Yoga Manners

You can show respect for your fellow students by honoring the following guidelines:

  • Please arrive 5-10 minutes before class. If you do arrive after class has started, please enter the studio space and roll your mat out quietly.
  • Remove your shoes before entering the yoga studio.
  • Please turn off your cell phones. If you MUST bring your phone into the studio, please put it on vibrate mode.
  • Please line the front of your mat up with the stripe on the floor.
  • Introduce yourself to your neighbor. Feel free to chat in the studio before a class starts.
  • Please do not leave class early, the period of final relaxation is critical to gaining the full benefit of your yoga practice. If you MUST leave early, please notify your teacher before class starts and leave as quietly as possible.
  • After class, please use your towel to wipe up any excess moisture on the floor around your mat.
  • If you borrow a studio mat, please wipe it down with the studio cleaning solution and then place it a laundry basket. We clean all of the mats after each use, but ask our students to help get this process started with a quick wipe-down.
  • Yoga is great for children but our classes are designed for adults. If your child is able to focus in class and stay in the practice without talking, distracting you and the other students and/or leaving the room continuously, then you may bring them. Otherwise, please leave them with a qualified sitter. We do not have licensing or facilities to watch your children during class.
  • Have fun! Your energy affects your neighbors, so a good attitude will lift them up too!
