Studio Observances

 

Studio Observances

Plan to arrive early. Arriving at least 10 minutes early helps you settle in, set up your space and prepare for the class.

It is best to avoid eating right before class. If you practice yoga on a full stomach, you might experience discomforts.  We recommend not eating or eating very light for 1-2 hours before class.

Tell your teacher about injuries or conditions that might affect your practice including menstruation and pregnancy. Our teachers are very knowledgeable and will help you with modified and specific poses for your situation.

Please turn off pagers or cell phones before coming into class (the one exception to this is medical professionals who are on call).

Please keep voices very quiet in the Yoga Studio so as not to disturb others who may be preparing for practice by meditating or practicing poses.

Always pick up and neatly put away all props you use.  Maintaining a clean, well-ordered studio is a communal effort and promotes peace of mind for all!

If you must leave class early, please make arrangements to leave before Savasana (Corpse pose), the final pose of class. Leaving during this pose can be disruptive to your fellow students who are resting in silence.  Please inform the teacher before class if you plan to leave early.

Please refrain from wearing any scented perfumes.  Just like the natural odors of your body, these odors can be intensified when your body is heated during practice.  Please be courteous to students who may be sensitive to these types of chemicals.  

As classes fill, please accommodate your fellow students by making space for them.  People are often shy about asking.  If you find yourself walking about in class, please do not step on other people's mats.

Please be mindful of your belongings as you are leaving the studio.  Please label your items like mats and water bottles for easy identification.  We will donate all items left at the studio to local charity organizations at the end of each month.  Please contact staff@yogasource-santafe.com if you believe we may have your lost item.

Enjoy!
