Yoga Etiquette

Yoga Etiquette

  • Yoga is done barefoot. Please remove your shoes and leave them in the changing rooms or on the rack outside the yoga studio.
  • Please remember to take all your clothes and towels after class.
  • Cleanliness is important. Please always shower the day you come to class. Although we sweat and work hard, you should still come to class clean.
  • Mats and towels are a must.
  • Whether you are walking in or out of the yoga room, close the door behind you.
  • Class starts promptly. No late arrivals will be admitted. Yoga is a discipline. Be on time and don’t expect to leave before the class time is up.
  • Please do not talk during class.
  • Mobiles must be switched off or on silent.
  • Come to class hydrated. Do not eat 1 to 2 hours before class.
  • Hot Yoga Athlone is not responsible for any items lost or stolen. You are welcome to take your valuables into class with you.
  • Beginners should really opt for the third row.
  • Try not to stand directly in front of another student. Stagger each row.
  • If you need to rest during class, kneel down on your towel and drink some water. If you are very dizzy you can lie down.
  • It is important to stay until the end of class. Postures towards the end of the series are designed to cool you down, calm you and complete the class. Even if you feel like leaving, sit down, drink water and you will feel okay in a matter of minutes. Try to do one set of each of the last postures.
  • If you have any medical conditions/injuries, please advise the teacher in advance of class.
  • Abandon the competitive mind set. Yoga is absolutely non-competitive.

All teachers at Hot Yoga Athlone have been trained and certified. If you have any questions, teachers will be available after class.
