Zen Zone F.A.Q’s
1. I am scared it will be too hot. I don’t like the heat. Will it be too hot for me?
Yes, the yoga is done in a “warm” room, about 32 C, and yes it is warmer than your average room, however once you get accustomed to the heat, you won’t want it any other way! The heat is important to warm the muscles, increase the elasticity in the muscles and to prevent injuries. It also warms you to the core on those cold, blustery winter days! Come and try it, you can work at your own pace and see how you do! You will be amazed how you forget about the heat when you are practicing your yoga.
2. I’m not flexible at all, so I can’t do yoga can I?
To quote a famous yogi, “you don’t go to a gas station when your gas tank is full, you go when it is empty”. The same goes for yoga, you go to GAIN flexibility, so those who aren’t flexible need warm yoga the most! Everyone can do this yoga, of all ages and flexibility levels, as we focus on yoga PRACTICE not yoga PERFECT!
3. Should I eat before a warm yoga class?
Try to avoid a heavy meal as it can weigh you down and may cause discomfort during the class. An empty stomach is ideal, but if you are sensitive to blood sugar crashes during exercise, just have something light ½ hr to 1 hr before the class.
4. What do I bring? What do I wear?
Bring a yoga mat (if you have one), if you don’t you can rent one from me for $1 or purchase one for $29! Tank tops are easier than t-shirts to do yoga in, but wear what you are comfortable in. Try not to wear anything too loose or heavy.
5. How often should I come?
You should come as often as you can! The more you practice the yoga, the more results you will see! Warm yoga is cumulative! You continue to work on what you have already achieved and continue to progress from there! I recommend between 2 and 3 classes per week to begin with, but if you are just incorporating some flexibility with your other workouts, once/week is fine.
6. What if I’m pregnant, or have an injury or illness?
I prefer you to contact your doctor before participating in class. It usually isn’t a problem, and there are many doctors, physiotherapists and chiropractors who are recommending warm yoga for treatment! If you are pregnant, make sure to check with your doctor that it is ok to workout in a 35 degree room. I may be adding a pre-natal class that is cooler on down the road if there is enough interest!
Don’t let excuses get in the way of you trying out this amazing yoga class! You will be hooked after your first class as you realize the amazing workout and results that you will get with continued yoga practice! I hope to see you soon!
