What to Do Before Class

New clients must pre-register & pre-payment before arrival. Come hydrated, drink plenty of water before class. Avoid heavy meals two hours before class; a small fruit snack is best well beforehand. Wear light clothing as little as you feel comfortable in. Arrive 15 minutes before class starts, doors lock promptly when class starts. Please inform your teacher of any medical conditions or injuries that may restrict your abilities in the hot room.

Things to Know During Class

We recommend staying in the hot room the entire class, this helps get you acclimated to the heat. Take a break when you feel you need to, stay on your mat, take a few breathes, and try it again. Practice the postures to the best of your ability by following the instructor's guidance, slow & steady, is more effective. What you may feel your first class (dizziness, light-headedness) is normal, so remember to breathe, it will soon pass. During our Hot Yoga classes, the hot room is a quiet sanctuary where students enjoy a peaceful meditation through observing silence. On the flipside, before and during our Hot Pilates classes, we encourage a high energy atmosphere in a similar way, but through cheering and conversing along with music.

Things to Know After Class

Immediately following class, you will feel amazing!!! Later on, you might feel tired. This is absolutely normal and a good sign that your body is cleansing. Your energy levels will soon be restored after a few classes. You might feel sore or stiff the next day. Come back, it's normal, and your body is getting used to the movements. You might feel dizzy, nauseous, or have a slight headache. This can be a sign of dehydration, so drink plenty of water and replace your electrolytes (sodium, potassium, and magnesium) Don't be surprised if your eating habits change, it's your bodies way of letting you know what it needs. With regular practice, you will experience greater energy levels, so give your body time to adjust to this unique and scientific yoga practice. We encourage you to take as many classes as possible when you first start out, and you'll soon feel amazing.
