FAQ

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

What should I wear? You should wear something that is comfortable and that allows you to move easily. Women often wear yoga pants or shorts, and tank tops. Men often wear t-shirts or tank tops, and long shorts. Keep in mind that you want the clothing to be loose enough to allow you to move, but tight enough to keep you covered in poses.

 

Do I need to bring my own mat? We encourage you to bring your own mat if you have one, but we have mats available for use at no charge.

 

Do I need a towel?  Towels help prevent you from slipping and you are encouraged to bring one with you, but we have towels for you to use at no charge.

 

What should I drink? WATER!  Make no mistake about it, you will sweat during hot yoga classes!  You are encouraged to bring a water bottle to class, 16-24 ounces is recommended, and we have a water fountain that you can use to refill your container.

What do I do if I get overwhelmed in class? We encourage you to stay in the studio the entire class.  If you are having trouble adjusting to the heat or need to take a break, sit down or lie in savanasa (lying on your back).   Rejoin the class when you are ready.  Yoga is non-judgmental.  Taking a break allows you to prepare for continuing the class, as well as, to listen to and to observe the instructor.

 

Will other people judge me if I am not as good as they are?  Never. Each person is in a different place in their yoga practice. The key is to be accepting of where you are in yours and to listen to your body and honor what your abilities are in that class.  Do not compare your abilities to what you did yesterday or to those around you.  Be grateful for the opportunity to practice yoga and to share in the yoga experience of those in the class with you. Remember, it is about progress and not perfection.
