New to the Studio?

Welcome

Welcome to Firefly and welcome home. Dim lights, amazing music, no mirrors and no judgement - our studio was created to be a safe place where you can feel relaxed, inspired, and empowered as you embark on your journey to a higher state of well being. Come as you are, preferably with an open mind and willingness to allow your inner light to shine, and we will meet you where you are, helping you get the most from your practice or workout. Every body, every size, every shape, and every background is welcome here. Firefly is for everyone. This is your space, your studio, your new home. ​

The space:

Our studio has been open since 2015 after a year of rehabbing our 100+ year old building. Every effort was made in repurposing as many materials as we could to try to keep to the history of the building.  Exposed brick, 100% led lighting, far-infrared radiant heat, antimicrobial flooring, and air purifiers are just some of the things we’ve done to make this place safe, warm, and inviting. 

The People:

One of the hardest parts of trying yoga or fitness classes for the first time or at a new studio is getting over the fear if you will fit in or not. Have no fear, our community is one of the most friendly, welcoming, giving, and kind groups of people that one could hope for. It’s non-competitive, friendly, and full of people from every age group (16-75), all shapes, sizes, and backgrounds that have come to the studio for variety of reasons. 

The heat:

what to wear and bring:

  • The room is heated to 80 degrees for The Barre is LiiT and aerial classes, 85-90 degrees for Barre and Sculpt classes, and 90-95+ for yoga classes so wear clothing that moves well if it gets sweaty. Most people wear capris/shorts/leggings and tanks/t-shirts. 

  • Hydrating before you arrive will help with acclimating to the masks and heat. 

  • Rental mats are not being used at the moment, so please bring your own mat and water with you.

when you arrive:

  • Parking on the street is metered from 9am-6pm Monday - Friday and free from 6pm to 9am during the week and free all day on Saturday and Sunday. There is an app that makes it easy to park if you come during metered hours. Download the Passport Parking app from the Apple App Store or Google Play store.

  • We are located on the 2nd floor (right above Kewpee's restaurant). Enter into their lobby and hang an immediate right for the stairs. 

  • Doors will open 10-15 minutes prior to class start time.

  • Masks are required at all times, even during practice.

  • Upon entering please use the sanitizer on the wall as you walk in or wash your hands.

  • Check in with the instructor at the desk, they will ask you a few questions and take your temp.

  • After the questions and temp check, please place your shoes on the boot trays and use a cubby for your personal belongings. 

  • Upon entering the studio room, please line the top center of your mat up directly below a sticker on the floor.

Q and A:

Do I have to wear a mask during class? Yes, a mask is required at all times at the studio. Don’t worry, you will still be able to take drinks of water - we just ask that you place the mask back on after taking a drink. 

What can I do to keep everyone safe in the studio? 

If you are sick, coughing, sniffling, have a fever or don’t feel well, please stay at home. 

Bring as few outside items as possible to the studio. 

Use the sanitizer or wash your hands upon entering the studio.

If you cough or sneeze, please cover your mouth and then go wash your hands. 

Stay a safe distance from everyone in the common areas.

We ask that after class you promptly leave the building so we can clean the studio and disinfect. 

What if I have classes or time left on a MI Hot Yoga package purchased prior to April 2020? You can still use your package, we just have a little bit of a complicated system of tracking everything between the 4 studios since we are all on different platforms, so bear with us as we work through it. Please contact us to get your passes added to your new account. 

 

What time do the doors open? We will open the doors 15 minutes before class and lock the doors 15 minutes after class. After class, please gather your belongings and exit the studio in a timely fashion so that we may clean and disinfect for the next class.

What if I can’t make it to a class I registered for? With limited class spots available, we have no choice but to implement a cancellation policy. If you are unable to make it to class please try to cancel as soon as you can. If you cancel within 4 hours of class or don’t show at all it is considered a “late cancel”. Late cancels will be subject to the use of one class if you have a class pack or a charge of $10 for unlimited pass holders. Please cancel in the Wix app or call our studio for help. 

Should I preregister for a class? Yes, please do as we are now requiring all bookings be done online at this time. FYI - Class sizes are limited to 9 students.
