What should you know before your first Ashtanga class?

○ Please arrive 10 minutes early for your first class to familiarise yourself with the space.

○ Wear comfortable clothes that are easy to move in.

○ You can borrow one of our mats, but you may want to buy your own if you practice regularly.

○ We do not have a shower at the studio but we do have three small sinks!

○ Hydrate well at least an hour before class; and hydrate well after.

○ Try not to eat before class; a full stomach does not feel good during practice.

○ Have a hot shower or warm bath before practice.

○ Do not be afraid to ask questions; that is what we are here for!

○ When in doubt send an email: info@findthebalance.co.uk
