General Guidelines

***All new students must arrive 15 minutes before class and are required to sign a release waiver before class***

It is recommended that you arrive at the studio 15 minutes before the class start time, and at least 5 minutes before any booked class, workshop, and event in order to sign in and settle in to the studio. Please wear comfortable, breathable, exercise clothing that is not too loose. No phones please during the class. Please be considerate of other students, do not wear heavy cologne or perfume, and mind your noise levels. No glass water bottles are allowed in the studio to prevent accidents.

When the class begins, the entrance will be locked for security and safety purposes. The studio offers premium grade Manduka branded yoga mats and props. However, you are welcome to use your own yoga mat instead. Once a class, workshop, or event is full, reservations will be closed, and any interested students may add their name to the waitlist.

We do not encourage students to leave class early. We understand you may encounter unexpected issues or have personal reasons. If you do need to leave early for any reason, please exit the studio quietly so as not to disrupt other students.
