Fill out your registration before you come in and bring it with you!
Arrive to the studio AT LEAST 10–15 minutes before the class time starts. Sorry no late admittance to class.

What to wear.
Dress to sweat – sport shorts, yoga pants or yoga shorts and a sport top.
Guys, shirts are optional.
TIP: There are no showers available so you may want to bring an extra towel and something to change into after class.
What to bring with you
Bring your happy smiling face and leave your expectations behind. You will need a yoga mat, a large towel, water and a change of clothes.
TIP: If you like you can purchase your drinks at the studio.
Drink plenty of water. If you come to class dehydrated you will not be able to catch up your water DURING class.
It's a good idea to drink a MINIMUM of half your body weight in water (ex. 120 lbs = 60 oz) regularly. Add more water for living in the desert and sweating. You can safely drink up to your body weight in ounces of water. More than that is not necessary and can potentially be harmful.
TIP: Not all water is created equal. If you are drinking filtered water there are no electrolytes in it and it can wash whatever electrolytes you do have out of your blood stream. Drinking spring water or electrolyte enhanced water is recommended for best results.
Pace Yourself and Breathe
You have the whole rest of your life to master yoga. It cannot be done in one class. A good marker for how hard your are trying is your breath. If you can't breathe you have gone too far. Little by little over time depth, improved balance and strength will come.
Skip that BIG meal
A big meal before class can make you feel sick. Not eating 2 hours before you take class is recommended to avoid nausea and to allow the body to fully digest.
Stay in the room
This may seem challenging at first but like trying anything new it gets easier over time. Make up your mind to stay for the full class even if you need to sit down or lay down during that time. Leave class only if it's an emergency or nature is calling!
Final Savasana (the last posture)
At the end of class, be sure to take adequate time to rest. It's recommended to lay flat and relax for a couple of minutes at the end of class to allow your body cool down and re-organize before getting up.
TIP: In yoga, it is traditional not to leave the room before the teacher.
