Please refrain from wearing scented lotion, cologne, or perfume to class as many people are scent sensitive. Consider switching to unscented laundry products if possible.
No cell phones/communication devices on the yoga mat. Either leave it in your car, or turn it completely off and leave it in your purse or by your shoes. If you are on call, or need the phone for a potential emergency, let the instructor know before class begins.
Arrive a few minutes early for class so you can get props and be settled when class begins. If you do arrive a few minutes late, enter quietly and sit near the back of the room until it is appropriate to get your props and set your mat. This typically means waiting until the centering portion of class is finished.
Remove your shoes prior to entering the practice space.
Wear comfortable clothing that allows for freedom of movement and provides adequate coverage of buttocks, breasts and undergarments. Students are asked to keep shirts on during practice.
It is recommended to refrain from eating anything heavy 1 to 2 hours before practice.
Let the instructor know if you need to leave early and take rest and exit before the rest of the class takes rest. Ideally it is best to stay for the entire class.
Please stay home and do your own practice if you have had a fever in the past 72 hours, or if you are actively sick with frequent coughing and nose blowing OR if you have been around someone with a fever or who is sick.
Take care of yourself! Respect the limits of your body each and every day. Yoga is not about what you do, but rather about how you do it. Stop if you experience pain or discomfort and rest or modify your practice as needed.
