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, Yoga for Healthy Aging or Yoga for Better Breathing 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!
