Class sizes in yoga instruction can range from one-on-one instruction to large groups of people all practicing at once. Regardless of your class size, there are a few things you can do to be respectful of other practitioners. > Approach the class in as calm a state as you can. Agitation and stress will affect other class members. > Avoid wearing perfumes or colognes. > When possible, give yourself and others as much space to work in. > Show up early and get in the right mindset -- don't rush into class late or frazzled > If you don't know what the teacher is talking about -- gesture to them silently so they can come over and help you > If you have to leave do it quietly When everyone works together, the true effects of yoga are more readily attained.
