Welcome to Bikram Yoga Sugar Land. We are thrilled and we are grateful that you chose our studio. Whether you are new to Bikram Yoga or a seasoned practitioner, we want to let you know that we cater to everyone and we structured our classes to be accommodating to newcomers and regulars alike.
Bikram Yoga is an exciting experience and we want to make sure you get the most of your class. We want to make sure everyone feels at home at Bikram Yoga Sugar Land, and to help, we put together this page as a resource to help you prepare for your class – especially if you are coming to us for the first time.
To make the most of your first Bikram Yoga class, just remember these ten things:
Please arrive at least 15 to 20 minutes early for your first class. This allows for registration and orientation. You can register online or print out the registration form and bring it to the studio. We’ll be there to answer any questions you may have about our studio or the Bikram Yoga system. There is no appointment necessary.
Come As You Are
Feel like you’re out of shape? Not a problem. You do not have to be in shape to participate in Bikram Yoga classes. Just complete each posture to the best of your ability and make sure to always listen to your body.
Before you come to class, make sure you have drank plenty of water. That will help you keep your body hydrated and help you better manage the heat during class.
Please refrain from eating any heavy food(s) within 2 to 3 hours of arriving to class. If you must eat, we recommend eating light, such as fruits or nuts.
What To Wear
During Bikram Yoga classes, the studio will be heated to approximately 105 degrees Fahrenheit, so wear light, cool clothing – no long sleeves or long pants. Please make sure that your feet are clean, for no shoes or socks will be permitted. Please refrain from wearing perfume, cologne, or any fragrance of any kind. We also sell yoga clothing for men and women at the studio.
What To Bring
Please bring your yoga mat, a large bath towel, a bottle of water, and your energy and determination! While we can’t sell you the energy and determination part (that has to come from YOU), we do have yoga mats and large bath towels available for rent or for sale. We additionally sell bottled water – both regular and mineral.
Feel Nervous? It’s okay!
It’s okay to feel nervous! This is a brand new experience for you. However, always remember, everybody had to have their start. Our instructors are there to help you and encourage you every step of the way. You do not have to worry about anyone judging you or looking at you – they will be focused on themselves. The more you practice, the more you will feel comfortable and feel right at home at Bikram Yoga Sugar Land.
Listen To Your Body!
Because of the heat and the postures, your first Bikram Yoga class may be a little bit challenging, which is normal. Sometimes, beginners may get feelings of dizziness, nausea, and light-headedness. These sensations are only temporary and usually go away after your body adjusts and detoxifies. However, never, ever push yourself to do something that you do not feel comfortable doing. Remember, it is okay, as a beginner, to sit down if necessary.
Remember The Etiquette
It’s important that the Bikram Yoga experience is comfortable for everyone. Please take a few moments to read over our Etiquette page to ensure comfort for you and your fellow students.
Come Back Soon!
Take your next class within 24 hours – not only because we want you to, but because it will help you avoid much of the soreness that you might experience after your first class. Generally, you will know whether or not Bikram Yoga is a fit for you after roughly 10 classes, so we recommend that you take those 10 classes as soon as possible.
