Just like any home, we have house rules, which we call studio etiquette to ensure everyone gets the most out of their experience. 
Here is what you need to know:

    • Please arrive 10 minutes before class.

    • All students must sign in at the front desk before setting up your mat
      in the studio.

    • Please remove shoes before entering the yoga room, if placing your belongings in the back dressing room please carry your shoes through the studio.

    • Please silence all cell phones when you enter the studio floor.

    • Relish the quiet, a yoga classroom is like a sanctuary- people come here to
      relax and find peace. Honor this by observing as much quiet as possible.

    • Keep all personal items outside the yoga room, cubicles are provided before entering the studio or in the back dressing area. All valuables should be left at home, or locked in your car. Sundara Yoga is not responsible for lost or
      stolen items.

  • Please stay through Savasana at the end of class. It is one of the most important elements of your practice. If you must leave do so silently before Savasana begins.

  • If you arrive late, do not enter the studio until centering is completed.

  • Please do not wear scented perfume, oils, or lotion in the yoga studio.

  • Please leave your space the way you found it; wipe up your sweat (it gets slippery) and put away your props.

  • No gum or glass in the studio. All containers must be sealed or have a lid.

  • Please practice Sauca (proper hygiene): a clean yogi is a happy yogi.

  • Be mindful of where you park – please respect our neighbors.

  • 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.

  • DON’T push it. Instead of trying to go as deeply or completely into a pose, as others might be able to, do what you can without straining or injuring yourself .You’ll go farther faster if you take a loving attitude toward yourself and work from where you are, not from where you think you should be.

   
   

NEW YOGIS

 

  • Please arrive 15 minutes before class to complete new student paperwork and to receive a proper welcoming to our community.

  • Don’t eat for two or three hours before class. If you practice yoga on a full stomach, you may experience cramps or nausea. Digesting food also takes energy that can make you feel more lethargic.

  • Do let your teacher know about injuries or conditions that may affect your practice.

  • Athletic clothing is recommended – you will sweat!

  • Bring water, a yoga mat, and a towel. These items are available if you forget.

  • Enter with an open mind and a peaceful heart.

  • Know that, it takes at least three yoga classes to find a certain ease of movement.  No two classes or teachers are the same.

  • Flexibility is not required.
