We've put together some tips that will help guide you though your first class at the studio. Because, we want you to come back for more!
Give yourself plenty of time to fill out your registration form, get changed and find yourself a spot in the hot room.
Hydrate... But not too much!
We encourage all new students to drink plenty of water leading up to their first class. Don't drink too much right before class though as a
full tummy of water can make it harder to practice some postures.
Just two hours before class... However, if you do need to eat, a small piece of fruit (such as an apple) will do.
Bring your yoga mat, a large towel and a bottle of water!
You must bring your own yoga mat as we have suspended hiring of mats due to COVID-19. We are however hiring commercially cleaned towels. Remember to bring or hire a second towel if you wish to shower afterwards. We sell water too so if you forget your bottle, we won't let you go thirsty! No yoga mat, no practice!
Wear light clothing
Whatever you do, don't come in long pants!
Wear light fitting, comfortable clothing suitable to get hot and sweaty in.
We have the answers! We are here to guide you and ensure you have the best introduction to Bikram Yoga and Hot Pilates. If you have any questions before class, please ask your teacher, and they will be only too happy to help.
In and out through the nose... not through your mouth. This will help to increase your meditative state and allow you to focus on each moment of your practice.
Take lots of breaks if you need to...
Even the most seasoned yogi's can take breaks during their classes. Simply lie in savasana with your feet to the back wall or kneel facing the front mirrors. Come back and join the practice once you are ready.
Stay in the room
Yes, you will be sweating and yes, it will be hot. The important thing is to stay in the room.
Eat, hydrate and come back the next day... because we'd love to #seeyouonthemat soon. And remember to thank yourself for finding the time to practice!
