Guidelines and Student Etiquette

Welcome to Sunrise Yoga!

Here are a few things you should know to enhance your learning and practice of yoga. Have fun and joy the class!

  • Ask questions about anything that’s not clear to you.
  • If you have a health issue (illness, injury, pregnancy or medical condition), please notify the instructor before class. Not every pose is appropriate for everyone.
  • Refrain from eating 2-3 hours before class. If you must eat something, try to make it something light, such as fruit.
  • Yoga is non-competitive.
  • Stay within your physical limitations. This means carefully listening to what your body is telling you and honoring its messages, erring on the side of safety.
  • Be kind and loving to yourself by accepting where you are. Do what you can do.
  • No experience or flexibility is required to practice yoga. Yoga is for anyone at any age.
  • Please be on time. Allow yourself plenty of time to park, sign in, gather your props, and settle into class.
  • Please remove your shoes before entering the practice room.
  • If you arrive late, please place your mat closer to the door so you don’t disturb other students in the room.
  • Please turn off your electronics before class.
  • Practice good props management by returning all props to their appropriate place at the end of class.
  • If you use one of our eye pillows, please place a tissue over your eyes first for hygiene reasons.
  • If you borrow one of our mats, please spray the mat with cleaner (provided in the practice room) and wipe it dry with paper towels. Leave it on the floor to dry.
  • Refrain from wearing heavy scents in class.
  • Wear clothes that are stretchy and invite movement within the body. Practice in bare feet.
  • Stay for the entire class. If it is necessary to leave early, please stop your practice ten minutes early and lie down in Savasana(relaxation) before you go.

The more you practice yoga,
the greater thebenefits.
