WHAT TO WEAR
The suggested apparel is comfortable clothing that you can move in well. For those taking the hot yoga classes, please wear something light and moisture wicking. For example, women often wear tank tops and tighter yoga shorts or pants. Men typically are in shorts and shirts are optional. Spectra Yoga also carries a variety of yoga clothing for purchase. Be sure to bring a change of clothes as there are showers available for use after class.
Spectra Yoga is a luxurious facility complete with three large yoga rooms, spacious men’s and women’s changing rooms, showers, lockers, and retail boutique. Water, juices, and light snacks are available for purchase along with towel and yoga mat rentals.
MATS & TOWELS
We offer yoga mats complimentary for your first class. After this time yoga mat and towel rental is $2.00. If you bring your own towel please ensure it is a 'shower' size.
Hydrate well before and after class, especially any hot yoga class. We sell bottles of water, juice, and coconut water at the front desk.
NUTRITION BEFORE CLASS
Please ensure you have eaten a light meal 2-3 hours before class time. Fruit and nuts are always are great options.
RECOVERY AFTER CLASS
The first 15 - 30 minutes after class is the most crucial time to recover. According to a leading sports dietitian your body requires approx. 50g of carbohydrates during this time. Bananas, a handful of nuts or a sports drink are all great options!
ARRIVE ON TIME
Classes start promptly so be sure to arrive on time for class. Students will not be allowed into class after the teacher's introductions are complete.
Please leave all your belongings in the lockers located within the changing rooms- this includes keys, cellular phones, and shoes (unless you are taking a TRX class). Bring your own padlock to keep your items safe. If your job requires you to be on call, please inform reception and your teacher and position yourself at the rear of the room.
This is your body’s way of cooling down, whether you like it or not, so allow it happen. The sweat on your skin is part of the cooling mechanism; any air passing across the sweat (hot or cold) will help to cool you down. Wipe the sweat away and you risk making yourself hotter.
This is very important: breathe deeply and slowly through your nose (unless advised otherwise). Your mind and body will thank you.
