Dancing Mind Yoga wants you to have the most enlightening experience whenever you’re attending classes here, so we ask you to please follow a handful of good, wise, and gracious yogi and yogini etiquette guidelines:
  • Be mindful of where you park, respect our neighbors please.
  • Arrive fifteen minutes early to prepare for class.
  • Please turn off all cell phones and pagers before entering studio.
  • Meet your neighbor, strike a conversation, try to connect.
  • If you’re late to class, please enter quietly.
  • Leave your shoes in the entry foyer.
  • Keep your belongings organized, on the left front side of your mat.
  • Wear loose, breathable, and comfortable gym or yoga clothing.
  • Please mention any pre-existing injury or medical condition to the instructor BEFORE class starts!
  • Stay present. Focus on your own practice, and let go of judgment and competition.
  • Start where you are. Respect your body. Practice Ahimsa, non-violence on yourself first. Be willing to accept where you are, how you are today, and the rest will come in time.
  • If you sweat profusely, bring a towel. Please clean up sweat around your area at the end of class.
  • Stay quiet during class. Save questions for after class. We are only in a pose for a brief moment, it can take a lifetime to master an Asana.
  • If you need to leave class early, please let the teacher know before class begins, and do not leave after savasana (resting pose) begins to avoid disturbing other students as you exit. Remember that savasana and meditation are two crucial elements of a yoga class, and it does not take more than 5 minutes.
  • Please bring an open mind and a willing spirit.
