FAQs


HOW DO I GET STARTED?

Our Intro Offer at ONLY $20 for 20 days for UNLIMITED yoga is the BEST way to get started. This 20 day unlimited pass allows you to try different styles and teachers. It takes a bit of time for some practitioners to adjust to the temperature. Taking just one class is not enough to understand how much yoga has to offer you.

WHAT IF I’VE NEVER DONE YOGA?

All our classes are for all levels of experience and flexibility. The only thing you need to do yoga is an open mind. Seriously that’s it! It doesn’t matter how flexible or strong or well dressed you are. It doesn’t even matter what your postures look like. As long as you show up and do your best, you well benefit from yoga.

WHAT IF I’M NOT NATURALLY FLEXIBLE?

The only thing you need to do yoga is an open mind. It doesn’t matter how flexible or strong you are. All that matters is that you show up and do the best you can, you will benefit from yoga.

WILL THE HEAT BE TOO MUCH FOR ME?

The practice room is heated to approximately 105 degrees for Dayton Method classes and approximately 98 degrees for Hot Warrior Flow both with added humidity. You will get used to the temperature fairly quickly, often within 2-3 sessions. That’s why it’s important not to make any immediate judgments about your response to it. You will soon discover that the heat is your best friend on the practice floor. It will warm your muscles more quickly and allow you to go deeper into posture and more safely too. If at any time you feel overwhelmed by the heat, please stay in the room and lay down in savassana.We also offer many non-heated classes on our schedule if you prefer.

DO I HAVE TO PRE-REGISTER FOR CLASS?

No. All regular classes at Yoga Tribe are open for drop in. Please arrive 15 minutes before class so that we can familiarize you with our studios. The doors are open 30 minutes before class begins. THERE IS NO LATE ADMITTANCE.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I DO YOGA?

Practicing yoga every now and then is great, but the true benefits start to come when you practice on a regular basis. Come three or four times a week to see steady improvement.

To change your life, come every day.

WILL I LOSE WEIGHT?

Many students with a regular yoga practice find excess pounds drop away without drastic changes in diet. In a 90 minute Dayton Method Hot Yoga or Hot Power Flow Yoga class you can burn anywhere from 600-1200 calories depending upon your gender and size. Hot yoga can also be a natural catalyst for changing bad habits. When you feel better about your body no matter what your weight, you will begin to make better food choices. Many students discover they have fewer cravings for sugar, salt and caffeine too.

WHAT TO DO IF I HAVE AN INJURY?

Please notify the teacher before class. Yoga is the physical therapy. Use the postures as they were intended which is to promote natural healing. Change your approach mentally from “ I can’t” to “I am willing to try”. Don’t push yourself to the point of pain. Go as far as the body allows in the posture using the correct alignment. The 90 minute Dayton Method Hot Yoga is designed for injuries.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT TO FEEL AFTER YOGA?

You may feel some soreness, especially after your first few classes. THAT’S WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO RETURN THE NEXT DAY. You will more likely prevent the body from getting sore by releasing the lactic acid. You may also be dehydrated so please make sure to drink lots of water, some coconut juice or electrolyte enhanced beverages.

The beginning is most important because this is the time to create a FOUNDATION to your practice.

And don’t be alarmed if you notice an unexpected sensation of physical and mental well-being and find yourself spontaneously smiling. This is normal. Remain calm. Enjoy. And then come back and do more yoga.

IS HOT YOGA SAFE TO DO IF I AM PREGNANT?

If you are a new to hot yoga, pregnancy is not the best time to start a hot yoga practice.

As with any exercise program, check with your physician and listen to your own body. If you had a consistent hot yoga practice before you became pregnant, you can continue your practice in the set sequence of Dayton Method Hot Yoga postures through the first trimester. Thereafter, you will be instructed to modify some postures. Jason Wilkerson has taught over 100 women through pregnancy. Lindsey Hill, our studio manager, practiced the Dayton Method Hot Yoga through both of her pregnancies. You will be guided and supported throughout your pregnancy. In fact, you will have a special place in the back corner of the room with your own window and as much air as you need!
