Studio Etiquette

  • Class starts on time, our doors open 30 minutes before class and we recommend getting there early, late comers will not be admitted, no exceptions!
  • Finish telephone conversations and turn off your mobile phone before entering reception
  • Leave shoes on shoe shelves provided
  • Please keep body and feet clean when attending class. If necessary, feel free to shower before class. As a courtesy to fellow students, please avoid perfumes and colognes
  • A kind note to smokers: Please brush your teeth and change your clothing before class as all odours are enhanced in the heated room
  • All classes are 90 minutes, students are expected to stay for the entire duration of the class. It is important to stay until the end of class. Postures towards the end of the series are designed to calm, cool and re-energize you

  • If you have any medical conditions, injuries, recent surgeries or if you are pregnant, please advise the teacher before class starts
  • Please keep your mat lined up with the lines on the floor and when lying down keep your head at the top of the mat, that way you will give each student around you enough space
