Class Etiquette and General Guidelines

The  word "Namaste" literally means: the divine in me bows to the divine in you. Every moment we are together we have the opportunity to respect and appreciate one another. Here are some wise and gracious yogi and yogini etiquette guidelines:

Class Etiquette

  • Please arrive at least 10 minutes before class begins.
  • If you are a new student allow yourself a few extra minutes prior to class to sign in, fill out the New Student form ,inform your teacher of any injuries or conditions and get acquainted with the studio.Turn off all cell phones and NO cell phones allowed in the studio
  • Keep all personal items outside the yoga studio
  • Remove shoes before entering the practice space
  • Roll mats out quietly.
  • When you're waiting outside, please be quiet as there may be a class in progress.If you are late for unavoidable reasons, please join the class quietly.
  • In order to avoid injury, if you arrive later than 15 minutes after the start of class, you will not be able to attend.
  • If you are required to leave early, please do so before savasana (final relaxation)  as it is disruptive to others to leave during this time.
  • Please observe basic hygiene when attending yoga class.
  • Refrain from perfumes and oils as many people are allergic.
  • Consider bringing your own yoga mat; it is more hygienic.
  • Reduce skin-to-skin contact with our props by wearing a shirt. This also makes it easier for teachers to make adjustments
  • If you tend to sweat, bring a towel to class.
General Class Preparation
  • Enter with an open mind and a peaceful heart.

  • DON’T eat a heavy meal for one or two hours before class. If you practice yoga on a full stomach, you might experience cramps, nausea, or vomiting, especially inAerial Yoga twists, deep forward bends, and inversions. Digesting food also takes energy that can make you lethargic.

  • Please refrain from chewing gum during class.

  • Wear comfortable suitable exercise clothing that permits freedom of movement.

  • It is your responsibility to inform the instructor if you are pregnant or have any injuries before class.

  • Please support YogaFuzion's intention of creating a non-competitive and peaceful environment. Try your best to focus on your own body and your own practice. Comparison is the thief of joy; don’t measure yourself by another person’s abilities.

  • Consistent yoga practice is necessary to obtain maximum benefit.

  • Remember to rest when necessary, to work at your individual level and to respect your body’s current physical state.
