Class Guidelines

1. Preparation is Key:

  • Set Up Your Space: Find a quiet, comfortable spot where you can move freely and focus on your class without interruptions.
  • Equipment: Ensure you have any necessary equipment ready before the class begins, such as yoga mats, cushions, or any other recommended items.
  • Tech Check: Test your internet connection, audio, and video setup ahead of time to avoid any technical issues during the class. All classes taught via Zoom.

2. Be Punctual:

  • Log In Early: Try to log in a few minutes early to settle in, check your setup once more, and be ready when the class starts.
  • Respect Time: Joining late can be disruptive; ensure you’re punctual to respect the instructor's time and your fellow participants.

3. Engagement and Interaction:

  • For the best experience, please have your camera and microphone on at the beginning and throughout the class. Introduce yourself and participate actively. Engaging with the class fully, following the instructor's guidance, and joining in discussions or activities will enhance your connection with the community and help you get the most out of each session.

4. Mindfulness and Respect:

  • Respect Others: Be mindful of your classmates' experiences. Keep your microphone muted when not speaking to minimize background noise.
  • Feedback Positively: Constructive feedback is welcome; it helps us grow. Share your thoughts respectfully and positively.

5. Health and Safety:

  • Listen to Your Body: Pay attention to your body’s limits. Do not push yourself too hard and take breaks when needed.
  • Medical Concerns: Inform the instructor ahead of time if you have any health issues or concerns that they should be aware of.

6. Privacy and Confidentiality:

  • Respect Privacy: Do not record or take screenshots of the class without explicit permission from the instructor and other participants.
  • Personal Information: Be cautious when sharing personal information within the class setting.
