Yoga Etiquette

We kindly request that students respect the following conventions of yoga etiquette:

Be sure to arrive at least 10-15 minutes early so that you have time to park down the street, check in to your class, maybe rent a mat or towels, and settle in to your practice.

We know you’re happy to be here (so are we!), but please keep voices low if you’re waiting outside while classes are in session.

Please be sure not to wear shoes inside the studio.

Once you enter your class, take some quiet time to transition from your day to your mat, and be respectful of others who are doing the same.

While we discourage cell phones inside the studios while practicing, if you must have your phone, please be absolutely certain that it remains on silent. Never take a call inside the studio.

Teachers sometimes physically adjust students’ postures. If you feel uncomfortable with a teacher potentially touching you, please alert your instructor at the beginning of class, or take a white stone from the props shelf in the studio and place it at the top of your mat.

When finished with class, please be sure to clean Pavonine’s blocks and mats, and return all borrowed mats and props.

Please only use blankets and bolsters if instructed to do so by your teacher. Blankets are not to be used as sweat towels.
