We certainly want you to wear what is comfortable, but realize the room is usually 95 – 100 degrees at all times. It is recommended that women should wear a close fitting tank top or sports bra along with shorts, or tight-fitting capri or yoga pants. We recommend running shorts, athletic shorts, or swim trunks for male students, provided they ensure full coverage. Most men do not wear a shirt in class but if you do, we recommend a fabric that wicks away sweat from the body. Please do not wear speedos, thongs, or bikinis.
WHAT IF I’M NOT FLEXIBLE?
This is the most common misconception that prevents people from coming to a yoga class. Anyone, regardless of age or current physical condition, will benefit from stretching the spine and body, in the most effective, therapeutic yoga routine imaginable!
WHY IS THE ROOM HEATED?
The heat supports the natural healing process of the body, by increasing one’s flexibility, and releasing deep tension, while cleansing the entire body.

HOW DO I PREPARE?
Eat light the day of class; you may not want to eat anything three hours prior. Drink lots of water the day of class as it is important that you are well hydrated. Remember, you will sweat — a lot. Please try to arrive early so that you can start the class on time. First time students may wish to arrive 15 minutes early to speak with the instructor about any concerns or questions they might have.
