Yoga Junkie Studio Etiquette

• Be on time. Please be seated in the yoga room a few minutes before the start of each class. Each class is organized with a beginning, middle and end, all of which contribute to your experience. If you come in late to class, you not only miss a part of this experience but you will disrupt the yoga experience for someone else as well.

• Turn off cell phones and pagers when entering the yoga space.

• In order for us to preserve our floors, we ask that you take off shoes before entering the yoga room.

• Roll your mat out quietly and please move your mat if needed when making room for more students in a crowded class.

• Please be considerate of other students by keeping your voice down when a class is in session or when entering or leaving the yoga room.

• If you need to leave the yoga room, please do so in between postures. When returning please do the same.

• It is your responsibility to inform the instructor if you are pregnant or have any injuries before class.

• Please avoid leaving early. If you do need to leave early, please kindly let the teacher know before class and do so before savasana begins.

• Do not bring food or open containers in the yoga room. Please refrain from chewing gum during class.

• New Students are required to sign a waiver prior to participating in their first class, arrive a few minutes early.

• While taking a class or workshop, please store personal items on one of the storage shelves/spaces available. You are responsible for your personal belongings, Yoga Junkie Studio is not responsible for any lost items.

• Practice propasana: please put all yoga props away neatly and fold blankets.

    I was wondering if you use light weights in any of your classes…for added toning, perhaps for the arms? I would be classified as a “beginner / “senior” / and in need of help in preventing osteoporosis.

      Hi Oma! Thank you so much for checking us out online. We don’t use weights, but we do toning is incorporated into our class design, using the weight of our bodies. It’s more than heavy enough, when used in the proper form and technique, to build strength and help in preventing injury and disease. We hope you will join us to check it out. We do offer a Yoga In Chairs class for those that might need a little more assistance with their balance. Have a wonderful day!

    I guess you can say, “I have the YogaBug!” I find myself always finding a way to stretch in on way or another, or maybe even finding a way to get into a balance pose while cleaning or cooking. 😀 I was cooking one day and decided that I needed to pop what I could of my back, but not on the floor, next best thing, the door frame. My daughter comes in on her phone and is talking to me for a minute before she even notices that I’m upside-down LOL “Mom! WHAT ARE YOU DOING??” “Stuff and Thangs, but I’m a little stuck right now, can you push my butt back to the other side of the door? Good spawn.”
    Also, wanted to let everyone know that even with an impinged muscle in my shoulder, I was able to go from my stomach to a plank without stopping on my knees!! Super awesome, I know! Totally surprised the dooky out of myself and I wanted to jump out of that plank and do a dance, but I was just to damn tired. I’m hoping that that wasn’t my last one. I love being a Junkie and never wanna look back!!!
