Studio Etiquette and Basic InformationAlways arrive quietly to your class 5-15 minutes before class time. It is very disruptive for other student to have people arriving late. Quiet upon entering the studio. Many people come to class a few minutes early to de-stress from the day and prepare for their practice. Bustling about, chatting and loud noises disrupt this calm setting. Those who need the quiet time thank you in advance. When you arrive at the studio, be mindful that another class may be in session. Speaking in a quiet voice will assist in keeping a calm and serene environment. If you have to leave early, please do so quietly and save conversation with friends until you get inside the Studio Practice Space. Footwear is left at the door. Going barefoot will give you the grip you need for certain poses and allows you to feel more relaxed at the same time. Bring socks if you get cold feet. Come to class clean and free of perfumes. The room can become quite warm and strong scents can be distracting to other students. If you have strong body odor, please consider the use of unscented deodorant. Please do not chew gum during your practice. The chewing disrupts a quiet mind, distracts others, as well as, being a choking hazard. Please turn off all pagers and cellphones. If at all possible, leave them in your car. Come to class with an empty stomach. Many poses affect the digestive system and having food in the stomach can result in nausea, vomiting or abdominal discomfort. Inform your teacher about any injuries, recent surgeries, health problems or changes (such as pregnancy) before class begins. Modifications can be used to assist your practice safely.

What do I wear? What do I bring? What else do I need to know?Clothing Be sure to wear comfortable clothing so you can move and breathe with ease. Wear clothing that will make it easier to stretch your muscles. It should be tight-fitting, but comfortable, like dancewear, yoga pants or a pair of shorts and a T-shirt or tank top is fine. Wear tops that can be tucked in so that your shirt will not float over your head. Yoga is done without shoes or socks. If your feet get cold, you may use socks that have grippy bottoms. If you have long hair, tie it back or it will fall in your face and obstruct your vision and may disturb your concentration. Supplies We highly recommend that any yoga practitioner, including beginners, have their own yoga mat. Your yoga mat not only provides a warm padding and a clean surface between you and the floor, it also allows you to practice without slipping and sliding. Yoga mats may be purchased at our Core Store. If you are new to yoga, we have some yoga mats available for use or if you would like, you could bring a towel. Additionally, you may want to bring a lightweight blanket for meditation and water to bring after class. NOTE: for hot yoga classes - you DEFINITELY want to have a water to rehydrate. Eating Yoga is best enjoyed on an empty stomach, so eat lightly or not at all before class. In some classes we will be bending and twisting, so you might be uncomfortable with food in your tummy. Arrival Always arrive quietly to your class 5-15 minutes before class time. This will give you time to remove your shoes and socks and get your spot set up so that class can start on time. It is very disruptive for other students to have people arriving late. Cell phones *** PLEASE SILENCE (Airplane mode) PHONES*** (or leave them in your vehicle). It is very disruptive to have them make sounds or vibrations, especially during Savasana.
