BEGINNERS

I’m new to yoga. Where do I start?

Yoga Flow is most likely the best class for beginners, but if you have questions please contact our Yoga Advisor Laura to get answers and guidance. laura@MIYogaroom.com
 

What do I wear?

Wear something comfortable and flexible. Shirts should be snug enough to not fall if you bend over, yet not constricting.

Do I need a mat?

Yes, you will need a yoga mat and probably a towel. Mats are available to rent at the studio. 

Should I bring water?

You should hydrate before and after class. Water is available at the studio. Bring your own refillable water bottle.

Is the room heated?

Our room is heated to 85 degrees in Yoga Flow and 90 in Vinyasa. Heat detoxifies the body and allows you to form your body without breaking it. “With enough heat even steel will bend”.

How often should I practice?

As with anything you do, the more you practice the better the results are. 2-3 times a week will bring changes over time, 4-6 times per week will bring you life changing results. “Continuity of practice is the secret to success.”
