Yoga Etiquette 

Yoga is living life in balance and harmony with your self and your environment. The yoga studio is an intimate and communal environment that functions best when everyone honours each other and the space.

What to wear: 

  • Wear loose fitting clothes taking into regard the room is heated so dress accordingly.

Before Class:

  •  It’s best to practice on an empty stomach. It is recommended that you do not eat at least two hours before a strong yoga practice. If you need to, eat something easily digestible like fruit or yoghurt.

What to bring:

  •  It is recommended that you acquire your own yoga mat, towel and water.

Coming in to the Studio:

  •  No shoes in the yoga studio. In yoga, practitioners put their hands, and sometimes their faces on the floor so we keep the studio a shoe-free zone.

  •  Arrive a few minutes early. Allow yourself ample time to set up your mat. Make ‘being on time’ part of your practice. If you happen to be late; take a few breaths, unroll your mat outside, then enter the studio slowly and quietly.

Mobile free zone:

  •  Please leave mobile phones outside the yoga studio. If you have to bring your phone inside the studio make sure it is OFF - not on silent or vibrate mode.

During class:

  •  If you have to leave a class early, tell your teacher and leave quietly before the closing relaxation.

  •  Be respectful to yourself. Make sure your teacher is aware of any pre-existing condition or injury that might affect your yoga practice. Honour your body and practice within your body’s limitations.

  •  Yoga is not a competitive sport! And it’s not just a ‘workout’. It is a multi-dimensional spiritual practice, which makes the body, mind and spirit stronger, more flexible and generally much healthier. Calm your mind, open your heart and enjoy yourself.

Most importantly:

  •  Be kind to yourself. Take rests. Remember wherever you are; you are perfect.
