All of our classes are accessible for beginners! If you feel a little scared, nervous or worried that you’ve never done anything like this before, that’s OK. Most of our students felt that way at their first class, but they made it and so will you!

Hot House Yoga tips for your First Class
There are only a few things you will need to bring with you into class:
Large, full-size Towel to cover your mat
If you do not have or forget any of these items, don’t worry! We have plenty for you to rent or to buy!
You will sweat (a lot), so wear something light. Think of what you would wear to exercise outside on a really hot day. A few extra tips:
A bit of spandex is good (cotton gets heavy & see-through when wet)
Bare feet are best – socks (even yoga socks) will just get wet!
Remove any bulky or dangly jewelry
Bring some dry clothes to travel home in.
HYDRATE! Drink plenty of water throughout the day of your class (like an extra liter). Remember it takes time to for your body to absorb water, so just drinking a bunch right before class won’t get the job done (and will have you running to the bathroom during class!). Some electrolytes will also help.
To feel your best in class, we recommend not eating a big meal for about 2-3 hours before class. However, it is important that you have enough energy for class, so something small like a piece of fruit or some juice a little while before class might be a good idea.
Your number one goal in each class is to try to stay in the room & do the best you can. If you need a break, just sit down or lie down on your mat. If you don’t feel well, let your teacher know – we will take care of you!
You will see people around the room who are more advanced in their practice, but try not to compare yourself to anyone else. Some yoga postures can take months or even years to master. Just do as much as you can, and try your best with what you have that day.
Talk to your doctor about physical conditions or medications you have before starting your practice. Please discuss any injuries (current or previous), conditions, concerns or questions with your teacher before class.
Come back soon!
Make sure to re-hydrate and replenish with water, electrolytes, good food and sleep after your first class. You might feel sore or stiff the next day, but try to come back to class as soon as possible anyway.
Remember, the benefits of yoga are cumulative
the more you practice, the better you will feel!
