Subject: Yoga class with a cold?

If you were visibly sick with a cold (runny nose, sneezing) would you attend a group exercise class such as yoga?  I've just become symptomatic today and have never done yoga before.  I'm feeling up for it, but as far as etiquette goes... am I going to be "that girl"?

if your sneezing/coughing I'd say dont do it. I'd be bummed to be sitting next to you.

Making noise is a big no no (coughing, etc)

Also, unless you are using your own mat it would be disrespectful to get your germies on the gym mat.

Don't do it! If your nose is already running, it's gonna be gushing once your blood starts flowing. I had a nasty cold for over a month and had to use a freaking towel for my nose when I did yoga (at home). But you should try to go through the motions at home if you can; it always made me feel cleared up for a while.

Thanks all. I think you saved a few innocent yogis an unpleasant hour
