Good to know:
Ensure you're well hydrated, have drank lots of water throughout the day and have not eaten main meal 2/3 hours prior to class start time. Bring your filled water bottle.
This will help you cope with the heat; it can be quite overwhelming the first few times. You will quickly learn how to adjust, practice in the hot room.
Male/Female changing rooms are available again now.
We recommended you wear: Gents – shorts, vest/T's, topless if you prefer. Ladies - shorts & bra top or capri’s & vest/T's if it makes you more comfortable. Everybody - loose joggers and baggy T’s will annoy you as you get hot and sweaty; fitted and dryable fabrics are best.
Avoid wearing jewellery, especially watches/fit bits for practice, it will hurt whilst you work through some of the postures.
