Frequently Asked Questions

Code of Conduct

Make sure you sign in at reception before each class.

Hygiene and clothes: Please use appropriate clean attire and wear a top for hygiene reasons. It is also more comfortable for teachers to give you a good assist if you have a shirt on.

If you use our studio’s red mat, please clean it with the cleaning products provided in the room after you use it. If the mat is very wet, let it on the floor to dry. We encourage you to bring your own mat if you practice with us regularly.

Punctuality: With respect to your practice and concentration of other practitioners in the room try to be on time. If it so happened that you are late and arrive during dharma talk or chanting please enter and sit down, and only place your mat once asana part of the class begins.

Props: feel free to use all the props and please place them back neatly after the practice where you found them.

Lost Items: If you leave something behind, please check in the baskets in the changing rooms. In the end of each month, all the items will be removed and disposed of. If you leave something behind in the last days of the month, please let us know so we can keep your item until you pick it up. Please don’t leave your personal items to store in the changing rooms.

First time in yoga?

It’s a good idea to start with Basic class, which is specially designed for beginners. Wear comfortable clothes that allow for a free range of movement, barefeet. If you have a yoga mat, bring it along, otherwise you can borrow one of studio’s (if so, please let us know in advance by email to info@jivamuktiyogalisbon.com)

Can I eat and drink before the practice?

We recommend not eating for a minimum of 2 hours before practice. Drinking is fine, but refrain drinking during the practice.

Can I do yoga if I'm injured or sick?

Please consult your doctor or health physician in relation to any injuries. However if you are sick, please stay at home to prevent contamination.

What if my knowledge of english is not poor? Can I still come?
