We want to make sure that everyone has the best possible experience when they practice with us at Hot Yoga Newcastle, so we kindly ask that all practitioners respect each other and the space of the yoga studio




The studio is a show free zone, so please take off your shoes and place them in the shoe racks that are provided when you enter.  If you have any foot complaints (verrucas etc.) as a courtesy to all members please wear socks (or clean shoes such as flip flops) around the studio and changing rooms.


You want to try to arrive at least 15 minutes before your class start time to prepare yourself. All classes start promptly at their advertised time and late arrivals will not be permitted into the studio.


All practitioners are required to use a towel over the top of studio mats when practicing. The towel must be large enough to cover the majority of the mat. If you do not have a towel, they can be rented from the front desk.


Please allow enough time for the previous class to exit before entering the studio.


Respect the silence of the yoga room.


If you begin to feel ill, dizzy or faint, sit and rest and try to sip some water until the feeling passes. This feeling is not uncommon, and we suggest trying to recover in the room if you can. If you feel you want to leave the studio, please do so between postures and wait to return to the class between postures.


Bags, food (including chewing gum) and electronics/mobile phones are NOT allowed in the yoga studio during class. You will only need your mat, towel and bottle of water.  We are more than happy to snap a picture for you after class if you would like.


Only water, no flavoured drinks (including “sports” drinks) are permitted in the yoga studio.


For everyones safety no glass or glass containers are allowed in the studio.


Please wear the appropriate attire to class. We recommend clothing that is close fitting, breathable, lightweight, and that you can move freely in, such as a short top and bottoms for women and shorts for men.  Bikinis and thong style garments are not considered appropriate attire.


Please avoid using aerosols, strong perfumes and body oils when visiting the studio. During class you have opened up your lungs and allowing strong toxins into your lungs isn’t good for you or others.


Valuables and possessions are left at the owner’s risk. Lockers are provided for the convenience of practitioners and padlocks can be rented from the front desk.


Please respect all Hot Yoga Newcastle staff. We reserve the right to take necessary action if we deem somebody’s behaviour to be anti-social, rude or disrespectful.


If you have any injuries or health changes please inform your teacher regularly.


If you are sick, please be considerate of other people and refrain from coming to the studio until you are better.
