At The Yoga Studio, we do not have “class levels.”  All classes are appropriate regardless of student experience.  If you are new to a yoga practice, we recommend your first class be a “Slow Flow.”  Focusing on fluid movement, this class incorporates all aspects of a hot Vinyasa practice and yet flows with a somewhat lighter pace than other vigorous classes.

It is necessary to have the proper equipment for any physical activity and yoga is no exception. For no charge, a mat and towel are available during your initial class.  In doing so, you can experience the equipment we recommend:  high-quality Manduka yoga mats that have a lifetime warranty and provide ample support for the body.  In addition, our Yogitoes towels are designed specifically for mats during a hot yoga practice.  As opposed to a beach or bath towel brought from home, quality yoga towels do not slide, provide extra comfort during seated postures, and assist in maintaining a clean surface.

Remember to drink plenty of WATER before and following practice.  Keeping in mind, a minimum of two liters of H2O after hot yoga is suggested to provide rehydration.  In the attempt to promote environmental awareness, we do not sell bottled water at our studio, but, for convenience, do offer filtered water for free.

Arrive ten minutes prior to class and remember to maintain “noble silence” (silence of body, speech, and mind) upon entering the yoga room.  Please, take advantage of this stillness as it may be the only opportunity to “just be” for the remainder of your day. We further ask all students to turn off cellular phones in the waiting area.

Beginner2A light, mindful meal, at least two hours prior to any yoga practice is suggested.  Respect your body by eating nurturing foods suitable for your weight and health.  Moderation is ideal as overindulgence of food, drug, or beverage will not only harm your practice and eventually your body, it may also contribute to light-headedness, nausea, and fatigue.  With awareness you’ll soon notice a yoga practice will help you in all areas of your life including healthier lifestyle choices.

Please respect others by entering your yoga practice with a clean body, leaving perfumes, heavily scented lotions and aftershaves behind.
