Class Etiquette

Class Etiquette

– The classes are offered by a variety of instructors. Each teacher brings their own unique style and expression of both the physical and spiritual aspects of the asana practice. Each student is encouraged to always work at their own pace and to choose classes that best suit their needs/abilities.

Please do not wear perfume when coming to the yoga studio. Even if your perfume is “natural” or made from essential oils – please refrain from applying before yoga class.

Essential oils are used in some classes to purify the space and deepen your state of calm and relaxation. Please let us know if that will be a problem for you.

Please arrive to class 10-15 minutes early to give yourself time to align your attitude in preparation for the class and to settle in. Please note: the studio door is locked until 15 min. prior to class or if there is another class before yours. Please respect others need for calm and privacy.

– Please try to eat 2 hrs before your practice. Coming to class with a full stomach will be very uncomfortable for you. It is best to eat lightly before class, and more after class.

Hydrate before your yoga class with at least one full glass of water.

– The studio is kept very warm and is not air conditioned in the summer. This is to help you sweat and purify and also to keep your muscles safe and warm. Dress accordingly. Layers are always a good idea.

"Dear Village Yogi,  Last month I started yoga, first time in my life. Did not know what to expect,or even what to take...! We had a very busy summer and moved 4 families in our family! Crazy! So my body started to complain, and 2 days before our move I could not move. My chiropractor who I called that day was on vacation...! So here I was..stuck..! I'm a person that believes that everything happens for a reason, so that week I was looking at my computer and there it was...a Groupon to try out yoga...for back problems..?. So here I went , skeptical, afraid, but after a couple classes I felt great, slept the whole night after...that's also a miracle..So I am planning to keep on going to class! Thanks Heather, you are awesome!"

"When life is a storm, Yoga is the calm. When life is peace, Yoga is the challenge. Yoga here - is everything I need. In all ways. Thank you Village Yogi. Great awakenings."

"When I finally got up enough nerve to go to yoga - my only regret is that I didn't do it years ago! I expected to develop physical strength but the unexpected gifts are the best ones. I have developed mental & emotional strength and a confidence I didn't know I was capable of. I am a kinder, more patient person in all aspects of my life. Things are clearer & I am more focused. I am better to people at home...and at work...and as an extra bonus I have lost 50 lbs! I know all of these changes are because of my yoga practice."

"Wow! Where do i even begin?? Walking into The Village Yogi has been a life changing experience. The first time I did yoga, I cried. It was then that I knew how important inviting yoga into my life was going to be. I have never looked back. I have become deeper in touch with myself...with The Universe. Thank you."

"Whether it was at the bottom floor of a library, in a church hall, or in this beautiful yoga studio that Heather has called "The Village Yogi", she has helped hundreds of people with her yoga teachings, the teachers she brings into her studio, plus the multitude of other special events that she offers all the time. It keeps me centered. It helps me be a more loving and compassionate person. Heather is endlessly giving and teaching for others....Thank God for this yoga studio!! She is continuously trying to instill goodness and love in others, and at the same time training you to have a more flexible and muscular body. It is the true meaning of Yoga that Heather teaches...this is not just a place to go to lose weight. How beautiful our little world is with Heather and The Village Yogi studio in it!!"

"Everytime I practice I am taken by surprise at how the teacher speaks her truth - which is my truth. Thank you eternally!"

"I noticed that my knee doesn't crack every time I bend it anymore!"

"I love coming here! It has turned into my favourite day of the week (Monday!). I feel much better about my week after yoga."
