WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN ATTENDING CLASSES
And some helpful studio etiquette, so everyone can enjoy the classes. *Also applies to all other classes.
Upon arriving at Saimavik Studio, you will enter from the front door. Please leave your shoes/boots and parkas in the entrance area. Bring in your valuables and place them in the kitchen.
Please arrive at least 5 minutes early but no earlier then 15 minutes before the class (we may have other classes in progress). Arriving early will give you a chance to get changed, talk with your teacher about any concerns or injuries you may have, get settled in and relaxed before your class.
Silence is Key
Please turn your phone to silent & put them away for the duration of the class. (some people are on-call and must keep their portable device handy) Be quiet as you move to your desired space. This will allow for everyone to settle in comfortably and mindfully.
Wear flexible clothing. Check class descriptions to know if you should dress warmer or cooler. Most classes will get you sweating while Yin classes wont; dress accordingly so you can enjoy your practice to it’s fullest. Use clean clothing for each class you attend.
Please refrain from wearing perfumes and colognes. It is very important to maintain a clean body. Please freshen up before class if needed.
Do your best and keep in mind that your best can vary from day to day. Rest when you need to, drink water, use the washroom; do what feels right to your body. Over time your practice will get stronger.
Feel free to talk to your teacher after class about any comments, questions or concerns you may have. However, keep in mind their may be another class starting shortly.
