How to get started

Call before coming to your first class so I will know you are coming before I close the main entrance.  Arrive 15 minutes early to allow time to fill out paperwork, ask any questions you may have and get set up for class. Remember to bring your mat. If you do not have your own mat, let me know before your first class. Drink plenty of water the day of the class. Hydration is especially important when practicing Hot Yoga. Be sure to bring lots of water. Some poses flush and squeeze the kidneys which releases toxins into the body. Water is needed to help your body process  & eliminate toxins. Drinking water is also important during and after class. You will be sweating during class and it is essential to replenish the fluid lost. You may also want a hand towel and or a yoga mat towel. We tend to sweat and the towels may give you more traction.

Due to the compression and twisting of the stomach in some postures. Try to avoid eating two hours before class. If you need to eat something before class, fruit is best because it is easily digested.

Wear light weight, breathable clothing. Something you are comfortable sweating in, and will allow freedom of movement. No shoes are worn in yoga so please take them off before entering the yoga room.

Be gentle with yourself. It takes time to learn the postures and adjust to the heat. You will gain more faster from mindfulness rather then pushing yourself too hard. Frustration does not serve you in your yoga practice. Instead allow yourself to play and enjoy. Be curious about what new awareness you may learn about your body, that will be beneficial off the mat as well!
