Clothing, Perfumes, Mats and Serious Illness
Please wear clothing that is readily available to you, comfortable and loose-fitting.
Students wear shorts, tights, sweats or baggy pants of all types. Barefoot is
recommended but not required; we do ask that you take shoes off and leave
them in the waiting room. Please no perfumes, colognes or candles of any type,
as some students have severe allergic reactions to them. We have plenty of mats
available to loan and we also provide mat storage for students who want to
leave their mats at the studio.
Remember: it is the student's responsibility NOT to come to class if you have a
bad cold, flu or serious illness which can be readily transmitted to your fellow yogis!
