Please respect these studio etiquette guidelines to ensure new and seasoned students have an amazing hot yoga experience!
- Check in at the desk before dropping your mat and heading to the changing rooms.
- BE ON TIME! Class starts on time. Doors may be locked after the class starts.
- No shoes in the yoga room.
- Please leave all personal belongings in the shelves provided, nothing is allowed in the yoga room except water, towel, and mat ( -EVERYTHING ELSE- stays outside).
- No talking in the yoga room before or after class. Many students will arrive early to practice Savasana before the practice. Be respectful and keep all conversations quietly in the lobby.
- Come to class well hydrated and with an empty stomach.
- Leave your ego & negative thoughts at the door!
- Practice the art of listening. Follow the instructor and try honestly to do what they are guiding you to do.
- Try hard to eliminate excess movements between postures. Avoid fidgeting, wiping sweat, looking around the room. It will be hard at first, but awareness is half the battle!
- If you need to take a break during class, do so mindfully. Be aware that while you might need a rest, your yogi neighbor is still deep in their meditation and practice. Be respectful by staying still.
- Water breaks are at designated times in the sequence. If you need additional water during class, try to take it in between postures.
- Do your best to stay in the room during class. Leaving the class is disruptive to your practice and to your fellow students.
- Stay in class through Savasana, practice is not complete without final rest. Honor yourself and your fellow yogis by closing the practice together.
- Be quiet as you exit the yoga room.
- The floors are often slippery, use caution and watch your step.
- Rental mats/towels should be placed in the hamper outside of the practice space.
- The studio closes 30 minutes after class has ended.
- Drink plenty of water.
- Last, but not least, thank yourself. The work you did was hard and deserves recognition. A little bit of gratitude to yourself goes a long way!
