At Tranquility Yoga we want everyone to feel welcome and comfortable. Here are some guidelines that will assist you in getting the most from your experience:

Arrive on time: This will help optimize your yoga experience. Every class begins and ends with quiet time, and late arrivals can be disruptive to you and other students. If you do arrive late, please enter as quietly as possible. If you need to leave early, please inform the teacher at the beginning of class. If you can arrive a few minutes early to relax, you will get even more from your class experience.

Clothing: Wear layers of loose, comfortable clothing – anything that will not restrict your movement is fine. The studio temperature is kept at 70 - 72o, and you will be lying still at the beginning and end of class. Please take your shoes off before entering the studio (we have a shoe rack in the hallway). In sandal weather you may want to bring along a pair of socks.

What to bring: Please bring a large beach towel to lie on (we do not use yoga mats). If you are coming regularly to class, you may leave your towel in the closet in the back of the studio. Please label your towel. Do not use other people’s towels or put towels in the laundry hamper.

Food/drinks: We recommend that you do not eat a heavy meal before coming to class. If you need to eat before class, eat a small snack. You may also bring a closed water bottle to class with you, although you may not need it during class, as this yoga is slow and not an athletic workout.

Perfume: Please refrain from wearing any perfume or other heavy scents to class. This includes scented body lotions, hairspray, and after-shave products. These scents may trigger allergic reactions in other students and teachers.

Pets and pet hair: Some students are allergic to pets, especially pet hair. If you have pets at home, please try to limit the amount of pet hair on your clothing when coming to class.

Jewelry: Please remove any heavy bracelets or necklaces prior to class. This can interfere with your ability to do poses, and make it difficult for your teacher to do adjustments.

Drugs/alcohol: Please refrain from using any non-therapeutic drugs or alcohol right before class. If you have a medical condition that requires the use of an inhaler, glucose tablets or nitroglycerin, please bring these with you and inform your teacher at your first class.

Pagers/Cell phones: Please turn these off before entering the studio. Even a cell phone on “vibrate” can disrupt a class. If you need to have your phone with you for emergency reasons, please put it on vibrate and inform the teacher at the beginning of class.

Thank you for reading and following these guidelines. Our goal is to provide a comfortable environment for our students. Your comments and suggestions are always welcome and appreciated.

What People Say...

  • My life has truly been transformed thanks to the Svaroopa Yoga teachings your studio offers. And Sarah is an amazing gift to us both! We are blessed to have her in our lives. I'm smiling from the inside out, and my heart is singing...:-) LM
  • The instructors exude "calm" and you immediately feel relaxed and looked-after!
  • Becky, I enjoyed the class. Definitely a different form, more relaxing. I felt like I could breath better, and I went in with a throbbing sacrum and walked out with release of that area! I enjoyed the benefit of the 'quieting' of the mind, the rest of my day was at ease, I felt more in the present rather than scattered all over with a million thoughts running through my head. AP
  • BTW, I really love the classes! It's promoting so much peace and awareness. I actually experience stillness like I have never before. It's the best gift really. SR
  • I am very grateful for the space you have created and the wonderful blessings of Svaroopa Yoga! KH
  • ...meant to tell you that the individual attention you gave on Friday was very helpful. I am often not sure how the poses are supposed to feel, and if a particular tension is a sign of stretching or moving in a good way, or a sign of being out of alignment, etc. A lot is still unknown. So the checking is helpful – also the neck alignment you did was very good. DL
  • Thank you! Svaroopa Yoga is such a beautiful part of my life. Little did I ever dream accepting your 'openhouse' invitation 5 years ago would give me such appreciation of flexibility and grace of the body. If I should have pain I know how to release it! I am ever so thankful our paths crossed! G.N.  
  • I got a lot of the class. During the final Shavasana, I explored the edge between conscious and unconsciousness. I felt like I was exploring. But exploring what? I finally settled on time. I was drifting back and forth through time! Feeling the timelessness of my Self. Pretty Amazing stuff, this yoga! ML
  • I adored your yoga studio and the class that I took last Thursday morning. I hope to attend again and become a regular student; it seemed incredibly restorative and relaxing which is what I was looking for in a yoga class! Thank you for adding me to your email list and I hope to be back to Tranquility Yoga this week. Happy holidays, K.V.
  • I am excited to be doing yoga! I am amazed at how good I felt after just one class..... Looking forward to the next class. B.O.
