- Arrive 10 minutes early to find parking, sign in and familiarize yourself with our facilities. As arriving late to class may be distruptive to other students, no late entries will be allowed. Doors will be locked 2 mins before class, so that classes can start on time.
- All classes are best practiced on an empty stomach. Try to eat light 2-3 hours before class.
- Yoga is practiced barefoot so upon entering the studio, leave your shoes in the reception area.
- Turn off cell phones that may be disruptive to others.
- Leave all personal belongings at home, or on the hooks or in the cubicles in the reception space.
- Avoid wearing any strong scents.
- Let your instructor know of any injury or medical condition (including pregnancy) before class starts.
- Keep voices low while in the studio, reception area and change rooms.
- Wear light-weight clothes to class so you can move easily
- Once the instructor begins class, refrain from talking to others in the yoga room.
- No chewing gum while practicing.
- Remember to pick up and neatly put away props used during the class.
- To maximize benefits from your practice, stay for a full savasana, the final relaxation pose.
- Use a towel, especially in a hot class where you will sweat.
- Go at your own pace. Be gentle and respectful towards your body, never moving to the point of pain.
- If you feel dizzy or need to rest, it’s okay. Listen to your body, breathe and take a rest.
- Drink plenty of water before and after each class, especially if you are practicing hot yoga.
- If you must leave early, tell the instructor in advance, place your mat near the door and leave quietly before everyone gets into savasana, the final relaxation pose.
- Be patient. It usually takes about ten classes before you get into the flow of the class.
