The Yoga room is heated to a comfortable temperature to allow the body to lengthen and stretch safely and to also aid detoxification. We use high quality Infrared heating panels to provide a comfortable, even heat that will be felt across the entire room.
Infrared heat rays radiate the same rays that are found in sunlight but don’t cause sunburn or any skin damage. The rays safely penetrate deep into the body, generating multiple benefits including increased blood flow, higher levels of oxygen and white blood cells, while also stimulating the production of collagen.
Yes! Have a light snack at least 1 hour before class starts, especially if you have low blood pressure or sugar and it is advisable to have heavy meal at least 2.5 hours in advance. Please do not come to class with a hungry stomach as it will affect your energy during class.
2 or 3 classes per week is a great starting point when you’re new to yoga. Many people jump right in and enjoy a daily practice. If possible, we suggest mixing up the styles such as Vinyasa Flow one day and Yoga Therapy the next.

Yoga is not a religion. It is a technique of physical movements leading to health improvements. If yoga has a belief system, it’s simply to become more connected to your body. Treat your body like the temple that it is and nourish it with only happy thoughts!
Although many forms of exercise provide a wonderful physical workout, only yoga can claim to be a therapeutic system that helps heals injuries, improve chronic illness and balance mental stress.
We close our yoga studio doors during class for the safety and security of our students. Our priority is to promptly begin and end each class on time so that the flow of the class isn’t disrupted. We recommend getting to the studio 5-15 minutes before class starts so you can get ready to get your yoga practice on.
As a matter of fact, promotes flexibility! You don’t have to be flexible to start doing yoga. During the workday, much of our activity shortens muscles. Think about how often you either sit at a desk, in your car or at home. Yoga lengthens and expands muscles while helping you release toxins that build up in your body over time. Becoming more flexible is a great benefit of yoga, but the goal is to live more powerfully in mind, body and spirit.

Our yoga instructors often end class with the ancient traditional phrase “Namaste”. This gesture is an acknowledgement of one soul to another. “Nama” means bow; “as” means I; and “te” means you.
