Sohot common sense guidelines


  • Please remove outdoor shoes before entering.  Leave them on the racks in the foyer – those of you with expensive glass slippers can put them in your locker if you prefer.
  • Hand your membership fob to our receptionists at the front desk before going to the changing rooms or placing your mat down in the studio. This includes all of you clever clogs who have registered online.
  • Arrive with enough time to set up your spot before the teacher starts class.  Late comers will not be admitted.
  • Maintain silence in the yoga room.  Many students use the time before class to quietly meditate and prepare for class.

 

  • Only pure water allowed in the yoga room (no food, glass or other drinks).
  • Put your mat up to the designated lines so everyone can then see themselves in the mirror and your feet are not in anyone’s face during the floor series.
  • No whining or complaining.
  • No shoes, flip-flops,  gum, cell phones, bags or belongings in the yoga room.
  • Come to class with clean feet and body.   If you need to, please shower before class.

  • Have fun and smile at all times!
  • Keep the energy in the room by staying for the full 90 minutes of the class, only leave in an emergency.  This means going to the toilet prior to class.
  • Come to class sober.
  • Giving yourself an impromptu pedicure in class is frowned upon not to mention disgusting.
  • Please wear appropriate clothing that fits you, (this means no thongs or speedos!) to ensure that your dignity is preserved at all times.
  • Do not use aerosol sprays in the changing rooms.   During class you have opened up your lungs, so getting a lung full of toxins is not good for you or others.
  • Practice stillness in between postures focusing on your breath with no fidgeting, wiping sweat, burping or other bodily movements.

  • Please no perfume, cologne or heavily-scented lotion in class.   Did you know one in five people have negative reactions to scented products?
  • Don’t hog the showers, be quick, others are waiting.
  • Shaving in the showers is unacceptable!
  • Leave your ego with your shoes, outside reception.
