Preping For Class
Drink plenty of water throughout the day so you’re well hydrated before coming to class. Good hydration supports the healthy function of all of your body’s systems, and it makes the heat feel comfortable rather than overwhelming. Avoid eating heavily w ithin 2 hours of the start of class.
Dress in cool, comfortable clothes. We suggest sporting a tee or tank on top and form-fitting yoga pants, capris or shorts on the bottom. Avoid long sleeves, socks or pants. We have a selection of clothing and accessories for both men and women designed specifically for hot yoga.
Yoga mat, a large bath towel, and drinking water. We have these items available at the studio for rent or sale.
Less Is More
Leave watches, cell phones or pagers, food, perfumes and clutter outside the Yoga room. Enjoy distraction free quiet time for yourself.
Nothing’s worse than a last minute stress fest! Do yourself a favor and consider being prompt a part of your yoga practice by arriving 15-20 minutes early for classes. Arriving early ensures a stress free and relaxed beginning to your life long hot yoga practice. We start class on time to end on time, for your safety and out of respect for everyone’s quality of yoga experience.
