We ask you to keep the following points of etiquette in mind as we work to build a more peaceful, organized space for practice. 

  • Sign up on MindBody before class for easy check-in.
  • Arrive 10-15 minutes early.  Vinyasa late-comers: sit quietly near the door until the teacher is done giving their opening. 
  • Silence your cell phone (including vibrate) while in the practice room. 
  • Respect the meditative silence of practice. If you have to communicate verbally while inside or outside the room, please do so at a low volume.
  • Inform the teacher if you: 
    • would prefer not to be physically adjusted.
    • are injured, pregnant, or working with specific conditions.
    • are sick—but please stay home if you have any cold or flu symptoms.
    • have to leave class early. Leave before savasana/meditation so other students may rest/meditate in quiet.
  • Move calmly and carefully when entering and exiting the room.
  • Tidy up props, tissues, water bottles, clothing, towels, etc., and wipe up sweat around your mat. 
  • Return mat to its designated place (hang up if sweaty, fold up and return to shelf/stack if dry) and put used towels in the laundry bin.
  • Wash your own mat regularly.
