    Please help us reduce your risk of injury and create a refreshing experience for all participants by following these guidelines:

    • 5-Minute Rule: Participants may enter a class up to 5-minutes after the scheduled start. Entrance is prohibited after 5-minutes have passed to ensure that all participants arrive early enough to become sufficiently warmed up for the vigorous parts of each class.
    • Please inform the instructor if you have any special considerations (e.g., pregnancy, injury, illness, recent surgery) which may influence your ability to take a class. Also, this will allow the instructor to provide options for success when necessary.
    • The use of personal music devices, cell phones and PDA’s, are not permitted during class. If a call or text or must be attended to, quietly leave the studio and return upon finishing.
    • Athletic attire must be worn during class.
    • If you need to leave class early, please inform the instructor.

    Remove Your Shoes Upon entering the studio, leave your shoes or sandals near the door.
    Silence Your Cell Phone Make a habit of silencing your cell phone before you enter the studio. If your phone does ring in class, quietly get up and turn it off immediately.
    Arrive On Time Arrive at least 5-10 minutes before the class is scheduled to start to set up your mat, yoga block and other equipment that may be needed for class. Arriving early and settling in will aid in the overall Mind&Body connection to begin the class. For your safety, participants will not be permitted in class 10-minutes after the scheduled start of class. This is for you safety and the effectiveness of the class.
    Work at Your Own Level Keep in mind the classes have varied levels of participant skills and knowledge. The teacher will offer options for success in executing every move safely and properly. Working at your own level is always priority in attaining the most out of your mind&body practice.
    Go to the Bathroom During Resting Poses It is fine to leave class for a few minutes to go to the bathroom, but the best time to go is when there is a period of rest, either in Child's Pose or Downward Dog.
    Take time to Relax in Savasana! After all of your hard work, you deserve a final few minutes to reflect on your accomplishments, renew your mind and leave refreshed and ready to take on the remainder of the day. Your final relaxation in Savasana is an important part of your practice. To respect others during the Savasana refrain from leaving class early.
