Before the class it is advisable to have only a light meal, preferably max. 2 hours before the class. Beware of your drinking regime throughout the day. At some yoga classes you might sweat.
COMING TO THE CLASS
It is ideal to come 10 to 15 minutes before the class starts. The studio is always available 15 minutes before and 15 minutes after the class. Early arrival shows respect to your trainer, co-practitioners and to yourself. If you happen to arrive late, please enter the room quietly.
WHAT TO WEAR
For exercise, bring comfortable clothes that allow freedom of movement. It is important to keep in mind that these are group classes and you may sweat at some of them. We are often close to each other, so it is advisable to pay attention to hygiene habits and take a shower before the class, have clean feet and use deodorant. Bring a towel that you will have nearby your mat during exercise. We practice barefoot.
WHAT TO PRACTISE ON
We practice on mats (not on camping mats). For both hygienic and practical reasons, it is ideal to have your own high-quality mat designed for a more dynamic form of yoga (solid, not very thick and non-slippery). If you do not have your mat yet, we rent mats in our studio. We also have all yoga equipment available for sale in the studio. Other aids such as blankets, blocks, bolsters are available for you.
INFORM THE INSTRUCTOR
Talk to your tutor if you have medical or any other limitations. Please inform him before the hour and don’t be afraid to ask for advice. Especially at yoga classes for a healthy back
SILENCE YOUR PHONE & YOURSELF
It is advisable to come to the class in peace and quiet. If you are coming to the class with the vision of achieving peace, find your place in the room and rest on the mat before the lesson begins. Talk to others quietly, with respect to your co-practitioners – some of them will start to dive into themselves before the class begins. Keep your mobile phone at home or off in the locker room. Vibration or ringtones disturb all participants, including you, especially during the final relaxation, which is accompanied by silence.
LISTEN TO YOUR BODY
Yoga is all about getting together, don’t force yourself to do things you don’t feel right now, modify positions with aids, or omit them altogether. Listen to your body and respect it. Some classes require higher physical performance. Be especially considerate to yourself and do not try to imitate the positions of those who have been practicing yoga for longer. All asanas (positions) should be pleasant for you.
