Springtime in Yoga Class

As the weather starts to warm up, so do our bodies, which means a lovely extra cleansing sweat when we practice yoga! Sweat on a clean body is not stinky but if someone hasn't showered that day, one person's smell can bring the whole classroom to a state of repulsion instead of bliss, especially since we should be breathing through our noses and not our mouths! Also, if you do not wash your clothes properly, the smell of mildew can be enough to knock your teacher and friends out! So for the sake of your teacher and fellow students, please read and follow these rules of etiquette. Luckily we have showers here on site, so it's easy and quick to grab a towel from the front desk and take a quick shower before class!

Yoga Etiquette

1. NO SHOES in the yoga room.
2. Please bathe the DAY OF class including washing your feet with soap.
3. Please make sure to wash and dry yoga clothes in between uses.
4. Please make sure to clean yoga mats after use if you are using our mats. We have a large spray bottle of mat cleaner in the yoga room and small red towels outside the room. Clean your mat with the towel and spray, then put the towel in the wooden hamper outside the room.
5. Practice with care and consideration for yourself and others.
6. Never hesitate to ask the teacher for help.
7. It's best not to eat anything for a couple of hours prior to class.
8. Turn off cell phones.

10. Beginning Mysore class students should arrive at the start time of class and plan on staying an hour or so.
11. Please be willing to make space for others in a crowded room by moving your mat.
12. If you do not wish to be touched by the teacher, please tell them before class.
