Prep & Class Rules
What to bring ~
- Please bring your mat and a warm hoodie, sweatshirt, or small blanket. You will need the blanket for sivassana (deep relaxation).
- Bring water.
- Be respectful and please turn off cell phones.
- Shoes off at the door.
- No socks.
Please make note of the start time for each class. We try to start on time. If you happen to be running late, please drive safely, and it is appreciated that you set your mat up quietly (removing shoes and turning off phones).
IF YOU ARE ARRIVING LATE...
IF you are LATE for class and we are in the middle of "tuning-in" please wait to enter the room AFTER the class has tuned in... you can tune-in on your own before entering and before beginning the asanas (postures). “Tuning-In” is mentally chanting the words “Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo” three times to center and focus yourself.
When you enter the class, you can GENTLY ease yourself into the posture that the class is in.
If your body feels that you must do a couple stretches before joining the rest of the class, please do so.
IF YOU ARE LEAVING EARLY...
If you know you will have to leave class early, please find a spot towards the back or side of the class to lessen the distraction for the whole class. Be mindful to leave BEFORE deep relaxation or at the end of it as excessive packing sounds can be very disruptive for the class.
Sat Nam! See you on the mat!
