Class Strategy:

  • Drink lots of water, ahead of time.  
  • Stay in the room, but sit or lay down as much as you need to (truly!).
  • Follow the posture instructions, to the degree your body allows. If a pose includes something that you cannot yet do, stay there and practice that part befoere you try to add on to it.  

What to bring:

  • an open mind (truly!) 
  • water, mat, and a towel - or you can rent / purchase these items

Yoga Etiquette (how to be a great yogi):

  • Please arrive to class 10-15 minutes early. Our classes begin promptly on time. No late arrivals: doors are locked when class begins for security purposes.  
  • Please turn off or silence your phone when you arrive. All cell phone use is to be done outside of the studio.
  • Belongings may be stored on the shelves outside of the yoga studio, or in one of the lockers or hooks provided in the changing rooms.
  • Please do not apply perfume, scented oils or lotions just prior to entering the studio. Some students have odor sensitivities and/or allergies.
  • Have fun! There is no judgment, no fashion show, just a great workout and great people!
  • Be well hydrated, which occurs mainly *before* class. 
  • For most people; Don’t practice on a full stomach (light foods such as bananas or yogurts tend to be easier to practice with)
  • Listen to your body! Sit or lay down as you need to, but try to stay in the room.
