Your first class of Hot Yoga ?

Remember, it's normal to feel challenged during your first class, so be patient with yourself and have an open mind. Enjoy the journey and the benefits that Bikram Yoga can bring to your mind, body, and overall well-being.

What do I need to do ?


Hydrate yourself well before the class (not at the last moment!). Drink regularly throughout the day. Good hydration is essential for practicing Hot Yoga. Plain water is your best ally. More than coffee, tea, or herbal tea, natural mineral water ensures proper hydration.

Avoid coming on a full stomach. It is very uncomfortable to practice right after eating, especially with compressive postures. Allow at least 2 hours for digestion before your class. However, don’t come on an empty stomach either, as practicing in a state of hypoglycemia is not recommended. The calorie burn in Bikram Yoga is significant, and you need energy for your session. If you’re short on time but still want to practice, eat some nuts (such as almonds or walnuts) and dried fruits (apricots, figs, dates…)

Bring a yoga mat (not too thick), a bath towel to place on your mat (you may need a second towel if you want to shower in the Studio after your session), and a water bottle or a large water jug. Note that we rent mat and towel (€2 each) and sale water bottles (€2)

Your outfit should be lightweight as you will get very hot and sweat a lot during your class. Opt for technical and thin materials rather than cotton. Choose leggings or shorts and sports bras. Gentlemen, for example, you can wear a tank top or come shirtless. The most important thing is to be comfortable and not feel weighed down by soaked and unsuitable clothing. Fitness or running outfits are often well-suited for the practice.

Arrive at least 20 minutes before the start of your class to register at the studio, pay for your session, and of course, to have enough time to settle in the heated room at least 5 minutes before the start of the class. Take some time just for yourself and get accustomed to the heat of the room.

Do not arrive late. The series of postures and breathing exercises must be done in its entirety.

If you are under medical treatment, injured, or pregnant, inform the teacher before the class starts.

For your first time, if you wish, you have the option to choose our discovery offer (€45 for 3 classes of your choice, valid for 7 consecutive days).


Don’t bring anything else with you except your mat, towel, water, and motivation! Forget about wearing socks during the practice! Hot Yoga is practiced barefoot, and you will move around the studio without shoes. No shoes – not even flip-flops – and most importantly, leave your phone behind!

No talking in the room, even in the minutes leading up to the class. This helps to enhance concentration and seek inner silence. Your yoga practice, even if it is very physical in the case of Bikram Yoga, is primarily a quest for active meditation

Remember to have water with you to take a few sips if you feel the need during your session. However, know that if you’re extremely thirsty during the class, it means your daily hydration is insufficient. Drink at least 1.5 liters of water per day (not 1.5 liters during your class!)

You will sweat! But, most importantly, do not wipe away your sweat as it helps regulate your body temperature. Sweating is a natural mechanism of your body to dissipate heat and lower your body temperature. Sweating is great!


Congratulations, you can be proud of yourself! You did it

At least 1.5 liters of water per day are necessary for your overall health. If the temperatures are high outside of your class, don’t hesitate to drink a minimum of 2 liters. Your body will thank you!

Eat a balanced and sufficient diet – especially if your practice is regular – as sweating also causes loss of minerals and trace elements that our body needs and that can be found in fresh, homemade, and unprocessed foods

In addition to losing water, your sweat also contains salt that our body needs. Sweat contains about 4 grams of salt per liter. Therefore, don’t hesitate to consume slightly saltier foods or even occasionally take marine plasma or salt tablets if your practice is very regular. If you only drink water in the hours following your class without compensating for your salt loss, the risk is hyponatremia (a rapid decrease in salt levels in the blood)

Practicing 3 times a week is ideal to maximize the benefits.So heading or not heading to come and come again?!
