Studio etiquette

“Mindfulness is about being fully awake in our lives. It is about perceiving the exquisite vividness of each moment. We also gain immediate access to our own powerful inner resources for insight, transformation, and healing.”  
Jon Kabat-Zinn

At One Yoga for All, we ask all Yoginis & Yogis to practice mindfulness, respect for themselves, others and the intimate space. 

 

Please reserve classes, events and workshops online.
One Yoga for All is an intimate studio, with limited space. By reserving online, your spot is guaranteed.

Please arrive at least five minutes to classes, events and workshops.
Leave your belongings at an available shelf.
Door is locked at start time. Please do not knock on door, as you will not be
let in.

Please remove shoes upon entering studio on rainbow rug.
Shoes are only allowed on the rainbow rug and by the chairs as you take off and put them back on, to enter and exit the studio.
Here's why we take them off:

  1. Yoga is traditionally practiced in bare feet to help us feel stability and connect directly with the ground or mat under our feet 
  2. Shoes track in dirt, making the floor unclean. By removing your shoes, it helps to provide a clean environment in which to practice
  3. The first of the five Niyamas, the moral virtues of Yoga that we yogis are called to practice, is Saucha, purity or cleanliness. External cleanliness refers to both the physical body and environment. Studies have shown that shoes can actually lead to transmitting disease and we want to remain both clean and healthy.
