Please arrive 15 minutes early for your first class. This will give you time to register and get settled before class begins. Be sure to let your instructor know of any injuries or medical conditions you may be dealing with. Students under the age of 18 must have parental consent, and the minimum age to take hot yoga classes is 16 years old.
What to bring: You’ll want a yoga mat, a large towel to place over the mat, and some water. We have these items for sale or rent if you don’t have your own. For your first class, we offer free mat and towel rental. We have cubbies for your belongings, but it’s always a good idea to leave valuables at home, as we can’t be responsible for them.
Bathroom and shower: The restroom is located in the back of the building – walk through the yoga room from the reception to reach it. There is also a shower for student use after class. If you need to use the restroom, please do it before or after class, as it’s disruptive to leave and re-enter the room during class. Please limit showers to 5 minutes.
Inside the yoga room: Please observe respectful silence. We come here to quiet our minds and find a little peace! If you would like to chat with friends, please do so in the reception or back areas. We also ask that you leave your shoes and personal belongings (especially cell phones!) outside the yoga room.
Preparation: It’s best not to eat a large meal within 2-3 hours of class, though a piece of fruit or small salad is generally ok. You don’t want your stomach to be full! Drinking plenty of water before class is recommended. It’s hard to catch up on hydration during class. Drinks with electrolytes in them, such as coconut water, and great for hydration.
What to wear: Light clothing that offers free movement is essential. Remember that you will sweat! We recommend yoga pants or shorts, and a light top (shirts are optional but please keep your fellow yogis' comfort in mind as well as your own).
