Handy Hints – All other Classes & Courses 

Please arrive 10 minutes before class starts to allow enough time to sign in  and settle into your space in a relaxed way.

Mats and props are supplied but feel free to bring your own mat if you wish.

Wear comfortable, non-restrictive clothing in breathable or quick-dry fabrics and something to cover up with at the end of the class.

Remove shoes as you enter and store bags and personal belongings well out of the way of our practice space (in Nicholls, place your shoes outside the studio door, and other belongings in the storage unit next to the registration desk.

Store bags & other personal belongings in the storage unit next to the registration desk.

Yoga is practiced barefoot (or you can wear non-slip socks).

Switch off or mute mobile phones during class.

Please refrain from wearing strong perfumes & fragrances.

Practice on an empty stomach, ideally 2-3 hours after your last meal.

Stay hydrated. Hydrate well before and after class. Drink water or electrolytes to keep muscles supple and assist with the elimination of toxins.

Keep the teacher well informed about any injuries, health conditions or concerns which may affect your practice, including pregnancy. Let us know before class, not after, and keep reminding us! Keep in mind that yoga practice should always be done under supervision of a health physician if there are health-related circumstances.

Keep practicing! Expect to be sore. The more you practice, the better you will feel.  A regular yoga practice is recommended to receive the full benefits.

Keep a growth (as opposed to fixed) mindset about your practice. Respect your body’s limitations: rest/modify when needed, yet be open to exploring your amazing possibilities!

If you need to leave early, try to spend at least 2-3 minutes in Savasana (corpse/relaxation pose) first, regardless what the rest of the class is doing.

Most of all…Have FUN and don’t be afraid to ask questions or provide feedback!
