When you enter the yoga room, we ask that you arrange your mat and any props quietly. Many members use their time before class to relax or meditate so we try to keep the room as silent as possible before class begins.
The yoga room is also a technology-free zone. We ask that you refrain from bringing your cell phone or other electronic devices into the class. Please also be sure to turn your phone on silent so that the members do not hear it ringing from the locker rooms or lounge during a class.
Viveka Yoga is a small community space where we love to chat and get know each other but we also ask that you are respectful of those who choose to enter the yoga room early or stay late to relax or meditate. Please keep your voice down in the lounge area if ever there are people in the yoga room.
We also ask that you refrain from wearing any perfumes or colognes during class, and please be mindful of tracking in the smell of cigarette smoke. In a small, warm space these kinds of smells can be amplified and are often distracting when we are working on breath techniques.
Please use your towel to wipe up any sweat left on the floor around your mat after class.
Please also wipe down and return any mats or props that you rented or borrowed from us to their appropriate places after each class.
Please refrain from leaving the yoga room during the class unless absolutely necessary.
We ask that you leave your personal belongings in the change rooms. There are cubbies inside the locker rooms for you to store any valuables. We lock the door to the studio before the start of each class so no one can enter, but whenever possible please try to leave your valuables at home. We are not responsible for any lost or stolen items.
We do not tolerate bullying, competitiveness or discrimination of any kind in our studio space. All members have the right to practice yoga in their own way. We kindly ask that you remain respectful and courteous to your fellow community members before, after and during class.
