Yoga Etiquette and Good Practices
• Arrive a few minutes before class begins. If you must arrive late, please wait quietly at the back until the class finishes the centering practice, which happens at the beginning of each class.
• Please bring your own mat to class. Although there are a couple of loaner mats available, it is a good idea to practice using your own personal mat for both sanitary and energetic reasons.
• Inform your teacher of any injuries or concerns you may have.
• Be aware of good hygiene to keep the practice space clean and welcoming. No strong perfumes, please.
• Unless you have a special need, please turn off your cellphone before class begins.
• Leave your competitive nature at home. Honor your inner voice and your edge.
• In keeping with the yogic principle of “Saucha” (clarity, purity), set your mat out in an even and orderly fashion and avoid ‘camping out’, i.e. having jackets, bags, etc. clustered around you. This helps to maintain clarity of alignment in the room, which in turn helps to create clarity and alignment in the body and mind.
• Keep your awareness on your breath and your practice. Guide your focus inward. Avoid looking around too much. Avoid too much chatting with other students.
• Have a light heart and a good time. Laugh at your teacher’s – jokes even if they are not funny!
• Leave time for a good Savasana (relaxation pose) at the end of class. If you have to leave early, let your teacher know and take your own Savasana before you go. Do not leave during the class Savasana so as to not disturb this time of stillness.
• Please return all props neatly to their appropriate place. Take time to re-fold blankets neatly.
• Move slowly and with awareness to maintain the vibrancy and stillness you have gained during class.
• Breathe and offer the fruits of your practice outward to all you encounter.
