Welcome to Metta Wave! Here's a Guide to our Studio
Our studio is your studio. The word yoga means to connect & bind. Metta Wave is a space that reflects our deep passion for the practice of yoga and is intended as place of peace and community. Please feel welcome to relax in reception before & after class. Remember there is complimentary tea :)
MW Yoga Studio Etiquette
Please Advise your Teachers of Any Injuries or Medical Conditions Which May Affect your Practice Today
This is very much appreciated so we can assist you with helpful modifications and offer you a safe & enriching practice. Thank you.
Please Arrive a Little Early for Class
We recommend arriving 15-5mins prior to the beginning of the program if possible. This way you will have time to sign in, hang up your belongings, set up your mat & props and take some time to relax before class begins.
Upon Arrival Please Sign In with the Instructor at the Desk
If this is your first ever visit to our little studio - welcome! Please check in with the instructor at the front desk to complete our simple new client form & register for your class. We offer a new student special, so if you attend your first class on a drop-in basis, you will receive your second class for free! The instructor will give you a complimentary pass to hold on to for your second class.
Please Leave your Shoes on the Front Mat & Hang Up Any Coats, Bags or Keys in the Hallway
During classes the door will be locked and your belongings will be very safe. It is not necessary to bring purses or bags into the practice room, but it's sometimes nice to keep socks & sweaters nearby.
Regarding Yoga Mats
Clients are welcome to bring their own mat or use one of ours. As you enter the studio, the barrel in reception offers clean mats. After practice, you can leave our mats in the silver bin inside the studio & we will give it a good cleaning. You are also welcome to use our mat cleaner, on your personal mat or studio mat if you like. This is not expected of students, but if you do clean your studio mat you can pop it back in the front barrel. Face cloths & towels are also available for hot yoga.
Water is Available at the Studio or Bring Your Own Bottle
Mason jars are available in the studio for hydrating during hot yoga! Tea is also always available.
While in the Studio, Please Preserve the Calm Atmosphere for your Fellow Yogis
This includes refraining from loud speech & please turn off those pesky cell phones! Thank you.
Fragrance in the Studio
Please be mindful not to wear very strong fragrances to class out of respect for fellow clients who may have sensitivities, especially given yoga's emphasis on breath awareness! We do use some essential oils in our homemade mat cleaner & for hot yoga cooling cloths but are mindful that the fragrances are not overwhelming.
Yoga is Nicest on an Empty Stomach!
Take our word & eat lightly before practice :)
Please never hesitate with any questions! We would love to support you however we can!
