Welcome First Time Students!

We are so happy that you have joined us! Bikram Yoga is a 90-minute class consisting of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises practiced in a heated room (105 degrees). Every student has a unique first class experience that will never be forgotten, and we encourage you to be patient with your practice. It takes about 3 to 5 classes to get acclimated to the heat and 10 to 15 classes done within 30 days to reap maximum benefits of Bikram Yoga.

No appointment is required to take a scheduled class, but we do ask that you arrive at least 15 minutes early.

Don’t come into the studio in a rushed panic. You come to yoga to relax and quiet the mind. Come early for your first class to allow time to meet your teacher and get registered. First timers will not be admitted into class late. It is crucial to meet your teacher and to take part of the whole class, especially the beginning breathing exercise, so that you get the maximum benefits of the yoga and so that you can safely participate in the 105 degree class!

Practice on an empty stomach

It is recommended that you do not eat at least 2 hours before practice. If a special condition prevents this, eat easily digestible foods, i.e. fruit or yogurt one hour before class. Please refrain from smoking one hour prior to class. Keep others in mind.

Be well hydrated

Proper hydration is like the oil in your car – it’s what keeps things flowing. Dizziness, nausea, headaches, stiffness, sore throat are all signs of dehydration. Bring a large bottle of cold water with you to class. Every day, all day, drink plenty of water and other healthy fluids.

No shoes in the room

In yoga, people put their hands, and sometimes their face on the floor. You are going to take your shoes off anyway, so please remove them at the door.

No cell phones and pagers in the room

This does not mean turn off the ringer, because sooner or later you will forget. Leave it in your car. Remember 90% of stress is self-induced.

Be courteous to others

The yoga room is a sanctuary. Please be aware of how your behavior may affect others. Be clean, perfume free, and quiet. No food is allowed.

Keep your eyes on yourself

We practice from the inside out. When you can finish your practice without knowing what the person next to you is wearing or even who else was in the room, you’ll know you were truly focused.

Abandon the competitive mind-set

Yoga is absolutely non-competitive. It is not just a “work-out.” It is not just “cross-training.” It is a practice, which makes the body stronger, more flexible, and generally healthier. But the aim is to calm the mind, open the heart and accelerate our evolution.

Accept who you are

Rest sometimes. “Do what you can, with what you have, with where you are.” Remember: “Wherever, whenever in our life we begin yoga, is perfect.” No experience or flexibility is required.
