The front reception area is meant for social interaction, but we ask the yoga room remain a place a quiet and stillness. The yoga room is a sacred space created for focus and meditation. Please be respectful of others. When you first come into the room, we invite you to sit or lie down on your yoga mat, while waiting for the teacher. The yoga room is a refuge away from conversation and noise and is meant to provide the student a peaceful environment to get centered.
We recommend you arrive 10 – 15 minutes before the start of your class. This will give you time to sign in at the reception desk, change if necessary, and have a few moments of silence in the yoga room to centre yourself and prepare for your practice. You can bring your bags into the room with you and place them in a cubby at the back of the yoga room. Coats can be hung up in reception.
It is disruptive to your fellow students to enter after the start of a class, so please leave yourself enough time to be on time.
A yoga class is like a sacred space; People coming in and out of the room disrupts the energy. For that reason, try to stay in the room for the duration of class. Rest in child’s pose or savasana if you need to take a break, but try to refrain from leaving the room. This will allow everyone to stay focused and present.
Come hydrated, rested and on an empty stomach. You can bring your own water bottle, or purchase water at reception.
Wear comfortable clothing. This might include shorts, t-shirts, leggings, yoga wear, tank tops, etc. Men usually wear shorts, t-shirts, or comfortable athletic pants that are easy to move in.
Bring your own mat and a towel if you like. You may also rent a mat at reception. We also sell yoga mats at the reception area.
Please refrain from bringing your cell phone into class.
We ask that you remove your shoes when you enter and leave them in the front reception area.
Please refrain from wearing perfume or scented lotions or oils as some of your fellow yogis may be sensitive to these smells.
If you have any questions, please see the teacher or reception before or after class.
