• Yoga Etiquette

  • The Grace Yoga community continues to grow! We are grateful for the expanded support and want to continue to provide a sanctuary for all students. Please take the time to familiarize yourself with the studio policies and general yoga etiquette.

    *Remove shoes and leave them in the front room.
     
    *Refrain from using scents/ perfume/ cologne in class.
     
    *Please do not bring your cell phone in to the practice area. If you need to send a text, check email, or make a phone call, please do so in the front room or in the prop room. Your phones should be left in either of those locations as well. Be sure your phone is silenced or turned off. If you have a smart watch, please refrain from using this in the studio as well. This ensures a distraction-free space for all.
     
    *Any other items and your belongings should be left in the front room or in the prop room. Please do not keep them next to your mat in the studio. This ensures an uncluttered practice space and plenty of room for all students.
     
    *Please avoid entering or leaving the studio during meditation or savasana. As a courtesy to your instructors and fellow yogis we ask that you show up for class on time and commit to a full practice from start to finish. Savasana is an integral part of your practice, intended to rejuvenate your body, mind and spirit. Please respect this moment of rest and support our entire community by staying on your mat and refraining from leaving class early. If you arrive early and there is a class still in session, please wait quietly in the front room until the door is opened by the current instructor.
     
    *Signing up for a class ahead of time (either online or by phone) reserves a spot for you in the class up to five minutes before the start of class. If you do not arrive five minutes early for class, your spot may be given to someone else. If you have not signed up ahead of time you are more than welcome to still come to class! However, please keep in mind that our class sizes are limited, due to student preference. If you show up and the class is full (maximum student capacity is 20 students) we will gladly sign you up for another class. To avoid this disappointment, please sign up for classes ahead of time and arrive five minutes early!
     
    *There is a 5-minute grace period for all classes. If you arrive later than 5 minutes for a class, it is the Grace Yoga Studio policy to not let you into class even if there is space. This allows students to have an uninterrupted practice.
     
    *Please take the time after class to neatly replace all props. Leaving the prop room as you found it is a kind gesture for the next class.
     
    *Please remember to always check in for your class! Even if you are sure the front desk staff knows your name, at least make eye contact with them! We try our best to catch you all as you go through, but even the best of us need a little help every now and again.
