Do not eat before practice!

We recommend that you leave at least four hours between eating a meal and practicing yoga. Ideally your digestive system should be as empty as possible - in other words early morning practice is best after emptying bowel and bladder. Do not drink water during practice, but wait until after you have rested.

We also suggest that you do not practice yoga during the 2-3 heaviest days of menstruation. Irregularities in your menstrual cycle such as prolonged periods may result from practice at this time.

Please inform us if you have any injuries, health problems or if you become pregnant, so we can adjust your practice accordingly. In general, if you become sick or have injured yourself, you will feel better and heal quicker if you practice.

A shower before practice helps to increase flexibility and mental focus. It is also makes the experience for your teachers and others practicing around you more pleasant! Please wear clean yoga clothes, wash your mat regularly and do not wear perfume or cologne as these can cause allergic reactions for others.
