Respecting Our Sacred Space
Welcome new students. So far in 2014 there have been over 1,000 new faces at Being Yoga to experience what we have to offer. Most of you probably came for some of these reasons: a good workout, increase flexibility, lose weight, or toning muscles. You will definitely achieve those goals with a regular practice at Being Yoga. We hope that you will also experience the other benefits of yoga practice, benefits that can transform your LIFE!! To experience the deeper benefits of the practice starts with treating the studio as a sacred space that you come to in order to refresh yourself and allow others to be refreshed. First off, you should try to arrive to your class at least 10 minutes before the start of the class to meditate, rest, or warm-up stretching. This is a time to nurture peace and quiet and to honor the peace and quiet of the others in the room. This will give you time to let go of the stresses of the day and to get the most out of the class. At the end of class, there is a 10 minute period before the students of the next class enter the studio. This time should be used for quiet contemplation as well. When it is time for you to leave, please do so quietly so the people who are still in the room will not be disturbed.
For those of you who are not new to Being Yoga, when you start to make friends at the studio it can become a social occasion when you come for a class. Please be mindful of keeping the yoga room a quiet place where people can meditate before and after class.
Our goal is your well-being.
