Yoga Etiquette 101: Create the Best Class Possible

By March 30, 2022No Comments

Some simple and friendly reminders…
A tradition as ancient and beautiful as yoga comes with a certain level of implied etiquette. Not loud and explicit rules, but soft and subtle ones. We want to take a moment to remind you of some simple etiquette that will help our entire community run more smoothly. With a mindset of learning and respecting etiquette, your yoga experience expands.

Be like Ganesha – The lord of success and remover of obstacles!

Be on time
We understand things happen, but do your best to be on time so class isn’t disrupted once started. Shoot us a call if you are going to be late!

Get Comfortable
Remove your shoes! We are a barefoot/slipper only zone – Please remove your shoes in the lobby help keep our space clean.

Get unplugged
Refrain from bringing your cell phones into the room — phones and Apple watches are distracting for you and others.

Clear is Kind
Tell your teacher if you are injured.
Need to leave early? Let us know before class so we don’t worry!
(Safety is our priority – we like to know that you are ok)

Be Mindful
Lower the volume of your conversations in the hot room before class & keep clutter to a minimum.
Please do not speak during class or Savasana
Can’t stay for Savasana? Leave quietly

Scent Sensitivities
Minimize your use of perfumes/lotions before class
Do not spray anything scented in the room i.e. homemade mat spray
(Strong odors & scents can irritate – especially those with allergies. We diffuse Thieves essential oil for a short burst between classes and our lavender cold hand towels have lavender essential oil.)

Lavender Wash Cloths
If you do not want a towel for any reason, please keep your palms face DOWN.
If you do want a towel, please put you palms face UP to receive.

Keep it Clean
Return your rentals
Leave your space sweat and trash free!
If you use a tissue, please keep in on your mat and take it with ya.
Please bring an extra towel to clean your puddle after class if needed.

Power Shower
We know how amazing a shower feels after class – but please limit your shower to 2 minutes.

Exit the Room Quietly
Please don’t let the door slam behind you
Enter and leave the room quietly
