Congratulations! You are at the beginning of a journey that will change your life and bring you so much joy. You WILL be transformed by this practice. As with anything new, be compassionate with yourself and remember that you don’t have to get everything right away. Practicing yoga is a lifelong endeavor and the basics you learn will be crucial as you build a strong practice. We encourage beginners to pace themselves in class. This creates a solid physical base and an intellectual understanding in which to continue your journey into power! In increments, you’ll build strength, focus, stamina and flexibility.
You will want to wear clothes that you feel comfortable sweating in. Pretty much what you would wear to work out or run in….minus the socks and shoes. We recommend bringing a change of clothes to go home nice and dry.
You will need a yoga mat, towel and bottle of water. If you do not have these, no worries as we have mats and towels for rent and free community mats available for use.
We recommend that you practice yoga on a fairly empty stomach, but a light snack before class like fruit or a granola bar may be just what you need for extra energy.
You will want to drink a good sized bottle of water before you arrive for class. Coming to yoga hydrated will be most beneficial for you in the heat. During the class you can sip water when ever you need to.
We heat the room to about 85-90 degrees and we keep the humidity nice and juicy. The heat is a natural way for your muscles to stretch and it also helps prevent injury. It is SO healing to detoxify through the act of sweating. Your first few classes may be challenging. If you are new to hot yoga you may experience dizziness or nausea but these symptoms will pass. We ask that you pace yourself and take a resting pose if you feel over heated, this allows your body to acclimate to the heat and to practice being with your experience.
This practice invites you to just be with where you are in your body in the moment. Whether you feel tight and can’t touch your toes, or you are tired after a long day at work, a regular Power Yoga practice will yield amazing results. You do not need to know anything about yoga to begin, there is no preparation for beginning, you just step onto the mat and open yourself up to a new experience. And by doing yoga you become more flexible!
The amazing thing about Power Yoga is that it will completely transform your whole body, mind and spirit. If you need to lose weight you will, if you need to build muscle you will. It all depends on what shift needs to take place in your body to bring it back to it’s most natural state. This system of yoga torches calories and awakens every cell in your body.
We know you have a hectic life so Revolution Power Yoga offers many classes throughout the day. For optimal results in gaining energy, decreasing stress and building a strong, pain-free body consistency is the key to success. A practice of 2-3 days per week, if consistent, will create transformation over time. For life-changing results practice 4-6 days per week.
Revolution Power Yoga offers a different kind of yoga practice. It’s based on intuition rather than tradition. If you think you need to go to a health club to be fit and beautiful, think again. If you think that you need to escape to a cave in the Himalayas to find the enlightenment that yoga promises, think again. RPY offers more than the familiar poses and breathing techniques; it offers a way to face life with a renewed personal strength.
