GOOD etiquette

Please bring your own mat & towel to practice.   You can rent a mat and/or towel if you need.   Bring water and please arrive 15 minutes before your first class starts so we can check you in and show you around.  We do not allow people to enter class once it has started.

Our classes are designed to work your entire body, building postures and exercises in a sequence. Final Savasana is where all the magic happens! Benefits of your class are maximized by relaxation. Allow yourself time to stay in savasana for a while after class to fully relax and soak up all the amazing mental and physical benefits


It’s your practice, make it your own by skipping a pose or modifying depth, but do your best to stay with the teacher’s instruction. Doing so has a noticeable impact on the energy of the class.

Do more things that make you unplug. We believe that the yoga room is a sacred space to relax and unwind. You’re here to disconnect from the outside world and focus on going inward. *Please silence your SmartWatch too. Even better, take it off and truly disconnect. This time is for YOU!

Add electrolytes to prepare your body for the demands of hot class and sweating. We do have coconut water and electrolyte replenishers for purchase.

We recommend not eating 2-3 hours before you take class to avoid nausea and to allow the body to fully digest. You’ll find what works best for you.

Many people are allergic and sensitive to strong perfumes and lotions, so please rinse off if you are wearing scented lotions or perfumes before class, and refrain from applying them in the studio after class.

Wear clothes that you feel comfortable sweating in and that allow for a wide range of movement.   The room is heated to 105 degrees in hot classes and it will feel hot.

The heat helps to limber up your muscles, allowing for deeper stretching. It also helps detoxify the body, thin the blood to improve circulation, increase heart rate for a better cardiovascular workout, improve strength by putting muscle tissue in optimal state for reorganization of lipids in the muscular structure.

Remember: you’re literally changing the construction of your body. It’s much like forging a samurai sword. It all starts with a piece of cold, rigid steel. When heated, the steel softens and becomes malleable, so it can be hammered into the proper shape. That’s what you’re doing in class with both your mind and body!
