Bikram Yoga Studio Etiquette

Keep smiling!

It's only yoga after all and there's always tomorrow!

Our aim is to provide everyone with the best possible opportunity to enjoy their yoga practice.
Help us to help you by observing the following:


  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day. Hydration is very important.

  • For most, it is best not to eat, take medications or drink caffeine at least 2 hours before class.

  • Sign in at reception before class - even if you booked online or we know you by name!

  • Let the teacher know of any injuries or concerns you have before the start of class.

  • Leave your footwear in the cubbyholes.

  • Have clean feet.

  • Be perfume free.

  • Turn off or mute your cell phone.

  • Ask questions about the practice [before or after] class.


  • Please only bring your mat, towel, water bottle into the yoga room. All other personal items [including cell phones] should be left in reception or the changing room.

  • Make sure the middle of your mat is placed on a line on the floor. Avoid the front row until you are really familiar with the postures as you lead the class energy.

  • Refrain from talking in the yoga room.

  • Try to stay in the room. This is really important. The heat can be a big challenge for a lot of people, especially at the beginning of their practice. Don't run away from it. Allow your body to acclimate to the heat. This might mean not pushing yourself too hard or sitting out a few postures. You have a lifetime of yoga ahead of you, so don't try and squeeze all your ambition into one class. Pace yourself and you will do just fine! If you have to leave, try not to disturb your fellow yogis.

  • The teacher will indicate the best points during class for everyone to take water breaks. Otherwise, please do so in-between postures as to not disturb your fellow practitioners.

  • Please refrain from wiping away your sweat throughout the class. This is your body's way of helping to keep you cool. And the more you wipe, the more you will sweat!

  • Refrain eating or chewing gum.

  • Practice stillness between postures, breathing in and out through the nose.

  • Listen to your teachers. They will be able to correct your postures, guide your thinking and keep you positioned on the right part of your mat for your practice.

  • Follow the class sequencing to the best of your ability. Please do not substitute postures unless instructed as a modification by the teacher. If there are postures you like that are not a part of the series/class, please take the time before or after class to work on your personal practice.

  • Focus on yourself in the mirror.

  • When lying down, make sure your head is at the top of your mat with your feet facing the back wall.

  • Most importantly, remember to smile! After all, it's only yoga - and it looks good to smile. When you look good, you feel good!


  • Observe silence at the end of class.

  • This is a good time to work on postures not practiced in class.

  • Please leave the room quietly.

  • Place rented mats and towels in the baskets outside the room.

  • If you bring your own mat, please keep it clean and smelling good. We have mat spray for you to use. Allow the mat to dry before rolling up. If you have any questions about mat care and cleaning, please ask.

  • Enjoy the peace and energy you've created from class.

  • Come back tomorrow - We look forward to seeing you!
