Ever wonder how a yoga class can seem to be filled with people who know exactly what to do? How do they know they should take off their shoes? How do they know where to sit? What do I do? Well....it is all really very easy. Yoga is usually a group of like minded people who are kind, open hearted and welcoming...until...they aren't. Actually I kid, a little. The thing about yoga is that yogis are really no different than anyone else. They appreciate and enjoy a little respect. Respect for each other, for personal space, and a love of common sense. Take a look at some of these suggestions and relax, enjoy, and have a great time in any class. If you still come out of a class feeling like you were out of place, don't give up...just try another class. You will find the perfect fit for you! Namaste
Be on time-if you are late please remove your shoes and come in quietly after warm up.
Do not wear perfume, scented lotions or after shave
Turn off your cell phones all the way off (not vibe)
Wear loose comfortable clothing (preferably not short shorts-yoga is traditionally done bare head and feet)
If it hurts, don’t do it! You are the only one who knows your body. If you have body issues please let your instructor know before class.
If you must leave early, please leave before meditation.
R-E-S-P-E-C-T ! Yoga is different than many other fitness classes. It is important to be respectful of your instructor and your fellow students.
Thank you-your Yoga instructors and fellow students
