Part of the path of Yoga is about respecting others and our environment, learning to have compassion for all beings, please follow these simple steps.

- Please do not wear strong perfume

Honouring Your Teachers
- All Yoga teachers are also yoga practitioners, they also have their own teachers
- It is an ongoing training, most teachers devote their whole lives to learning and sharing the wisdom of the teachings of this ancient practise.
- Yoga is evolving there is no right or wrong way to practise. There is safe and unsafe, if a teacher comes to gently assist you into a different position, it’s not too make you look better in the pose but to make you more comfortable and maybe to stop you from injuring yourself.
- I humbly bow to to all my teachers past present and future. Namaste.
