New Students

We want you to feel comfortable the minute you walk in the door. There are a few things that can help you prepare for your first yoga class.

What to wear?

Like any class that you might take at the gym, you’ll want to wear comfortable (but not too baggy) workout clothes that you can move in like yoga pants, T-shirts, tank tops, etc. We recommend that you wear layers, since your body may warm up considerably during your yoga practice, and cool down during the relaxation phase of class. While halter tops, leotards and leggings are also appropriate, we ask that you consider modesty when dressing for yoga, in respect for your fellow students.

What to bring?

Some students prefer to have their own mat eventually but if you dont have one you are welcome to use one of ours. You could bring a blanket or fleece for meditation.

What should I do when I arrive?

Please arrive about 5-10 minutes before a class is scheduled to start. This will give you time to sign-in and pay, meet the teacher and get settled in the studio space. It’s also helpful to let your teacher know if you have any injuries or medical concerns, so he or she can help modify postures for you if necessary.
Some students like to take a few minutes before class to transition out of their stressful day by quietly relaxing on their mats.
Arriving late can be very disturbing to your fellow students, since many classes begin with a brief meditation. If you do need to come in after a class has begun, please do so as discretely as possible, and then wait until the end of class to sign-in and pay.

Studio Etiquette?

Please turn off you mobile phone before class. No shoes in the studio – socks or bare feet only. Please be considerate of your fellow students by not holding extraneous conversations during class, and moving quietly if you need to get up to go to the bathroom or leave for any reason.
