Touch-free temperature checks will also be requested of students upon arrival. 

Studio Space: 

Upon check in, students will receive a number that corresponds to a space in the studio. This way students will enter and sit in numerical order, limiting contact within the studio space.

Studio Etiquette

BE ON TIME

Students are requested to be in class, on their mats, and prepared to practice 5-minutes before start time. This will help ensure that classes start on time and make it such that you are relaxed and ready. Please respect your fellow students and instructors in all classes by being on time. Traditionally, instructors do not permit latecomers as it disrupts the flow of the class and practice of other students who make effort to be on time.

BEST  HYGIENE  PRACTICES

Saucha, or Cleanliness is one of the main yoga values we embrace.  For the sake of everyone around you, bathe before coming to class, wear deodorant and clean your mat – often. Please clean it thoroughly after class with the towel and the Mat Cleaner provided in class. Yoga is a Prayer. Personal hygiene is an integral part of practicing yoga. Further, avoid heavy fragrances.

SHHHHH!

You must respect silence within the practice room. The practice space is used to center oneself, meditate, and escape the chaos of daily life. Use the time, to prepare for your class by doing some stretches, meditation or take a resting pose until class is about to start.

Leave everything behind

Please remove your jacket, shoes and socks at the entrance. Yoga is practiced in bare feet. Some people are allergic to the dust. Please leave any jewellery/valuable at home.
