What do I need to bring for class?
For both Bikram Yoga and IHP, you'll need a yoga mat, a large towel, and a big bottle of water. You can bring your own or rent at the studio.
How many classes should I take a week?
As a new student, take as many classes as you can in your first week. After you've taken your first class, come back within 24 hours to take your second class.
Really? As many as I can?
Yes. Stay hydrated with water and electrolytes and you will be great. The reasoning behind this is so that your body can acclimate to the heat, and so that you get familiar with the postures and the exercises quickly. You'll notice that with frequent practice as a beginner, your body will start to transform FAST. It could be in the form of weight loss, alleviation of pain, re-shaping your waistline, improving your posture, toning and defining your muscles, and so much more. You'll start to sleep better, think better, eat better, look younger, and feel happier. If you practice at least 12 times in your Intro Month, you will experience these positive changes.
What should I do to prepare for class?
