Ettiquette

When you arrive at our studio in Terrigal, we ask that you please be respectful of the space and other students, and consider these yoga etiquettes:

  • Arrive to your class 10-15 minutes before class begins to still the mind and body to prepare for your practice
  • The studio is a shoe free zone. Please leave your shoes at our show rack at the door and make sure your feet are clean before stepping into the studio
  • The focus of yoga is YOU. This is your practice and enjoyment. Yoga is not a competition or sport
  • Ashtanga and Vinyasa practitioners, please bring a small towel. It can get quite sweaty once you start moving!
  • Leave some space between your last meal and your yoga class so your body can properly digest
  • Respect the space and your fellow students by turning your mobile to silent or off
  • Practice non-violence (ahimsa in Sanskrit) at the studio by being gentle in voice, movement, actions, thought, and attitude. Leave gossip and negative attitudes at the door with your shoes
  • Advise your teacher of any health concerns which may affect your yoga practice
  • Inform your teacher if you do not wish to be adjusted in class
  • If you are unwell, please respect the other students in the class and do not attend until you are feeling better
  • If you need to leave class early for any reason, please advice your teacher
  • If you have any pre-existing health concerns, we advise you first enquire with your own GP before attending class
  • Our teachers will always offer variations/modifications and encourage you to listen to and respect your own strengths and limitations
  • Leave your mat and blanket as you found it and return any additional props you may have used to their basket, ready for the next student to enjoy their practice
You’ve shown up to the mat which is the first step! These simple etiquettes will help you make the most of your practice.
