Come and Get Your Love!!
Tips to help prepare you for your Bliss yoga class:
Arrive well hydrated and avoid eating heavily 1-2 hours prior to class.
Come prepared. You’ll need a yoga mat, towel and water bottle. If you don’t have your own, we have rentals.
Dress comfortable; fitted shorts or leggings and tank top or sports bra top for women, shorts for men. We have both a women’s locker room and men’s locker room at our studio and both have showers, so you can leave your items in the cubbies.
Give yourself 20 minutes before class. You’ll have some brief paperwork to fill out and you can ask the instructor any questions you may have.
Check your troubles at the door, and once inside the studio, please be as quiet and mindful as you can.
Props, a yogi’s toolbox! We have straps, blocks and more for you to use during your practice. We do wash and sanitize often.
Stay in the room as you can. It can get hot, but don’t let it intimidate you. Listen to your body. If you feel like you need a break, rest on your back or take child’s pose and breathe, you are still reaping the benefits. Our infrared heating and humidification system is designed to provide the prime environment for each yoga class. It can take a few classes to acclimate, so give yourself grace and understanding.
Respect your edge. In yoga, we encourage our students to relax and let their bodies, ease into a pose. When our muscles are warm, it’s easier to stretch them. Move slowly and mindfully to a point where your muscles feel challenged, breathing all the while! Never pain. Your yoga practice is yours and yours alone.
At the end of class, stay in shavasana (lying down in stillness) for at least a few minutes. This is where you reap the benefits of all your hard work during practice. Take these moments to relax and just be.
Come back the next day—especially if you are sore!
After your Bliss yoga class:
You’ll probably feel amazing.
Many people report feeling calm, centered, and rejuvenated. You have just done something so good! You have strengthened every muscle, released tension and massaged your internal organs. You’ve also sweat profusely, which aids your body in detoxification.
Some beginners feel nauseous, dizzy, light-headed, or extremely exhausted after their first class. This is normal! These sensations are minimized with each class that you attend, so stick with it!
The intense work out in the intense heat is very detoxifying and cleansing, and these processes can cause these sensations.
With regular practice, your body will balance out and you will begin to feel wonderful after class, so come back for you second class as soon as you can!
