We are a community of seasoned yogaholics, weekend warriors, yogi newbies, fitness fanatics, and just about any other kind of yoga lover you can think of. We are here to strengthen, empower, and guide you through your adventures in yoga. So whether you are looking for a new class to add to your workout regimen, a way to work up a sweat on your lunch hour, or just wanting to stretch out at the end of a long day, Studio is here for all of your yoga needs.
Be Mindful of Time
We get it: sometimes life can be hectic. But scurrying into class, slamming your mat down, and trying to get settled in is stressful for you and your fellow yogis. Give yourself 10-15 minutes before class starts to get your spot set-up, settle in, and bask in the breathtaking mountain views from Studio: this will make your yoga experience much more enjoyable.
Wear the Right Clothes
By right, we mean wear comfortable clothes that allow you to move freely but will not move when you are in various positions. We will get our sweat on, so moisture wicking material is recommended. Please bring your mat, yoga towel and water bottle. We have a Brita Hyrdration Station if you need to fill up before or after class. We also have mats and yoga towels for rent if needed. Remember, no shoes.
Go Easy on the Perfume
Yoga practice in a community space requires that we avoid wearing heavy colognes or perfume. It also requires that we use deodorant, as we will be testing its effectiveness! You breathe deep breaths in yoga, and are in close proximity of others. These lovely smells will come across very strongly during the session, so observe good general hygiene, and save the perfume for your post-yoga after-shower celebration.
Be Aware of Your Space
Because our classes are so wonderful, sometimes Studio can get a little snug. Be conscious of your fellow yogis and mind your steps so that you don’t end up on your neighbors mat. Speaking of being neighborly, if the class is a bit full, be efficient with your space and make room for your fellow classmates.
Turn Down the Volume
Don’t get us wrong, we love to chit-chat, especially with our members! But it can be a bit distracting when someone comes into class gabbing about how much they love Studio at The Alaska Club when others are trying to meditate or relax. When you enter Studio briefly greet your friends, settle into your mat, and relax until class starts.
Check Your Distractions at the Door
Please keep distractions (cell phone, conversations, today’s to-do list) outside Studio. They will be waiting for you when class is done. If you must have your cell phone, please keep it on silent.
Our Studio is pristine, not only in atmosphere, but also in attitude, and we would like to keep it that way. Please clean up all of your belongings at the end of each class, and if you really got your sweat on, there are spray bottles and towels to clean your area. If you borrowed a mat or anything else from Studio, please be sure to wipe it down and return it to the front desk.
