Iyengar Yoga Class Triangle

PARKING

  • There are some car parking spaces available at Yoga House Orewa. On Mondays and Tuesdays, you are welcome to park in the 'Walnut Cottage Cafe' designated car parking spaces.

  • During busier times, there is extra free parking across the road at Arundel Reserve, Orewa Beach, and an underpass to safely cross the busy street. 

WHAT TO BRING?

  • Please bring your yoga mat, a warm layer during winter or cooler months and a water bottle. No other drinks or food in the studio, please.

WHO TO BRING?

  • No pets inside Yoga House please.

  • Min age to attend regular group class is age 16, please do not bring your child along to studio while you attend a session.

PHONES

  • We have a strict no-mobile use policy in the studio during classes. Please turn off your mobile phones in the studio. 

 

PUNCTUALITY

  • Please respect your fellow Yoga House members and their practice and arrive on time for class. Late arrivals disrupt both students and the teacher.

  • We prefer that you stay for the entire session, as savasana/cool down is where the real benefits take place; however, if you need to leave early, please let your instructor know before class starts.​

  • Studio doors open to students 15-10 mins before class begins. 

YOGA HOUSE BEST PRACTICES

  • Please do not walk on other people's mats.

  • To honour the energy and group dynamic, please do not perform a practice markedly different from the teacher's. Modifications are significant and welcome, but if you want to do your own thing, please do that at home.

  • Please tidy any props or equipment you use away neatly to look nice and tidy for incoming Yoga House students.

  • Please respect your teacher's time, boundaries and energy. If you need extra time with any of our instructors, personal 1:1 sessions are available. See the price list for further information.

  • Personal hygiene, please stay fresh and neutral. Avoid wearing strong after shaves and perfumes.
