Yoga studio etiquette; an easy-to-follow list for Hot Yoga
Many of our members know exactly what they’re walking into when coming to Healthletica. As a refresher for regulars and a briefing for newcomers, we created an easy-to-follow list for hot yoga. Take a look and enhance your yoga experience.
- Arrive at least 5 minutes prior to class; give extra time if it is your first time or you need to purchase something (IMPORTANT NOTE: Latecomers will not be allowed to enter the yoga studio since it’s disruptive to the instructor and members)
- Remove your shoes at the front door
- Remember to sign in for the class at reception
- Store all personal belongings (bags, clothing, keys, silenced phones, etc.) in the change room (NO personal belonging are permitted in the yoga studio with the exception of a yoga mat, yoga props and a water bottle)
- Maintain silence once you have entered the practice room
- Lay your mat down quietly in the designated areas (align the top left corner of your mat with the blue L-shape tape on the floor)
- Breathe and listen to your body; you can always lie down in savasana or child’s pose at any time
- Hydrate before and after class
- Ask the instructor questions after class, if you have any
- Many people are scent sensitive, so avoid the use of any perfumes or strong scented creams
- Leave at least 1 hour between consuming food and practicing yoga.
THANK YOU. We want you to sweat, relax and have fun!
What to bring:
- A yoga mat (if you don’t have one, you can rent or purchase one from us)
- A water bottle (we have water & coconut water for sale, if needed)
- A towel (to wipe off your sweat)
- A smile (because yoga at Healthletica is fun!)
Do you slip on your mat during your yoga practice?
We recommend trying one of our yoga mats designed specifically for the hot yoga environment. Slipping on your mat is dangerous and can lead to injury. We want everyone to be safe in their yoga practice. Speak to one of our front desk staff about a hot yoga mat that is right for you.
Please note that we sell and rent yoga mats and towels. Mat rental: $2, Towel rental: $2
