It is my first time at the classes, what should I expect?
Arrive 5 minutes before the class begins to give yourself time to get setup for your class.When you arrive at the classes, you can remove your shoes upon entering and place at the left hand side of the door. We adhere to a noble silence before the class so that everyone can reap the benefits of the stillness and silence.
There will be yoga mats spread out and you can go to any of these. Lay down keeping conversation to a minimum and make yourself comfortable while you wait for class to begin. You will have a pillow , a blanket, a bolster for under your knees and an eye pillow to block out light and keep you internal during the laying down Meditations.
What should I wear?
Wear anything that is comfortable seated and laying down. We provide everything but if you feel you need extra blankets and a bottle of water you can bring those along.
1. Mobile phones should be on airplane mode or off entirely. 2. Arrive 5 minutes early only to allow time to settle and get yourself situated before class begins.
