Studio Etiquette

Please keep the following in mind as you arrive.

  • One of the benefits of practicing yoga is an increase in awareness. As we practice, we are especially in tune with our sense of smell, we are more aware of odors, fragrances, and smoke. Please consider practicing in clean clothing that is void of the smell of fried foods, perfumes, colognes, and smoke.

  • Wear comfortable stretchy clothing. Layers are good as you warm the body and cool it down.

  • Shoes are removed in the reception area outside the yoga studio and placed in the cubbies. Socks may be worn in the studio; however, it is recommended to practice in bare feet.

  • Please silence your phone and leave your phone and personal belongings in a cubby in the reception area. Doors are locked during each class.

How early should I arrive before the scheduled class starts?

  • If this is your first time at Blue Owl Yoga, we encourage you to arrive 15 minutes early to meet the instructor and to fill out a waiver.

  • In general, please arrive a few minutes early to class so you can get set up and use the restroom. For security purposes, the doors are locked when the class begins.

What do I need to know prior to any Yoga class?

Am I wearing deodorant?

Please apply an unscented deodorant. Do not wear perfume or scented lotions.


Is my yoga mat clean?

Your mat can be a haven for bacteria so it should be thoroughly cleaned after each use. Sometimes your mat can smell worse than anything else. If you use one of ours, please clean it before and after practice.


Am I healthy?

Please do not come to class if you are unwell. While yoga may help flush out toxins, keep in mind others are breathing deeply along with you. This is not an appropriate environment to be in if you are in an infectious or contagious condition.

Please keep this information in mind when attending all of our Blue Owl Yoga classes. Practicing yoga has many wonderful effects on the body and mind. When we practice being more aware of our breath and our bodies, our other senses become heightened as well. Our goal at Blue Owl Yoga is to provide a safe space for our community to move together, connect and find their path on their yoga journey. We appreciate your consideration!
