Yoga Classes - Studio Policies & Etiquette
Effective January 1, 2015
PLEASE ARRIVE EARLY SO THAT YOU ARE IN THE STUDIO BEFORE THE CLASS BEGINS. If you are late, please enter the room quietly so you do not disturb the other students and the teacher in class. It is disrespectful to slam the door or to snap release your mat. Instead, please close the door without any sound and unroll your mat very slowly and quietly. It is important to complete the whole yoga class for your well-being, commitment to your practice, and respect for the teacher and community. Please arrive early and do not leave class early so you can enjoy your whole experience at 8 Limbs Yoga.

A Sanskrit word meaning order, tidiness, or cleanliness. Please leave all of your belongings in the Boutique retail space; your shoes, keys and other small items in the cubbies provided. Water should be drunk before and after class but not brought inside the studio. We try to keep the studio empty and clear. The teacher will let you know the best way to arrange your mat for the class that you are attending. Please feel free to practice vairagya, or non-attachment, in the studio by moving your asana practice to new places. There are no reserved spaces.
Cell phones are not permitted inside the yoga studio. Please leave your cell phone in the car or in your bag in the Boutique and make sure they are turned off. We suggest that you do not bring any valuables into the yoga studio as we are not responsible for lost or stolen items.
