Remember the studio classrooms are a place of quiet. Most of us have hectic lives and this is oftentimes our only peaceful space. You can talk in the lobby all you want!
Have a favorite spot in the classroom to practice? Come to class 15 minutes early to get your spot so you don't have to disrupt anyone else. Then you will have time to contemplate Aparighara (grasping) and begin to let go:)
Leave your shoes and your excuses in the lobby. You feet will thank you!
We have studio mats you may use if you don't have one. Just hang it on the bar and we will clean it later. We also sell mats that are of better quality than one from a big box store.
