Arrive a little early, class starts right on time out of respect for instructors and students. Doors will open 15 minutes prior to class and lock at the start of class. Complete new student forms, ask questions, say hello, and settle in. Take off your shoes, silence your phone, and leave them both along with your worries, at the door. In addition to mats, there are blocks, bolsters, straps and other props available that you are welcomed to use. Please introduce yourself to your neighbor, we are all a part of this community.
Open your mind. Yoga teachers can say some odd things that you may not have heard before, try to listen without judgement and be open to new perspectives and ideas.
Take care of your body. Listen to it, not your ego; the poses are just shapes and they will come in time. Remember, as long as you are breathing you are practicing yoga. Take child's pose, a water break, or step out of the room at any time. The instructor is just your guide, it is YOUR practice.
Take all the time you need to enjoy moments of silence before you speak or move; there is no hurry to leave. Please use the available mat spray on studio mats, and feel free to use it on your own as well. All questions and feedback are appreciated.
