Online Yoga Etiquette
To get the most from your yoga class, especially if it is your first time attending, follow these simple tips.
Remove your shoes
Yoga is traditionally practiced in bare feet. You may want to leave socks on in the beginning for comfort and warmth and then remove them when you start to practice.
Turn off your cell phone or anything that buzzes, beeps or makes noise (including watches)
This is a great time to be tech free.
Listen to your body
Be respectful and follow the teachers sequence but also listen to your body and modify as you need too. This might mean not doing a posture or a pranayama if it doesn’t work for you.
Leave your ego behind
Yoga is not a competition. There aren’t any prizes for the best pose or longest held pranayama. Your practice will be different every single day. Be present to your body and emotions during practice.
Respect yourself and your peers
Practicing yoga in a group setting requires a commitment to presence and honoring one another. Observe silence before, during and after class although sighing and other soft sounds often happen in practice.
Don’t skip Savasana or relaxation
The last posture of class is usually savasana or corpse pose. During this time the body, mind and spirit integrates the work done during class. Give yourself this gift of stillness and quiet.
Check in with your teacher
Let your teacher know of any injuries or conditions that might affect your practice. This will allow your teacher to support your practice with modifications.
It’s easy to forget to breathe in yoga when you aren’t familiar with the yoga poses. Be sure not to hold your breath during class.
Don’t eat at least 1 hour before practice
A full belly often makes for an uncomfortable yoga practice. It inhibits your ability to breathe fully and move your body. Don’t chew gum during class – it is distracting to others and potentially harmful.|
