Women wear sports-bra and leotards or shorts. Men should wear shorts and a light t-shirt.  Please bring a sticky yoga mat, a large towel, and plenty of water. You can rent-purchase these items at the studio as well.


 

I don't do well in the sun. Will I be able to handle the heat?

Yoga can practiced daily unlike other forms of physical exercise. We recommend that you come 2-3 times a week to see tangible results. A higher frequency will give you results more quickly.

 


 

Will I lose weight? Will I get a cardiovascular workout?

Absolutely! With a regular practice, you can lose unwanted weight and reshape your body. Our clients have lost over 40 pounds in just a few months of practice.

Yes, you will get a cardiovascular workout. In fact, we recommend you wear a heart-rate monitor to be sure. Your average heart rate will be in the cardio range over the whole class. The maximum heart rate can exceed 170 at certain points in the class. However, unlike some other forms of cardio exercise, Hot Yoga does not hurt your joints in any way.

 


 

Why do I feel dizzy and/or nauseous when I practice?

You may feel dizziness or nausea due to many reasons including inadequate hydration, reduced level of sale and electrolytes in the blood, stress, and pregnancy, among others.

Nutritionists tell us to consume 64 - 80 ounces of water daily for a healthy body. Since you will lose water in the form of sweat, you should consider doubling the recommended intake. Also, replenish salt and electrolytes in natural form or dietary supplements.

 


 

What should I do after class?

Cool down. Drink plenty of water. REplenish electrolytes. Come back the next day, even if you're sore.
