How to prepare for your first class

  • Aim to get to the studio 30 minutes before class
  • Eat sensibly two hours before class, do not come to class on a full stomach.
  • Be prepared to sweat - a lot! So come to class fully hydrated by drinking between 1.5 and 2 litres of water in the 24 hours before a class. You should also aim to drink the same after a class
