Plan your travel time to arrive and be set up about 10-15 minutes before class. This is a beautiful opportunity for us to prepare effectively so we can reacquaint with our mats and meditative states by relieving our minds.
NO CELL ZONE: cell phones are in your car or in your locker- turn them OFF - our studio is a sanctuary.
New students arrive 30 min BEFORE class starts.
Please be ON TIME. Occasional exceptions will allow late arrivals but for the most part, timeliness is expected. New students will NOT be let in after class begins--this is too stressful for the instructor and disrupts the class.
One Life Yoga is not responsible for any lost, stolen, or misplaced items. Take care of your stuff before class so you can peacefully and completely take care of yourself in the class and after.
Stay in the room till the end of the practice. We work collectively in the class to create a safe space and container. Bathroom use before class and mindful pacing during the class will help support this practice.
HYDRATE; drink plenty of water before class and after. Hydration really occurs OUTSIDE of the class. During class, your teacher will guide you to the optimum times to take safe and comfortable hydration, so you are not over-expending energy, distracting yourself, or making yourself nauseous during postures.
Avoid eating 2-3 hours before class--eat fresh and nourishing afterwards.
Notify the instructor BEFORE CLASS of any injuries, medical conditions, pregnancy or other limitations. Let us know and we will give you suitable modifications.
Please be sure to remove your shoes before entering the hot room.
Please refrain from wearing perfume, cologne or anything scented.
Bring lightweight clothes and yoga apparel to dress in.. Refrain from lotions and creams before and during practice. The skin is the largest organ in the body and relies on clear and open pores to do its job best!
Be considerate of the sacredness of the space. Pick up after yourself and wipe down the studio mats and equipment that you use. Leave the space in better shape than you found it.
We maintain TOTAL silence in the hot room and QUIET voices in the studio.
