Q: Are you part of a Franchise?
A: No! Hot Yoga Tacoma is completely privately owned and operated by members of our teaching staff, who have called Tacoma home for many years. We are unaffiliated with any Yoga Franchise organizations or other Yoga schools.
Q: How should I prepare for my Hot Yoga class?
A: On the day of class and the day before, drink plenty of water and eat light healthy meals. Avoid large meals at least 2 hours before the class. Small & healthy snacks for energy though is fine. If you are taking a morning class get up early enough to have a light breakfast so you come with fuel to burn. Good Hydration and Good Nutrition are vital keys to a healthy body!
Do not drink any alcohol! Limit caffeine as much as is possible before yoga class! If you are smoker, avoid smoking at least 2 hours before class. Also please no perfumes/colognes or strong scents.
Q: What should I bring?
A: Bring light stretch clothing and bring a large bottle of water. Please bring two large towels and a Yoga Mat. One towel for showering after class, and one towel large enough to cover your entire Yoga mat. Bring dry clothes to change into after class. With our New Student Special, you'll receive a new Yoga mat for free.
Q: Do you sell Yoga Towels and Yoga Mats?
A: We sell Hot Yoga Towels made by YOGATURKEYS.COM. These Yoga Towels are made from 100% Pure Cotton and will fit perfectly over a standard Yoga mat. We have many colors of Yoga Towels and Yoga Mats to choose from.
Q: Do I have to be flexible?
A: Flexibility is not required. Yoga will help you find and maintain your natural range of motion.
Q: Is Hot Yoga an aerobic activity?
A: Yes! Aerobic means "with oxygen". Bringing more oxygen to the blood and the brain is the essence of Yogic Breathing. The practice generates the moving of freshly oxygenated blood to every cell of your body.
Q: Can I still do exercise & sports programs if I practice Hot Yoga?
A: Yes. Practicing yoga in the heat is the perfect complement to any exercise program. It will help you to improve any athletic activity you do. Many professional athletes have practiced Hot Yoga for years, citing its ability to limit sports-related injuries, and to increase performance by creating more clarity of the mind and better breathing.
Q: What if I have pre-existing medical issues or injuries?
A: Regarding medical conditions: If you are currently being treated for any medical conditions including HBP, please contact us before coming so we can help you to prepare for your first class.
A: Regarding injuries: You will practice to your own ability. Please tell the teacher before class starts about any injuries you have. Feel free to call us if you have any specific questions.
Q: When should I NOT come to class?
A: You should not come to class if you are sick. Stay home and rest if you have cold or flu symptoms including coughing, sneezing and runny nose. Also you should not practice when you have visible rash and open cuts or wounds. Call us about your account when this is the case.
Q: Is there an age limit?
A: Anyone between the ages of 13-18 must be accompanied by an adult in the class. The adult must take the class with the young person. We suggest that the adult take the class by themselves first, and then make a decision as if you think the class is suited for your young person. Each young person is different and you know them better than we do.
Q: Where do I park?
A: Proctor Street and Sixth Avenue have the most available public parking spots. Please avoid parking in neighboring business lots, or in the alley. Also do not leave valuables in your car!
Come to class hydrated. Please have a clean body and clean feet. New students arrive 20 minutes before class to register. For safety, latecomers are not allowed in if the class has started. Feel free to call us with any questions!
We look forward to seeing you in class today!
