Studio Etiquette

Lobby Etiquette

The lobby area is a shared space between students, staff, and teachers. It is a place of connection, conversation, bonding, and relationship building. Although we love to see everyone connecting before and after class, please be mindful that the studio is a sacred space, and these guidelines are to help promote a safe, warm, healing environment for all who enters.

  • Let the front desk staff know you’re present, even if you checked in online
  • Watch your volume: There may be classes in session or students in savasana. If you feel your conversations are getting lively, please step outside of the building
  • The studio is a sacred space is for students, teachers, and staff, all other individuals will be respectfully asked to leave
  • Place personal items neatly in the cubbies
  • Tobacco use of any kind, smoking vape pens, ingesting drugs, and drinking alcohol are prohibited in the studio
  • Only staff allowed behind the desk and in the office
  • Silence electronics. Our walls are not sound-proof. We can still hear them inside the practice room
  • Be kind and respectful to your yoga neighbors and the teacher before, during, and after class

Practice Room Etiquette

  • Arrive on time or early for class
  • Teachers will start class and end class on time
  • No shoes
  • No cellphones, silence smartwatches. If there is an unusual circumstance, please inform your teacher
  • No open beverages
  • Practice quiet voices, ideally silence
  • It is the responsibility of the student to notify teachers of any previous injury, illness, or conditions that may impact their practice
  • Avoid perfumes
  • Respect the teacher’s sequencing: You may find certain times in a group class that you need to do things a little differently such as modify a pose or take a longer rest. In these situations, please take care of your body by modifying the practice to accommodate your needs. At the same time honor other students in the room and their practice by staying with the general flow and pace of the group.
  • If you have to leave early, tell your teacher, and leave before savasana
  • Clean up after yourself
