These guidelines are meant to help everyone have a peaceful, clean and smoothly-run class experience! If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me ~ I am here to help!
Shorts, Leggings, Tank Tops, T-shirts work fine. Clothing should not be so tight that it is restrictive and not so baggy that it gets in the way!
Yoga is a barefoot practice and taking your shoes off as soon as you enter will help keep the studio cleaner (there’s that Sauca again!). There are cubbies, hooks and shelves where you can store your shoes and any personal belongings.
Certified Iyengar Yoga Teachers are trained to accommodate a wide variety of issues in the context of every yoga class and level, however, we cannot read your mind (yet!). Please let the teacher know of any new injuries or changes in any conditions.
If you are having a bad period, please stay home and rest. (Talk to me afterwards about a home practice to help alleviate menstrual complaints)
If you feel so-so, come to class and let me know. I will help you with a supported, menstruation-specific practice.
If you feel fine, come to class and please still let me know at the beginning of class.
For safety reasons, women on their moon cycle (even if you feel great!) should not practice strenuous poses, such as arm balances and also should not practice twists or inversions. Your teacher needs to know you are on your moon cycle at the beginning of class to help support you with an appropriate practice.
Please treat your yoga teacher as part of your health care team. For your safety during first trimester (and beyond) it is important that you share this information as soon as possible — your confidentiality will be respected.
