Please visit the sign-in desk before class.
Signing in for every class is essential for payment purposes and so that we can compensate our teachers according to class attendance.
Turn off all cell phones and pagers (or just leave them at home!)
Remove shoes before entering the practice space (cork or hardwood floor).
Roll mats out quietly.
Please arrive at least five minutes before class begins.
If you are taking class from a teacher who is new to you, arrive early to inform them of any injuries or conditions.
When you're waiting outside, please be quiet as there may be a class in progress. Yes, they can hear you!
If you are late for unavoidable reasons, wait outside the practice space until teacher invites you in. Then please join class quietly. In order to avoid injury, if you arrive later than 15 minutes after the start of class, you will not be able to attend (this does not apply to Pre/Postnatal classes due to check-in circle).
Be still during chanting and meditation. This is NOT the time to find your spot.
Move your mat to make space in crowded classes.
Please observe basic hygiene when attending yoga class.
Refrain from perfumes and oils as many people are allergic.
Consider bringing your own yoga mat; it is more hygienic.
Spray and wipe rental mats after use. Hang up if still wet.
Stack props neatly. Place cotton blankets with fringes facing back.
Reduce skin-to-skin contact with our props by wearing a shirt. This also makes it easier for teachers to make adjustments. If you tend to sweat, bring a towel to class.
Please do not use our blankets to wipe sweat from the floor or your body.
"Namaste" literally means: the divine in me bows to the divine in you. Every moment we are together-from the street outside, to class, to back outside again-we have the opportunity to respect and appreciate one another. Here are some wise and gracious yogi and yogini etiquette guidelines.
