Session Guidelines
Changing rooms and bathrooms are available inside the studio, remove your footwear upon arrival and please turn off your cellphones when you enter our building.
Consult a physician before starting or returning from any illness or surgery, and refrain from wearing any perfumes or strong scents.
Regular attendees should arrive no earlier than 15 minutes and no later than 5 minutes before class.
Please be sure to notify your instructor if you are a beginner, or if you have any medical conditions to be considered, and fill out a consent form.

For yoga classes: 
Wear loose, comfortable clothing (yoga-specific clothes are certainly not required).
Running or cycling shorts and a tee-shirt are a great start.
For men, a pair of compression shorts can be worn as a base layer, if desired (but are certainly not required). 
Dress in layers (sweatshirts, long sleeves, sweatpants, or similar) during winter months.
Yoga mats, straps, blocks and blankets are all available for complementary use in the studio, however regular students are encouraged to bring their own. Hydrate well before class, bring your own water bottle or hydrate with our spring water if necessary.
Be prepared to remove shoes and socks after entering the studio.
Refrain from using fragrances or colognes prior to class.
Classes are 60, 75 or 90 minutes in duration.
The use of a personal water bottle, with a securely locking top, is strongly encouraged. 
Students should inform their instructor of any on-going, or potential, health-related issues they are dealing with.
During Class
  • Newer students please set up your mats in the middle or in back of your experienced classmates.
  • Do your best with each asana and posture.
  • Yoga works best for you if you find the appropriate balance of effort and ease in the pose as you breath and relax into it. This will also prevent you from injury from pushing yourself too far.
  • Please plan to enter quietly, stay for the duration of the class and refrain from chewing gum.
Developing Your Ongoing Practice
  • Our goal is to reach all people and to raise independent yoginis/yogis and fitness students.
  • Start slow and practice when you are able with a clear intention for yourself and others. We recommend 3 times a week to start, then working towards 5-6 days a week.
  • The more you practice, the better you should feel, the more you will want to practice!:)
  • Yoga has many benefits: flexibility, strengthening, weight management, potential healing physiologically, physically, mentally, intellectually, spiritually and energetically. Yoga therapy is used for recovery and/or trauma situations.

For massage therapy sessions:
Wear loose, comfortable clothing.
You will have the option of completely disrobing (while remaining conservatively draped) during your visit.
Please feel free to write down any questions you might have prior to your visit.
A comprehensive review of all relevant medical/injury issues will be conducted as part of each initial consultation. 
Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the start of your first therapy session.
