Traditional Hot Yoga Practice
Hot yoga is a class heated to 38/40 degrees that begins with a breathing exercise, followed by a series of yoga postures emphasizing alignment, muscular engagement, balance and extension; each pose preparing the body for the next. This practice is an isometric workout meaning holding one pose engaged without moving, helping to strengthen the joints, connective tissue and improve balance. Hot yoga is a great cardiovascular workout that conditions your body and calms your mind. It is a suitable practice for everyone from beginner to advanced yogi.

It is energy efficient as it heats the walls and floors rather than the air. The results are that our members experience soothing warmth in a healthy environment.
We aim to use environmentally conscious products in our studio including these:
