New to the Studio
If you are new to Shakti. . .
Slow Vinyasa is suitable for anyone that has never been to Shakti, never experienced Vinyasa (flow style), never been on their mat or anyone that just wants to slow things down. It is a class that teaches you how to flow using sun salutations and breath to link postures together. A lot of movement is involved. If this is too much activity for you, Gentle Yoga is the next best option as it incorporates less movement/less flow.
|Please enter from Grant Street so you will be greeted by front desk reception.|
|Parking is available across the street in M&T lot or behind the building on Boyd St in Shakti’s lot.|
|Please take shoes off in lobby.|
|Please turn cell phones off when entering building.|
|Please sign a release form with email address on first visit.|
Please leave personal belongings in the changing rooms or take them with you into studio but clear them off to sides. Do not leave items next to your mat. This will afford the instructor more room to roam, the students more room to practice and less distractions for you.
|All props are available to you, including mats, just ask front desk reception as to were they are kept.|
|Please spray the community mat that you borrowed with mat cleaner located at the front of studio on the shelf when class is over.|
Mats are available for purchase at the front desk for $30. We recommend that you have your own mat once you practice regularly.
|Water is available in front lobby. We encourage you to bring your own bottle to cut down on waste.|
|Please no socks during practice. We move in bare feet.|
|Please wear comfortable clothes to stretch in. Layers are always best as you will grow warmer as class progresses.|
|10 class passes can be shared. They expire in three months. No exceptions.|
At Shakti we aspire to move from the “me” to the “we” upon entering the building. If arriving late please be sensitive to those trying to quiet their minds in class.
We consider the yoga practice to be on going. It is a process. There is nothing you need to already know when you come in. There is nothing to get right while you are here.
We hope that your yoga comes with you into your homes when you leave the studio, so that you may share it with others and then bring it back in with you when you return.
