first class

Welcome! Here are a few tips to help make your first yoga class experience the best.

Yoga is best practiced on an empty stomach. Avoid large meals prior to your class.We also recommend that you hydrate well after class.

Wear comfortable clothing to allow freedom of movement. You may want to dress in light layers to accommodate variations in body temperature throughout your yoga practice.

Bags, purses, and other personal items can be placed in the cubbies of the lounge room. Please do not leave valuables in your car.

Cell phones MUST be turned off and silence is observed while class is in session.

Find your practice space allowing adequate distance between you and other students. Allow several inches between your mat and the next mat. Staggering your mat from your neighbor’s often gives you additional space during your yoga practice.

We appreciate a fragrance-free environment; thank you for avoiding scented body products.

For your convenience, Harmony Yoga Studio provides professional grade, earth-friendly mats for purchase in our studio. Keep in mind that a quality mat is an investment in you and your practice. Until you have your own, feel free to borrow one of our rentals for FREE.

Harmony Yoga Studio also provides blocks, straps, bolsters, pillows, and blankets for your use during yoga class. Feel free to select any of these items before class starts.

On your first visit, you will need to sign a standard waiver. You will have the option of purchasing a single class or a discounted package class card. Thereafter, the process to sign-in for a class is very simple…..print your full name on the sign-in sheet when you arrive, and the date on your class card if you are on a package.

We recommend that students arrive about 10 minutes prior to the class start time. Classes begin promptly. If you are expecting to be late for class, we can accommodate a late class entry within the first 5 minutes of class, anytime thereafter, the door will be locked.

Inform your yoga teacher of any injuries or health concerns that you may have prior to class.

We highly recommend that all students remain in class through Savasana (meditation at the end of our yoga classes). Savasana is important for rebalancing, restoring, and resting the body.

We ask that you leave your shoes on the carpet near the front entrance to help us preserve our floors. Note: Shoes are not permitted in the studio. We recommend bare feet during yoga class, although some students feel comfortable wearing socks during their yoga practice.

Our teachers and staff are here for you. If you have any questions or concerns, please inform us. We will do our best to accommodate all requests and resolve concerns quickly.
