Frequently Asked Questions
Am I too ______ to do yoga?
(insert word out your choice….old, stiff, weak, out of shape, hyper, etc.)
No you are not “too” any of those things. Yoga is practiced by millions of people, and all of them very different. If you have a true desire to do yoga, you can do yoga. We guarantee that if you give this yoga stuff a little time and effort, you will be amazed by how you feel. Now that we’ve got that out of the way….
Where are you located?
At 2891 Richmond Road. We’re in front of Lowes and behind Sunshine Grow Shop. Yes, that FUNky wood building that you’ve always been curious about. We’re upstairs in Suite 202. Trust me, you will love our space!
Do I need to pre-register for class?
No, you don’t have to pre-register. However if you want to you can do so online here.
What should I wear?
Something that is comfortable that you can move freely in. Sweat pants, leggings, yoga pants, and a fitted shirt will work nicely. We don’t recommend loose fitting t-shirts as they can get in the way of your practice. We’ll be in our bare feet so no fancy shoes needed.
Do I need to bring a yoga mat?
If you have one then bring it along. If you don’t own a yoga mat we have a few extras that you are welcome to borrow. However, if you stick to your yoga practice we recommend that you purchase your own.
Do you have a place I can change before/after class?
Yes we have two restrooms. You are welcome to use to prepare yourself before class and freshen up after class.
Do you have showers available?
Sorry, we do not.

How early should I arrive for class?
If you are coming for your first time, please get here 10-15 minutes early to complete a registration form. We recommend all of our students get here about 10 minutes early for class. Some classes are more crowded that others so this allows you plenty of time to sign in, get your yoga props, find a spot and settle in for class.
How late is too late to come in for class?
We really encourage students to be on time. Our studio is one big open space, so when you enter late it is a disruption to the rest of the class. We understand that there are times you can’t prevent being late. If you know that you’ll be delayed more than 10 minutes, we recommend that you don’t come for class that day. But please practice at home!
I have an injury/medical condition. Can I still practice yoga at Barefoot Works?
Usually, yes. For serious injuries we recommend that you consult with your doctor before beginning a yoga practice. If you’re unsure please call or email us. We also recommend taking private yoga lessons prior to beginning group classes if you have a serious injury. Read more about private sessions and yoga therapy sessions .
It’s pretty warm at your studio. Why don’t you keep it cooler?
We agree that it gets warm at Barefoot Works. You can expect the temperature to range between 75-80 degrees. Yoga is meant to be a detoxifying practice. Sweating is ok. It’s good! If you sweat a lot we recommend bringing a hand towel to class. We understand that heat can aggravate some of you. If this is the case we recommend that you attend one of our less vigorous classes such as Yin Yoga and Yoga for Stress Relief.
What forms of payment do you accept?
We accept cash, check, Visa and Mastercard
What is the registration policy for workshops?
Full payment is required at the time of registration. We encourage you to preregister for our workshops since they may fill. We also require a minimum number of registrants in order to justify holding the workshop. You can view and register for workshops here or call us at 859-433-7787.
What is the cancellation policy for workshops?
If you need to cancel please inform Barefoot Works at least 72 hours before the workshop by phone, email, or in person. If you cancel within 72 hours you will get a credit on your account. If Barefoot Works cancels the workshop you have the option of a refund or credit.
What is the cancellation policy for private sessions?
When you reserve a time for a private session, your teacher takes time and makes the effort to prepare for your session. If you have to cancel, please do so within 24 hours of the session. Otherwise you will be charged in full for the session.
What is the cancellation policy for yoga teacher training?
Before submitting your application for yoga teacher training we ask that you consider the time, money, and energy that must be invested to become a yoga teacher. We recommend that you carefully evaluate your schedule and obligations to ensure that you can commit fully to the program. We keep our training group fairly small and it usually sells out. Please keep this in mind as you are completing your application and paying your deposit. The deposit is due when you submit your application and is non-refundable. We do not offer any refunds for yoga teacher training.
What is the international retreat cancellation policy?
For our yoga retreat to Mexico you must cancel thirty days prior to the event to receive a full refund. If you cancel within thirty days your deposit and payment can be used within one year at one of the three properties owned by R&R Resorts. Registrations and cancellations are handled with Maya Tulum. Call 1-888-515-4580.
What is the national retreat cancellation policy?
No refunds will be issued unless your spot is taken by someone on a waiting list. If your space is not filled, and a written request is submitted one week before the retreat, a credit will be placed in your account for future Barefoot Works offerings. If you cancel within one week of the retreat, no refunds or credits will be issued.
