The following advice is for everyone’s comfort during practice:

  • It is best not to eat for at least three and a half hours before practice. Light food and drink (such as fruit) may be consumed closer to class if you need energy
  • Bathe or shower before practice (or wash your feet and arm pits if you can’t shower)
  • Do not wear any heavy perfume (your fellow practitioners may be allergic)
  • Bring a small towel to wipe your sweat off
  • Keep your mat clean and wash your towel and practice clothes
  • Do not drink during practice and leave any bottles or personal items in the shelves dedicated for this
  • Ladies should take 3 days holiday from yoga practice at the beginning of menstruation and not practice inversions while still bleeding. Ask your teacher for advice if you are unsure.
  • If you have a regular practice it is recommended to take one day a week off (usually Saturday or Sunday) and rest on Moon days (full and new moon)
  • Mention any injuries or illness to your teacher
  • Inform your teacher if you become pregnant
  • Don’t hesitate to ask your teacher for help
