Prior to Class
Eating/Drinking: It is best to let meals or snacks digest before coming to class. Give yourself 2 hours after a meal before practicing yoga and 1 hour after a snack. You may drink water during class as needed, but you may feel more comfortable if you hydrate prior class.
What to Wear: Please wear comfortable clothes that are not too loose yet stretchy.
What to Bring: A yoga mat, towel, and water. We have a few spare yoga mats if you need to borrow one but it is on a first come, first served basis.
Communicate: If you have any injuries or limitations, please notify the teacher before class begins so they can help you stay safe.
Please arrive early to allow time to settle in and relax.
After the class
If you've not been exercising regularly, you may feel like you've had a workout.
Gentle stretches the next day will help with keeping your muscles relaxed and improve circulation.
Remember: The poses don't get easier, you just get better!
Not all exercise programs are suitable for everyone. Yoga and any other exercise programs may result in an injury.
Consult your physician or other health care professional before beginning a yoga practice or other fitness program.
To reduce the risk of injury, never force or strain yourself.
If at any time you feel pain, discomfort, or dizziness, back out of the pose carefully and seek the attention of the teacher immediately.
Pregnant women should not practice twists or abdominal tightening poses.
