HAPPENINGS @ PG PORTLAND

Start Here

On your first visit to Planet Granite there are a couple of things you will need to do before you climb.

Complete a liability waiver AND present a government-issued photo ID card.

Waiver

For participants under 18 years of age…Please be sure that all minors have a WAIVER fully completed and signed by their parents or legal guardian.

If the parent or guardian will not be present, please bring a photocopy of their government-issued photo identification (for signature verification) Please note: legal guardians must present proof of guardianship to sign a child’s waiver. To find out more about bringing kids into our facility, click here.

Experienced climbers. Must take a belay test. Those new to Planet Granite or returning members/guests who have not been in the facility for one year or more have to take a belay test. This is what lets you belay in our gyms!

New to climbing.
We recommend signing up for our introductory belay lesson for your first visit. This class will teach you to manage the ropes. Have other questions, check out our FAQ page!

You’re ready to climb!

New To Yoga

Our classes are open to all levels of yoga students. Try a couple of different styles and instructors to see what suits your needs best, but a good class to start with is Yoga Foundations (Sunnyvale or San Francisco) or Foundations of Flow (Belmont) classes. Please arrive early and let the instructor know that you’re new to yoga. Always be sure to let him/her know if you are working with injuries or special conditions. Listen to the instructions that the teacher explains during each pose to make sure your body is in the right position; often the instructor will describe modifications to the pose for beginners. Most importantly, remember to breathe and to have fun!

What do I bring and/or wear?

Wear comfortable, stretchy workout clothing that allows you to move freely. You’ll need a yoga mat and a towel. We rent mats at the front desk for $1 and towels are available in the studio. Please bring a lock if you would like to use our complimentary lockers.

Why should I practice yoga?

A yoga practice will increase your flexibility and tone your muscles. It promotes cardio and circulatory health, improved balance and better posture. Yoga also teaches you how to quiet the mind and bring focus to where you want your energy to go… whether it’s a yoga practice, a hard route you want to climb or a difficult day at the office! It’s a perfect complement to your climbing and fitness programs. Planet Granite offers all three with one membership!

How long are the classes?

Our yoga classes are generally 75-90 minutes long. Weekday noon classes are 60-75 minutes. If you need to leave early from a class, please let your instructor know before class. In addition, if there is a class ahead of you, please wait to enter the room until the instructor has opened the door. Please check your local gym’s schedule for specific times.

Why are some classes heated?

Warm muscles are more elastic and less susceptible to injury. A heated room makes it easier to warm up and obtain a better range of motion during class.

What should I not bring to Yoga?

As breathing is a very important part of yoga, we ask you to please refrain from wearing strong perfumes or products in class. In addition, if you are having trouble breathing (congestion, sniffles, coughs), your body might be telling you to rest and heal. It might be best if you wait until the next class. Please do not bring cell phones to class.

Is Yoga Foundations for me?

If it’s your first class or you are fairly new to yoga this is the place to start! In this class, you will learn the basic tools to build a progressive practice over time. If you are an advanced student, this class will allow you to explore the finer subtleties of each pose. It’s an opportunity to remove some of the old habits that prevent you from moving on into deeper more advanced postures. Each class will build on something different, from sun salutations to cobra pose and even abdominals, breaking down the movement so that each student learns proper form and alignment. Stick with this class and you will slowly build strength and a “foundation” on which to build your practice.

Climbing with Kids

Kids are natural born climbers. At Planet Granite, we have developed a number of programs that allow kids to experience the benefits of climbing.

Our most popular kids’ event is birthday parties. If this will be both you and your child’s first time at Planet Granite, we recommend reserving a spot in our Parent/Child Belay Lessons. This lesson teaches you, the parent, how to manage the ropes for your child!

Other options to consider are our After School Programs, Winter, Spring and Summer Camps and Parents’ Night Off. Your child can climb during our drop-in climbing, where a staff member belays them and other children. Or if they’d like to climb non-stop with a staffer belaying, we are always happy to provide a private belayer for your child, please contact us at (503) 477-5666 for more information.
