Do I need to pre-register?
It is not necessary to pre-register for class. The first time you come please come about 10 min. early so you can complete a registration form and familiarize yourself with the supplies.
What should I bring?
Etowah Valley Yoga is a well-equipped yoga center. It is not necessary to bring any props. If you have your own you are welcome to use them as long as your mat is a yoga mat (sticky mat). Some exercise mats are not suitable for yoga.
Please arrive a few minutes early for every class.
We do start and end on the scheduled time and it is disruptive to the class if someone arrives late or leaves early.
All cell phones should be turned off when in class. If you are expecting an emergency call you may keep your phone on vibrate but please leave the room when you answer and talk!
Illness and Injury.
Use common sense about coming to class if you are sick. Do not come if you think you might be contagious – we will be sharing everything from the air to props. Please tell the instructor if there are any injuries or illnesses that she or he should be aware of before class. Remember yoga is about self-care – and this may mean taking a break to take care of you.
Yoga is not a competition! You are the best judge of how deeply to work in a pose. If you need help modifying a pose please ask. We are here to help you make this a positive yoga experience.
