FAQ

 

What is Power Flow?

Turbo 26 offers Power Flow heated yoga throughout the day. Power Flow is a fast-flow, fitness-based vinyasa practice that builds internal heat and improves stamina, strength, flexibility, balance, and mindfulness. Since our classes are only 26 minutes long, we eliminate most of the resting poses typically found in yoga classes and focus on the flow, matching breath to movement.  Power Flow classes always start of the :00. Check our schedule for exact times.

What is Power Fusion?

Turbo 26 offers Power fusion classes that add calisthenic exercises into traditional yoga sequences. Think squats, push-ups, and toe-taps to get your heart rate up and your sweat on. This high-intensity, fun class is a great way to combine the calorie-burning benefits of exercise with the mind-body benefits of yoga. Power Fusion classes always start of the :30. Check our schedule for exact times.

When are your hour-long classes?

Turbo 26 offers hour-long classes once a day during the week and twice on weekend days. Hour-long Advanced Flow classes are: Monday, Wednesday, Friday 9:00 AM, Tuesday, Thursday 8:00 PM, and Saturday, Sunday 2:00 PM. Hour Fusion classes are Saturday, Sunday 12:30 PM. Check our schedule for exact times.

Are Turbo 26 classes too advanced for a beginner?

Turbo 26 classes are designed to be challenging, but accessible, to all levels. All classes are taught to the mid-line with modifications offered for beginners and up-level options for advanced yogis. You will see all levels of yoga happening at the same time in the same space and everyone is practicing what works best for their bodies at that time.

Do Turbo 26 classes have Savasana or meditation?

Not for 26-minute classes. We believe in guiding yogis through the full 26-minutes with mindfulness. We love meditation, but we prefer breathing – it’s more accessible. We focus on the movement and flow and leave the chanting and incense outside the studio. Hour-long classes do offer savasana to close out class - you'll love it!

How hot is Turbo 26?

Our studio has a state-of-the-art climate control that provides healthy heat. The room is maintained at 98 degrees (very close to body temperature) with 30 percent humidity. In addition, and especially important, our system pumps fresh oxygen into the studio all day long. That means there is always fresh air to breathe, and it never gets stuffy or stinky. It’s actually healthful to be in the Turbo 26 Studio space. We set the climate so your body warms up quickly and moves with maximum flexibility and fluidity. It’s pretty amazing! Read more here.

Are your instructors certified?

Yes. All our amazing instructors have Yoga Alliance RYT-200 or better, plus specialized training in the Turbo 26 method. We think our instructors are the best on the planet, and we hope you’ll agree! Read their bios here.

How do the “stackable” classes work?

Turbo 26 classes start every half hour nearly all day long. Yogis can come for one 26-minute class or stay for multiple classes in a row. Just check the schedule in advance, then show up for the start time you want and stay as long as you like. The sequencing doesn’t repeat and never gets boring. Our instructors are amazing all the time but especially during the 4-minute transitions, as some yogis are coming, some are going, and some are staying.

Why 26 minutes?

In today’s busy, stressed, obsessed world, it can be hard to find time for fitness, let alone a 75-minute or 90-minute yoga class. At Turbo 26, we respect all types of yoga, and we want to see more people doing more yoga, and getting more of the mind-body benefit we love so much about yoga. So, we created a sequencing format that offers the most benefit in the shortest time. 26 minutes is plenty to gain strength, flexibility, balance, and focus – and isn’t doing 26 minutes of yoga better than not doing 90 minutes of yoga because you don’t have time?

What will 26 minutes of yoga do for me?

At Turbo 26, we believe that what you can accomplish on your mat, you can achieve in your life. We want you to reach every audacious goal you set for yourself, so start on your mat and push your boundaries. Try that arm balance you’ve been afraid of. Take up a little more space on your mat. Be bold. What have you got to lose? One of the beautiful things about yoga – among many – is that when you exhaust your body, you open your mind. There is no better time than after yoga (well, after a shower after yoga) to make tough decisions, have difficult conversations, or find a breakthrough to a challenging problem. At Turbo 26, we hope to inspire you to live your best life – on and off your mat.

Turbo 26 offers yoga Monday and Wednesday from 7:00 AM to 8:00 PM; Friday from 7:00 AM to 6:00 PM; Tuesday and Thursday from 6:00 AM to 9:00 PM; and Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM.

How do the credit packs work?

Turbo 26 offers stackable classes that each cost one credit. Come for one 26-minute class for one credit, or stay for two classes in a row for two credits.

What if I buy a membership or credit pack and then don’t want to use it?

At Turbo 26, we believe you should never have to pay for something you don’t want. We are happy (well, not happy, but definitely willing) to cancel memberships at any time. We won't hold you to any long term contracts or onerous terms. Unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds, but credit packs never expire and can be shared; plus TGU memberships can be transferred. So, you're never really out of luck!

Are there other Turbo 26 locations?

Not yet, but we have big plans to expand. Stay tuned for franchise opportunities. We want the world to experience the magic that happens in just 26 minutes on your yoga mat.

What is your age policy?

Yogis 13-15 years old and accompanied by a parent or guardian are welcome to practice with us. Yogis 16-17 can practice solo, but must have a parent or guardian sign their liability waiver on their first visit. 18 and older are good to go.
