Be Safe

All classes are generally appropriate for all levels of fitness. This class may not be appropriate for those with UNcontrolled disorders such as hypertension, Afib or diabetes. This class is contraindicated for anterolisthesis, but beneficial for bulging or herniated disc. Please check with your doctor.

Please take the day off if you have a cough or cold. Pushing through an illness will not help your recovery and could slow it down. Obviously, we would like to prevent others from getting sick, too.

We work up some serious sweat on the mat, so it’s important to hydrate before class and drink throughout your day. Bring water with you, or you may purchase bottled water at the front desk.

Here’s everything you need to know before you get to the studio

Plan ahead – Arrive early

If it is your first time to Sweet Heat Hot Yoga please arrive 15-30 minutes early. This is extremely important for your safety and comfort. Late arrivals will not be admitted. Plan your travel time accordingly; the door is locked promptly at the scheduled class time.

We do not accept reservations or advanced registrations

We accept students on a walk-in basis only. Our classroom can accommodate 42 people. We do recommend arriving early on major holidays as these classes do sometimes fill to capacity.

What to Eat

It’s best to come to class on a mostly empty stomach although not completely fasted. We recommend eating something light about 2 hours before class.

What to Bring

Bring at least two towels – one larger like a beach towel, and one or two smaller towels to dry your sweat after class. Bring a yoga mat if you have one. Bring water to drink during and after class.

What to Wear

Moisture-wicking shorts and a tank top are a good choice for both men and women. Avoid sweat pants, cotton shirts, zippers, snaps and drawstrings; they will restrict movement and may chafe your skin.

Please, no offensive odors

Strong body odors, food odors, and even perfumes can become unpleasant in the hot room. Please maintain respectable hygiene. We reserve the right to turn away anyone we deem inappropriate or offensive at any time for any reason.

We can’t wait to see you at the studio! Here’s what to expect when stepping in the doors for the first time.

Please say hi and register

We value a personal connection with our students and love to have a quick chat with you at the front desk when you come in. First time students must fill out a registration form and waiver. Then, print your name on the Class Sign-In sheet posted at the front desk.

If you have injuries, chronic pain, or nervousness, discuss your concerns with your instructor BEFORE class.

Changing Rooms

You will find one changing room in the front lobby and four changing rooms in the back lobby. All changing areas are unisex, so please, no nudity outside of the changing rooms.

Store any bulky items and shoes

Please store your bulky items in the cubbies provided in the front lobby, and kick your shoes off before entering the studio. If you have small valuables you wish to lock separately, you will find locking storage in the back lobby. Bring your yoga mat, towels, and water with you into the classroom.

Restroom

In the back lobby area you will find the restroom. We recommended using the bathroom before class so “having to go” does not become a distraction during class. We have only one unisex restroom, so please do you best to keep it clean for the next person.

Step into the hot room where you will spend the next 90 minutes. Please close the door behind you.

Find and set-up your spot

In the studio, you’ll see three rows of purple marks painted on the floor. Place the front of your mat on a purple mark. We recommend taking the 2nd or 3rd row for your first class. Cover your mat with your big towel and keep your water close by. Settle in, relax, and chat with the other students if you’d like. Our class room is an open forum and a great place to meet people.

Time to do yoga!

Your teacher will guide you with specific verbal instructions. They will tell you what to do and how to do it. Open your ears, open your eyes, and focus on yourself in the mirror. Do the best you can, working in unison with your instructor and the students around you. As long as you try honestly, you will realize all of the benefits!

Etiquette

If you have injuries, chronic pain, or nervousness, discuss your concerns with your instructor BEFORE class. Please no talking during the practice.

It is expected that you will stay for the full 90 minutes. Leaving early is strongly discouraged as you will not realize the full benefit of the interdependent elements of the class. Leaving early may also pose safety risks.

If you need to rest during class, no problem, simply lay quietly on your yoga mat. If you absolutely must leave, please move quietly through the studio. After class, we ask that the studio be a quite space for at least 2-3 minutes. You may socialize in the lobby or on the back porch.

Be open minded and have fun!

Yoga will not always give you what you want but will always give you what you need!

When you hear your teacher say “Namaste” you’ll know you made it.

Enjoy a few minutes in corpse pose (savasana)

This pose calms the body and integrates all the poses done during class. Just lie still and breathe. Corpse pose slows the heart rate and finishes your practice. Enjoy it for at least for 2-5 minutes. Make a point to improve your Savasana, your mind and body will thank you.

Take your time, keep drinking water, and thank yourself

Give yourself enough time after class to avoid rushing off to your next obligation. Enjoy the feeling of being truly invigorated and relaxed. Enjoy the glow!

Sorry, we do not have hot indoor showers

Local water restrictions prohibit our school from having indoor showers. We do have a cold outdoor shower where you can rinse off after class. Very invigorating! Please, no nudity in the shower.

You may also cool down on the back porch. Enjoy the ocean view, gentle breeze, and friendly vibe.

Come again soon.
