Ahimsa is a Sanskrit word meaning non-violence – especially in yoga by not harming your body, forcing any movements, or doing more than your higher self knows to. Practice Stira and Sukha, or steadiness and ease. Do no harm in thought, word, or deed and please treat everyone including managers, teachers, and other students with kindness, compassion, and respect.
Satya means truthfulness. Be honest in all of your communications. We also ask that you please remain true to your intention for registration, participation and payment for the classes, workshops, trainings & wellness appointments.
Meaning order, tidiness, or cleanliness, saucha reminds us to “leave no trace,” even in the yoga classroom. Mindfully place your belongings including shoes, coats, bags in the cubbies provided. When you enter the studio, please set your mat in alignment with the other rows. At the close of the class continue the practice of Saucha and Karma Yoga by replacing all props to the place and presentation in which you found them. Also avoid wearing perfumes, smoking, or having strong body odor when coming to class as many students have scent sensitivities. Chewing gum is not allowed in the studio.
When leaving the studio, please keep your voices low as there are other classes and workshops doing wonderful healing work. Let’s not disturb them!
Please do not use cell phones in the yoga studio. Please leave your cell phone in the car or in your bag and make sure they are turned off. We suggest that you do not bring any valuables into the yoga studio as we are not responsible for lost or stolen items.
