NEW YOGI CHECKLIST

  • If this is your first class, please fill out a registration form, which you can either bring with you or fill out when you arrive.
  • Make sure you note any special health conditions such as illnesses, injuries and physical restrictions on the form. If you have a health condition that might affect your practice, please make sure to check with your doctor prior to practicing.
  • Registration for classes is not necessary but is encouraged.
  • Registration for events is sometimes required and always recommended.
  • There are blankets, blocks, bolsters and straps to help you achieve the safest, most optimal posture possible. Please bring your own yoga mat.
  • If you're new to yoga, you'll probably find Breathe & Stretch or Yoga for Healthy Aging most suitable for your first experience. However, individual student needs vary, so please call, text or email Susan for a recommendation. Private lessons are also highly recommended for students new to yoga.
  • Please arrive 5-10 minutes early and don't leave class early.
  • Turn off cell phones.
  • Please remove shoes before entering the sanctuary
  • Dress in comfortable, relatively form-fitting clothes that allow for movement.
  • Practicing barefoot is recommended.
  • Practicing on a light stomach is recommended.
  • Do what you can without straining or injuring yourself. (No pain! No pain!)
  • Please pick up and neatly put away any props you use.
  • With consistent practice, you will improve more quickly than you think!
  • I love talking about yoga and am happy to answer your questions any time!
