Please avoid eating a large meal for two hours before class, it is not comfortable or safe to practise with a full stomach.
For the early mornings, half a banana or some nut milk 30 minutes before class is advised if your energy is low.
We provide mats for practice, you are also welcome to use your own. You will need to use a mat towel if you use our mats, this is for hygiene reasons. We have a good selection of bolsters, blankets, blocks, cushions & straps.
Wear clothing you can stretch and relax in.
Please refrain from wearing shoes at Be-yoga. When you come to class please leave your shoes in the shoe rack outside reception.
Doors open half an hour before class, please arrive with time to change and relax before practice begins, it is disruptive to the other students if you are late.
When you arrive at the studio please check in at reception, even if you have signed in online .
Leave your bags in the changing rooms, if you need to take any valuables into the studio, please remember to turn your phone off.
Note that we lock the main front door downstairs approximately 3-5 minutes after class has started.
How to prepare for Hot yoga classes
Please avoid eating a meal at for least two hours before class or a light snack no less than an hour before class.
For the hot classes, you will need a full length towel to cover your mat if you are using one of our mats. This is for hygiene reasons. You might like to bring some water to drink. We sell water for £1 and hire towels for £2 at reception.
It is best to be well hydrated before class, so please try to drink enough water before you get to class.
What to wear to Hot yoga?
You will sweat in our Hot yoga class! Stretchy, synthetic fabric designed for exercise is more comfortable than cotton clothing, which will soak up the sweat and become heavy. For ladies, we recommend you wear leggings, capris or shorts with a sports bra or vest and for men, swim shorts or comfortable gym shorts are best.
