Basic Class Etiquette

Yoga in the Park Basic Class Etiquette

As the classes have grown and we get new people out for our classes, I feel it necessary to remind people of my expectations for our class. We have the luxury of being outside so we have more latitude than most studios, however there are some things that just make the time we have together better for all of us, to that end I hope you will all take these requests into consideration when you attend Yoga in the Park.

1. Try to be on time, we start at 8am sharp, if you have to arrive late, still come, just come in quietly and take up a spot.

2. Cell phone are never appreciated, if you bring one make sure it is off!

3. Please don’t bring you dog or pet to class, they are a distraction to all of us.

4. If you need to leave early, please leave before we start shavasana, never get up and leave after we have started shavasana, this is a quite period and we don’t want people walking, picking up their belongings, talking, etc. If you have stayed this long stay till the end, this is a basic courtesy to me the instructor.

Please do bring your friends, it is also very nice to see people early and if you want some special guidance this is the time to ask for individual help. I am usually able to talk with you after class as well. I hope our class continues to grow; it is always a real pleasure to see new faces.

Thanks for your understanding of my basic class rules.
