What do I need to bring with me?

• You don’t need to sign up, but please arrive at least 15 minutes before class. This will give you enough time to register, change, and become used to your surroundings.
• Dress as if you were going to the beach – light, fitted exercise clothing work fine. Avoid baggy T-shirts and pants. A sleeveless top and shorts are best. Don’t worry about shoes – you’ll be doing your yoga barefoot.
• Avoid eating 2-3 hours before class – yoga is always best practiced on an empty stomach. Some people however need to have a little something in their belly (such as a piece of fruit or an energy bar). You’ll soon work out what works for you and what your body needs.
• Be well-hydrated! Drink lots of water before coming to class. We should be drinking 2 liters a day anyway, but on the days you do Hotyoga you should drink 3-4 liters!
• Come with an open mind. Be ready to laugh a little, maybe cry a bit, and to sweat a lot!

Should I drink before class?

• Yes! Drink plenty of water before, during and after the class. Some students add electrolytes to water. You sweat out toxic chemicals from your body but also may sweat out important trace minerals. The electrolytes are essential trace vitamins and minerals your body needs to function at optimal levels.

Can I eat before a Hot Yoga class?

• No! Don’t eat anything for at least 2 hours before your class – ideally eat nothing 3 hours before your class.

How often should I practice?

• As often as you can. For great results, practice three times per week. For life changing results, practice six days per week. One class is better than nothing. Six classes per week (with one day rest) are amazing.

Can I lose weight?

• YES! Whenever you are moving your body, you are burning calories. In a 90 minute Bikram yoga class you can burn between 350-500 calories. You’ll find as you feel better about your body, you’ll begin to make better food choices. Meanwhile, your cravings for sugar, salt and caffeine will decrease, and you’ll eat less junk – good news for your waistline!

What health concerns do I need to look out for?

• Always follow your doctor’s orders and consult with your doctor if you are on any medications or have any known health issues. Pay attention to your body during class, and if necessary, consult your doctor when your symptoms change.
• Dizziness or nausea may occur during your class. If this happens, LAY DOWN and do not try to work through this! Usually it will pass in a few minutes. As you progress, these occurrences will disappear as your body adapts to the heat and your fitness improves.
