What To Expect

Welcome! We are so happy that you’ve decided to start… and we guarantee that a regular Bikram Yoga practice will change your life in the most wonderful ways.

If you’re feeling nervous, scared or even a little intimidated… that’s no problem… many people feel that way initially. Just don’t let it stop you from coming to class. Bikram designed this class for beginners… just know that with a little practice and experience, you’ll feel right at home.

Bikram Yoga is for everyone… Bikram say’s “it’s never too late, you’re never too bad, you’re never too old, and you’re never too sick to start again from scratch and do this yoga”. Come to class, and with the guidance of your teacher just try your best …you will get 100% of the benefits of the yoga.

And don’t think you have to get in shape before coming to your first class… just take your first class… then make a commitment to yourself to come as often as possible… you’ll lose weight if needed, get in great shape, and feel terrific.

Drink plenty of water throughout the day… so that you’re well hydrated before coming to class. Good hydration supports the healthy function of your body’s systems and makes the heat feel comfortable rather than overwhelming.

Arrive 20 minutes early for your first class. This gives us time for registration and orientation. Arriving early ensures a stress free and relaxed beginning to your lifelong Bikram Yoga practice.

Dress in cool comfortable clothes… something you would wear to the beach on a hot summer day… no long-sleeved shirts or pants please.

You will feel challenged by the yoga during class… everyone does! Just work to your edge, but listen to your body and its wisdom. As a beginner, stop when you need… and don’t be afraid to sit down. It’s normal, especially when you start, to feel a little uncomfortable, dizzy, lightheaded, maybe nauseous… it’s only temporary. As your body acclimates to the yoga these sensations will disappear and you will be on your way to a healthier life.

Nobody is going to look at you or judge you during class. The teacher will guide you and instruct you with respect. There will be no need to be self conscious. The students will all be focusing on themselves… they’ll be working too hard to even notice you.

Take your second class within 24 hours. If you do, the second class will have the equivalent effect of 3 or even 4 classes… and, you will bypass much of the soreness you would experience otherwise.

Then make up your mind to take 10 classes as quickly as possible… after that, no one will have to tell you how good this yoga is and your own personal experience will then be your guide for life.

If you have a yoga mat, bring it, along with a large bath towel and drinking water. We have these items available at the school on loan for your first visit, and then for rent thereafter.

Remember that everyone had their first Bikram Yoga class… even the students who make it look so easy and have been coming for years… they make it look easy because they persevered… You can too!

Now is the time to be healthier and happier… start anytime, any class… Start Today!

We look forward to meeting you!
