FAQs

Why the heat?

Our room is heated to help warm your muscles and allow you to work deeply and safely. The heat and humidity helps to prevent injuries and promotes sweating which flushes toxins from your body.

What if I'm not flexible?

This class is not about how flexible you are now. It’s about giving your 100% effort in the right direction. When you do, you will see the benefits (which include increased flexibility!).

What if I've never taken yoga before?

You’ve come to the right place! This is a beginner’s yoga class. While it’s not easy – it is easy to try. We move slow and safe. All teachers are certified Bikram Instructors trained by Bikram Choudhury himself. We teach the class from the front of the room instructing you what to do, how to do and when to do it.

What do I need in class?

You will need a mat, large towel and water. Nothing less, nothing more. Make-up, gum, keys, bags, shoes, jewelry and phones should be left in your car or in the locker room.

What should I wear?

Running shorts, tank top, sports bra, yoga leggings all work. Avoid loose or baggy clothing. They will be soaking wet and very heavy within minutes.

What should I eat/drink?

You will figure out what’s best for you, but try to stop eating 2-3 hrs prior to class. Hydrate in advance to prepare for class.
