Welcome to Our Studio
Are you looking for some peace of mind in a messy world? Have you been away from your mat for a while, or are you completely new to yoga? Have people told you that you should try yoga, but you’re not sure where to begin? Come take a class and let us help you get started!
We offer a healing hot yoga practice for every body. Beginners are welcome in all of our classes – no prior experience or flexibility required. We explain all the poses step by step, so there’s no need to learn anything in advance. The classes are heated, of course, so just come well hydrated and be prepared to sweat!
If you’ve never done hot yoga before, we encourage you to pace yourself in the beginning and take breaks whenever you need them. Just breathe – everything else is optional. After the first 3-5 classes, your body will adjust to the hot room and you’ll start to feel more comfortable and do more of the class.
Checklist for Your 1st Class
Bring a Yoga Mat, a Towel, & Water
You will need a full size towel (like a beach towel or bath towel) to put over your mat. You can rent a mat from us until you get your own.
Be Ready to SWEAT
Dress light (like you’re going to the beach), come to class well hydrated, and avoid large meals 2-3 hours before class.
Don’t stress out about doing the poses perfectly on your first day. It’s just yoga! Have fun, breathe, and come try it again tomorrow.
Frequently Asked Questions
We keep our room heated to about 100-105 degrees with 40-50%
For the best experience, come to class well hydrated and on a relatively empty stomach. We recommend no large meals for 2-3 hours before class. A light snack before class (such as a piece of fruit or a smoothie) works well for many people. With a little practice, you’ll find out what works best for you.
If you need to step out, you are free to do so! However, we encourage you to stay in the room for the full 90 minutes if you can, because it will help your body adjust to the heat. You can sit down and take breaks anytime during the class. Focus on doing less and breathing more until your body get used to the hot room. Within 3-5 classes, much of the initial discomfort will pass.
Don’t worry, this will help! Keep practicing and don’t force anything.

YES! Yoga can be extremely helpful for many common ailments such as back pain, joint pain, and arthritis, and it will definitely help you get in shape. Just make sure it’s ok with your doctor (if you have any chronic conditions), listen to your body in class, and let your teacher know if you’re dealing with any acute issues – she or he may be able to give you some helpful tips on how to proceed in class.
Nope – just come in! Be sure to come 15-20 minutes early if it’s your first time here so that you have time to find the studio and get settled in.
A headache is a common sign of dehydration. Fortunately, that is easily fixed! Drink plenty of water before and after class, be sure to replenish your electrolytes, and make sure you are breathing in class.
For best results, practice regularly! Yoga can be done every day – no rest days required – since we include plenty of resting time during class. If you’re looking for a dramatic change in your body and mind, try to practice at least 3-4 times a week. If you’re doing yoga to supplement your other activities, or you have a busy schedule, even 1 class every week will give you results.
