HOW TO PREPARE

Plan in advance

  • Beginning yoga students generally have a better experience when they plan 24 hours in advance.
  • This allows ample time for proper hydration and nutrition.

Come to class well hydrated

  • We recommend one gallon of water in the 24 hours prior to class.
  • Good hydration makes the heat more comfortable!
  • It is also a mandatory safety precaution for first time students.

Come to class on an empty stomach

  • Have large meals 3-4 hours before class.
  • Lite snacks are okay 2 hours before class.
  • Yoga feels best without too much food in your stomach.

Arrive early for your first class

  • Get to the studio 20-30 minutes before class begins
  • This allows plenty of time for registration and orientation.

Essentials

  • You'll need a yoga mat and bottle of water.
  • If you forget we have both for rent/purchase.
  • We provide you with two towels every class.

Come to class with a positive, open attitude

  • A positive outlook does wonders for your yoga practice. As a newcomer you have the advantage of an unbiased eager perspective.
