Step 2: Pack your yoga bag

Remember to get the following:

mat
A yoga mat
(preferably a thick one)

A good yoga mat cushions your joints during floor poses, provides stability, and does not slip.

towel
A large towel
(should cover your mat)

The towel absorbs sweat, and prevents you from slipping on a wet yoga mat.

waterbottle A large water bottle
(at least 32 oz)

It is important to hydrate yourself before, during, and after class to replenish fluids lost during the class.

If you don’t have all these for your first class, it is ok. You can always rent yoga mats and towels at the studio. We also carry high-quality yoga apparel, mats, towels, bottled water, and Hydroflasks (insulated metal water bottle) that you can purchase at the studio.

Step 3: At the studio

Get here early

Arriving 20-30 minutes before class starts will give you time to get oriented to the studio, talk to the teacher, and get a good spot in the hot room.

Tell the teacher you are new

They will give you a tour of the studio, and if you are new to yoga, they will help you pick a good spot to place your mat, and guide you during the class.

Don’t leave the room

Your body needs a few classes to adjust to the heat. Sit or lie down on your mat whenever you feel like it. But, try your best not to leave the room.

Changing into your yoga clothes

Please use the mens or womens changing rooms to change, and not the restroom.

Where to put your stuff

We offer cubbies inside the main Yoga room for you to leave belongings. No shoes or phones will be allowed in the practice space.

Entering the Yoga Space

Using the rectangular green mats as a guide, please form four rows in the yoga room. Observe silence while in the room.

Yoga Props

Grab all the yoga props you may need before class starts. Please put a towel over bolsters.

Clean up after yourself

Please clean up the floor around your mat before leaving. We have paper towels inside the yoga room.

Do not leave early

If you must leave early, put your mat close to the exit door and leave the room as quietly as possible.
