  • Classes cannot be held without monitors.  This is an Association rule, not a Yoga Club rule.

  • Monitors handle check-in, sales of prepaid cards and memberships, and answer questions.

  • To sign up for monitoring a class, come early to the class and tell the monitor.

  • The monitor will show you the monitor calendar for the class.

  • Write your name on the dates you want to monitor.

  • Add the dates and times to your calendar as a reminder.

  • Read the Monitor Handbook to see what monitors do.

  • Note:  Only SCW Yoga Club members may be monitors.

Good to Know!

Please Use Fragrances Sparingly in Class
Most of us don’t even think about chemical sensitivities when we spray on perfume or cologne, but for some residents this can be a severe problem.  The Rec Centers have asked the community to keep this in mind as they go about their activities and attend our events.
