“If we practice the science of yoga, which is useful to the entire human community and which yields happiness both here and hereafter—if we practice without fail, we will then attain physical, mental, and spiritual happiness, and our minds will flood towards the Self.” — Sri K. Pattabhi Jois of Mysore, India.


Mysore Etiquette
We intend to create a space where students can focus entirely upon their practice, without distraction.  With this in mind, we ask all practitioners to maintain a quality of mindfulness while in the space.  When the beauty, cleanliness and solitude of the space is honored, Mysore practice is a truly sacred experience. Here’s a list of what we consider to be Mysore etiquette:
 
  • Please do not eat for at least 2 hours prior to practice and do not drink water during class.
  • In addition to bringing a yoga rug/and or towel for your own use, please bring a towel that the teacher can use for your adjustments.
  • Please turn off your cell phones.
  • Please honor the silence of the room
  • Please shower before  class
  • Please wear clean clothing.
  • Please ensure that your mat and towels are clean and odor-free
  • Please refrain from wearing any perfumes or scented body products or clothing detergents.
  • If you sweat  a lot , please be sure to bring extra towels to mop up your sweat before you leave.
