Studio Etiquette

Please Take Responsibility for the Energy You Bring Into This Space

Practice Ahimsa by being gentle in voice, energy, movement, actions and attitude. This respects those who come to yoga for a safe, healing, sacred environment.

Share the Love, Not the Germs

We are all about sharing, but not when it comes to germs! If you are sick, pretty please stay home as not to spread your illness.

Hygiene

Please be mindful that all odours are unfortunately amplified in the hot room (perfume, body odour, cigarettes, etc.)

Please wear deodorant, wash your yoga mat, clothes and yourself regularly.

In case of allergies, please do not wear perfumes to class.

Quiet Please – This Is a No Talk Zone

Once you enter the studio, its time to turn inward. Please respect the quiet & sacred space of the practice room. Please do not talk or whisper inside the studios. Please be quiet when unravelling your mat and setting up props.

Respect Space

To maximize space, line up your mat with the others. Be very careful not to step on other peoples mats.

Punctuality

Late comers will not be permitted to enter the room – no exceptions.

We recommend arriving 15 minutes before class to sign in and also give yourself a few extra minutes to lay out your mat, gather props, and bring your breath to an even and steady pace.

Cell Phones and Personal Items

Your yoga equipment and water bottle are the only things permitted in the practice studios.

Cell phones, purses, bags, jackets, shoes and clothing and food are not permitted in the practice room. There are lockers to be used at your own discretion.

Reservation & Sign-in

Sign-in at the front desk is required before every class (this includes back to back classes).

If you want a guaranteed spot, it is a good idea to reserve online before class. Otherwise, reserve upon arrival – pending availability.

Hydrate, and Hydrate Some More

Come to class well hydrated. Bring water into class. Avoid caffeine if possible before.
Eat lightly 2-3 hours prior to practice. Remember to drink plenty of water after your class.

Adding electrolytes can also be beneficial. We do supply these in our boutique if you don’t have any.

All For One

We are a team: we start class together and we finish together. Please arrive on time and stay for the whole duration of the class, including the final savasana (unless there is a medical emergency).

Savasana is the most important part of our yoga practice. It allows us to reap the benefits of our physical endeavors. It enables us to bring yoga from asana into self-awareness through meditation.

Respect Your Teacher

While we encourage modifications, please respect the sequence the teacher has planned and save your self practice for at home.

Off the Mat, Into the World

Spread this sense of peace you find in your practice to others throughout your day.
Smile and chat with your classmates. Be kind and love one another.
