What to bring to the class:
YOGA MAT - Don't have a mat? Don't worry, we do! No charge. We also offer a variety of high quality mats for sale in the studio.
MAT TOWEL - We highly recommend using a mat towel on your mat to reduce slipping. We've got these, too. No charge, but first come, first served. We also sell mat towels (Yogitoes) in the studio.
WATER - Bring water. We have a filtered water and ice dispenser and offer a variety of chilled beverages for sale.
We're a different yoga studio! However, there are some tips that will make your class and those who are practicing with you much better. Here's our list:
1. Hydration Station! We are a "sweat and movement" studio so start to hydrate 3-4 hours (or earlier) before each class. Also, feel free to drink during class as we have no designated "drink breaks." To make your life easier, we have filtered water and ice available in the studio. We also have electrolyte/vitamin mixtures and a fridge stocked with water and other beverages to purchase if you choose.
2. Be punctual for each class. In fact, try to arrive 15 minutes before the class, meet the instructor, score your favorite spot in the studio and just relax. Connect with your instructor who is always ready to help you with your practice. However, if something comes up and you just can't make it on time, DON'T WORRY, just come in and join us! Also, if you need to leave early, DON'T WORRY, it's your practice! If you can spend 20 minutes with us, it's Great! No worries.
3. Conversation. Hmmm... this is where we're different. Come in, talk with your fellow yogis, have fun. No need to keep quiet, at least until the class begins. Enjoy!
4. Shoes. We want our studio floor to be as clean as possible, so please do not walk in the studio with shoes. We have cubbies for you.
5. Perfume and cologne. Please go easy. You are in a heated class, in close proximity with other yogis who are breathing deeply. Your lovely smells, which are purely subjective, will come across very strongly during the session. Observe good general hygiene but save the perfume for your post-yoga celebration.
6. Mats and towels. Please bring a mat and towel. If you don't have one, we have some to lend out, first come first serve. Please wipe studio mats down after the class and place used studio towels in the laundry.
7. Yoga clothing. The best is "performance fabrics" and not cotton, which gets quite heavy with sweat.
8. Clean up the immediate area. If you're a "heavy sweater" please don't make the instructor clean up your spot. Respect your studio, your teachers and your fellow yogis.
9. This is hot yoga. It can be stressful both physically and mentally. Listen to your instructors and your body. Take breaks whenever you want to. Even veteran yogis do this.
10. Finally thank your teacher. He or she is trying to create your best yoga experience. Connecting with your teacher may be the best way to expand your yoga practice.
