The studio has locker rooms for men with three showers and women with four showers. We open 30 minutes before class starts. Mat and towel rentals are available. You can purchase water and Gatorade or coconut water for electrolytes. We have a retail section which includes yoga mats, t-shirts and Hydro Flask water bottles.

How to Prepare for Class:

The room is kept at 105 degrees and 40% humidity, so be prepared to sweat! Come to class on an empty stomach. Do not eat for 3 hours before class. If you must eat, fruit, yogurt or a granola bar is best. Be well hydrated before class. As you practise, you will want to drink at least 3 liters of water a day.

Wear light clothing such as a sports bra and shorts. Shorts for men. Try to avoid sweats or baggy clothing. Be comfortable!
