Just log in to My Delight and click cancel in your ‘booked classes’. We have noticed an increase in late cancellations and no-shows lately, so we want to explicitly ask you to keep this in mind out of respect for our teachers who lovingly prepare your classes and the fellow students who would love to take your spot.

Yoga clothing
Please wear clothing you feel comfortable moving around in. 

A (thermos) drinking bottle
We also ask students to bring their own (thermos) drinking bottle, as we can't provide glasses at the moment. We provide tea and water for you to fill up your drinking bottle in all our studios.

We provide mats & props
You will be able to use our mats, bolsters, meditation pillows, blocks, belts, eye pillows, and one blanket per person without the use of covers. Of course, you are welcome to bring your own props if that is more comfortable for you.

When you come into the studio before your class, you will check in with our teacher or host at the front desk. They will give you a coin once you're checked in - these coins provide a one-on-one moment of connection between our teachers and students to share any injuries, pregnancies, and whether or not they feel comfortable being adjusted.

Our hosts will sanitize the coins after each class to make sure this process stays safe and clean.

We will be reintroducing hands-on adjustments based on mutual consent between teacher and student. If you do not feel comfortable with adjustments, please communicate this to your teacher by leaving the coin you receive when checking in on the upper right corner of the mat.

Covid-19

Yes, all of our studios in Amsterdam and Den Haag are back open for both classes and workshops! We will also continue to offer online classes. You can book your class 14 days in advance through our schedule. 

Please stay home if you have any symptoms of COVID19.
Stay home if you have any of the following symptoms:⁠ cold symptoms, coughing, shortness of breath, elevated temperature or fever, or the sudden loss of taste and smell.⁠ 

Props
Mats are available for your use, as well as bolsters, meditation pillows, blocks, belts, eye pillows, and one blanket per person without the use of covers. Feel free to bring your own props if that is more comfortable for you.

Arrive on time
We open our doors 15 minutes before each class begins, make sure to arrive in time to settle yourself comfortably. Once the class has started, it is unfortunately not possible to enter anymore. It is important to us that we honour your practice as well as the time and space of your teacher and fellow practitioners without any disruptions.

Bring your own (thermos) drinking bottle
We also ask students to bring their own (thermos) drinking bottle, as we can't provide glasses at the moment. We provide tea and water for you to fill up your drinking bottle in all our studios.

Use our hand sanitiser / wash your hands⁠
There is hand sanitiser available in all studios. Please make sure to use the hand sanitiser when you walk in and please wash your hands with soap for at least 20 seconds after you’ve used the bathroom.⁠

Check in with the host / teacher before class
We will be using coins to check you in - these coins provide a one-on-one moment of connection between you and the teacher, for you to share any injuries, pregnancies, and whether or not you feel comfortable being adjusted. Our hosts will sanitize the coins after each class to make sure this process stays safe and clean.

Expanded capacity 
We are so happy that we will be able to welcome more students into our classes again! We will be slowly increasing the capacity in our shalas in three phases, with the first starting on September 29th. We will keep the designated spots for mats (markings on the floor) intact for the time being so every student knows where they can place their mats. 

Adjustments 
Many of us have missed those inspiring moments when a teacher would guide us with the magic of physical touch. We will be reintroducing hands-on adjustments based on mutual consent between teacher and student. If you do not feel comfortable with adjustments, please communicate this to your teacher by leaving your coin on the upper right corner of the mat.

Ventilation 
For those concerned with the safety of the air in our studios, we will continue to ventilate based on RIVM guidelines to create a safe environment for everyone’s practice.  

For the most updated information, see our Corona Measures blog here.

It is currently not required to wear a mask outside of public transportation services in the Netherlands. However, feel free to wear one in our studios if you feel more comfortable doing so.

New to yoga?

To avoid poor digestion, it’s highly recommended not to eat 2 hours prior to yoga practice. If you are very hungry, have something light, such as a fruit. As a rule: never practice yoga if you are too hungry, or too full. It’s also highly recommended to not drink within 30 minutes before, or during yoga practice. Furthermore it’s recommended to wait 30-45 before eating and drinking after yoga, to allow your mind and body to assimilate relaxation or shavasana.

If you can, have a refreshing shower before yoga, or wash your hands, feet and face. It’s not advisable to smoke before yoga. After practice, leave the sweat on your body so that the skin can re-absorb the eliminated hormones and minerals.

Respect the cycle of the body, and take it easy during your period. During the first days of menstruation avoid intense practice and especially inverse postures such as head- and shoulder stand. Also avoid intense belly movements such as in navasana (the boat) as well as strong backward bends and twists. Let the teacher know, and you will be given adapted postures.

Please let the teacher know if you have any injuries, pains or if you have had surgery that may be relevant to yoga practice. This could be anything: knee pain, back problems, high blood pressure or other complaints.

We recommend our students not do yoga in the first trimester, and just to attend the Prenatal classes after the 3rd month. We give pregnancy yoga weekly, you can find them on our regular schedule.

Before entering the class, please always tell the instructor that you are pregnant or have just given birth, so that he/she can show you custom poses where needed.

Remember that it is your yoga practice and your body. Be patient and be mindful. Differentiate between ambition and enthusiasm. Meet your ambitions with calmness, curiosity and observation. Don’t push yourself too hard when pressing your body into postures. Listen to your body and get to know your own limits – respect yourself. Keep focusing on the essence of yoga practice: breathing and awareness.

If you feel nauseous, have a headache or other complaints after yoga, it can be due to a variety of factors. Yoga postures or asanas stimulate many systems of the body, and elicit many processes, as for example, the elimination of toxins. When these toxins circulate through the body, you may experience physical effects. Other causes for feeling uncomfortable may be mental. Speak with the teacher for advice and guidance. It’s not abnormal to be emotional during or after yoga (sorrow, joy, anger, bliss, etc.). Observe arising and passing emotions and… breathe!
