- Sign your Waiver!
- Arrive 10-15 minutes before the scheduled start time.
- Discuss health issues and/or limitations with your instructor before class begins. Please also let us know if you are allergic to lavender.
- Wear appropriate, breathable workout attire that you don't mind getting sweat.
- Remove your shoes when you enter the studio.
- Never bring your cell phone in the class room.
- Do not chew gum during yoga.
- Do not wear heavy perfume or cologne to class.
- Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Drink lots of water throughout the day and bring a water bottle with you to class. (Chilled water is also available for purchase.)
- Try not to eat three hours before class for maximum comfort.
- The yoga room is a sanctuary so therefore there is no talking. If you need to talk please keep it to a minimum and whisper.
- Bring a yoga mat and yoga towel with you to class, or purchase a rental one at the studio. Hand towels and blocks, as well as straps (when applicable) are provided free of charge. These items are required during class.
- You can rest in child's pose or savasana at any point, but please stay in the studio.
- Bare feet only in the yoga room.
- We kindly ask you to refrain from talking as the instructor will guide you through the class.
- If you must leave early, let your instructor know before class begins. Leaving early is seen as disrespectful to both your fellow yogis and instructor.
- The first class is always the hardest. Don't wait too long before your next class, so you can start building endurance.
- We offer cooling, lavender face towels to all students during the last few minutes of class. *If you have an allergy to lavender scent, please let your instructor know.
- At the end of the class, the instructor will exit the yoga room first, followed by the students as a sign of respect to the instructor.
- It's normal to feel tired after class, even the day after your first class. After a few classes, you will notice less and less after class fatigue.
- Nausea, dizziness, and headaches are possible after class. If this is the case, you are probably dehydrated. Be sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day and remember to drink a bottle of water during class.
- Skin irritation is possible. The heat in our hot yoga classes releases toxins trapped in the skin. Showering directly after class will wash away the toxins, thus reducing skin irritation.
- Prepare to have increased energy levels after practicing hot yoga! You might even have difficulty sleeping due to the extra energy.
- Feeling quite hungry or losing your appetite are both common reactions following the first few hot yoga classes. Your appetite will normalize once you are practicing regularly.
- Showers are available at the studio for your convenience.
