Studio Etiquette:

 

    • Stay for the duration of your class; if you need to leave early, alert instructor beforehand and place your mat near the door.

    • Keep talking to a minimum once you enter yoga rooms. Many use the time before and after class to meditate. Making friends is great, but we encourage visiting in the lobby area to be respectful to everyone. Be mindful of voice volume when classes are still in session in other yoga spaces.

    • Clients being rude or disrespectful to Firelight Yoga staff, independently contracted instructors, or other clients may be asked to leave.

    • Do no bring your cell phone with you into the yoga rooms. Apple watches should be set to “do not disturb.” Students looking at cell phones and Apple watches is distracting to other students, the teacher, as well as to you. Give yourself 60+ minutes to unplug. 

    • Do not bring glass containers into the studio, including the lobby and dressing rooms. We have concrete floors and a lot of bare feet walking around! Insulated stainless steel bottles are recommended. We have filtered water available.

    • Arrive early to class. (Please review class reservation policy.) Front door locks at times once class begins, and we don’t want you to miss your time to practice! If you know you’re going to be late, a call to alert studio employees is appreciated. If you are more than 5 minutes late, you will not be able to join the class.

    • Early registration online is always encouraged; download our free app for ease of doing so. (Please refer to our class cancellation policy.)

    • Always check-in at the reception desk when you arrive for class. Place your mat in line with a “Mantraspot” sticker front and center of your mat in the yoga room.

    • For safety reasons, only current clients may enter studio rooms and changing/restrooms.

    • Be mindful of where you park; onsite lot is for condo owners only. Alternative modes of transportation to and from the studio are encouraged; we offer free mat rentals to those who choose this method of arrival.

    • Firelight Yoga is not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged personal properties inside or outside of the studio premises. Please store valuables out of site, or don’t bring them with you to your practice. We have a limited quantity of padlocks for the lockers available for free at the front desk.

    • We recommend taking at least three hot classes per week during your first two weeks of practicing. Give yourself time to acclimate to the heat.

    • For hot classes, bring the following: water, mat, and large towel to place over mat. We have these items available for rent and for sale onsite. Filtered water is available in the changing rooms. Blocks and straps also available for use. Please do not bring studio blankets and bolsters into the hot classes.

    • For non-heated classes, bring the following: water and a mat. Blocks, straps, yoga blankets, and bolsters are available for client use during classes.

    • Come well hydrated, and eat no sooner than 1.5-2 hrs before class for your best experience (unless otherwise indicated by health condition or your physician). Only water is allowed in studio rooms.

    • Showers are available in the men’s and women’s restrooms. We also have an “all-user” restroom as an alternative changing space.

    • Refrain from wearing heavily scented products or having noticeable body odor. You are welcome to shower before class as needed. Alert instructors and/or staff of any scent issues potentially associated with use of essential oils in rental mat cleansing sprays and used during classes.

    • Be aware of the safety of yourself and others during class. Please refrain from kicking your feet up on the mirrors.

    • It is your responsibility to take care of yourself and listen to your body. Rest when you need, for as long as you need to, and rejoin the class when you feel ready. Most importantly, enjoy your practice!!
