Quick Tips to Help with Your First Visit:

  • The first time you come to the studio, arrive early. This will give you time to register at the front desk, fill out a waiver, and get prepared for class. If you arrive late, you risk not being able to get into the class.
  • Wear breathable, comfortable clothing that you feel good moving in.
  • Drop any fixed perceptions (drishtis) about yoga, so you can come with an open mind and an open heart.
  • You can pre-register for class by downloading the Cleveland Yoga Little Italy app, register here on our website, or just come in!


What to bring to your yoga class

  • A yoga mat and your own props (block and strap).
  • A hand towel, or yoga towel. Classes get SWEATY!
  • A water bottle to bring into class (or you can purchase bottled water at the studio).

Most importantly, Be Patient with Yourself.

Give yourself time to get familiar with the yoga practice.

Like any new activity, it will take a few classes to get familiar with the new poses you are learning, the new muscles you are discovering, and the new language you will be hearing.

Remember…it’s a practice.

  • The more you come, the more natural the yoga practice will become.
  • You will get stronger with every practice, physically and mentally.

To make your registration process stress-free, please complete this waiver and bring it with you on your first visit.
