1. Remove Your Shoes upon entering the studio
Please use our cubicles for shoes and belongings.
2. Turn Off Your Cell Phone and place in our cubicles
Cellphone chatter, unending ring tones and texting are roundly booed!
3. Arrive On Time
Arrive 5 to 10 minutes before the class is scheduled to start. If you do arrive late, don’t enter a class more than 5 minutes late if it has already started. Wait for the next class or another day.
4. Mind your Personal Hygiene
Go Easy on Perfume and Cologne
5. Minimize Conversation
The few minutes before class are ideal for a short meditation and for setting an intention so refraining from chit-chat is not just good etiquette but also really beneficial for your state of mind.
Please settle down quietly upon entering the studio.
6. Observe silence during Savasana
Practice silence during Savasana and however tempted you may be to leave and skip out, resist it. This is where your practice assimilates and the results are infused with a rest so well-deserved and so necessary. If you must (really must!) leave before the end, leave before people settle into Savasana and be as quiet as a church mouse!
7. 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. Usually the teacher will offer this option. 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.
When it comes time to take a vinyasa, always feel free to take either Knees, Chest, and Chin and Cobra OR Chaturanga and Updog.
9. Clean your Immediate Area
If you used props, put them back the way you found them.
10. Sign in or Pay without a Reminder
Remember to give $10 to $15 to your teacher or send them payment through Venmo (your teacher will have their Venmo scan code or name on the front desk). Yoga is not generally free. Remember your payment arrangement without a reminder from the teacher.
