Helpful Hints, Reminders & Student Guidelines

  • Arrive 15 minutes prior to class. Late entries will be allowed only during the first breathing exercise (within 10 minutes of the start of class.)
  • Hydrate well before and after class. It is best to replace electrolytes before class begins
  • Remove shoes before entering the Yoga Studio.
  • Use restroom prior to class beginning to avoid disrupting your practice
  • Mat, large towel and water only permitted in Yoga Studio. 
  • Grippy socks and small towel required for all barre classes.
  • Please leave ALL personal belongings in change rooms. This includes CELL & SMART PHONES. Remember 90% of stress is self induced.
  • Place large towel over Yoga mat to prevent slipping and dripping sweat on the floor.

Your practice begins when you enter the room and we encourage you to meditate and stretch before class and kindly ask that you : 

  • Remain SILENT while you are in the Yoga Studio. Please enjoy chatting outside of the studio either before or after class.
  • Lie on your back, head toward the long mirrors, feet toward the door.
  • We recommend if you have taken more than 5 classes to please fill the first row. 1st time students should place their mat in the back row, close to the door.
  • Staying present on your own mat will help you stay focused. At the conclusion of your practice you should feel as if you were the only person in the room.
  • The mat is available to you at anytime to take rest, be kind and loving to yourself and accept where you are. Always listen to your body.
  • If you feel dizzy, lightheaded or nauseous take rest on your mat in stillness, it will pass. Please try not to leave the room.
  • Advise teacher of any pre-existing injuries or special conditions prior to class.
  • Always cover your mouth when sneezing or coughing & use tissues. Keep used tissues on your Yoga Mat under your towel and dispose of after class. Please do not leave used tissues on the floor.
  • Please wait for the Instructor to finish class before leaving the room. If you must leave class early, please advise instructor prior to class.
  • Never enter or leave the room while class is in meditation.
