Which Class?

Tell me a bit more about the different classes and which one might be right for me?

We offer classes of different heat intensities, different styles and different levels. Below is a guideline to help you choose a suitable class. If you have any specific health issues and you would like personal advice then please contact us.

If you are a complete beginner or want to start off gradually and gently, then try either our Yin, Flow or Hatha classes. Classes described as a Plus, for example Hot Hatha Plus, are more advanced and generally for those with Yoga experience or no restrictive health issues. If you’re new to Hot Yoga and not sure which class to try then you can always start with one of our ‘Warm and Toasty’ classes to see how you respond to a heated class.

‘Warm and Toasty’
Classes in a room heated to  comfortable 28-30° – good for beginners to Yoga or Hot Yoga or for those that do not like an intense heat

‘Hot and Roasty’
Classes in a room heated to 37° – good for those with Yoga experience or those used to Hot Yoga who like an intense heat

What are the benefits of Yoga and Yoga in a heated room?

All types of Yoga offer benefits to the student both on a physical and mental level. From toning up, increasing strength, improving flexibility and mobility to reducing stress and calming the mind.

Yoga in a heated environment can have additional benefits such as warming muscles, reducing risk of injury, increasing blood supply, lubrication of joints and increasing heart rate.

It is important, however, to be aware of your personal ability and limitations and not force or push the body too far. Because you sweat more, it is great for detoxing and cleansing the body.

It can also be great for improving circulation and may help to improve the functioning of the immune system.
