Studio Etiquette

Frequently Asked Questions 

 

RESERVATIONS / CANCELLATIONS / ON-TIME

In fairness to all, we start and end sessions on time, doors locked, with no late entries to avoid guest disruption.   We encourage your early arrival of 10-15 minutes before class, to settle in and settle down.   

QUIET TIME / PERSONAL ITEMS

This is your time to unplug – for your peace of mind and the safety of others, absolutely NO cellphones, apple watches, shoes, laptops, purses, or other personal items in the yoga studio.  All of that will be waiting for you after class.  Give yourself the gift of an hour without distractions. In the case of an emergency, please feel free to leave our studio phone number.

Please leave your valuables, jewelry, eyewear, apple watches, cell phones, etc. safely locked in your car or outside of the Studio Space. We do not assume responsibility for your personal lost/stolen/damaged items. 

Creating a calm, inspiring, and positive experience for every member of our community is important to us.

We value your acceptance, patience, non-judgement and trust in our sacred space. We appreciate your quiet whispers in the studio, and so will the others trying to settle down before class.  

        

INJURIES / PROPS / KIDS     

You are highly encouraged to communicate with your Yoga Instructor about any injuries or conditions you are experiencing.  Please alert us to your limitations or personal preferences in regards to hands-on adjustments, allergies, essential oils, and aromatherapy, so we can respect your wishes.   

Please return, fold, and wipe down the props that you borrow during class.   

We love kiddos!  However, your children are never to be left unattended in the building while you are in class or therapy.  

WHAT IF I'M COMPLETELY NEW TO YOGA?

First, Welcome Love - Second, no worries - we've got you.  Stepping into a studio where you are totally new is super intimidating!  We specialize in Beginners...and we completely understand how you feel.  "Yoga is for Everyone" -  This isn't just a tagline we use.  We mean it and we're prepared to show you!  If you're uncertain about where to start - We're here to help you find what works best for YOU.  Our goal is to guide you, and to allow you to feel comfortable and at ease every step of the way.  At Tranquil Soul, YOU are family.  

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR CLASS?

Come to class hydrated and eat lightly.  For sessions that move & energize, be prepared to challenge yourself in a mindful manner – working toward your edge, without stressing or straining. For restorative sessions, prepare to relax and let go.  Let your instructor know about any injuries or concerns that may effect your practice.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING ?

Your yoga mat, water bottle, an open heart & mind, and your smile of course.  No mat?  You can borrow one of ours.  Everything else you need is here.

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR ?

Clean, comfortable athletic wear that you can easily move in. Wear deodorant...Skip the perfume.  Please remove your shoes at the entry door.  Yoga is typically practiced barefoot, so your feet can stick to the mat more firmly.   

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF YOGA?

Increased strength and flexibility, decreased stress, healthy joints, improved mood, coordination, focus and more are just some of the health benefits of yoga. A regular practice will change your everyday quality of life inside and outside, in more ways than you might imagine!

HOW DO I KNOW WHICH CLASSES ARE BEST FOR ME?

Where you begin with your practice is where you will receive the most benefit and that depends on your physical ability, injuries or physical limitations, your personality, and your fitness/relaxation goals.  Tranquil Soul encourages you to try a VARIETY of classes and teachers to see what resonates with you.  We will help guide you through class types – from gentle to challenging, as well as teacher styles. Also, please check out the Class Descriptions tab for detailed class information.
