Yoga Mat - All students are required to use a yoga mat. You can bring your own or purchase/rent one at the studio.
Large Towel - Come prepared to sweat! A bath-size towel will keep you from slipping and also absorb perspiration.
Water - You can bring water to class, but drinking too much water in class can make your stomach feel full and uncomfortable. The best advice is to stay hydrated throughout the day so that you need little or no water in class.
All of the above items can be purchased or rented at the studio.
Bikram Yoga works every part of your body. It is a challenging discipline, so please, especially during your first few classes, take it easy and try not to get overwhelmed. Remember, everyone at one time had their first Bikram Yoga class.
The room will be hot and you will sweat a lot. As you begin to sweat, your body releases toxins. As toxic substances leave the body, you may feel dizzy, nauseous, or uncomfortable. This is normal; do not worry.
Take a break whenever you feel the need. Sit or lie down on your back, and just relax and breathe. Join back in whenever you feel better. Just do your best you will reap the benefits.
