Don't worry, we'll walk you through it
Yoga is for everyone! By honoring yourself, this is proven. This style of yoga is physically demanding yet simple and adaptable. Yoga is a life long practice. It's not about perfection or competition, it's about accessing your power, now! Meet your body where it is and come from the place of possibility. A compassionate and unstoppable attitude will transform your body and mind! After the first few practices you can expect to be a bit sore. The best cure for that is more yoga. A regular practice of three time a week or more is ideal to break through limitations. You will see that you develop core strength, endurance, flexibility and focus that will take your body and life to a new level.
WHAT TO WEAR
Wear clothing that can handle sweat! Baggy clothes can be cumbersome so clothing that is well fitted is best for this practice.
WHAT TO BRING
You will need a yoga mat, towel and a bottle of water! Mats and towels are available to rent if you don't have your own.
YOGA AND NUTRITION /HYDRATION
Practice yoga on a fairly empty stomach. A light snack a few hours before your practice is best. Stay hydrated during the day. Try to limit the intake of liquids during your practice, small sips are easier on your stomach than large gulps. After class, drink a lot of water and add electrolytes, especially if you sweat a lot. A headache is often a sign of dehydration so, drink up.

YOGA AND HEAT
You will sweat. In most classes the room will be heated. The heat is a natural way for your muscles to stretch and help prevent injury. We use radiant heat panels to warm the room. Our heaters, like the sun, produce radiant heat waves which work to heat up water. Because our bodies are made up of mostly water, this infrared heat transfer is efficient and can help gently increase blood circulation, rid the body of toxins and even provide pain relief. If at any time you feel dizzy, we ask that you take a resting pose. This will allow your body to acclimate to the heat and to practice being with your experience.
