Guidelines

We recommend that you do not eat at least two hours before practice. If necessary, have something light such as a piece of fruit or yogurt. Drink plenty of water before & after class. If you perspire heavily, an un-sweetened sports drink with added electrolytes will hasten your recovery time.
