Attending a class at Loving Kindness? Whether your first time or as a refresher, here is some guidance about the yoga space.

Honoring our yoga space: 
 “Happy. Loving. Kind: Guidelines”

Loving Kindness is an intimate & inviting space with a maximum capacity of about 24 students. We at  seek to cultivate a space to nurture self-respect & freedom. Freedom from what keeps us from knowing Happiness (with a capital “H”)…knowing that we don’t need to become happy but we are Happiness itself at our core.

“Happy. Loving. Kind: Guidelines”: Guidelines for a happy Loving Kindness Yoga School experience for everyone. Help us create an atmosphere abiding by the following:

  • to practice in alignment with the mission of Loving Kindness
  • to maintain a yoga space that ensures a safe yoga practice.
  • to cultivate an infinitely open atmosphere in an open, airy physical space
  • to feel & be open in our bodies, minds and hearts.

Please follow these guidelines for a happy Loving Kindness Yoga School experience for everyone!

    • Please remove shoes at the door and put them on the shoe racks. Your other items can go on the big shelves. After class please put your shoes on at the door, and avoid walking in the room with shoes on.
    • Please leave your cell phone in your car, but if you need to bring it in to the room, please make sure it is turned all the way off, not to vibrate.
    • As we have a small space to share, personal hygiene is important, so please come to class smelling clean and not wearing any strong scents.
    • Some classes may be snug, so if you accidentally touch your neighbor during the movement part of class, don’t recoil but also don’t linger.
    • Please dress at least somewhat modestly. Everybody please keep your shirts on.
    • Requested donation is $10-20. This request should not prevent anyone from coming, and we accept whatever is given, whether less or more than what is requested, in a spirit of gratitude. If you need to leave less than what is requested, and you have time or other skills that your teacher may be able to use and that you would be willing to share, please talk with your teacher about other ways to exchange energy.
    • Questions and comments from students can make for a vital, pertinent and interesting class, but please try to keep your comments on the topic of the day and if you have a question that is of more personal interest to you than of general interest to the class, please save it till after class, or maybe you will be able to get an answer yourself, in your quiet, focused time.
    • Also when making comments, remember that there are many different people with many different backgrounds and opinions, so endeavor to be respectful of all, as the teachers are also endeavoring to model.
    • The teachers at Loving Kindness are not saints, gurus, mind-readers, psychotherapists or group therapists, Self- or God-Realized Masters, but people on the Path of Life just like you, so if anything they say doesn’t work for you, please just let it go, and if any assists or wording doesn’t work for you, please take responsibility for your experience by lovingly letting your teacher know at the time or at least after class.
