Guidelines for Class Etiquette
For the best possible experience, please arrive at least 5-10 minutes early for class. This way you can have all your props assembled and be ready to go when class begins. If life makes you late for the start of class, please enter the studio as quietly and mindfully as possible, understanding that the flow has already begun. Please do not enter a class more than 15 minutes late; you have missed the warm up and risk injuring yourself.
To help keep the studio floors clean, please leave outdoor shoes in the cubbies outside the studio. All shoes worn in classes must be indoor shoes only.
Please leave all cell phones outside of the studio. If you must be “on call,” please silence your phone and take all calls or texts outside the room, entering and exiting as quietly as possible.
Please keep conversations during class to a minimum. It is disruptive to both the teacher and the other students.
Please refrain from wearing perfumes or strong scents to class. Many people are sensitive to smells.
At Lumina, we strive to create the most supportive, fun and relaxing community possible. Thank you for your positive energy, your mindfulness and your support.
Students who arrive more than 15 minutes late to any Lumina class are at risk for injury, and therefore will be denied entry. Please plan accordingly. Try to arrive 5-10 minutes early to class in order to set up your equipment and be present at the beginning of the practice. If class has already begun when you arrive, please enter the studio as mindfully and silently as possible so as not to disturb the other students and flow of the class.
Students who wish to leave early from a class must inform the instructor prior to the beginning of class, and leave no later than the beginning of Savasana for yoga classes.
While we understand that sometimes “life happens,” it is for your safety and the enjoyment of all to have minimal disruptions during class.
Thank you for your understanding and proper planning.
