Etiquette Reminders for 2018

Be mindful of the your punctuality
As instructors, we work hard to respect our clients’ schedules by starting and ending class on time. Arriving late can disrupt the focus of both participants and teachers. However, we do realize that trains run late and things happen. With this in mind, our studio policy is that if there is ample space in the room, you may enter in between postures up until the end of the second set of pranayama breathing (in a Bikram Method class) and within 7 minutes of start time in any of our other classes.  If the class is full and would require for people to re-adjust their mats, you may be asked to come for another class.  Please keep in mind that this is also for your own benefit.  If you arrive too late for class it can also be unsafe for you, as the rest of the class may be moving into postures/exercises that your body is not warmed up for yet.  

Leaving class early
We understand that there are times when you may need to leave class early, whether to jump in the shower to get ready for work or run off to a meeting.  If you know you need to leave class early, please let the instructor know before the class begins and try your best to set up near the door for easy exit.  We also highly recommend that you allow yourself 2 minutes of savasana before you leave.  This final relaxation is an important part of the class where your body is able to reap all the benefits of the class and we would hate for you to miss out!

Personal hygiene
At bodē nyc we sweat and breathe together in a heated room. Out of respect for each other, be mindful of your own odors. Wear clean yoga clothes, refrain from using heavy cologne, lotions or perfumes, keep your breath fresh, and feet and toenails clean and properly maintained. At the end of class, take a moment to wipe down any sweat from the floor around you.  If you are an extra heavy sweater, please rent an extra towel at the front desk or bring your own.  We provide large kulae yoga towels and shower towels for each client, but some people may need one more to make sure they leave their spot dry when leaving class.  Your fellow practitioners will be very thankful.

Respect each other’s space
Please do your best to place your mat in a neat row to make space for other yogis behind and in front of you. If you’re in a busy class, consider making room for others walking in. We have set capacity levels at each studio and we want to make sure there is room for everyone in a well spaced-out manner.  Be mindful about your belongings around your mat, especially your water bottle, making sure it is not blocking someone’s vision in the mirror when practicing floor postures/exercises.

Keep the Studio a Peaceful Place
Many people think of the studio as an escape from the hectic city we live in.  It’s a space for quiet and relaxation.  While we do allow talking in the studio before class begins, please keep it to a low volume for those wishing to relax and even meditate. Please keep all cell phones or any electronics in your locker.  In final relaxation at the end of classes, please avoid talking until you are outside of the studio space.  Fold your mat and towel up neatly to avoid sweat landing on other’s still in savasana and walk softly out of the room.  This might be the only time of the day that many people have silence and tranquility and we want them to enjoy it completely!

Other Etiquette Tips 

SHOES – Please remove your shoes when you arrive in the lobby and place them in the cubbies or shelves. We also have flip-flops at the front desk if you would like. a pair.

SICK – if you are not feeling well, take some time for your body to recover and avoid taking class. Not only does your body probably need the rest, but we want to avoid spreading anything to our fellow practitioners.

GUM – please avoid chewing gum in class. With inversions and other postures/exercises, it can be unsafe to have gum in your mouth.

March Sound Bath

Deep healing work comes through music and sound. Through the use of Tibetan sound healing sound baths move the brain into deeper Alpha and Theta brain wave frequencies, inducing meditative and peaceful states that allow for clarity of mind and intuition. A few benefits of sound healing are: Improved sleep; deep sense of tranquility; relieves stress, anxiety, depression and emotional pain.

We live in a world that doesn’t recognize the amazing power of stillness to heal. As a result, we are anxiety ridden, unbalanced, and stressed out. In this fast paced society, our central nervous systems are on constant overdrive, which can create mental, emotional and physical illness. We run too fast, too hard and for too long creating stress, anxiety and tension in our minds and bodies. When we take the time to gift ourselves with moments of stillness that is when are able to heal and when we heal we are able to receive and let joy and abundance flow freely.

Take Me Higher

Take Me Higher, an exploration of the non-physical aspects of yoga with Jerome Burdi 

This workshop will focus on the non-physical aspects of yoga such as pranayama, meditation, and kirtan. Through the use of these modalities the practitioner may connect to higher states of consciousness. These techniques have been used to harness the immense power we have inside each of us, allowing us to dissolve the boundaries we have built against becoming our true selves. 

Pranayama techniques help us to connect our heart and mind, otherwise known as our fourth and sixth chakras, allowing us to get in touch with our intuition and the deep compassion we have for all beings. Kirtan activates the fifth chakra, our center for expression, creative communication and faith. In a world that wants us to be anything but ourselves having the ability to tap into that place of expression cultivates devotion, which brings joy and harmony within ourselves and with our practice. 

When we tap into these higher states of being amazing life shifts occur. After we utilize the power of music and singing to activate our fifth chakra Jerome will guide practitioners into a yoga nidra meditation. Yoga nidra brings the body, mind, heart and spirit into that deep meditative place where healing may occur. It is said that one hour of yoga nidra is equal to a full night of sleep.
