Yoga Mat Etiquette, Trust, Submission, and a Winner!

Yoga Mat Etiquette and other fun stuff

(this is typically on a handout given to my Vessels of Clay Yoga Students)

1.     Yoga mats are rolled out gently, not plunked. . .=-)

2.     When walking through a yoga room, do not step on another person’s mat without first asking their permission. This is their “sacred” space where they take all of their intention, hard work, and let’s face it, sweaty foreheads. If a teacher comes by to make an adjustment, he or she will (hopefully) ask permission first if they have to step on your mat to make the adjustment.

3.     When finished with your mat, you can wipe them off with “specially made” yoga towelettes, or Clorox wipes designed to kill viruses, etc. Is especially good when the mat you have used is not your own!

4.     Folding of the yoga mat: especially if the yoga mat IS yours—fold the mat in half once, then roll mat up. This will ensure that the space where your own feet have been is enclosed, and the space which has been touching the floor (and all other things that have touched the floor) will not be rubbing against your mat where you have and will be touching your skin!

5.     Yoga mats can be washed in the washing machine and dried in the dryer—to a certain degree. Use woolite or another extremely gentle cleaner designed for delicates. Wash on cold in delicate cycle no longer than 15 minutes. (My delicate cycle is only 6 minutes long, so I go for the extra rinse at the end.) For drying, dry on air fluff or very lowest heat setting for no longer than 15 minutes.

 

Enjoy these little tips and have a wonderful practice!

A recent bit of inspiration from class to enjoy/meditate upon/marinate in/ponder over the weekend…

Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.–Golda Meir

(How, you ask…?)

 7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7
