What can I expect after class?

  • You might feel very tired after class, this is absolutely normal and a good sign that your body is cleansing. Your energy levels should be restored to normal within several classes.
  • You might find yourself feeling extremely energetic and experience difficulty sleeping. Don’t worry, this is a good sign the yoga is filling you up with energy.
  • You might feel dizzy or nauseous, this is a normally a sign your body is dehydrated. Replenish your body’s fluids with at least 36 to 64 ounces of water per day. You must also replenish your minerals, the major ones being sodium, potassium, magnesium and calcium. The studio sells coconut water and electrolyte packets which are fantastic to help your body hydrate.
  • You might feel stiff or sore after class, come back as soon as possible! Your body is waking up and coming alive. Keep the process going. Any feelings of being overwhelmed will fade away with each additional Bikram Yoga class you attend. Your next class will be much better than the first.
  • Every class is different. Experience each class like it is your first class. Your body is different every day and it is normal for certain postures to be easy one day and difficult the next. Having a difficult class is part of the process. The miserable class will be followed by a great class. The important result is HOW YOU FEEL AFTER CLASS.
  • Last, but not least, you should expect to feel better the more you practice. Your body will become more flexible, stronger, healthier, and toned with each class.
