We practice yoga for ourselves, but always with the highest respect for our fellow students and the teachers who guide us through the practice.
We have created these guidelines to help make Hot Yoga Studio a welcoming and peaceful space for all students, teachers, volunteers and other visitors. If you have any questions or feedback please message us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rushing into the studio at the last moment or after a class has already begun is stressful and distracting for both you and your fellow yogis. Give yourself a few extra minutes to acclimatise to the heat and prepare for class by arriving ten minutes before the class begins.
Being present in your practice includes leaving your cell phone and bag either in the changerooms or the lockers next to the entrance.
The changing room and reception area are locked during classes.
Take off your shoes at the entrance, so we can keep the studio clean.
Let the teacher know if you have injuries or health issues. This way they know to look out for you during class and can suggest variations of flows and poses.
Perfumes can trigger allergies for other students. Yoga also sharpens the senses, meaning that scents can be very distracting during practice.
Wipe up any sweat from the floor and put props back in their proper place after class. We have disinfecting sprays and small towels by the door, so you can clean your area and your mat.
Move calmly and quietly when you enter and leave the yoga room. Other students may have already begun their practise or might be staying in savasana.
Be careful and gentle towards others and yourself. Recognize that each day is different and brings new challenges.
