Make it part of your yoga practice to arrive early.
Getting to class about 10 minutes early can help you sign in, settle in and align your attitude with the purpose of the class.
Don’t wear scented products or lotion before practice. The scents can get stronger during practice and bother others.
Tell your teacher about any injuries or special health conditions that might affect your practice. If you are injured or tired, skip poses you can't or shouldn't do or try a modified version. Understand that child’s pose is a resting pose and is available to you at any time during the session.
Remove your shoes before entering the studio
Please silence cell phones and leave belongings in the cubbies near the lobby. If you must bring your phone into the studio please make sure that it will not be a distraction to you or anyone else.
Keep your eyes on your own practice, and try not to compare yourself to others. Yoga is an individual journey.
Be aware of the space around you - avoid bumping into your neighbor - avoid stepping on other people's mats.
Come with an empty stomach. Allow 2-3 hours digestion after a large meal.
Hydrate before and after practice!
Do not leave during Savasana (final relaxation pose). If a situation arises and you must leave early, please let the teacher know before class starts.
Always create an intention. To help you focus, you might find it helpful to dedicate your practice to a certain intention. This might be to become more aware and understanding, more loving and compassionate, or healthier, stronger and more skillful.
All of our classes are multi-level however read class descriptions and take the class that's appropriate for your level of experience.
Pick up and neatly put away any props you use. Be a good yogi and clean your borrowed mat before putting it away. Mat disinfectant is kept at the studio.
Speak in hushed tones while in the studio. Talking is best done in the lobby outside the yoga room.
Come in with an open mind and an open heart and take time afterwards to think about what you did in class, so you can retain what you learned.
The most important thing…enjoy yourself and have fun with your yoga practice!
