Nylon shorts or capris, tank top, sports bra, or swimsuit. Please no sweat pants.

How to Prepare

Plan in advance
Beginning yoga students generally have a better experience when they plan 12-24 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 12-24 hours prior to class. Good hydration supports the healthy function of all the bodily systems and makes the heat more comfortable! It is also a mandatory safety precaution for first-time students.
Come to class on an empty stomach
Large meals should be consumed 3-4 hours before class. Light healthy snacks, fruit, veggies, nuts are okay 1 1/2-2 hours before class.
Arrive 10-15 minutes early for your first class
This allows plenty of time for registration and orientation. Please note that our doors will be locked once class starts so please be on time!
Class Essentials
You'll need a large towel, yoga mat and bottle of water. If you forget we have all three for rent or purchase.
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.

How to Improve

Practice Practice Practice
Remember that every yogi started out as a beginner. Yoga practice is much like learning to play an instrument or speak a foreign language, a little effort every day goes a long way.
Take a second class within 24 hours
Class is usually much easier the 2nd day and it will help relieve sore muscles.
Hit the ground running
Practice 10 yoga and/or Hot Pilates classes as quickly as possible. Ten classes done in 3 weeks or less creates a great baseline from which your new yoga/fitness practice can soar.
