Yoga Etiquette 

Ahimsa-Yoga with Keri asks that you respect and follow the basic rules for yoga etiquette to keep a safe, peaceful experience for all:

•please arrive in plenty of time before class. If you arrive more than 5 minutes after the class is scheduled to begin, the door may be locked and you may be denied entry.

•if you do arrive a few minutes late, please be respectful of others whose practice has already begun and slip in and set up quietly.

•please remove your shoes and leave them outside of the studio/practice space

•if you need to leave early, please leave before Savasana and do so quietly without disrupting other students.

•turn off cell phones and keep them stored with your belongings

•please respect others by maintaining proper hygiene and modesty and refrain from wearing fragrance/perfumes to class

•if you smoke, please refrain from smoking prior to entering class/studio/or private session.

•all classes are mixed level. Practice at your own level; if you need to rest, please honor your body and do so.  You always have the option to take Child’s pose/Balasana.  I always start with the foundation of a posture and will offer variations from there to take the posture deeper or explore a more advanced variation of the posture if the student decides it is safe for them to do so.  Please don’t ever feel you have to take those variations.

•I will try to get around to everyone to briefly discuss but if there is something going on in your body that I need to know about, please inform me prior to the start of class. (Pregnancy, injuries, health concerns – anything that may require special attention).

•Ahimsa-Yoga with Keri reserves the right to refuse admittance to anyone who is disruptive, disrespectful, or disturbing any students or teacher, who practices in an unsafe manner, or who fails to follow the instruction of the teacher/studio.
