What are the things I need to know before attending a class?

            If you are new to yoga there are some things you would want to know. Most of us have good intention most of the time and its easy to get distracted especially if you have never done yoga before.

Yoga Etiquette:

If you are new to yoga there are some things you would want to know. Most of us have good intention most of the time and its easy to get distracted especially if you have never done yoga before.

  • Be Punctual – Be not only on time to your yoga class, be early. Make it a habit to arrive early. Nothing disrupts a local class mood like the late comer! When it comes to being on time, you are either on time or you aren’t. Everything else is an excuse. 
  • Personal Hygiene – Remember yoga class is often a very intimate setting and you may practice yoga closer to your fellow yogi/yogini than you prefer due to lack of space or a crowded room. Please mind your personal hygiene. Use Deodorant. Use toothpaste or mouthwash. Brush your hair. Wear clean clothes. Bring a clean mat and clean towel in. These are the minimum requirements of appearing in public in general. Good personal hygiene shows respect to our own self and body first and foremost so it should never be compromised but especially not when others may be subject to your poor hygiene.
  • Quietness – The few minutes before class are ideal for a short meditation and for setting an intention so refraining from chit-chat is not just good etiquette but also beneficial for your state of mind. When you enter, settle down quietly.
  • Turn Off Electronics – Exit the world of constant communication which we all love and step into your mat fully liberated. Remember that others have done the same and interrupting the yoga zone with a ringtone (any ringtone!) is rather unforgiving, regardless of the calm reaction you may receive.
  • Decent Yoga Clothing – clothes that are no overly revealing and may cause distractions in class.
  • No Shoes – No shoes inside the studio practice area. Keeping the floors clean (at least from shoe goo if not from sweat!) is important to everyone including yourself.  There are designated shoe racks to store the shoes during practice. 
  • Respect the Teacher – Respecting your yoga teacher comes in many forms. The easiest one is following the poses or a modified version of them. Do not do your own series in the middle of a guided class if you are bored or uninterested in the current pose. Finish the class and choose another teacher but during the class, respect the teacher enough to follow instructions and do so with an open mind.
  • Silence during Savasana – Have dedication to the finish of practice. Practice silence during savasana and however tempted you may be to leave and skip out, resist it. This is where your practice assimilates and the results are infused with a repose so well-deserving and so necessary. This last pose seals your practice with good omen and prepares you for the next phase. If you must (really must!) leave before the end, leave before people settle into Savasana and be as quiet as a church mouse!
  • Thank the Teacher – Make sure to thank your teacher before you leave. Always go even out of your way, find him or her, tap them on the shoulder, interrupt a conversation just to say thank you! Even when you know you are never returning to this instructor or the studio, take the time to thank them. Save other feedback for later if you must. Let the thank you be the last thing you do before you leave class.
  • Clean-Up Immediate Area – If you borrowed a mat from the studio, wipe it down. You may or may not need to put it away depending on their policy. If you created a puddle of sweat, wipe it with your towel. If you used props, put them back. Take all your stuff with you. It takes all of 57 seconds at most but it shows you respect others who will come to use the space and that you have good manners and can be trusted! Practicing cleanliness in public will always leave the best impression about you with others. What a thing to savor at the end of a yoga class!
  • Sign In and Pay – Yoga is not generally free. Remember your payment arrangement without a reminder from the teacher. 
  • Early Departure in the Midst of Class – What if you suddenly discover that you are in a class way beyond your ability? How do you leave? Should I just gather up my props and blankets as quietly as possible and exit? It’s OK to gather your things and leave, if you can do it quietly.
