How often should I take classes?

To make a change from the inside out, we recommend you take at least three classes per week. Carve out this time and make yourself a priority! You deserve it!

Should I eat prior to classes?

Eating a light snack such as an apple with almond butter two hours prior to class is always a good idea.  Drink plenty of water before and after class to prevent dehydration.

Why are some yoga classes heated?

- The heat allows us to get into postures more deeply and effectively, allowing for greater range of movements in joints, muscles and ligaments.  When your muscles and connective tissue becomes more elastic you allow for greater flexibility with less chance of injury.
- Sweating promotes detoxification and elimination through the skin, which is the body's largest organ.
- The raised temperature will assist in improving T-cell function and proper functioning of your immune system
- Your body burns fat more effectively in the heat.
- Your metabolism speeds up the breakdown of glucose and fatty acids
- Practicing hot yoga strengthens willpower, self control, concentration and determination by challenging you on your mat
- Because it feels awesome!
