Yoga Etiquette

House Policies

Bikram Yoga Memphis is open 30 minutes before and after each class.

CLASS STARTS ON TIME: Please respect your practice and your fellow yogis by being on time. Late comers will not be admitted.

No cell phone use is allowed in our facility.  Please finish your conversation before entering.

A large towel, yoga mat and bottle of water are required for each class.  These items may be purchased/rented in the lobby.

Upon entering, please sign-in legibly at the front desk before each class.  Wait patiently until it is your turn.  We will let you know when you are fully signed in.

Classroom Policies

Please wait until all students from the previous class have left the room before entering (Check with the front desk on when to enter).

Leave all of your personal belongings in the Locker Rooms (we have lockers) including your shoes, socks, cell phones and watches.  Only bring your mat, towel and water into the classroom.

Please refrain from entering or leaving class during postures.  If you must leave the room in an emergency, please wait for the instructor to help you out and let you back in.

No sugared drinks (Vitamin Water/Gatorade), carbonated beverages or glass bottles allowed in the classroom.

In consideration of others, please keep your body and feet clean before entering the classroom and refrain from wearing perfume, cologne or strong scents.

Out of respect for your classmates, please refrain from talking or whispering in the classroom at all times.
Be mindful your neighbor’s space and visibility in the mirror.

Locker Room Policies

Please maintain tidiness while using the Locker Rooms and clean up after yourself as you use the showers, toilets and sinks.

Please place trash in the silver trash cans under the sink – only towels in the white bins and plastic water bottles in the blue recycling containers.

Please keep your showers to less than 2 minutes.

Remember, we all share this space and it is your studio.  Please help to keep it clean and be respectful of others.

Late Arrivals

New Students must arrive at least 10 – 15 minutes before class.  If you are late, you will not be admitted to class.

We sometimes do not have a staff member available at the front desk while class is in session, so for security reasons we lock the door when class begins. There is no late admittance.

Once class has begun and the front door is locked, no students will be admitted.

Lost or Stolen Items

Bikram Yoga Memphis is not responsible for lost or stolen property.  All items found will be held in our lost and found until the end of each month then either discarded or donated to Goodwill.
