Classes will begin promptly at the the designated time. We ask that you arrive on time to honor the space for a mindful practice for yourself and others.
We ask that you leave your personal belongings outside of the yoga room if possible, and mute or turn cellphones off while you are here. We offer a secure space for you to leave any shoes, keys, cellphones or other items.
Please remove your shoes before entering our studio.
Bring your own water bottle if possible. We have a filtered water cooler available for refills and paper cups if needed. (we no longer offer bottled water to reduce plastic waste)
