about hot yoga

Cardio

The heat increases your heart rate. The more you come the more your fitness will build and the cardio work out will feel epic!

Flexibility

Whilst staying safe within the limitations of your own body, you will find it easier to go deeper in the poses that stretch your muscles.

Detoxifying

Whilst you sweat you’ll clear toxins from the largest organ in your body – your skin. Deep breathing will sanitise oxygen as it passes through the nostrils and twists and compressions with cleanse and revitalise blood flow.

Tension release

Warm, relaxed muscles = more ‘feel good’ hormones that rehydrate the brain.

Glowing skin

It’s like a facial while you practice. The 35% humidity encourages dead skin to shed in your post-class shower leaving you glowing!

your first visit

Yoga benefits all bodies and experience levels so bring yourself in comfy sweat appropriate clothes and let’s get going!

If you’re new and feeling inflexible that’s perfect – yoga will love you!

We recommend arriving fifteen minutes early to settle and chat to the teacher if you have any questions or to let them know about injuries/health conditions. Please note it is not recommended that you practise yoga during your first trimester of pregnancy. You can talk to the teacher/give us a call to talk further about this.

Hydrate before a hot class by drinking water and try not to eat for a couple of hours beforehand.

Leave shoes at reception and valuables in your locker (they take a £ coin).
We sell towels and water should you need them. You can also bring your own.

Yoga mats are complimentary!

We ask that you observe silence in the yoga studio to ensure piece of mind and quality of experience. Please only talk if you are invited to by the teacher. Keep your phone on silent/switched off during your visit and please don’t bring your phone into the studio. If you are a doctor on call or have an urgent matter that might present itself you can keep your phone at reception and we will signal you to leave the class if your phone rings.

Please arrive fifteen minutes before the class start time to avoid disruption. Sometimes the front of house member of staff is also the teacher and will lock the door once the class is ready to begin.

If you are running late and call ahead to let us know we have a five minute cut off period – but please only do this as a last resort as if this happens repeatedly you may be better suited to a different class. Thank you for your co-operation.

our Hot classes

Hot Hatha

These classes break down the fundamentals of a yoga asana practice. More static than our Hot Flow classes, the set sequence allows time to explore alignment, breath and develop strength + flexibility. This class is for all levels. Great for beginners, but strong for intermediates too.

Hot Flow

This is a flowing set sequence of postures designed for conditioning, toning, and focus. This class emphasizes the connection of movement with the breath. Be prepared to sweat, tone your entire body and cleanse your soul. This class will transform you on all levels, physically, mentally and spiritually. This class is not suitable for complete beginners.

Hot Vinyasa

Vinyasa simply means linking movement with breath. Rather than a set sequence, this class will be different every time. It’s an opportunity to learn new asanas with all the health benefits of our hot yoga classes. Each teacher will bring a different slant to the class, check out the teachers bios to see what to expect.

our Non - Hot classes

Rocket

Taking its roots from Ashtanga Yoga, Rocket is a challenging & energising series of standing, balancing and inverted postures all linked by vinyasas, incorporating basic poses and some the opportunity to play with some arm balances; inversions and back bends. You are encouraged to work to your own level and start making your practice work for you.

Mandala Vinyasa

Journey 360 degrees around the mat whilst exploring the elements of water, fire, air and earth through posture and breath. The sequences tend to have a slower quality which can seem a bit like a dance. The class will often have a particular body focus e.g hips that will correspond to a chakra/energy centre and element.

All levels welcome.

Vinyasa Flow

The Vinyasa Flow practice is geared to improve strength, flexibility and tone the body. You will be led through a series of smoothly flowing postures which are synchronised to the breath. Flow (or “vinyasa” in Sanskrit) can be relatively fast-paced and challenging at times, and is therefore also known for its cardio benefits. Develop a true mind-body connection, allowing you to leave relaxed and in a meditative state. This practice is non-heated.
All levels welcome.

Yin Yoga

Yin yoga is a slow-paced style of modern yoga with postures, or asanas, that are held for longer periods of timeYin yoga poses apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body—the tendons, fascia, and ligaments—with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility.

All levels welcome.

Relax + Unwind

Wind down the week with this Yin and Yang style class. We start with a gentle vinyasa-based flow and then transition to a yin practice with longer, more restorative holds. Expect to get warm then balance it out by finding surrender in passive poses in which your body can relax, unwind and release. This will give you time to move deeper into the postures and bring your mind to stillness. All levels welcome.
