FAQ

(arrive in) the studio

  • How much time do I need before start of my session?

    You won’t need much, but we recommend you to arrive at least 5-10 minutes before the indicated start time so you have some time to check in, find your spot and get ready for your session.

  • Can I arrive after start time?

    With the group experience in mind, we do encourage you to be on time. In case everything is against you on your way to the studio, we hold a time frame of 5 minutes (max).

  • Do I need to check in with the host?

    Yes, please make sure to check-in with the host upon arrival, so we know you’re in.

  • What do I bring?

    As we’d like you to travel light, the studio has everything you need: mats, props, lockers, complimentary tea and water before & after class, and showers stocked with NAIF organic care products. You only need to bring your yoga outfit. If you like to drink water during class please bring your own non-breakable water bottle.

  • Do you have lockers?

    Yes – lockers are provided for your bag, laptop, phone, keys, jacket, whatever you don’t need during your class, workshop or course.

  • Do you have changing rooms?

    Yes – we have two changing rooms (men + women) including shower facilities. Shower products (NAIF organic & carefree care products)  and a hair dryer are provided. If you need a towel or shower cap, these are available for rent (EUR 1).

  • What if I leave something behind?

    We have a Lost & Found Box where we safely place all items. To reclaim what’s yours, please visit us during class (= opening) hours.

  • Can I stay a little bit longer after class or arrive early?

    Yes we like that! Please make yourself at home in the Bondi Café and pour yourself a glass of water / tea, or you can order something stronger at the bar. We have delicious coffees, matcha latte, juices, kombucha and some healthy snacks.

Classes

  • Do I need an account to book a session?

    Yes. You can create an account via studio-bondi.com (Sign In), the Studio Bondi app (download for free on App Store or Google Play) or in the studio. If you’re sure you will only visit our studio once and you don’t want to make use of one of our introduction offers, we can book your spot via our house account. In this case, please send an e-mail to hello@studio.com.

  • Do you also allow walk-ins?

    Yes we do, but spots are limited.

  • What if I need to cancel?

    Please do so via your account on the website or the app, at least 4 hours prior to the class start time.

  • What if I forget to cancel or if I’m too late?

    If you forget to cancel or if the cancellation window is already closed at the time of your cancellation (4 hours prior to start of class), this is regarded as a Late Cancel. If you have a class pass, this class will be charged from that class pass. If you have an unlimited subscription, a EUR5 Late Cancel Fee will be charged. Because we work with a maximum number of mats for each class and we otherwise hold a mat for you, we always appreciate it if you can let us know that you won’t be there – also if it’s just a couple of minutes before start of class.

  • What is your waiting list policy?

    If you have joined the waiting list, you will be notified by e-mail or by push notification via the app if there is a free spot available again. This is first come first serve so be quick! Meaning, all people on the waitlist will be getting the notification at the same time and the spot will go to whoever reserves first.

General

  • Is there something for beginners?

    Every quarter we offer a workshop or a special course dedicated to beginners but feel free to join any regular class as well. Except for our Yang Strong class, we have new yogis in almost every class. You will be fine. To be on the safe side: Our Yin Classic, Yin Relax, or Bondi Align & Flow classes are a great place to start.

  • What language do you speak?

    Our sessions are taught in English (or in Dutch if everyone can follow, but considering all those beautiful nationalities in the neighborhood, most – if not all – sessions are taught in English). Our teachers will make sure that everyone can follow.

  • What do I wear?

    You can wear whatever you like so long as you’re comfortable and you can move freely. For all yin and meditation sessions it can be nice to bring your sweater and comfy socks as your body may cool down. You don’t need any shoes.

  • Can I bring water into the yoga room?

    Water and tea is complementary before and after class. If you like to take water into class, please bring your own non-breakable water bottle so that we don’t have glasses flying around.

  • Do you sell gift cards?

    Yes! You can purchase a gift card in-studio or online. Click here to purchase a gift card online. To redeem a gift card, you can either enter your Gift Card Number online at checkout, or redeem in-studio.

  • Can I bring the Bondi-vibes to my office or my event?

    Yes! We provide one-off, daily, weekly, bi-weekly and monthly yoga & meditation sessions to give your team or event whatever it is you are looking for: re-energize, relax, strength, flexibility, a calm mind or all of the above. Get in touch via els@studio-bondi.com to discuss your wishes.

Pregnant, burnout, injury, old, stiff

  • What if I’m pregnant, burnout or injured?

    In case of pregnancy, burnout or an injury please tell the teacher in advance and make sure to listen to your body; it’ll tell you what you need. To be on the safe side, please check with your doctor before joining a session.

    For all expecting moms: if you have experience with yoga and you know your depths and modifications, you can join any session you feel comfortable with (make sure to tell the teacher; it doesn’t always show). Our weekly prenatal class is also a wonderful option, this class is for you mama’s!

  • What if I’m too old or too stiff?

    We think you’re never too old or too stiff, but if you feel that way you may want to start with a gentle practice. Try for example one of our Yin classes or join the Bondi Align & Flow.

  • What if I’m feeling great?

    Also if you’re feeling great, listen to your body during class. We are often very ambitious and are trying to go a little bit deeper, a little bit further. However, if you feel any pain in the exercises, please return to a comfortable position. Don’t force yourself, rather relax into a pose.
