ARRIVE EARLY. (Especially if it’s your first class.)
This allows time to find a space, unroll your mat and collect your props (any blankets, bolsters, blocks or straps you need to modify poses) without disturbing anyone. It also gives you an opportunity to get into the right mind-set. If you are late, wait until after the teacher’s opening ritual — it could be a reading, a breathing exercise, a meditation, a sequence of oms — before entering; otherwise you are interrupting the class while it is trying to get grounded.
PLAN TO STAY FOR THE WHOLE CLASS.
If you must leave early, let the teacher know, and do it before savasana, the period of final relaxation at the end of class. Again, this is to not disturb your classmates during a key part of class — experts often say savasana is the most important and challenging pose in yoga. Whether coming or going, try not to step on anyone’s mat.
We have a shoe rack for that purpose; use it (or at least put your shoes where no one will trip over them). There are cultural, practical and spiritual reasons for this rule. Many Asian countries where yoga is practiced share the tradition of removing shoes when entering a home, school or temple as a sign of respect. Furthermore, yoga is practiced on the floor, and tracking in dirt makes the studio unclean. And, finally, the concept of grounding — literally and figuratively is very important in yoga — it’s simply easier to ground yourself if your feet are making direct contact with the floor.
LEAVE YOUR CELLPHONE OUTSIDE THE ROOM.
This is so you can fully disconnect and others won’t be disturbed. It is also to ensure you don't disturb others.
BRING WATER, A TOWEL, AND, IF POSSIBLE, YOUR OWN MAT.
If you need to drink water it’s fine, she said, but in general, yoga is “not like a Western exercise, when you want to be chugging water.” You can use a towel for more than wiping sweat — it can serve as a prop to keep your head level during savasana or as a clean layer over a communal yoga mat. Bring your own mat for hygienic reasons: “You’re going to have your face down on that mat.”
AVOID PERFUME OR SCENTED LOTION.
These can be distracting for fellow students who don’t find your fragrance as pleasant as you do.
You want something comfortable that you can move in that isn’t prone to a wardrobe malfunction or to bunching up and getting in your way: think stretchy, breathable fabrics. Dress codes vary. It’s not unusual to see shirtless men, and women in sports bras.
LET THE TEACHER KNOW ABOUT ANY PHYSICAL ISSUES AND PREFERENCES.
If you have a problem such as a bad back or a frozen shoulder, or if you prefer not to receive any hands-on assists (this is when a teacher touches a student to improve their alignment or make them more comfortable), let the instructor know before class.
CLEAN UP AFTER CLASS.
Wipe down any borrowed mats after practice and put props away where they belong.
BE COMPASSIONATE AND DO NOT JUDGE.
The yoga practice often helps us to release pain and discomfort in the body, mind or spirit. The body might release these toxins and emotions in many different ways in many different forms, including passing gas or crying. Try not to react. It always goes back to having the yoga space being that safe inclusive comfortable space for whatever comes up and for whatever’s needed. In fact, your focus should be inward. During your practice.
It’s important to keep the tenor of your interactions with other students in the studio as one that’s positive, so that it’s a place of positivity for everyone

Vinyasa is a style of yoga characterized by stringing postures together so that you move from one to another, seamlessly, using breath. Commonly referred to as “flow” yoga. Vinyasa classes offer a variety of postures and no two classes are ever alike. Vinyasa Yoga is one of the most popular forms of the practice in the world today.
Ashtanga Yoga is is a highly structured vinyasa-style class. There are five Ashtanga asana series and each student must master every pose of the first series before moving onto the second series. Ashtanga Yoga came to the west through students of Sri Pattabi Jois, who passed away in 2009 after establishing his yoga center in Mysore, India.
The first series begins with ten sun salutations (five A and five B), continues with a series of standing poses done on each side, and finishes with a set of inversions and seated poses, which are linked by a vinyasa sequence.
Iyengar Yoga is a purist style of yoga developed by and named after B.K.S Iyengar in the 1960s. Iyengar Yoga is a very meticulous style of yoga, placing the emphasis on precision and alignment. The practice is all about the details of your breath control (pranayama) and posture (asana) and is excellent for building strength and flexibility. Iyengar yoga is great for learning the subtleties of correct alignment for all ages and abilities.

Yoga Nidra or yogic sleep as it is commonly known, is an immensely powerful meditation technique, and one of the easiest yoga practices to develop and maintain. While the practitioner rests comfortably in savasana (corse pose), this systematic meditation takes you through the nacho maya kosher (five layers of self), leaving you with a sense of wholeness.
