Studio Etiquette

New Students

We ask all new students to complete a Registration and Waiver Form prior to taking a class.

Shoes and Belongings

Upon entering the studio, please remove your shoes and leave your personal belongings in the hallway entry space. You may bring your purse or wallet into the studio registration room if desired.

Yoga Mats

You may bring your own mat, however we do offer complimentary mats to students who need one. If you use one of our mats, please wipe them down (with wipes provided) after use. For students who bring their own mats, consider putting your name in permanent black marker on the front edge of your mat.

Cell Phone Use

Please turn off or mute your cell phone upon entering the studio.

Late Arrivals or Leaving Early

If you arrive late or must leave class early, please take a spot closest to the door to allow for minimal distraction. Please let your instructor know in advance that you are leaving early.

Peace and Tranquility Reign

Please speak quietly in the studio and respect those who wish to be quiet before the practice begins. If you are late, please enter the studio quietly so as not to disrupt other students.

Hands-On Instruction

Instructors may provide hands-on adjustments to help you find freedom and benefit in your poses. If you are at all uncomfortable with this, please advise your instructor before class.

Studio Facilities

We have a bathroom and changing room available for your convenience.

Personal Care

It is best not to use perfumes and lotions prior to class because lotions can make skin slippery, making it difficult to hold positions and some students and instructors may have allergies that could be aggravated by heavy perfumes or lotions.

Be Considerate

To honor each other and the studio please take care to tidy up after yourself and be conscious of the shared use of the studio space. If you notice any uncleanliness that needs to be address please inform CLHA staff and we will address it promptly.
