Studio Etiquette

Book Class Ahead of Time

In order for our instructors to plan ahead and to use our time wisely we ask that you book your class ahead of time. If we have no one booked for the class within 2 hours before class start, we will cancel class.

If you cannot attend, cancel class at least 2 hours before class start time

Make sure you cancel a minimum of 2 hours prior to your class if you are unable to attend. If you do end up late canceling/no showing for your session- we will be charging a $10 late fee to the card we have on file.

Remove Your Shoes

Yoga is practiced barefoot so please leave your shoes and socks in the cubbies provided.

Don’t Skip Savasana

The final relaxation pose, called Corpse Pose — “Savasana” (shah-VAHS-uh-nuh) in Sanskrit — is vital to your practice. It’s a time for stillness and deep rest that lets your body fully receive the benefits of yoga. If you absolutely must leave early, let your teacher know prior to class and leave quietly before Savasana starts. Be sure to allow sufficient time to collect your mat and belongings.

Put Your Props Away After Class

If you’ve used blocks or straps, please sanitize them before you place them back the way you found them. If you borrowed a mat from the studio, wipe it down before taking it back to the front desk.

Turn Off Your Cell Phone

This is a time to be free of distractions of daily life. If absolutely necessary to bring phone in please silence, not set to vibrate or leave with other belongings in lobby area.

Arrive 5-10 Minutes Early

Students arriving 10+ minutes late will not be allowed to enter as it is disruptive to class. Arriving early allows plenty of time to settle in, get centered, and prepare for practice. Unroll your mat quietly, so as not to disturb students who are already there. Check in with your mood and begin to let go of outside thoughts and concerns. Lie quietly, or do some gentle warm-up poses.

Respect the Space

Practicing yoga in a group setting creates a sacred, safe zone. Observe silence before, during, and after practice. Remember, you never know how someone else’s day is going. This class time might be their only downtime to unwind from their week. Kindly respect other’s space and try not to step on other’s mats. This is your time to zen and check out of life.

Practice Cleanliness

Apply the yogic principle of saucha, which means “cleanliness” or “purity.” Personal hygiene is an integral part of practicing yoga. Ensure that you and your mat are clean before practice. Further, avoid heavy fragrances.

Honor Your Limits

For your safety, as well as respect for the teacher and other students, do not go to a class that is beyond your current level. Work from where you are, not where you think you should be. Never force to hold or attain a pose. Ask for modifications and practice your moves with control.

If you have an injury, illness or medical condition please let your teacher know before class. This includes if you are expecting.
