1. DO arrive 10 minutes early. New students can get to know the class and talk to the instructor. Arriving early also gives you time to lay out your mat, stretch and catch up with teachers and participants.
2. DO let your teacher know about any injuries or pains. Let the teacher know if any medical conditions may affect your practice. Talk to the teacher before and after the class and let them know if any pains arise.
3. DO remove your shoes as soon as you enter the room and leave them at the entrance in the appropriate space to ensure maximum hygiene and comfort to all the participants.
4. DO turn off mobile phones and other distractions. Enjoy the yoga class in full awareness while at the studio. Leave work, home and other thoughts behind.
5. DO maintain silence. Talking during the class distracts your yoga practice and others’.
6. DO bring your own mat. Feel free to use AtréYoga mats as a base layer. Top layer mats are also available, but you are advised to bring your mat for hygiene reasons.
7. DO expect adjustments. One of the precepts of AtréYoga is adjustments, and teachers are expected to guide you gently with appropriate touch.
8. DO what you easily can. There is no competition. You are expected to move at your own pace. Listen to your body and do not push yourself.
9. DO put mats away neatly. Roll up mats neatly after the class, and put them in the appropriate slots for top and base layer mats.
10. DO share your feedback. Do talk to the teacher after the class about your experience.
