I'm a beginner, can I come to the studio? Yes of course! You are welcome in ANY class.
Why do you ask me to put my mat in a particular place on the floor? So you will always be able to see the teacher; the teacher will always be able to see you; You won't have to pick up your mat and move it during class because someone is in your way, or because someone is arriving late and rolling out their mat right in your line of sight; You won't have to whether you're "too "close" and invading someone else's space; You won't have to ask "Is it ok if I put my mat here?"; You won't end up facing the wrong way; You will be able to check your alignnment throughout the class. In other words, everything will go smoothly for you and your focus will be greatly enhanced.
What should I wear? Please wear stretchy clothes with elastic waist. Clothes that show your outline are ideal.
Why don't you sell bottled water? Because out the in ocean there is a mini-continent of plastic trash.
Can I drink water during class? Of course you can! However you might want to leave that bottle in the back room. For yoga you DO want to get fully hydrated before class but you want to keep your stomach and bladder empty during class. Drinking water can ceate internal pressure and get in the way of the practice. If you are genuinely thirsty during class, you are welcome to go take a drink and come back to your mat.
I'm concerned I might get dehydrated. You definitely SHOULD drink 1 quart of water about an hour before class--or in the case of morning class, drink 1 quart when you wake up. Your body will absorb the hydration.
Our Cell Phone Policy
No phone should ring inside the studio or office. If you must be on call:
- Set the phone to vibrate and keep it next to you
- Set up your mat close to the door.
- If you need to answer, please do so outside the studio
