Studio Etiquette


The Spirit of Yoga embraces the qualities of compassion, awareness and respect. In this attitude of awareness, we ask that you …

Arrive 10-15 minutes before class begins to allow yourself time to settle into your Yoga practice. Classes will start at the time scheduled. If you do arrive just as class is beginning, enter quietly and find your spot.

The door will be locked 5 minutes after the start time and you will miss your class.

If you have to leave class early, please inform the teacher so you may leave before final relaxation.

Inform your teacher about any injuries or special health conditions before class. This will help the teacher make suggestions to make your practice a safe and enjoyable practice.

Although we all like a few good laughs, the practice of Yoga is that of an “inward” or quiet practice (mindfulness). Out of respect for your fellow students, we ask that conversation be kept to a minimum during practice. Remember that this hour is for you to unwind, connect with self, breath and leave here feeling amazing! We want to create a space of healing, quiet, relaxation as well as one of friendship.

Please ensure that cell phones are turned off completely or in “airplane mode” or left in your vehicle. If you are on-call or in an emergency situation, please let the teacher know.

All valuables must be brought upstairs into the practice room.

Please refrain from wearing perfumes or fragrances as some people may have allergies.

Our small space is very sensitive to odours created in our own homes, such as smoking, mothballs, cooking onions, fish etc., please be mindful of these odours on clothing and change before class.

If you’re experiencing any signs of a cold or flu, coughing etc., kindly stay home and get to bed! We love you, not your germs.

And most importantly!! Leave all your worries and concerns, coats and boots at the front door. Give yourself this gift of inner peace and tranquility. Be kind to your body/mind. Be mindful of the inner dialogue! Namaste.
