When should I arrive?
If it is your first time attending the studio, please arrive 15 minutes before class starts.
If you have been to the studio before, please arrive no later than 5 minutes before the start of class to allow time to check in and get settled on your mat.
The front door of the studio will lock promptly at the start of class for the safety of our students and their belongings, and latecomers will not be permitted to enter the class.
What should I bring?
A yoga mat, towel and water bottle are essential for class (these are all available to rent or purchase at the studio if you don’t have your own). If you are planning to shower at the studio, don’t forget a towel and fresh clothes for after class.
It’s always a good idea to bring an open mind and leave your worries at the door!
What should I wear?
Light and comfortable exercise wear. In heated classes you may feel more comfortable wearing shorts (rather than leggings) and singlets (rather than a t-shirt) because of the heat, but the choice is yours … just make sure you are comfortable to move.
Can I do yoga if I’m not flexible?
You bet you can! In fact, all the more reason to start! With regular practise, you will be amazed how quickly your flexibility can improve.
Am I too old for yoga?
Absolutely not, not now, not ever. You are never to old to start!
Am I too young for yoga?
Students must be 16 years or older to practise forms of Hot Yoga and Hot Pilates. Should you wish to discuss this further, please contact us.
What do I need to know for my first class?
We recommend reading through our ‘new students‘ and ‘class etiquette‘ pages before coming to your first class. Then check out our ‘find us‘ page to know where to go and arrive 15 minutes early so the teacher can assist you before class begins.
What should I do if the heat is too much?
It is not unusual to feel overwhelmed in your first few hot classes.
If this feeling occurs, sit or lay down on your mat, take a sip of water, breathe and relax. You can join back in at your own pace or remain like this for the rest of the class. Staying in the room will allow you to adjust to the heat, and allow the teacher to keep an eye on you.
Always make sure you are well hydrated before coming into class.
Can I still take class if I am pregnant?
We would love to give you a solid answer here, but your doctor is the best and only person for that, and you should always seek their advice and approval before taking class … especially a hot class!
