PITAIYO Class Etiquette

Do and Do Not:

  • Do not eat a big meal prior to class. Eat a light meal or snack one-two hours prior to class.
  • Do not drink too much water during class.
  • Do not wear socks or shoes during class. You will not have a tactile grip on your mat.
  • Do not wear excessive perfumes or colognes.
  • Do tell the instructor prior to class if you have injuries that will require modification.
  • Do ask for help if you need it.
  • Do look around for guidance, but listen to your own body.
  • Do not self judge. There will be advanced students in class do not compare yourself to them, pitaiyo is a judgment free zone, we welcome all levels.
  • Do hydrate throughout the day prior to class.
  • Do silence your cell phone.
  • Do not talk to others during the pitaiyo workout, this is everyone’s time to tune out and zone in, to their self.
  • Do place your mat in the back of the class if you are new.
  • Do check (with the location) to see if mats are provided.

Other Tips:

  • Refrain from excess lotion. Lotions will make you slip on the mat.
  • Remember the positive thought that ended class. Implement that positive affirmation into your life and share it with as many people as possible.
  • Plan your week. How many classes will you be attending?
  • Do not make up excuses, keep coming, your body, mind, spirit and others will thank you. Pitaiyo is that beneficial.

  • Have fun and be yourself.
