What should I expect?
Expect to work hard in the class and take breaks when you need to. The goal on your first day is to stay in the room for the full 90 minutes. Each day you will be able to do more than you ever thought possible. Just do your best and try the right way- then you get 100% benefit!
What should I do before the class?
Come to class hydrated! Drink 1-2 Liters of water throughout the day before you come to class. It is better to hydrate throughout the day than to try to drink it all at once. Symptoms of dehydration are dizziness and nausea, you definitely don’t want to be battling this on your first class. Come on an empty stomach. Don’t eat about 2-4 hours before the class, your body will be trying to digest food and you need your body’s 100% energy for the task at hand! Arrive 15 minutes early to fill out our waiver, get acquainted with the studio’s facilities, set up your mat and let us know about any injuries or conditions you may be working with.
