Before the class
- Come to class well hydrated. Drink plenty of water during the day. Do not drink anymore 1 hour before the class.
- Avoid having a large meal for a period of three hours before class. This approach will help you prevent discomfort during class. Generally, it is okay to have a light meal two hours before class. Having some fruit before the class is usually ok.
What do you take with you?
- Practice good hygiene, arrive clean, and free of scents and perfumes. These might be distracting. Also a lot of people are allergic to perfumes or become nauseous of strong scents. When needed you can take a shower in the studio before the class. Smokers are advised to take a shower before class.
- Bring a water bottle. There is also water for sale in the studio.
- For your first class you can rent a mat and yoga towel for free. When you want to practice on your own towel bring one, big enough to cover your yoga mat or bring 2 smalles ones. Also bring another towel for your shower. Appropriate towels and mats are also for rent and for sale in the studio.
- Bring your own reusable plastic bag for yoga clothes and towels after class. For environmental reasons, no plastic bags are provided.
- Leave your valuables at home.
- After class, preferably shower only with water. When you want to use shower products, please use only scentless ones.
