Studio Etiquette & What to Expect

  • Please arrive on time for class. Even a little early would be good so that you do not disturb class and you can settle in and get ready for your practice.
  • Wear comfortable clothing that allows full range of motion, and since many classes in the studio are warm, be sure not to overdress.
  • Often beginners may feel an array of different feelings, from tight hips, to cluttered mind, nausea, dizziness, and a flood of unaddressed emotions, all which are a part of the cleansing and detoxification process of yoga. These do subside as you continue to practice yoga.
  • There are mats and props available at the studio, but some people prefer to bring their own private mats and props which is welcomed. If using our mats we have cleaner for you to wipe down your mat with.
  • A full water bottle is recommended.
  • Please turn your cell phones off in the studio.
  • Use your quiet voices in the hallways so you do not disturb classes and also in respect to those who may be receiving body work.
  • Please let your teacher know if you are pregnant, have any injuries or mobility limitations, or if you are on any strong medications.
  • Remember to listen to your body. It is important to move mindfully in your practice. Try to be content with where your body is at. Be patient with your practice, and take modifications when needed. If you are not sure of what modification to use please ask your teacher.
