Etiquette: Mindfulness On The Mat

Yoga is more than just a physical practice. It is a process of understanding how our actions not only affect ourselves, but those around us. A state of awareness and mindfulness. Please respect the following requests to help make everyone’s experience more pleasurable.

Before Class
Stop at the front desk and check-in/pay before continuing on to take off shoes and settle into class. If this is your first visit, please arrive at least 10 minutes before class. Leave your shoes and coat in the designated cubbies and areas outside the studio. NO shoes in the hallway or studio.


Late Arrivals/Early Departures
If you arrive late or need to leave early, please store all your belongings in the cubbies provided in the lobby area. Do NOT use the cubbies in the studio. If you need to leave early, please do so before we get into savasana. Make it a part of your practice to arrive early and stay for the entire class. No entrance into class will be allowed 5 minutes after start time.

Housekeeping
Please use the markers on the floor to line up your mat. Do not move your mat once class has started. The markers guarantee plenty of room for everyone and allows the teacher to move around more efficiently. Leave all personal belongings in the cubbies provided. Mat, towel and water should be the only items in the studio space. Water ONLY, no open containers or coffee

No Cell Phones In The Studio
If you have an emergency situation ONLY, please check with the instructor first as to the policy and etiquette about bringing a phone into class. Otherwise please turn your phone off and store in the cubbies. The instructor will request that you put your phone away if not cleared with him/her before class.

Respect Your Neighbor
There is a direct correlation between your actions on the mat and the experience of those around you. No talking during class and keep it to a minimum and lower before and after class. You came for the energy of a group practice, please respect the flow and do not do your own thing.

Class Descriptions
POWER:  Buddhi Mat’s signature class is a challenging and dynamic breath guided style of heated yoga. The room is kept at approximately 90° for this powerful combination of strength, flexibility, stamina and focus. With attention on breath, presence, alignment and working from the core the sequencing is specifically designed to help create a balanced body and mind. Our Power classes start with Sun Salutations to heat the body. Followed by standing and balancing poses that we hold to build strength and endurance before we take it to the floor for abdominal work and backbending. The class is completed with some deep, opening poses that after all the heat and strength building allows for greater release and surrender.

This sweat drenching yoga practice is designed for all levels and accessible to most. No yoga experience is necessary, just a desire to be in the process. Students will be encouraged to work at their own personal level. Beginners will be given modifications, while more seasoned yogis will be guided on how take it to the next level. (90°) All Levels.

POWER BASICS:  Follows the same format as our Power class at a slower pace. This allows for more focus on basic alignment and techniques that help build a solid foundation for the physical practice and a greater understanding of the process. This is great for beginners and experienced yogis interested in fine tuning their practice. Ujjayi breathing, working from the core, sun salutations and the basic Power yoga poses are taught. (90°) All Levels.

HOT, DEEP  & SLOW:  Get ready to slow down and open up. If you thought “slow” meant easy, get ready to be proven wrong! Class begins with a flowing, breath guided practice. Pace is slowed down by bringing focus on controlling the breath and longer holds. This slower pace requires presence and guides student into learning how to get in to and out of a pose with awareness. Floor poses are held longer, which allows for deeper release, with special attention given to the hips, hamstrings, quads and groin. (90°) All Levels.

POWER HOUR:  A 60-minute version of our Power class when you do not have time for a full length practice. Should be used as a supplement to the 75-90 minute classes. Because experiencing a full length practice is important and pace is a bit faster, not recommended for new yogis! (90°) All Levels.

Specialty Classes

RESTORATIVE:  Calm the nervous system, cool the brain, rest the senses. Restorative yoga is a practice of passive poses where your body is fully supported and held by props such as bolsters, blankets and blocks. It helps restore and renew your body and mind on every level. It is a deeply healing practice that helps release and reduce stress and can be beneficial for those who experience chronic pain or illness. Restorative yoga is designed for all levels. No yoga experience is necessary.

FLYING AND FLOATING: One of the greatest challenges in a power vinyasa class is learning the art of "flight". Jump backs. Jump throughs. Arm balances. Inversions. Learn to improve on all of these by understanding the "physics of flight". You will be taught to work from the ground up utilizing key alignment principles and core awareness. When you work from the core, inversions become lighter and you learn to float into arm balances, fly effortlessly into handstand and jump back to chaturanga without a sound!. This class is offered once a month. There will be a different focus each month. As well as, reinforcement of the key concepts. Begin to let go of your fear and empower yourself! (90°) All Levels. Offered once a month.

POWER YOGA 101: New to Power Yoga? Or maybe just interested in fine tuning your current practice? Join Kiernan and learn how to cultivate depth and ease in your practice. The techniques taught will help you build confidence and lay a solid foundation for your power yoga practice. This class is offered once a month. You will learn the 5 elements that a Power Yoga practice is built upon. Ujjayi breathing, working from the core and a break down of the poses of the sun salutations will be covered. Come learn how to be comfortable in the physical process, while applying the mental practice - Buddhi Power Yoga is not about creating a perfect pose, but about finding YOUR perfect pose! No experience necessary! (90°) All Levels. Offered once a month on Sunday.

MEDITATION: Allowing your mind to become your ally. This one hour meditation class explores why it's important to mediate, in some way or form, everyday. Use meditation as a gateway to understanding yourself, the people you love, and the world around you. Gather your quiet moments in an hour of stillness, reflection and appreciation as you hopefully leave the workshop calmer, more centered and content with all that you are. Learn how to take that stillness into your busy world. There will be limited moving poses, as sedentary postures are explored in meditation. . All levels welcome!
