PHYSICAL OR MEDICAL ISSUES
We all have our particular health concerns or issues, be it an old sports injury or a tender lower back. We cannot stress enough just how important it is to communicate any pre-existing medical problems to your teacher before class. Teachers will tailor the Yoga poses to accommodate your needs. This is particularly true for people recovering from injuries, with chronic muscular-skeletal issues, or those recovering from surgical or medical procedures.
DRESS SHOULD BE COMFORTABLE.
Wear loose-fitting or non-restrictive clothing and avoid accessories that could impede your movement. Classes are barefoot.
PERFUME IS A NO.
Please … help us maintain a fragrance-free environment.
AN EMPTY STOMACH will ensure you are more comfortable in class.
Wait two to three hours after a meal or a half hour after a light snack or drink. Avoid sipping water during class, but drink plenty afterwards.
YOGA MATS can be rented before class or purchased at the studio.
We recommend you have your own.
CHECK-IN at the front desk,
take off your shoes, turn off your cell phone and log in on the sign up sheet.
TALK to the teacher.
If you’re new why not enter the studio a few minutes early and introduce yourself to the teacher? Those having to leave early should tell the teacher before class.
WHY SHOULD I STUDY YOGA:
Yoga has shown tremendous physical benefits for people seeking fitness as well as therapy for chronic ailments and injuries. A mind-body technique that stresses the creation of a quiet, reflective space in the mind, it promotes mental clarity and an overall sense of well-being that can ameliorate anxiety, depression and mind-body disorders. It starts small, with the body, but its benefits can be large. By promoting physical and mental change, yoga can help you transform your life.
