All Hot Classes
- A large and small towel
- Hydrate throughout day
- Bring Water!
- Remove your shoes: it is customary to leave your shoes outside of the studio room, as we will be spending a good portion of the class on the floor.
- Turn off your cell phone! It is distracting to those whom come to Yoga to escape the outside. Only phones that are allowed on the mat are those on call in the medical and/or police/fire fighter profession. But, phones must be on vibrate, hidden under your towel and answered outside the yoga room.
- Arrive at least 5-10 minutes before the class is scheduled to start. If you do arrive late, don't enter a class more than 10 minutes after it has already started.
- Respect the teacher! When you enter a yoga class, you agree to respect the teacher for the length of the class. You may discover halfway through the class that you don't care for the teacher's style, or the time of the day. But we encourage you to still continue the class, follow the teachers instructions, take your relation and be open to the experience.
- Respect your fellow students. Talking to ask if someone can see, asking for assistance to setup your space is certainly okay. But chatting with your friends is discouraged. Many students come to Yoga class early, specifically to relax and mediate.
- Keep Variations appropriate. Keep in mind the level of the class you are attending. If it is an advanced class and some of the poses are too hard, it is fine to take a more basic variation of the poses being taught. If you are attending a basic class, stick to the basic versions of the poses so you don't confuse new students. The teacher will offer you the option to take a more advanced variation when appropriate.
- Leaving the room is okay is you must. But, you want to wait until we are between postures or having a break. Please refrain from walking in front of others while they are attempting asanas. When you are ready to re-enter, peek in and make sure we are between postures or on a break.
- Please don't skip Savasana! Your final relaxation is an important part of your practice. Don't plan to leave class early. If you must, tell a teacher in advance and take a short Savasana before you go. Don't make a habit of this!
- Refrain from wearing scented lotion, perfume or body spray. As some students are allergic to these scents and it can disrupt their practice.
- No gum or candy is aloud, as it can become a severe choking hazard.
- Please refrain from loud noises. Such as heavy breathing, grunting or moaning. Yoga is not always easy or comfortable, but you want to breath as directed in the postures. Grunting, groaning or moaning will not make the postures any easier nor will it let others know how hard you are trying. It can become a distraction and disturbing to those close to you.
