Studio Etiquette

 Before Class:

  • Be on time.  Arrive 10-15 minutes before class begins if possible to allow yourself to settle in.

  • We recommend downloading the Mindbody Online app to schedule classes. This is the easiest way to book, cancel and make purchases.

  • You must be in good health to take class. If you are showing symptoms of being unwell you will be asked to leave and come back when you are better. 

  • Turn off cell phones and leave them out of the room.

  • No shoes in the yoga room.

  • Use the time before class to quiet down, stretch, meditate and relax.  Maintain silence in the yoga room.

  • When finding a spot in the studio, please do so quietly. Please be considerate of those around you.

  • Please do not block another person’s view of the mirror.  In a full classroom, you need only see a portion of yourself in the mirror.  Adjust your mat as needed to accommodate others.

  • Have clean feet and be perfume free. In consideration for those with sensitivities or allergies, please refrain from wearing perfume, cologne, or strongly scented products in the studio.

  • The yoga studio is a smoke-free environment. If you do smoke, please shower before class.

  • No gum or glass bottles in the yoga room.

  • Do not bring anything but towels, mat, and water into the yoga room. Leave bags, purses and all other items in the lockers (bring a lock) or at home.

  • San Diego Yoga Center requires that all students must use a mat and large/beach-sized towel (for hot classes). If you don't have either, we have them for sale.

  • Please leave valuables at home or locked in a locker.  San Diego Yoga Center does not accept responsibility for any valuables that are brought in and are lost or stolen. 

During Class:

  • Please practice silence in the yoga room, hold conversations outside in the lobby or hallway.

  • Try your best! Yoga is a new experience for many in the room.

After Class:

  • Observe silence after the final savasana. Leave the room quietly, respecting others.

  • Be considerate to your fellow yogis and limit your shower time to 2-3 minutes.

  • Mind that you have all of your things before leaving. Lost and Found is donated regularly.

  • Enjoy the peace and energy you’ve created for yourself here at San Diego Yoga Center!
