FAQ

What do I need to attend class?
Bring a yoga mat and a large towel that will cover your mat completely. You may rent a mat or towel if needed.  Mat/towel combo mats are also used by some students. Bring a bottle of cold water, we also sell chilled spring water, $2 to fill up a bottle. We do not allow any other liquids in class.
What should I wear?
Females should wear an athletic bra and close-fitting top, close-fitting shorts or long pants. No bikinis or bathing suits. 



Men should wear thigh-length shorts over underwear or surf trunk type shorts, shirts should be close-fitting if worn. No speedos or swim-type suits. 

Should I eat something before class?
It is recommended that you do not eat for at least 3 hours before class.
Why is the room heated?
The heated environment promotes sweating, which is beneficial for many reasons including detoxification and body temperature regulation. You may feel a little hot at first, this is perfectly normal and it only takes a few minutes to acclimate.  The heat also loosens up muscles and connective tissue, allowing deeper and safer stretching.
I’ve done hot yoga before, what’s the difference between that and Bikram yoga?

Hot yoga is not Bikram yoga. Bikram’s Beginning Yoga Class is a 90 minute eye-open meditation class and is a sequence of postures (asana) and breathing exercises (pranayama) led by a certified Bikram yoga instructor in a studio that offers only Bikram yoga classes. 

Why is it important to adhere to Bikram’s method?
Bikram is recognized around the world as the preeminent hatha yoga teacher because of his upbringing and tutelage under Bishnu Ghosh, founder of the Ghosh College of Physical Education in Calcutta, India. Bikram was the All-India Yoga Champion 3 years in a row when only a teenager. All certified Bikram teachers attend a 9 week intensive training under Bikram’s guidance and must adhere to Bikram’s exacting standards for the benefit and safety of their students.
