Absolutely! Hot Flow Yoga’s classes are a great place to start and to continue challenging yourself. If you don’t love Vinyasa after your first class, you may want to try other teachers as one class can vary significantly from the other. If you like to focus on the power of breathing and flowing movement through poses, you will definetely enjoy the Vinyasa style.
Hot Flow Yoga involves a lot of movement, so wear something you are comfortable in to go from one pose to another. You will likely be working up a sweat so wear something breathable and moisture wicking.
You don’t have to bring anything to the class, the mat and the towel are included in the price.
Ideally, you would want to avoid eating anything up to 1-2 hours beforehand, as practice on a fuller stomach can feel heavier and more imposed. Stretching on an empty stomach allows for farther reach, depth and focus. If you’re prone to low blood sugar, have a banana or bring an electrolyte drink with you to practice. Drink water and hydrate well.
Each person will respond differently to yoga depending on numerous factors such as age, physical condition, body history and genetics. Rather than measuring “progress”, it is far more valuable to simply embrace where your practice is at present and let go of any self-imposed goals. Yoga is truly a life-long pursuit; one that you can explore as long as you live as you will never learn all there is to know. Yoga practice is about the journey, not the destination.
