As a general guideline, it is recommended that students arrive at least 10-15 minutes before the start of a yoga class to allow time to check-in, set up their mat and props, and settle in before the practice begins. This also helps to minimize disruptions during the class, as students who arrive late can be distracting to others who are already in their practice.
It is important to note that the exact arrival and departure time may vary depending on the specific studio or yoga teacher. Some studios may require students to arrive earlier to sign in or fill out paperwork, while others may have a set time for the class to end and request that students leave promptly to allow time for cleaning and preparation for the next class.
In terms of departing from the yoga class, it is generally considered good etiquette to remain in the final resting pose (Savasana) until the end of the class, unless there is a specific reason that requires leaving early (such as a medical emergency). Leaving before the end of class can disrupt other students’ practice and may also prevent you from fully experiencing the benefits of the practice.
Overall, it is important to respect the time and schedule of the yoga class and arrive and depart at appropriate times to ensure a peaceful and focused environment for all students.
