Centering at the beginning of practice is important to get focused. Preparing for practice in a mindful way aids you in a deeper and more satisfying practice and gets you in-tune with what your needs are on a particular day. There are times when two classes are scheduled concurrently. If so, please refrain from walking through the other class during their practice. The instructors will do their best to end the two classes on time to accommodate you.
During your session your yoga instructor will assist you in alignment with verbal instructions, and may also assist you with physical adjustments. Most instructors ask permission before touching you. Please let your instructor know if you are not comfortable with a physical assist and your personal space will be respected. If you feel any pain during a pose, please let the instructor know and they will provide you with a modification more suited to your body.
Please come to class with clean feet and refrain from wearing heavy perfumes or lotions, noisy jewelry or anything else that may create an uncomfortable practice for other students. Likewise, please let us know if you are allergic to, or uncomfortable with any scents as we may use aroma therapy oils during or at the end of the class.
Some classes will use props (blocks, straps, blankets or bolsters) to assist you in experiencing a safer and healthier yoga practice. We welcome your use of our props and simply ask that you replace them neatly on the shelves after class. If you prefer, we offer props for sale or you may bring your own personal props to class.
Each class ends with Savasana and we definitely encourage you to stay until class is dismissed. If you need to leave early, please tell the instructor before class and be as quiet as possible when leaving.
