    "Privates with Drew have been life changing; reduced stress, gained flexibility, help injuries, and best part of my week! Every private he always comes up with a different routine and plan!" - Jeff Keating

    "My husband, son and I signed up for private yoga sessions with Drew because we were novices to yoga and honestly the classes were often crowded and a little intimidating especially for our teenaged son who needed it the most. We were fortunate to find Drew who tailored the classes to each of our needs. He got me slowly back into yoga after a hip surgery, while constantly challenging my husband and encouraging my son to push himself a little more each week. With yoga,  my son saw almost immediate results in his flexibility and core strength and he has recovered more quickly from the bumps and bruises of competitive soccer and basketball.We all look forward to our Sunday afternoons with Drew and it is a great way to start the week both mentally and physically." - Lucy Buck

Yoga Etiquette at Greenwood

Arrive Early
Tardiness to yoga class is disruptive and disrespectful to the teacher and other students. Aim to be on your mat and ready to go at least 10 minutes before class starts. This gives you time to relax, breathe and settle in. If you are a few minutes late please enter quietly and mindfully in between poses. If you are more than 5 minutes late, itís best to chalk it up as a missed class.

Relish the quiet
A yoga classroom is like a sanctuary- people come here to relax and find peace. Honor this by observing as much quiet as possible. Finish conversations before entering the studio.

Please adhere to the Mobile Electronic Device policy
Mobile electronic devices are to only be used in approved areas. Be mindful that just seeing a cell phone triggers an anxiety response and takes away from the yoga experience.

Talk to the Teacher
If you have any injuries (past or current), concerns or contraindications, talk to the teacher before class. This way, the teacher can recommend modifications. Please advise teacher if you would not like to be adjusted. If you have to leave class early for any reason please tell the teacher before class starts and situate your mat close to the door.

Remove your shoes
The studio stays most hygienic if everyone leaves their shoes (yes, even flip-flops) outside the classroom.

Consider hygiene
Sweat is good- itís a sign that you are working hard, and a healthy way to cleanse the body of toxins. However, if you are prone to heavy perspiration, use your towel during class to mop your brow (so you donít drip on your neighbors mat) and wipe up any excess sweat on and around your mat after class.

Skip the scents
Many people have sensitivities to perfumes and scented body lotions; help us keep our studios fragrance-free by avoiding applying any aromatic products before class.

Stay Ďtil the end
No yoga practice is complete without Savasana. Savasana is a delicious period of relaxation at the end of each yoga class. Your body needs this time to understand the new information it has received though practicing yoga. Please do not come with the intention to leave early. If you roll up your mat and dash out the door during this quiet time, youíre not only annoying your fellow students, youíre missing out on what is arguably the most essential part of the practice. If it is occasionally unavoidable, please notify your teacher before class starts, and keep these times to the exception and not the rule.

Trust the process
Itís important to maintain an open mind and clear-headed perspective as you enter the studio. Youíll not only maximize the benefits of your session, but may also gain fantastic insight and increased self-awareness because of it.
