When should I avoid doing hot yoga?
If your health care professional has advised you to avoid cardiovascular activity, or you’ve just come from a pie eating contest, it’s best to avoid practicing hot yoga. We also encourage women in their first trimester of pregnancy to consult with their midwife or OB if they’re new to practicing hot yoga. If you discover you’re pregnant (congrats!) and have been practicing for at least 6 months, it’s safe to continue throughout all trimesters. Let your teacher know you’re expecting, and consider setting up at the back of the class if you’re looking for a cooler spot in the room. We also recommend that a hot yoga practice is best suited for adolescents who have already developed their sweat glands, so that’s normally around a girl’s first menstruation and a boy’s growth spurt. If you have any questions or concerns, it’s always best to consult with your health care provider before visiting a hot yoga studio.Is Hot Yoga a cardio workout?

It’s best to come to a Hot Yoga class in your comfiest, coolest set of yoga duds. And when we say cool, we don’t mean hot pink leg warmers and a one piece leopard leotard. We mean cool as in light weight, breathable materials that will absorb sweat and dry quick. Men usually wear shorts with optional t-shirt or tank tops and women typically wear tank tops, shorts, leggings or loose fitting clothes.What should I bring?

Our studio has mats and towels to rent and buy and re-usable water bottles to buy. If you have your own it’s great to bring a water bottle, yoga mat, 2 towels (one for your mat and one to freshen up after class). We sell bottled water and deliciously hydrating coconut water (great for a post-class refresher). Our studio is equipped with filtered water to gas up your bottle, so be green, re-use, and get your sweat on!How long are the classes?
