BE ON TIME !
It sounds obvious, but this is a very important rule and many centers will not let you join a course that has already started.It is a matter of respect: towards yourself and your practice, towards the teacher but also towards others who try to concentrate on their practice.In addition, it allows you to have a little time to relax and a few minutes to ask questions of the teacher before the start of the session!
Most centers don't allow phones, and in some cases like the heated Bikram yoga room, bringing your phone might not do him any good.Yoga allows for “Disconnet to Self-connect”, so turn off your phone and take it out of the room so you can fully concentrate on your practice.
IT IS BEST TO BE BAREFOOT
It may seem strange to very athletic people when they go to their first yoga class, but no shoes or socks are needed for yoga, and it helps you have a better grip on your mat during each posture. .The downward dog pose is not a lot of fun with slippery socks!
DO NOT GET ON OTHERS CARPETS
Not only does that make sense when it comes to hygiene (imagine putting your face where someone just put their foot - yuck), but it's also about respect.Some people see their mat as an extension of themselves and their practice, so it is important to be careful not to step on someone else's mat.
You share a space with other people, so be mindful.You might sweat, so wash yourself, don't put on too much perfume or cologne, and bring a towel for the more energetic sessions.Also, return the materials you used to where you picked them up.
DO NOT JUDGE
Maybe you are not able to achieve the balance posture on the arms like the person in front of you, or to bury your face in your shins in the posture of the standing clamp like your teacher?Don't judge yourself and others.Each person is exactly at his place in his practice.So be forgiving, humble, and focus on your breathing.
