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 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 heat. Bring a water bottle and we do provide complimentary perspiration towels. 

  • Rental Bmats are free with a $20 drop in or $3 with other passes. Please bring cash for rentals.  Please return the mat cleaned to us. 

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.

  • Check in with the instructor at the desk. 

  • Boot trays for your shoes and hooks for your jackets are on the right side when entering and cubbies are available for personal belongings. Please leave valuables in the car. The doors are locked during class

Q and A:

Do I have to wear a mask during class? No, masks are no longer required at the studio for vaccinated individuals. If you are not vaccinated we ask that you continue to wear a mask. 

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. 

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 via email fireflyhotyogabarre@gmail.com 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 at class start time. If you are running late, please let us know ahead of time as no one will be in the lobby to let you in. 

What if I can’t make it to a class I registered for? 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. If we are able to fill your spot we will not charge you. 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. The waiver is online as well.
