What If It’s My First Visit to the Studio?
Please arrive 15 minutes prior to class to complete our waiver form and register. To save time when you come in you can pre-register online. This will also guarantee you spot in class.
Place all of your belongings in one of the student cubbies located in our locker area; please do not bring them into the studio. You can leave your shoes in the shoe cubbies in the entrance way.
Have an amazing experience in your class and go at your own pace! Our goal is for every student to feel comfortable in class while moving in their own unique way.
Please arrive at least 5-10 minutes prior to class start time. For the safety and satisfaction of all clients, without exception, students who arrive after the class start time will not be permitted to enter the studio. If you do arrive late, we encourage you to come to our next scheduled class.
No cell phones are allowed in the practice space. Please silence your phone and leave it with your personal belongings.
How to Prepare for Class
Wear Clothing that you are comfortable in. Women typically wear yoga pants or shorts with a workout top, t-shirt or sports bra. Men can wear running shorts and a t-shirt.
Yoga: No special footgear is required because you will be barefoot. Socks are optional.
Barre/Pilates: You can either be barefoot or wear toe sox. Toe sox are sold at the studio.
Reservations are not required but suggested. We offer 18 on-line reservations for those who would like to secure a spot in class. If you do not register, please arrive early or you will not be guaranteed a spot.
If attending any of the heated classes hydration is key to avoid dizziness or fatigue during class. Ideally you want to drink 8 –10 glasses of water (8 oz per glass) the day before and the day of the class.

What type of heating system is used for the Hot & Warm Yoga classes ?
Tula Yoga is one of the only studios in Central/Southern New Jersey to use an infrared heating system for its heated yoga classes. Unlike traditional heating, there is no noise, no dust or germs circulating, and no odor, making for a more pleasant experience. Radiant heat penetrates the deepest layers of tissue, where it stimulates the body to release toxins, fat and other impurities through sweating; analysis has found that sweat resulting from infrared heat contained 20 percent toxins, compared to three percent from traditional heat. This safe, internal heating of the body can also stimulate immune function, increase blood flow, improve skin tone, texture and elasticity, ease joint and muscle pain, and break up cellulite deposits. Infrared heating is safe, offers deeper health benefits and will maximize the results of your hot yoga practice.Tula Yoga is one of the only studios in Central/Southern New Jersey to use an infrared heating system for its heated yoga classes.
