Q: What Is Yoga?
A: While Yoga encompasses many different lifestyle aspects, what we concentrate on here at Mint is the physical aspect of Yoga sometimes referred to as Asana practice. We have different styles of movement/postures that range from gentle to powerful. Most of our classes will also include some Centering/Meditation and Svasana (rest) as well.
Q: How is Yoga different from stretching or other forms of physical exercise?
A: Yoga is unique in that it has a focus on marrying your movements with your breath so that you are aware of your breath and your body as you exert energy. There is time to center and focus on the breath (meditation), there is time to move with the breath (asana) and there is time to rest with breath (svasana) in every class regardless of which style you choose to practice.
Q: What do I need to bring to class?
A: All you really need is yourself and a yoga mat. At Mint, we also have a prop wall to borrow from (blocks, blankets, bolsters and straps) if you require these for your practice. Some teachers even incorporate these into their classes by design and they will instruct you as to what you need at the beginning of class. You may also want to bring a water bottle for hydration and a hand towel if you tend to build up a sweat.
Q: What should I wear?
A: We’d suggest wearing clothing that is comfortable to move in. Leggings or shorts and a T shirt or tank top are what most people wear to the studio.
Q: Which class should I take?
A: If you’ve never taken a yoga class before we would recommend starting with our gentle yoga classes. If you’d like something a bit more challenging we’d recommend a slow flow class or move & flow class. If you’re looking to break a sweat we’d recommend vinyasa flow or power flow. Want to reset and renew? Try our restorative classes. Want a little of everything? Take our Sunday morning vinyasa (yang) & yin class. Read full descriptions of our classes.
Q: I’m not flexible – can I still do yoga?
A: Yes! You are a perfect candidate for yoga. Come as you are and you will find that yoga practice will help you become more flexible, as well as more balanced, strong, and coordinated – with a sense of physical confidence and overall well-being.
Q: Do I have to prebook or can I just drop in?
A: You do need to prebook your class, due to covid restrictions, our class sizes are limited!
Q: Where can I park?
A: There is on street parking at street level and there is also a parking lot around back off of Miller Lane. If you park in back you will enter through the back doors and take the elevator up to the 3rd floor (we will be the last door on the left).
Q: Where are you located?
A: We are on the 3rd floor (suite 301) of the Hiland Building located at 18 North Ft Thomas Ave. Colonel De’s Spcie Store and Restaurant anchor the building at street level. You will enter the middle doors into a Foyer area and then walk up one flight of stairs to the 3rd floor. Mint is the first door on the right as you enter the hallway.
Q: What does it cost to take a class?
A: If you are new to the studio we have a New to Mint special – 30 days of unlimited yoga for $40. This offer allows you to get to know the studio schedule and instructors.

Q: Can I bring my adolescent child to class?
A: At MINT we do not have a specific policy around bringing you child to regular classes. You can do so but we ask that you take responsibility for their behavior. If they are acting up and disturbing other guests we would request that you leave. Most of our classes are fine for teens and tweens and many people have brought their kids to class with no problem to date!
Q: How are your teachers trained?
A: All of our teachers are registered with a minimum RYT 200 designation through the Yoga Alliance which is the highest internationally recognized board in our industry.
Q: Can I practice yoga while pregnant?
