What should I wear to practice?
Suitable clothing for yoga practice includes tank tops, sport bras, shorts, and leggings.
Please keep in mind the room is hot and you will sweat. Baggy clothing and cotton material are not recommended as it may limit your movements.
What do I bring to class?
A yoga mat (mandatory), a large beach size towel and bottled water (no glass containers, please). Mats and towels are available for rent and water is available for purchase. Feel free to travel lite, we have you covered.
If during the class you run out of water, we will bring you a cold bottle from our reserve. Leaving the room to refill your water bottle is not permitted as it creates a distraction for the entire class.
What should I eat before/after class?
Yoga is best practiced on an empty stomach. Try not to eat 2-3 hours before class. However, if you feel that you need extra fuel, it's best to keep it lite.
Most importantly, HYDRATE!!! Drink plenty of water starting more than an hour before class. After your practice, eat what feels right and don’t forget to HYDRATE!!!
Why do we practice in the heat?
The heat is a valuable element for the opening of your body. Think of a piece of steel, we melt it before we bend it. Same concept for your body. By heating the body first, muscles and joints are able to move with less resistance becoming less susceptible to injury.
In addition, the heat is a catalyst for the body's purification system allowing it to cleanse. With increased sweat, more toxins are released.
How many time a week is it ok to practice?
We recommend practicing at least 3 times per week for maximum benefit. Daily practice is welcomed and encouraged, your body may crave this!
I feel nauseous and dizzy during class, is this normal?
Nausea and dizziness are common and temporary. These symptoms are normally signs of dehydration and/or lack of breath.
Be sure to drink plenty of water before class and be conscious of your breathing during your practice.
I'm very sore after my first class, is this normal?
Absolutely. You did it right. The best thing to do is practice the following day. Your muscles and joints will thank you.
