1. We always start the session with the invocation. The instructor chants and you
repeat. The invocation is not a prayer. It helps calm the mind and focus on the
Yoga we are about to do. However, if you are not comfortable saying it, please sit
as directed and silently focus on your breathing.
2. Make an effort to remember the name of the asana as this will help you in linking
the movement, action and later, inner adjustment.
3. Please wear comfortable clothing that does not hamper movement. T-shirt and
tights/cycling shorts for women and T-shirt and above-knee shorts for men is
4. Please finish your heavy meal or snack at least 2 hours before your Yoga session
to avoid nausea, vomiting and headache or plain heaviness. (A light beverage 30
minutes earlier is okay) You can eat 1 hour after the practice.
5. Please do not come straight from another physical exercise, e.g. swimming,
gymming, tennis, etc. This will tire your more and you may not be able to hold
your asana long or correctly.
6. Do not hold your breath in any asana. Always breathe through your nose. Keep
your mouth closed.
7. Keep your eyes open unless otherwise directed
8. You cannot drink water during class, if you feel uncomfortably thirsty, please
inform your instructor immediately.
9. Inform the instructor at the beginning of class if you have any aches, pains,
sprains or any other health issue.
