Hydrate is the best tip I can give you, and bring a towel to wipe off sweat.  This is a great workout, but you will be wiped.  Have fun!!!

Wow- I just did this yesterday for the first time myself!!

The place I went to was very specific about the rules- a sticky mat, towel covering the mat, water to take into the room, towel to shower after, no shoes, etc.

I think the hardest part I had was trying to be 100% able to do what everyone else is doing, forgetting that they are regulars that do it 3+ times A WEEK! There were certain positions that I had to simply not attempt, while standing up or lying down was still a challenge given the temperature of the room. I found the laying down position to actually be a lot harder then the standing up, which really suprised me.

Definitely be prepared to sweat. If you can’t do the motions or the movements, still stay in the room. Bring clothes to change into or even consider showering there (if available). Don’t get too upset if you can’t do the movements 100% like the pros.

Enjoy it!

I went to my 1st Hot yoga class 3 months ago and I decided to stick w/ vinyasa and ashtanga.  I tend to sweat in the first 5 min in a room heated to 80 so hot was just to hot.  I couldn’t even concentrate.  I did like how much easier it was to get in poses after 20min.
