New to SAVY Studio?
Experiencing a yoga class for the first time or the hundredth time should be enjoyable, stress-free and should include considerate behavior to all other students in the class and teacher. For everyone’s convenience, please observe the following:
- Please arrive in time. By arriving late, you miss the initial centering and warming up part of the class and it can disturb others.
- Please turn off mobile phone and pager. Or better still, leave anything that makes noise in your vehicle. It is distracting to hear the beep, ring or vibration of a cell phone in the middle of yoga class.
- Please remove shoes before coming in. Since we walk around barefoot, it is most hygienic if everyone takes off their shoes first thing.
- If you must leave class early, please do so without disturbing or talking.
- Avoid perfumes and lotions. Some students might have allergies and sensitivities.
- Speak in hushed tones before and after class. Yoga is a time of inviting stillness, so please respect others by keeping silent as soon as you enter class.
- Wear clothing which allows full range of body movement.
- If need be, use the rest-room prior to class.
- Come in with an open mind and an open heart. It allows us to become present and may help you become more aware, compassionate, healthier or skillful.
- Yoga is non-competitive. Stay within your limits, relax and have fun!
- If you have a question or something hurts, please speak up. Please ask the instructor if you are confused. Most likely, someone else is too!
- Set up your space mindfully. Unroll your mat quietly.
- Avoid eating anything but a light snack within three hours prior to class.
