ARRIVING TO CLASS
Please make it habit to arrive to the studio on time or early in order to find a spot for your mat, place personal belongings in cubbies, and allowing a few extra minutes for yourself in seated meditation to “center in”. Coming in late, after the start of class is disruptive to other students and to the flow of class.
LEAVE NEGATIVE ENERGY AT THE DOOR
We all have busy and often hectic lives and some days more so than others. Whether it’s work, family, traffic or friends; please be sure to leave that bad energy at the door making room for new positive energy to fill you up and allowing you the opportunity to let go.
No cell phones in class ever! If you are having an emergency and need your phone close, then be sure it is set on silent.
MAKE SPACE FOR OTHERS
Provide enough space for fellow yogis, by leaving personal belongings outside in the cubbies. Move your mat if more space is needed and make sure everyone can see themselves in the mirror.
Avoid strong smelling perfumes or colognes as some people might be sensitive to them. Make sure to tell an instructor before the start of class if you are sensitive to essential oils.
Make sure you are practicing proper hygiene before class. It is recommended that you bathe before and after practicing yoga.
Remember that this studio is a sacred place for most people. It is like the ocean is to surfers. Respect it and take care of it. Honor the studio rules to make it an enjoyable space for all.
TAKE WHAT YOU’VE LEARNED WITH YOU
Take the positive, community minded, energy that you’ve cultivated here during class, out into the rest of your day. Practice ahimsa “non violence” in the words you speak. Spread the sense of peace and gratitude to others around you.
