Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How can I reach you?
A: You can contact us by phone & text (951) 529-0346 or email email@example.com. If we are not available immediately, we will always do our best to get back to you as soon as possible.
Q: Do I need to sign up for class in advance?
A: Yes. Please sign up prior to class through the MINDBODY system. Enrolling ahead of time will ensure that there is enough room and equipment for everyone. If you are unable to attend class, make sure to cancel your reservation prior to the reservation cutoff time to avoid being charged and allow a chance for those on the wait list to attend. If no one is signed up for class one hour before class, it may be cancelled. If you have any further questions about signing up, please contact the studio.
Q: How many times a week should I attend class?
A: While there is no magic number of classes, it is preferable to aim for at least three classes per week in order to see more significant improvements.
Q: What do I need to bring with me?
A: Bring any equipment that you feel will enhance your practice (e.g., water, towel, yoga mat, eye pillow, props). While there are high quailty mats available for rent at the studio ($2), most students bring their own. If you do not have a mat and would like to buy one, high quality mats are available for purchase at the studio. Wear comfortable clothes with stretch. All classes are done barefoot.
Q: What if I am Late?
A: Should you be late (less than 15 minutes) please enter class quietly…respect your neighbor and their practice. No late entries after 15 minutes past the class start time.
Q: I have never practiced yoga before. Can I still come to class?
A: Of course! We have made the names and class descriptions new student friendly so you can find a class appropriate to your level. Please get to class 15 minutes early to inform the instructor of any injuries or limitations. We also have private lessons available, which are a great way for beginners to feel more confident before joining group classes.
Q: Do you sell workout supplies at Reveille?
A: Yes, we sell workout clothing, yoga mats, yoga supplies, and other lifestyle accessories at the studio.
Q: Where can I park when I am at the studio?
A: Parking in Downtown Riverside is becoming increasingly scarce.
The City’s parking is the most inexpensive during most times. Downtown street parking is FREE during classes before 9am (Yay 6am classes!), weekends (Yay weekend classes), holidays and after 5 p.m. weekdays (Yay evening classes!). Metered times are Monday through Friday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and are $1 per hour. So in a nut shell, unless you are coming to the weekday noon class street parking is the best and cheapest.
There is also free parking for the first 90 minutes and only $1.00 for an additional half hour in the city's parking structures such as the nearby Food Lab. Get a parking map here.
*The parking lot behind the studio is reserved for our clients however has been recently limited by the building owner to 90 minutes for .25 cents. There is a charge of $2 per 30 minutes for going over on time and there is no grace period.* The entrance is on 5th Street, pull in the driveway, take a timed ticket upon entry, the bar will raise allowing you to enter into the lot. The cost for parking is .25 cents for 90 minutes (you will use a ticket you get from the studio front desk to validate upon exiting). Park near the Wit office and walk on Main Street to our front door. Remember to purchase a parking ticket from the front desk to use on your way out that will validate your parking otherwise the lot charges $15 for lost tickets. Please allow for a possible line of cars to get out of the driveway included in your time calculation.
During the Festival of Lights please allow additional time for parking.

Q: What if I have an injury?
A: You are not alone. Many of us are coming to yoga after sustaining injuries in order to build strength and rehabilitate our bodies. First of all, check with the appropriate medical professionals to make sure that yoga is safe for you and inquire whether there are certain types of movements that you should avoid. You are always welcome to inform the instructor before class of your specific injury and possible limitations. We love to know those things and will help you as best we can, however, we are not physicians or physical therapists. Keep in mind that our studio classes are group classes, so every instructor is working to provide a balanced class for all in attendance. Therefore, we encourage all of our students to listen to their bodies. Students are encouraged to modify or skip poses if necessary and to take breaks as often as they need. If you would like to learn specific modifications for your injury we highly recommend taking a private session or two, then you can take those modifications into your next group class.
Q: How do I cancel or freeze my membership?
A: Our front desk team will be happy to help and may even have suggestions on how to get the most out of your yoga journey. You can freeze your membership for health reasons for up to two months during a calendar year, according to your billing cycle. We do not prorate for travel. For cancellations, we don’t require a 30-day notice, but we do require you email (firstname.lastname@example.org) us before your upcoming billing date. Please note that many people are on a grandfathered monthly rate, if you cancel you will need to resubscribe at the new plan prices.
