what to wear
Wear athletic clothes that can handle some sweat. Simple clothing that is well fitted (baggy clothes can be cumbersome) are best suited for this practice.
what to bring
You will need a yoga mat, towel and bottle of water. Mats and towels are provided if you don’t have your own.
yoga and nutrition/hydration
Practice yoga on a fairly empty stomach. Stay hydrated during the day, drinking water during your practice may give you a tummy ache. Drink a lot of water and add electrolytes, especially if you sweat a lot. A headache is often a sign of dehydration, and muscle cramping can indicate low potassium. Try coconut water or Emergen-C to give you a boost.
yoga and heat
You will sweat! The room is heated to about 34 degrees with some humidity as well. The heat is a natural way for your muscles to stretch and it will help prevent injury. If you are new to yoga you may experience dizziness or nausea but these symptoms will pass and are usually a sign of your body detoxifying. We ask that you pace yourself and take a resting pose if you feel over heated, this allows your body to acclimate to the heat and to practice being with your experience.
