Frequently asked questionS

How do I join?

You can try our welcome special offer 14 days of unlimited Yoga across both locations for only $40. Our special offer package deal is available only once for all students – This offer starts the day of your first class, and will run for 2 weeks this means that you can try any class within the two week period. Even if you only try two classes this offer is still great value for money. Our package can be booked online via Mind Body Online or you can simply turn up to any class and pay cash or card at the studio. There is no need to book classes online but it is a good option to keep organised with your schedule.


But I am not flexible & have never tried Yoga before?

Yoga does not care if you are flexible, Yoga will increase flexibility and give you strength. I heard a saying once ‘saying you’re not flexible enough to do yoga is like saying you’re too dirty to have a bath!’. All our classes are suitable for all levels. Check out our class descriptions to read what all of the styles mean. Most of our students are at a beginner level and all of our teachers are extremely skilled at working with beginners as well as advanced practitioners.


How do I get to both locations?

We have two locations to give you the most opportunity for a wide range of classes. Our first location is Soul Tribe Studio, 57 Beach Rd, Catalina, 2536. We are located next to Birdland. There is ample parking at the studio. Soul Tribe Studio is connected to Tribe cafe which is open 7am - 1pm Monday - Saturday. Our second location is The Yoga Room, 1/3 North St, Batemans Bay. The studio is up on the second level, go up the stairs near the hairdressers, just down the street from Nourish cafe. There is ample parking in Batemans Bay or you can ride your bike along the bike paths.


How do I know what class is at which location?

The best way to keep a track of the timetables across both locations is to download the Mind Body Online app. Then search for Soul Tribe Studio and both locations will come up. You can ‘favourite’ both locations by pressing the heart button and then they will always be there on the home page when you open the app. Alternatively you can find the timetable on our website - the left hand column shows which location. Be sure to double check the class times and what location before you leave.


What time should I arrive?

Please aim to arrive at least 10 minutes before the start of class to give you time to settle into the space and talk to your teacher about your specific requirements. We understand that things happen, if you are a few minutes late you are permitted to enter the class. If you’re more than 5 minutes late it’s best to choose a different class.


Can I leave early?

If you absolutely have to yes, however the end part of the practice (called Savasana) is the most important part, where you allow your body and mind to rest and integrate everything you’ve experienced. It is also disruptive to other students to leave early. If you have to leave early please inform the teacher before the class starts and leave as quietly as possible.


What do I need to bring?

We supply mats and all other yoga props. If you have your own mat you are welcome to bring it but it’s not essential. We have filtered water available at the Soul Tribe Studio location. It’s a good idea to bring a water bottle and a small towel if you tend to sweat a lot.

Is there a space to store my valuables?

Yes you can store your valuables in the storage areas provided at both studios. It is really important to make sure your phone is OFF or on airplane mode (please don’t leave on vibrate). Turning your phone off also reduces wifi interference in the practice.

How much are classes after the introductory offer is over and how do I pay?

The most cost effective way to continue a regular yoga practice with Soul Tribe is to take up our unlimited membership option. There is no lock in contract for this and you can cancel at anytime. For only $28 per week experience unlimited yoga classes across both locations (that’s as little as $4 per day if you attend every day). Alternatively you can buy a pack of 10 classes which is valid for 6 months for $150. A casual class is $18. You can buy any of these options online via Mind Body Online or we take cash or card payments at the studio.


How often should I come to class?

As often as possible (every day is ideal!) but we recommend at least 3 times a week to really experience the transformational benefits on a physical, mental, emotional and energetic level.


What should I wear?

Anything that you feel comfortable in and can stretch in. For the ladies, it’s a good idea to have a top that is fitted around the chest, as sometimes baggy clothes on top can get in our way. Guys could wear tracksuit bottoms/shorts and a t-shirt.


Should I eat before class?

We advise not eating at least 2 hours before class. Practicing yoga on a full stomach is not a pleasant experience! Ensure you are well hydrated before class (and always!). You can have a very light snack before class if you feel hungry. You can bring your water bottle into class with you, although we advise to not drink during the class. Staying hydrated before and after class is very important.


I still have more questions, who should I contact?
