have an effect on the feeling of 'heat' inside the room. If you’ve never practiced hot yoga before it might feel quite hot during your first class, but over time, your body will acclimatize to the heat. Students are encouraged to move through each class at their own pace, taking rest and water when needed.

Do you have any classes that aren't hot?

Our Yin Yoga classes are offered in reduced heat - the room will be warm but not hot for these classes. Our Barre classes are also led at room temperature.

How old do I have to be to take a Modo Yoga class?

The minimum age to take class at our studio is 16. We require a parent or guardian's signature in order for anyone under the age of 18 to take class in-studio at MYNV, so plan ahead for your first visit!

I'm the least flexible person in the entire world...

We've definitely heard that before! Being the least flexible person in the entire world is the best reason to try a Modo Yoga class! But really, don’t worry if you can't touch your toes or balance on one foot – some flexibility will come with time, and we can always adapt postures for you with blocks and/or straps to help you get the benefit that your unique and awesome body needs. You don’t have to be flexible to try your first class.

Do I need to pre-register?

No, but it's recommended to make sure you save yourself a spot in class! Our high traffic classes fill up fast so do yourself a favour and preregister & rest easy knowing your space in class will be held up to 5 minutes prior to the start of class!

What should I wear?

Wear something that you feel comfortable in and that is easy to move around in. You will probably sweat a lot (especially in our hot yoga classes), so lightweight, breathable materials that will absorb sweat and dry quickly are best. Shorts or leggings with a tee-shirt or a tank top are all great options. For the safety and comfort of other students (and teachers too!), please do not come to class in just underwear, ie: bikini bottoms or boxer briefs.

What should I bring?

You'll need a yoga mat, mat towel, and water for class. Don't have something? Feel free to rent our mats & towels, or borrow our shared equipment. Equipment for Barre classes is also available for shared used. You can also purchase mats, towels, and yoga props from us as needed :)

What kind of changeroom facilities do you have?

We have a women's change room, a men's change room, and a general neutral change room, which each contain showers for after class & cubby spaces for your things while you're in class.

How long are your classes?

Our classes are 45 or 75 minutes long. Check the schedule to see which class times work for you!

I'm running late...can I still take class?

Stuff happens – we totally get it! But unfortunately, we can't let latecomers in once class has started. Every class starts and ends on time to help provide a peaceful experience for all. Please plan ahead and make sure you arrive at the studio a minimum of 5 minutes before class is scheduled to start. If you preregister for class, our early (free) cancellation window ends 4 hours prior to class start time. A late cancellation fee of $15 will be charged to your account - or you'll be deducted a class from a class card on file - for late cancellations (within 4 hours of class' start time).
