We love having all of you come to classes, share in the experience and co-create the atmosphere for the studio! Sometimes, classes get disrupted needlessly so we thought we would put out a little etiquette note.
We advise students in the booking email to come along 15 minutes before the class starts. Not only does this allow for any travel delays, but it gets you in the building and in a good head space for the start of class. We need this time to get updates from you about injuries, answer questions and get all props allocated. If you are coming to the studio for the first time, we have a registration form for you to fill in. So come in plenty of time to fill that out and so we can find out anything we need to know. Also, if you don’t have a Yoga mat, we hire them for £1. This all takes time…
Wear clothes you can move around in comfortably. Jeans aren’t the best choice for Yoga. As a natural part of the flow of a class, you will warm up and cool down near the end, so why not wear an extra layer that you can easily take off and then put back on for Savasana.
If you are late to the studio, we have a receptionist who will let you in quietly in the first 5 minutes of a class (Not at weekends). If you come after this time, we won’t even be able to get the door. The class will be underway, warmed up and will be disrupted too much to join in. You can always call us to let us know you aren’t going to make the class on 01382 669352.
When another class is in progress and you are waiting in the foyer, please keep your voices low as the other class will usually be in the final relaxation part of the class. You know how much you love it, so don’t disturb the others!
It can be good, especially as the weather warms, to have water with you for the class. We have some at reception to purchase before and after the class.
With all of this in mind, it really helps create a calm environment with classes running smoothly and students being free of distraction, disruption and a mindful attitude of respect. We hope you enjoy your time with us!
Plus…no one likes sitting through Finlay’s explanation of “German Time.” “If you are early, you are on time. If you are on time, you are late. If you are late, it is unforgivable.”
