What to Bring and How to Prepare:

- We recommend you hydrate well before and after class and eat lightly 2-3 hours before class. Yoga is not enjoyable on a full stomach!

During the Class:
- Before class begins, we encourage you to meet your yoga neighbour!
- During class please refrain from chatting.
- We request that you stay for the entire duration of the class.
- Check your competitive side at the door. Although the room is full of people, yoga is a personal practice. You do not need compare yourself to those around you. Yoga is not a competition or a beauty contest.
- Practice with an open mind, and allow yourself some time to learn the practice. Just like anything, yoga takes time to learn - enjoy the process, as this is what yoga is really about anyways.
