WHAT YOU WILL NEED FOR CLASS
The best way to start your yoga class is by being prepared! Here’s what to bring:
Trust us, whether you drink it in class or after you are going to want some good ol’ H20!
You could practice on the hot room’s hard wood floor but that’s just asking for trouble.
This one is up to you. If you haven’t tried hot yoga before you’re going to want have one. Your mat gets slippery quick!
Wear what ever you can practice comfortably in.
Chances are, after a hot class you are going to want to shower.
Your Awesome Self
That’s right, because we can not wait to meet you :).

FUELLING BEFORE & AFTER
It’s super important with hot yoga to come to class on a fairly empty stomach, avoid caffeine before class, and drink lots and lots of water. Try not to eat heavy meals 2 – 3 hours before practicing, and arrive well hydrated. We recommend coconut water or rooibos tea because they’re packed full of electrolytes in addition to drinking straight water. For those of you who need a bit of energy before class, try eating half a small banana or a couple of dates as a good pre-yoga snacks (30 minutes before class).
We are proudly cell phone free at Moksha Yoga Brampton. Our studio is a place for people to disconnect from their busy lives and reconnect with peace and quiet. Please keep cell phones on Do Not Disturb or turned off and stashed away in change rooms at all times, or if you insist you may bring your mobile phone into the practice room only if it is turned Off. We know it may sound scary, but think of it as freedom.
