My Yoga Class Schedule.

… and some essential tips, which benefit (Y)our common yoga class experience.

Wear comfortable, form-fitting clothes that you can easily stretch in. Why form-fitting? So that I
can read the alignment and movement of your body in order to adjust during a specific asana (exercise).

Do not eat within 2 hours before class. Juice, fruit or a health bar are okay for some quick
energy, just not too much.

No eating or chewing gum during class. NO cell phones or other mobile devices turned on during class, please!

Water should be consumed before and after class. If you are thirsty during class it is suggested
to just drink enough to wet the mouth.

Arrive a few minutes early.

I encourage beginner yoga students to use props to enhance their practice. Blocks, straps and
blankets. I will supply the blocks and straps, you need to bring your own mat and blanket.
Inform me of any injuries or physical conditions you have in advance.

Leave your shoes outside the studio or at the edge of the room. Yoga is generally practiced
barefoot to maintain traction on the mat and stimulate the nerves in the soles of the feet as well
as to have the freedom to move the toes.

Please refrain from using any scented lotions, gels, etc on the morning or day of class. For each
and every ones sake regarding the air quality in the room for breathing it is necessary to ask this.
Sometimes a student can have an allergy and as the body heats up the lotion on another ‘s body
intensifies and this could trigger someone else ’s breathing problems.

I also suggest you consider what kind of laundry detergent you may be using as the more heavily chemical
ones are easy to tell as they emit a stronger scent.

By the way – What we put on our bodies takes only 15 seconds to seep through our skin into the blood stream.

To properly develop your yoga practice, it is suggested that you attend class at least twice a week
when possible. Consistent practice is the best way to see results, even 5-10 minutes daily on
non class days, will reap progress.

If you feel you are having many questions and/or problems at any time during your practice you
may want to consider a one-hour private class.

If you are going to miss a class, let’s discuss the possibility of a make-up either another time that
week or another week.

My place as your yoga teacher is to help you establish a personal practice which you can do
easily and with safety, anytime or anywhere, all you need is you!
Looking forward to working together in class.
