YOGA FAQ

What time should I arrive?
10-15 minutes before class starts. Doors close 5 minutes before class time, no students will be permitted in after that time.

What should I bring?
Bring a mat, some water, and dress comfortably. If you don’t have a mat, you can rent them for $1. Wear comfortbale clothes, no need for special clothing.

What do you mean by a diverse yoga studio?
It means that yoga is available for anyone who wants to try it. People sometimes mistakenly believe that they are too out of shape or not flexible enough for yoga. Differences and challenges such as obesity, autism, agoraphobia, anxiety, arthritis, ADD or any other perceived challenges are welcomed. Any issues that you feel are unique, please let us know. Our studio is beginner-friendly.

I'm not flexible (or I'm overweight, or out of shape). Can I do yoga?
Absolutely! Here at Comfort and Balance every size and shape is welcome. There is no judgment and no competition. Yoga is about helping you feel good about yourself.

Can my child take yoga?
We welcome students ages 13 and up in all our public classes. Occasionally, we offer specialized classes for children 12 and under.

I'm new to yoga, which class should I take?
Almost any class on our schedule. We keep our class sizes small so our teachers can give you the help & confidence you need to feel comfortable whether it is your first class or your hundredth. If you have any questions or concerns, discuss them with your teacher. Not sure which class to try? Call us at 732-750-8767 or email, we're glad to help you.


MASSAGE FAQ

What is a massage session like?
During your initial appointment, you will be asked background information about your state of health and any concerns or questions you may have and we’ll go over my policies. It is a good idea to allow extra time, at no charge, for this.

As you prepare for the massage, I will leave the room to give you privacy to undress and make yourself comfortable under the sheet on the massage table. Completely undressing or wearing thong or brief type underwear works best. During the massage, your body is covered with a sheet except for the section being massaged.

Once you are covered and on the massage table, we are ready to begin. Music and lighting are adjusted to your liking. I have a large selection of relaxing music to choose from, but you are welcome to bring your own MP3 player. After the massage, I again leave the room to give you complete privacy when getting dressed.

What if I drool, snore or pass gas while having a massage?

These are completely natural occurrences of the body and nothing to be ashamed of. I can say honestly that you would not be the first to do this, but at the same time, I truly couldn't recall the people or sessions to which they have happened. As a massage therapist I am completely focused on your energy, muscle tension and my massage techniques. So any of the body's involuntary actions do not phase me one bit. I am a trained and certified massage therapist.

I'm worried about the privacy of my body.

Your privacy is one of my top concerns. Under no circumstances will I touch or look at your private areas. They are not part of my massage routine and are covered by your sheet during the whole session.
