Frequently Asked Questions

HOT YOGA BASICS:

 

WHY SHOULD I PRACTICE HOT YOGA?  

Practicing yoga in a heated studio provides several benefits! The heat allows practitioners to deepen their practice through greater flexibility, which is beneficial for those recovering from injuries and with tight muscles. The heat also helps your body purge toxins, improves circulation, and increases the intensity of your workout, helping you to burn more calories. 

HOW HOT IS IT IN THE YOGA ROOM?

The Bikram Yoga classes are heated to 105-110 degrees. The vinyasa and pilates classes are heated to 90-95 degrees. Humidity is set to 40%.

WHAT IF I GET TOO HOT?

Take a seat on your yoga mat if you're feeling too hot, overwhelmed or tired.  Have a sip of water and take long, slow breaths to calm your body and mind. When you are feeling ready, you can join the class again. 

DO YOU OFFER ANY NON-HEATED CLASSES?

Yes! The Vinyasa Flow, Slow Flow and Candlelight Yin + Restorative are all non-heated classes.

TAKING A CLASS:

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

The room is hot, so dress accordingly! Women typically wear shorts or leggings with a sports bra and/or a tank top. Men usually wear just shorts, though some also wear a t-shirt or tank top. For non-heated classes, dress in comfortable clothes so you can move freely.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING FOR CLASS?

You will definitely need water! Bring your own, buy a bottle or fill up your own water bottle at the studio. We have towels and mats available for rent, or you can bring your own. Some people like to bring a change of clothes if they plan to shower at the studio.

WHERE CAN I FIND THE CURRENT SCHEDULE?

The schedule is located HERE. We use MindBody software - it's very easy to use and see the schedule in real time. Many people like to plan their workouts in advance, and sign up ahead of time. You can also download the app HERE for your smartphone.

WHAT FACILITIES DO YOU HAVE ON SITE? 

Our locker rooms are fully equipped with bathrooms, showers and cubbies for storing your belongings. The showers have shampoo, conditioner and soap. We have baggies to store your yoga clothes after class. We have a blowdryer in the women's bathroom.

WHAT IF I CAN'T DO SOME OF THE POSTURES?

Don't worry about it! This is your practice. Yoga is about you, not about what others are doing. Just do the best you can, and you will see the benefits of your practice. It's about progress, not perfection!
