We are all "beginners" when it comes to Yoga. We don't have to have any experience or flexibility to start practicing. What we need is an open mind and a smile on our face:)
For a harmonious atmosphere in the space we share, please consider this Yoga etiquette:
- Arrive on time. Allowing ourselves to settle and transform from the outside world to our inner world. (Are you running late? Arriving last minute? Please don't set up your mat in the front row in front of everyone. Just sneak in.)
- The Yoga room is a silent place. You are welcome to catch up with friends in the lobby.
- We start (and finish) every class on time. The only thing you cannot return to a person is the time of their precious life spent waiting for you.
- Bring what you need for practice: a Yoga mat. We leave our judgement, expectations, shoes, cellphones and bags outside of the room please.
- Please stay calm and quiet in the teaching room. We all treasure silence in our busy day.
- We are a scent free environment. Let your inner beauty radiate, not your perfume, hairspray
- For the same reason, if you do chose to smoke cigarette (or anything else) please refrain from smoking 2 hours prior to your class.
- We recently received some complaints about strong body odour as well. If ever in doubt, feel free to use our shower facilities before your practice. Thank you.
- Try to stay in the room throughout the class. If you do need to leave however, please do so as quietly and gently as you possibly can. Noticing and respecting other people's space, mats and other belongings.
- We finish every class with 5-10 minutes Savasana, lying down, relaxing.
- Stay calm as long as you can. Enjoy your blissful "yoga-high". Take it with you off your mat, into your life.
- Please let your teacher leave the room first. It is the sign of respect.
Cleaning your mat ( or the studio mat you just used):
Please hang the mat on the bar attached to the wall, designated for this.
Spray them hanging, on both sides. (no spraying in the teaching space, while others are in Savasana, or onto the floor please.)
THANK YOU VERY MUCH
(The gesture “Namaste” represents the belief that there is a Divine spark within each of us that is located in the heart chakra. This gesture is an acknowledgment of the soul in one by the soul in another. Nama means bow, as means I, and te means you. Therefore, namaste literally means "bow me you" or "I bow to you.")
