Basic Yoga Guidelines
Come to class on time with a positive learning attitude. You must check-in at the front desk. If a student arrives late, be gracious and make room!
We practice yoga on an empty stomach. Please eat 1-2 hours prior to class, giving your food time to digest before class.
Please never enter or leave a studio when the class is centering, during relaxation or in meditation. Let your teacher know if you have to leave class early.
Wear comfortable workout clothing. No zippers or belts. We do yoga barefoot. Please leave you shoes outside the yoga space on the shoe rack.
Please inform each of your teachers about any injuries, problem areas, or ailments you have.
If you have any questions please ask your teacher at that moment in class, you and everyone else will benefit more. If you have a question of a highly personal nature you are always welcome to talk to us in private.
When you feel discomfort or pain, stop. Yoga is about sensation, not pain. Find comfort, ease and stability in your practice. If at anytime during class you feel pain, please stop and inform your teacher. Struggling and straining are not part of the practice.
No food or beverages in the practice area. Water is permitted.
Drink lots of water after your yoga practice. Please help yourself to cold water, hot water for an assortment of delicious teas or treats in the waiting area.
Please do not step on other students’ yoga mats!
Do not come to class if you have a contagious condition. Children need to be symptom free for at least 24 hours.
Please return all props to their place. Props include mats, belts, blocks, blankets and chairs. Neat and tidy!
Please keep the yoga room tidy during class by placing all personal belongings (purses, jackets, etc) on the hooks provided outside the yoga rooms not near your mats.
It is ok to sweat during practice. It assists the purification process through movement and heat. Bring your own towel or practice rug to absorb sweat--our blankets are not to be used for this purpose!
If you find your mat is "slippery" we suggest bringing a towel to class. We also suggest diluting eucalyptus oil in water and spraying it on your hands or mat to help with the sliding!
Practice compassion towards yourself and others. No judgments or expectations. Don’t take it too seriously, have fun with it!!!
