When should I arrive for class?
Please arrive to class 5 – 10 minutes before class start time. Punctuality is important as it supports your practice and honors your body to have a proper warm up. We also want to respect our fellow students by limiting disruption. For this reason, we do not allow students to enter the studio if more than 5 minutes late. Please remove your shoes before entering the studio and place into cubbies. Also leave cell phones in cubbies and set to OFF or on SILENT (not vibrate) mode. Thank you for helping us create a peaceful atmosphere!
Should I eat before yoga class?
Ideally, it is best to practice yoga on an empty stomach, about 2-3 hours after a meal. If this is not possible, eat a light snack, such as piece of fruit or nuts.
What should I wear and bring for my yoga practice?
Wear comfortable clothing you can move in easily. Most workout attire is fitting and you will not need shoes. Also, no perfume please as some are very sensitive to smell. Please bring a yoga mat. If you do not have one, we have rentals available for $2 or Jade Mats available for purchase. We also recommend bringing water to have after class.
Should I practice yoga if I have an injury?
Yoga is about honoring the body and never pushing beyond our limits. Be sure to let the teacher know if you have any chronic injuries or issues that might affect your ability to practice. Our teachers can offer modifications when necessary. Also, women, if you are menstruating or pregnant, please inform your teacher before class. If at anytime you experience pain or something doesn’t feel right, respect your body and gently move out of the pose, remembering a safe practice promotes longevity and advancement on the path of yoga.
