YOGA CLASS ETIQUETTE29 Nov 2017
Ask anyone why they go to a yoga class and the most common reply will be “to relax”.
With this in mind there are a few dos and don’ts that will help make your yoga session all the more relaxing.
All that is asked is a bit of respect and courtesy for everyone in the class.
- Arrive a few minutes before the start so you can set up your mat and get ready for the session without rushing
- If you are a little late of the session, please get ready quickly and quietly so as to cause the minimum disturbance.
- Switch off your mobile phone, or set it to silent, so that it does not disturb others.
- Put all your belongings, bags, clothes, shoes etc. out of the way where they are not a trip hazard.
- Ask permission to move mats or equipment that are in use by other students.
- Give yourself and the people around you enough space to spread out.
- Keep water bottles closed when not in use to reduce the risk of spills.
- Enjoy your session but do not talk and disturb others, once the session has started.
- Once relaxation begins please do not get up or walk around, even if you intend to leave the room, unless it is urgent.
- If you feel uncomfortable, need to cough, sneeze or have breathing problems, roll onto your side in the recovery position and get comfortable.
- Observe a few moments of peace and quiet at the end of relaxation by staying on your mat until the whole class is seated and the session is brought to an end.
Anyone arriving more than five minutes after the session start will not be admitted.
Cancellations less than 48-hours before the start of a session must be paid in full.
