What to Bring to Class
Bring your (showered/clean) body and an empty tummy; wear your bare feet or socks. Tee shirts, biking shorts, and tights/leggings, sweatshirt/pants are great. Avoid wearing baggy shorts, as you may feel exposed in certain poses. Leave your gum, perfume, and worries outside the studio. There are 2 rest rooms and all the yoga props you'll need. KrishnaYoga is a cellphone free zone. Please respect the policy and turn your phone off before coming to class.
Blankets, Candles, Incense
The blankets we use in Svaroopa®style yoga are made with synthetic materials and contain no wool or cotton. If you are sensitive to candles or incense please notify me.
Practicing yoga in a classroom setting is very powerful and can be more effective than home practice for most of us. For maximum benefit to all, group practice also requires that each participant take responsibility for being aware of how he/she affects other students in the room.
Here are some suggestions we have that over the years have proven (when observed) to make the classroom a welcoming and supportive environment in which to practice:
~ Do not wear perfumed body products or scented oils (some students are allergic)
~ Practice on an empty stomach (or a light meal, one that you can digest easily)
~ Shower before class and wear clean clothing if you have been perspiring and/or, if you smoke. Sometimes smokers do not realize that their body/hair/clothing has become saturated w/ the odor of smoke. These things can disturb other students. Also, our blankets can absorb perfume, sweat, and smoke odors and must be washed before use again if a student in the above condition uses them.
Classes Start on Time!
Please arrive for your class on time. This means 10-15 minutes prior to the start time.
Thank you for your consideration of these courtesies and I look forward to having you in class!
