Yoga Etiquette

Yoga has been around for thousands of years. It's been practiced in spiritual settings as a form of meditation, incorporated into gym classes, done on mountain sides and even in the space of one's own home. In recent years, yoga has become a favorite pastime in Middletown, but you don't need to develop a yogi lifestyle to enjoy the many benefits of the practice. For those who are new to this spiritual and physical practice, there are several things you should know about your first yoga class at Serenity Yoga.

Experience Your First Yoga Class

The most important thing you need to know about a yoga class at Serenity Yoga is that you are welcome. As a rule, yoga is a practice that is both inclusive and inviting, and this is certainly the case at your Middletown studio. As you enter your first class, expect classmates to say hello and expect your instructor to welcome you with open arms.

This positive attitude should relieve some of the anxiety around your first Middletown yoga class, but as the class progresses there are a few things you can do to return the courtesy and help to encourage the same positive atmosphere:

  • The studio is open 15 minutes prior to class. Please check in with the instructor and put your stuff in our cubbies. The door is locked once class starts.
  • Leave your cell phone off or on silent and in another room. Yoga is a serene and spiritual practice. Don't bring the outside world in with you. Give others in your Serenity Yoga class the chance at relaxation and meditation they are seeking.
  • Wear something comfortable and appropriate.  Wear something that you can move and bend in freely and that won't make a lot of noise as you shift from one pose to another.
  • No chatting. In some fitness classes, giggling in the back of the class with a friend is totally fine. In yoga, that isn't the case. In addition to being a form of fitness it is a method of stress management. Give others in the class the chance to relax and engage in meditation during the course.
  • If you are coming into one of our heated classes please make sure you drink plenty of water.  It takes someone at least three times to get use to the heat. 

If at any point you are feeling overwhelmed, take a moment to yourself and enter a simple pose, like child's pose. This will give you a chance to relax your muscles and reset your mind so you can start again and enjoy the spiritual and physical benefits of the practice.  

We are happy you are here!

Testimonials

I've been coming to Serenity Yoga studio in Middletown for about 5 weeks and I can't speak more highly of it. After just my first class, I was hooked and try to make at least one class a day if my schedule allows. They provide a great workout, but it is so much more than physical. After only a month, I feel more in tune to myself, my emotions, and feel more love for everyone I meet in my day. Thank you to everyone at Serenity Yoga! Maura Tunney
