How does a lesson go?
Our teachers will lead you through a 90 minute class consisting of a series of asanas (postures) and two breathing exercises designed to warm up and stretch every muscle and joint.


What to bring to class?
Most of all bring your enthusiasm, passion, good spirit and will to do something for your health. Please bring a mat and towel to class. As you’re going to sweat a lot, don’t forget to take a bottle of water of at least 1,5 liter and some light and comfortable clothing (shorts, sport bra or light top for women). Renting of towel and mat are included in starter package.


What should I know before I come?
Make sure you drink plenty of water before (and after class). It is best to minimise eating before class to light meals about 2-3 hours before yoga. Beginners can attend any class they wish. Prior to your first time you have to make an appointment to reserve a spot in a class, preferably via email. For your first time then come at least 20 minutes before the class starts. All the poses are designed to be accessible to all and to maximise results. You won't find yourself being 'pushed' to try to get your arms and legs into places they simply won't go!


What should I do after the class?
Stay in the yoga room in the final relaxation pose (savasana) for as long as you need to cool down and allow your breathing and heart rate to return to normal. Some of our experienced students stay 10 minutes in savasana in a deep meditation ... beautiful! We always have a time for students to cool down after class with a refreshing cup of tea! Time to mingle, pick up tips, meet new yogi friends - or just enjoy the rush of endorphins through your body!


What about the next day?
Reactions the next day are varied. Most new students never feel at all stiff, thanks to the beneficial effects of the heat, but should you feel a little stiff then getting back into the yoga room with the heat and more stretching is the cure.It's best to get at least three classes into your first week - your mind will quickly overcome the challenge of the heated room, get to know the postures and you'll be ready to yoga!


What can I expect?
Over the next 10 days, your body will acclimatise to exercising in the heated room and you'll be noticing great changes in your flexibility, ability to stretch out necks, arms, legs - and your whole attitude will just seem to lighten up several notches. Friends and family start to notice that 'yoga glow' on your skin - without you saying a thing!
