Cell Phones are not permitted in the studio. If you have a fancy watch, please put it on silent.
Mats Towels and Water Bottles:
Please bring your own mat, towel, and water bottle to every class. Not to worry if you forget– the studio has all of these things – but it helps us to keep costs reasonable when you bring your own things. Either way we gotcha!— so get to class—no excuses!
You don’t need fancy clothes! —We suggest wearing some sort of fitted athletic apparel of course with proper coverage. Surprisingly, big T-shirts and baggy pants can be uncomfortable and hard to move in. Many of our classes are heated so we suggest moisture-wicking clothing. While most fabrics in today’s athletic apparel are un-sinkable technology—wash your clothes after each practice.
Perfume Oils & Scents
We love a great sniff—just not in the studio—please keep perfume, oils, and scents for outside of the studio. Thanks
We are a permission studio. There are mat markers at the entrance of each studio door. If you are receptive to hands-on assists from our teachers—please place the marker at the back right corner of your mat. No marker- no assists. No exceptions. We honor space, and this is the only way we know how to meet your needs in each and every class!
This is the most important and sacred posture and time of class. It’s said in the yoga world that to leave class before savasana. kills a UNICORN. Stay until the end of class for Savasana—keep unicorns safe!

There are coat racks in the hallway, The hallway is not locked during classes so if you do not want your coat or jacket unsecured, please bring it into the cubbies While we lock the doors—we strongly suggest leaving valuables at home.

UPDOG prides itself on cleanliness. The Sanskrit term for this is Saucha. Let’s keep it real—it gets hot—people sweat; things get spilled. Please wipe it up—we are all barefoot—no one wants to step in wet anything 😊 It is 100% the student’s responsibility to mop up any sweat or spills they create.— Please respect UPDOG Studios teachers they are not responsible to clean up after students—thanks so much in advance for understanding – the UPDOG team thanks you.
Level Up or Level Down
We are a community of beautiful yogis—it’s not a competition, and each student is encouraged to honor what they need on any given day. ** Remember there is strength in surrender— Different variations for postures are encouraged by all UPDOG teachers— Level UP or Level DOWN—it’s yoga you are here to honor your body—mind—and soul. No Judgement E V E R.
