Arrive 15 minutes early to class, allowing for time to register, sign-in, and prep. Latecomers will not be accepted — no exceptions.
Wear comfortable, lightweight clothing from natural fibres (if possible). Your body should be able to breathe through the clothing. Yoga is practiced bare foot to stimulate the vital nerve endings in your feet. Wearing socks can cause injuries. FitWithin has a fragrance free environment. Please refrain from wearing perfume. Phones + pagers should be turned off before entering the studio.
We recommend you have a personal yoga mat for hygienic reasons. Please bring re-usable water canisters (no plastic water bottles are permitted).
Yoga is best practiced on an empty stomach. We recommend you not eat 2-3 hours before a class. If you must eat, have a small snack such yogurt or an apple, etc.
Students are responsible for their own practice. Be conscious of overstretching and injuries. To avoid injuries or health problems, check with your doctor before starting yoga practice. Inform the teacher prior to class about any existing health conditions such as: back, neck or joint injuries, recent surgeries, high blood pressure, or pregnancy.
Drink lots of water after class. We also recommend bathing in (Epsom) sea salt or showering after to relax the muscles. After care is important for muscle recovery.
