New? Start Here

Welcome New Students!

All of the information you need is right here to begin your life-changing journey. Yoga is absolutely non-competitive. You don’t need to be fit or flexible to start yoga. It’s not just a workout. Yoga is a practice which makes the body stronger, more flexible and healthier. All you have to do is try your best. The aim is to calm the mind, open the heart and accelerate our evolution.

Let's Get Started...

Wear something you will be comfortable stretching and sweating in. If you don’t have yoga clothing then anything light and comfortable will work. Try to avoid cotton t-shirts or sweatpants as they will likely be too warm. Be sure to bring a change of clothes for afterward.

Bring a bottle of water, two large towels, a yoga mat and a change of clothes if desired.

Classes start promptly so be sure to arrive on time for class. Students will not be allowed in after class begins. The doors will be locked to prevent disruption of the class.

What to Expect

All the new students should practice along the back row in the yoga room in order to help follow along by watching the more advanced students up front. As you become more experienced you move forward to the front rows. The very front row of students are the most experienced students in the school. There is a light atmosphere and no pressure to perform. All you need do is your best on that day. And trust me, that will vary from class to class. The classes are a demanding series of Hatha yoga postures suited for both beginners and more experienced students. The room is heated between 95 degrees and 104 degrees depending on the class. Each class is 60-90 minutes in duration. This results in a fairly rigorous workout and it is very common to feel overwhelmed during your first visit. It is ok to sit down at any point during the class.

Recovery

The first 15 – 30 minutes after class is the most crucial time to recover. Take it easy and drink plenty of water. Come back to your next class within 24-48 hours. Congratulations! You have taken the first step towards living your best healthiest life with the regular practice of yoga.

BEFORE COMING TO ANY CONCLUSIONS:

We recommend that you take at least 5 classes in order to make an informed decision as to what Thavma Yoga is. Generally, we find that new students experience completely different things as they start their yoga journey.

We can guarantee that your second class will be completely different from your first class, and your third class different to your second and so on.
