- Arrive 10 – 15 minutes early to allow time to sign-in and prepare for your class. Out of respect for others, students who arrive 15 minutes or later will not be accepted into classes.
- Yoga is practiced in bare feet. Please take off your shoes upon entering Yogaspace. * For hygienic reasons, students may choose to bring their own mat. If you forget your mat, you can rent one for a fee of $2. Yogaspace also sells mats.
- Wear comfortable, lightweight, flexible clothing such as shorts, T-shirts, leggings or
work-out wear. Most important is that you are unconstricted by your clothing.
- If you have long hair, you will want to pull it off your face with an elastic or clip. We have extras at the studio if you forget yours.
- There are showers in the change rooms so bring a towel or rent one from us if you would like to have a shower after your class.
- Yoga is best practiced on an empty stomach. We suggest you not eat for about two hours before practicing.
- For the comfort of others, please refrain from wearing perfume or cologne.
- Please turn off your cell phone before entering Yogaspace.
- If you have to leave class early, let your teacher know before class begins and place your mat close to the door so that when you leave quietly, you do not disrupt others. Try to rest for a few minutes at the end of your practice and leave before the rest of the class comes into Savasana. Do not leave during Savasana as this can be disruptive. Leave your props where they are rather than walking to return props while the class is resting. The teacher will happily pick up your props and put them away after you have left and the class is finished.
Yoga is most beneficial when practiced regularly… We encourage students to develop a personal practice even if it means only getting down on your mat for 10 minutes a day. Chances are, that 10 minutes will turn into 30 minutes. Working with a qualified teacher in a yoga class is meant to inspire the discipline of personal practice. It also provides you with important personal feedback about posture, alignment, technique, function and sequencing which you can apply to your personal practice.
Everybody is Unique
We encourage individuals to find a style of yoga that best suits their particular needs and interests. Please don’t hesitate to speak to us about what style of yoga might best suit your needs at this time in your life. Yoga is not something that only some people can do. There is a yoga for everyone.
Yoga is Non-competitive
Be compassionate with yourself. Stay connected to your inner teacher. Stop whenever you need to take a break. Listen to the messages your body is sending you as you practice. Learn to recognize the difference between sensation and pain. You should never feel pain while practicing yoga.
