Yoga at Dance Techniques
What You Need
A Yoga Mat. Please bring your own.
A Water Bottle. It's important to stay hydrated in this hot and sweaty practice. You can bring your own or purchase one from us.
A Towel. Because you will sweat, your mat will get slippery. Solve this problem with an old beach towel. The thinner, beat up towels are better than fluffy ones.
A Hair Tie. If you have long hair, you'll definitely want to get it out of your face. Bring a hair tie.
A Headband or Bandana. If sweat dripping in your face bothers you, a headband or bandana can help a lot! This of course is optional.
What You Don't Need
Cell Phone. No phones are allowed inside the studio. You can leave your phone in your bag in the back room turned off.
Socks. Bare skin on your hands and feet help you stick to your mat or towel and stay safe. So take your socks off.
Food. Try to come to yoga on an empty stomach. We recommend eating 2 hours before class. (A light snack after class or coconut water can be nice.)
What To Wear
Breathable Clothes. Lightweight cotton or nylon tops and bottoms are recommended. Wear clothes that will absorb moisture when you sweat and let you move around freely. Thick cotton T-shirts and sweatpants are too heavy and restricting. For women, lightweight athletic tops and bottoms are great. For men, basketball shorts and thin tees and tanks work well.
What To Expect
Promptness. Our classes start on time and end on time. So be sure you are there for the whole experience.
Physical Activity. In our classes, you will move! You will become more familiar with yoga the more you practice, and it may take a few tries. All of our classes are open-level so feel free to join us.
Breathing and Meditation. In yoga, the breath is just as important as your movements. Your teacher will guide your inhales and exhales to compliment the poses. Your breath brings you into the present moment and takes you into a meditative state. This is one aspect of yoga that really helps you clear your mind.
Sweat. You will sweat, we promise! Sweating is one of the most important mechanisms of natural healing. When you combine heat with breath you get a powerful, detoxifying, and cleansing practice. Don't worry about wiping it off- just let it drip! Sweating is the goal.
Dance Techniques is now offering Yoga for adults two days a week! We will be offering classes in eight-week sessions.
