Breathe in, chill out. It’s just yoga.
Technically, it’s also just you, the mat and the teacher. We like nothing more than introducing you to the practice in a welcoming environment. Hence the house rules.
Arrive early, not on time. Give yourself time to become acquainted with the space, stash your bag and phone aside, and be completely present in the practice. While you’re at it, don’t take yourself too seriously. Try something new, fall on your face, and have a laugh. More importantly, give yourself credit for pushing yourself.
And remember, silence is golden.
