How do I prepare for my first class?

  • No need to bring a mat, we have mats and other props for class. However you are welcome to bring your own mat.
  • Do not eat 3 hrs before class – food in your stomach will make you feel heavy and lethargic. Later on when your asana work develops you will feel sick if you have eaten before practice.
  • Hydrate yourself well before the class but do not drink water during class or bring a water bottle. The senses, which include the way the salivary glands function, become feedback information for us and we do not want to obscure the message coming through the senses.
  • Wear clothes that have an elastic waist and wear pants that allow teachers to see knees and ankles. Bike shorts or tights work well. Please wear a modest shirt that has a reasonably firm fit.
