Yoga practice helps you quiet your mind, develop greater mental focus, increase your wellbeing, build strength and flexibility. This guide gives you the basic information to get started.
First Visit Please arrive 15 minutes early. We have some simple paperwork to complete and you can speak to us about any special needs you may have.
PureOm Yoga Studio is open 15 minutes before class. Please arrive at least 5-10 minutes early. You can chat with the teacher, warm up with a few stretches (though we will warm up during class) and get settled on your mat.
If you are late: The studio doors are closed during class. We begin on time and close the door punctual at the scheduled beginning of each class. If you are late, unfortunately, you won't be able to enter the studio and join.
Clothes: Wear comfortable, stretchy clothing. It should allow a full range of movement including twisting and bending. Our studio has changing rooms.
Bring:We recommend that you bring and use your own yoga mat (for personal hygiene). If you don't have a yoga mat, we have free mats to use and all other yoga props for your convenience. Please also bring water (there is water available for purchase at the studio too).
Avoid: Strong perfume, essentials oils, cologne, and other scents. Respect the space and your fellow students by keeping your mat and body clean and odor-free.
Eating & Drinking: Allow 2 - 3 hours to elapse after a heavy meal or 1 hour after a light meal. A little water is okay, but too much liquid can be uncomfortable.
Footwear: Yoga is practiced in bare feet to find stable, balanced contact with the floor, which is essential for standing poses. Working with bare feet also provides a rare opportunity to stretch and strengthen the feet. Since we walk around the studio barefoot, it is most hygienic if everyone takes off their street shoes first thing at the front door. Please put your shoes on and off right at the door, shoes are not allowed on the practice floor, nor in the tea lounge or inside the studio.
Electronic devices: Please turn off your cell phone or choose silent mode.
Personal belongings: Please leave them in the changing room. There is space for your valuables (phone, money) in the Yoga Room.
Communicate: Let us know if you have any injuries, limitations, or concerns.
Other people’s mats: Please do not step on other people’s mats – for some it is their sacred space.
Prices & Payment: We don't have a card machine so please bring enough cash to pay for your yoga pass. Please note that only the blue classes are included in your unlimited class pass or 10 or 5 class pack. Green classes have to be paid separately. Thank you.
Clean: If you are borrowing a mat from the studio you can use the cleaning spray and a towel to wipe it down before your practice.
On the Mat Yoga practice typically involves a series of physical postures that are coordinated with full breathing and a mental focus on the present moment. It is a lifelong practice and there’s no need to do it all on the first try. During class we offer modifications for the physical poses so you can choose to make them more or less challenging depending on your mood and needs. We want the practice to suit you and feel good.
In yoga practice, there is no competition. It is an opportunity for you to practice relaxed awareness of your body, breath and mind. Challenge yourself but don’t push too hard – yoga should never be painful. If you can’t breathe, it’s a warning to back off a little and reduce the intensity of the pose.
Child’s pose: Take care of yourself in the practice, rest in child's pose whenever you need a break. You can take this pose at any time, even if the teacher does not cue it.
Savasana: This is the last pose of class where we lay down and close our eyes. It is an important pose because your breath and heart rate will return to normal, your muscles relax, your body temperature drops and your nervous system is refreshed and revitalised.
Take your belongings: Don’t forget your mat, water bottle, and valuables.
Return: If you borrowed a mat and used yoga props, please return them neatly.
Shoes: Please put your shoes on at the door right before you leave. Please do not walk into the tea lounge or studio with your shoes on. Thank you.
Enjoy: a cup of hot tea with us after class, chat and connect with the teacher and your fellow yogis.
