Ashtanga Practice Tips
When to Practice
Four to 6 days a week. (Some students start out practicing 6 days a week right off the bat; others build up to it.)
Early morning is ideal.
Please arrive early to class to allow time to complete your entire practice during the scheduled class time, including time to rest.
There is no class on major holidays or days of the new and full moon.
What to Bring
Your own sticky mat (can be left at the school)
A cotton practice rug (optional)
Please wear clean (freshly laundered) practice clothing
It’s customary (and appreciated) to shower before class.
No scented products, please
Please don’t eat or drink right before practice—or during.
Students may consult the KPJAYI teachers’ list to find a suitable teacher to practice with when away from home.
