Find the Right Package for You
Our hot yoga classes are taught in one of three or our spacious yoga studios. Our certified yoga instructors are experienced in guiding practitioners of all experience levels. Everyone is encouraged to practice within their own abilities and explore the benefits that hot yoga practice may bring.
Welcome to IAM!
What to bring: clothes you are comfortable moving around and sweating in; a bottle of water; a change of clothes if you plan on taking a hot class; you can bring your own mat and towel, or we can rent them to you for a nominal fee.
What to know: IAM YOGA is an incredibly welcoming community and we love new students! To respect the space and others around you, make sure you leave your cell phone and other belongings outside the practice rooms and refrain from talking inside the rooms before or after class.
Focus on your breath. Yoga of any style can be challenging, especially when you’re not used to the movements. The most important thing to remember is to focus on your breath – no matter what you’re experiencing, try to continue breathing slowly and deeply. You’ll be used to the movements in no time!
Be kind to yourself. Yoga is not a competition; there is no endpoint when you have “mastered” yoga. Every day brings a new practice and a new experience, so do your best to pay attention to how your body feels in the moment and don’t push past your “edge” into the zone of injury. Keep yourself safe – it’s the only way to continue practicing in the long term.
Getting used to the heat: hot yoga is, well, hot. When you’re not yet used to the heat of the room, exercising can feel overwhelming. When you first start, make sure you bring light clothing and lots of water, and take as many breaks as you need to so you feel comfortable!
Ask questions! The members of our teaching staff are incredibly knowledgeable about diverse aspects of yoga and exercise, and they are happy to share that knowledge with you. Ask away before or after class if you have any questions!
