How to make The Wild Plum a yoga home for everyone!
1. PRACTICE KINDNESS & COMPASSION
Our mission here at the Plum is to be an I N C L U S I V E healing space for A L L people. Please be kind and respectful to your fellow yogis.
2. EMBRACE THE QUIET
Try to limit conversation inside the yoga room. Your mat time is your sacred space to go inward and begin to quiet the noise of the outside world.
3. DISCONNECT TO RE-CONNECT
Please silence your electronics while here at The Plum. There is nothing more distracting than a cell phone going off in the middle of a class. Give yourself the gift of truly unplugging, and a chance to connect to what’s happening right in this moment.
4. BE ON TIME
Do your best to be on time for class, so that you get the full benefit of the practice and not to disturb the flow of the class. And if you must leave class early, please do so before final savasana.
5. KEEP IT CLEAN
Respecting the studio by returning props and making sure you leave your space sweat and trash-free will help keep the Plum clean and safe for all.
6. LEAVE YOUR SHOES, WORRIES & EGO AT THE DOOR
The Wild Plum is an E G O - F R E E and J U D G E M E N T - F R E E zone. Help us create a space for everyone’s Soul to feel at peace and at home – put aside all worries, gossip, anxieties and judgements every time you walk through our door.
Thank you for being a part of our Wild Plum Family
We honor and appreciate all of you!
