Help! I've never been to a studio before! Studio Etiquette Guide:


~Please arrive on time, 5-10 minutes before class begins is ideal, so you have time to settle in. ~Doors will be opened once your teacher is ready to let you in. Please wait for the doors to be unlocked. Before this cleaning or another class may be in progress. ~We recommend not eating for 2 hours before class or eating only very light foods. ~Turn off mobile phones before entering the studio - please do not leave on ring or vibrate. ~Please remove your shoes at the door. ~Please follow all Covid safety precautions ~Please do not attend the studio if you have any signs of illness. ~Please inform your teacher or any injuries or concerns before class begins. ~Please follow the footsteps and take the furthest available mat space. Place your mat within the marked lines. Spaces are measured for all participants and teachers to remain distanced from each other. ~Please avoid leaving your mat once class has begun. ~You will need to bring your own yoga mat. For hygine and safety we no longer provide shared mats or props. ~If you do not have a mat you can buy one from us for £20. If you would like any additional props please bring your own or you can purchase props at the studio. ~Relax - you'll be fine :)

Can I try the first day of a course before I commit to the rest?
