things to know:

 
  • What is your late policy? No late students will be admitted into class (not even if it's by one minute!). Our studio is an open space, with the door opening onto a bustling Ashland Avenue. Admitting late students is just too noisy for the students who have arrived on time and are just starting their practice. Our doors lock promptly at the start of class (please no knocking on the door!) and don't open until class has ended. If you find yourself on the outside looking in, you unfortunately will be marked as a no show and the class will be deducted from your account. With that being said, trains delay, meetings go long, and life happens; we consider ourselves pretty understandable beings, so shoot us an email and we can figure something out. 
  • What is your cancellation policy? You must cancel your class at least 6 hours before the start of class. If a class is cancelled 6 hours before the start of class it will be added back to your account. If a class is cancelled past that change period it will be deducted from your account.
  • Do you have mats? All students are provided with a Jade yoga mat free of charge; mats will be laid out on the floor for you prior to the start of class. If you wish to you use your own mat, simply remove our mat from the floor, and in the same spot, place your own
  • What should I wear for yoga? Tighter fitting clothes are usually best for yoga! 
  • What should I wear for meditation? We recommend loose fitting clothing or anything you're comfortable sitting in for 30min, in a seated position on a cushion/floor. Our clients often come straight from work or on a lunch break and find that you can meditate in pretty much anything you're comfortable in! Skirts not recommended. Layers encouraged! We keep the room slightly cooler during meditation to ward off the feeling of sleepiness. 
  • Can I sign up for class if I have never done yoga/meditation before? Yes! Absolutely. We don't level our classes because yoga should be accessible for all. Our classes are challenging enough for experienced yogis, but easy to follow for new students. If you listen with your ears and not your eyes, you'll have no problem following along. If you look up to find the instructors words lead you to a different posture than your fellow yogis...embrace it! Yoga is a constant practice and all we can do is work at it. 
  • I left something at the studio! How can I get it back? No worries! Just shoot us an email so we can put it aside for you. Please note that we have a 30 day lost and found policy and any unclaimed items will be donated to the Salvation Army after 30 days. 
  • How close will my mat be to someone else's? We keep things honest and try to be as transparent as possible over here! We have a small studio, but student safety takes first priority. Students are always welcome to use their own mats, but for convenience and organization we lay out mats beforehand (if you choose to use your own, just lift ours up and lay yours down in the same spot). We will always give you as much space as possible, but in our busiest classes (20 students max) you will have 23" of space in both front of and behind you, and 6.5" on each side. All other classes you will have more space. 
  • We do not accept cash or checks. Debit and credit cards only please! We are able to contribute to the reduction of carbon emissions from the transportation of money by not accepting cash. Additionally, as a cash free business, we are able to keep our storefront and employees safer, and process your transactions quicker. 
  • Please allow yourself time to arrive 15 minutes before the start of class in order to ensure a smooth check in and a few moments of calm before starting your practice. 
  • Please note that we share an address with the Wicker Park Chamber of Commerce. We are on the ground level and our door is two doors down (south) from them. 
  • All students are provided with a Jade yoga mat free of charge; mats will be laid out on the floor for you prior to the start of class. If you wish to you use your own mat, simply remove our mat from the floor, and in the same spot, place your own
  • Our studio is a toxin free zone. We use stone diffusers and organic essential oils to keep our air fresh, and clean all surfaces, and mats with natural, organic solutions which can be purchased in our retail section. 
  • While we keep things minimal by not having locker rooms, you can safely store your belongings in our check in area as the door is locked at the start of class. With one bathroom, sometimes a line can form when people are changing in there. Save yourself some time and come ready to practice. 
  • Help us in our commitment to being a green studio and bring your own bottle to enjoy our cold and hot bottleless water cooler. 
  • Our studio is a non heated vinyasa so while you'll sweat, you won't be drenched. Some students will find that they need a towel and others will find that they don't. We are able to save 43,800 gallons of water per year by encouraging students to bring their own towel. And while we don't have towel rentals, we do sell them, so you don't have to look far for a Mirepoix approved towel. 
  • We ask that upon entering the studio your shoes are removed before stepping onto our wood practice area. Yoga is always practiced in bare feet.

Class Descriptions

While our classes are categorized + described in a way that each student has the best idea of what the class entails, we encourage our teachers to find their own interpretation of each description. Vinyasa refers to a breath-synchronized movement, where each pose is matched with a breath. As a vinyasa studio, things would get stale pretty quickly if we had one sequence to follow, so each teachers interpretation is pulled from their own experiences, backgrounds, and personality. We recommend that students try a variety of classes to see which teachers they vibe with. 

 
 

power vinyasa

Our power class is for those looking for a faster pace class. Expect to focus on areas like your core, chatarungas, and building strength in all areas of the body. 

 

Mindful vinyasa

Our Mindful Vinyasa is a slower alternative to our power flow. In this class you can expect to hold poses a bit longer and explore breath to movement on a deeper level. Mindful Vinyasa is a moving meditation that helps you build strength while letting go on your mat. Please note that slower does not mean easier. 

 

hip hop vinyasa

A power vinyasa class with a twist. We'll flow to Jay Z, Nicki, Kendrick, Chance and more, while we move mindfully with intention and strength. Please note that music is unedited and may contain explicit language. We often set themes for our hip hop classes, so be sure to check our instagram @mirepoixstudio for updates! 

 

Sunrise flow

An energizing and uplifting class for the early bird. The sunrise flow works on breath to movement while building up to a peak energetic pose that's sure to wake you up and have you ready to go for the day ahead. A balanced blend of mindfulness and strength, and better than a cup of coffee.

Yin (Deep Release)

Yin yoga targets the deep connective tissues of the body (vs. the superficial tissues) and the fascia that covers the body. Yin helps regulate the flow of energy in the body. Yin postures are mainly on the floor and the majority of the postures are held anywhere from 45 seconds to 5 minutes. Students can expect a 15 minute vinyasa practice to heat the body and warm the muscles followed by 60 minutes of yin.  

 

guided meditation

Saturday Meditation – Breath Centered

This guided meditation uses breath as a tool for focus, mental clarity, and increased energy. Different breath techniques are used to steady the mind and create a deep sense of peace. 

Sunday Meditation – Heart Centered
This guided meditation practice takes you inward to connect deeply to your center. We use different techniques like mantra and visualization to release stress and negative energy and reconnect to self love.

Meditation is appropriate for all levels.

Zero Waste Initiative


As a business we believe it's our social responsibility to not only choose products that are safe for our students, but to also choose products that are safe for the environment. All of our bath tissue products are recycled and unbleached Seventh Generation. The cups, lids, and straws we use for water and kombucha are compostable, and are brought to a compost center to be properly disposed of weekly. We always strongly encourage students to bring their own reusable water bottles and fill up at our filtered water station. Did you also know that if you bring your own bottle for kombucha you pay just 25¢/oz to fill up? And that if you bring your own travel mug you can enjoy a complimentary hot tea? Our Jade yoga mats are made from trees and for every mat and block sold, another tree is planted in its place. They're also made in America. Our natural fiber meditation cushions are made right here in Chicago by a local manufacturer. The cushions are filled with buckwheat from a company that provides job opportunities for adults with disabilities. We also have a Nest thermostat controlled HVAC system so that we can save energy. We even removed the packaging from the products we sell so you don't have to worry about properly disposing of it! Have any questions about how you can reduce your own waste at home and choose products that are better for the environment? Have a suggestion on how we as a studio can do more to reduce our footprint or have a greater impact? Send us a note or ask one of our front desk team members next time you're in! Let's hold each other accountable!
