Each class challenges you to reach new levels no matter what your fitness level may be. Within each group class you will work individually, with a partner and as a team. There are often multiple trainers involved in each class to ensure that proper form and technique is employed by each class member to make certain you achieve the greatest results without injury. This also means that you are getting semi-personal instruction without the one-on-one pressure or the cost. No workout is the same so you and your body stays challenged and energized. You will probably never have a more challenging workout in your life but you will also probably never have a more fun and motivating workout in your life!

HOT YOGA FAQ
What can I expect for my first time?
Expect the room to be heated to about 105° with some added humidity. Expect to sweat and detox intensely. Expect to be challenged and have fun at the same time. Expect to feel great after class.
What precautions should I take?
Please notify the instructor of any pre-existing medical conditions or injuries you may have before class begins. In the beginning, it is completely normal to feel dizzy or nauseous during class. This is usually just a symptom of detoxification. The body detoxes through the skin, the breath, and the excretory system. You will literally purge the body of toxins through all these systems. Take it easy. Breathe more and try less. It is your job to listen to your body on any given day. You do not have to be good at this yoga! Through frequency of practice, you will improve your strength, stamina, and flexibility. Never be embarrassed about your level of practice.
How should I prepare?
Arrive for your first class 15 minutes early so you can register and meet your instructor. Come hydrated and on an empty stomach. We generally recommend that students practice yoga on an empty stomach. Depending on the strength of your digestion, this might mean waiting up to 2-3 hours after a large meal. It is however, extremely important to be properly nourished so you can perform at your maximum in the hot room. Consume at least 1-2 liters of water either before you practice, or if you come early in the morning, be sure to drink water before you go to bed. Wear fitted workout clothes that will allow you to move freely and sweat a lot. Bring a change of clothing. We have showers and changing rooms. You will need a towel and a yoga mat, which we offer for purchase at the facility, but feel free to bring your own.
