FAQ's (frequently answered questions)
To offer all students the most positive and beneficial yoga experience,
please take a few minutes to review the Center’s etiquette guidelines
Choose a class that is appropriate for you. Please take a look at "Our Classes" for descriptions to you as you make your selection.
A teacher will be happy to assist you in this. Taking a class that is not suitable
for you will not only affect you, but will also affect the others in the class.
Eating before Class:
PLEASE DO NOT eat for two or three hours
before your class.
Yoga practice requires an empty belly. Your energy in class should
be focused on your practice, if your body is busy digesting food,
only part of your energy is contributing to your practice. And if
the teacher decides to include Nauli, or a lot of forward folding,
it won't feel very good having food in your belly ; - )
Before Class Preparations:
Bring your own mat.
Arrive free of perfumes and colognes. Some students are very sensitive
to smells please refrain from heavy scents.
Wear comfortable loose fitting clothes. If you are coming to a class
which offers inversion poses (where you are upside down) make sure
your top is fitted enough that you can go upside without feeling
self-conscious that your shirt will be falling over your head.
Arriving and leaving class:
Arrive 10 - 15 minutes early.
This will allow you to change, use the bathroom and settle
in to the practice space before class begins. Giving yourself just
a few minutes on your mat before practice can allow you to be more
present for your practice.
The doors to the studio will be locked promptly at the start
Schedule your time so you do not need to rush to yoga.
If at all possible, PLEASE DO NOT leave early; it’s
disruptive to others.
If you absolutely must leave early and you know before hand inform
the teacher and choose a spot close to the door so you will not disrupt
others from their practice.
- Injuries or physical conditions: Let your teacher
know about injuries or conditions that might affect your practice.
A teacher will offer modifications of poses to suit your needs.
- Before entering the practice space:
Turn off your cell phone and leave it in the cubby.
Remove shoes and leave them in the cubby, along with other personal
items. The door to the studio is locked at the start of each class,
for your safety and for the security of your personal belongings.
Keep the area around your mat clean.
Only bring water into the space if you absolutely
need to hydrate yourself during practice. Remember that you are
building internal heat this heat is part of the cleansing process
that will detoxify your body, drinking during practice puts out
Allow yourself to enter into a sacred and peaceful
space for your practice. Create an intention for your practice -
to become more aware, more compassionate, healthier and happier.
Thank you for taking the time to read and honor these guidelines.
honoring the spirit of the practice, we will allow each other a more meaningful
experience of yoga.
