Are you new to Deha Yoga?
We encourage you to avoid a heavy meal before any yoga class. Not only can it lead to nausea and stomach discomfort, it can be tough to concentrate when your belly is tasked with digesting a big meal. On the other hand, it can also be tough to practice when you are really hungry – so pick something small and healthy, like a banana or a handful of nuts, to eat 20-30 minutes before class. Definitely hydrate well (ideally you stay hydrated all day long) before any practice to reduce the likelihood of light-headedness. Continue to hydrate after practice as well (especially if it was a sweaty one) to replenish the fluids that you released. This will also reduce the likelihood of soreness over the following couple of days.
We are happy to provide you with everything you need to practice at Deha.
Cold filtered water for your water bottle (please bring your own vessel), yoga mats that are hand-washed daily and machine-washed monthly (and are FREE to use), an extensive selection of yoga props to assist you in your practice (blankets, bolsters, blocks, straps, lavender eye bags, massage balls, sand bags, meditation cushions) and towels (for sweat or for showering after class). We also have soap, shampoo and conditioner in each shower and an array of amenities in each bathroom (hair dryers, hair ties, Q-tips, tampons, etc...).
Please leave your cell phone in the locker room or your vehicle - NO electronics are allowed in either practice room.
Yoga can be an important part of the healing process, both of body and mind. You can most definitely practice yoga with all of these conditions but please avoid practicing at the studio if you have a contagious illness like a flu. For all other illnesses or injuries, we highly recommend a private yoga session with one of our knowledgeable instructors. You can book a private yoga session by calling the studio. We will pair you up with the teacher that is most suited for your specific situation. A private session is a really great way for you to get to know us and for us to get to know your specific needs, current limitations & health goals. Remember, yoga can be used as both a preventative tool as well as a catalyst to assist the body in healing itself. We would be honored to be a part of your healing journey!
