Should I Try Hot Or Not?
Practicing yoga in a heated room warms the body and allows for greater flexibility, increased detoxification and a deeper relaxation. But be prepared to sweat! In general hot yoga is for those who are already comfortable with their yoga practice and are looking to deepen their flexibility and enhance their workout (and work-in;). Hot yoga will definitely provide a more intense experience. Our heated classes will be approximately 35-38°C in temperature. While some like it hot, we also have classes that are non-heated where the room will be close to or slightly warmer than room temperature for comfort.
Our heated classes have a state of the art system providing infrared heat that is quiet and efficient. This heating system offers waves of energy that penetrate deep into the body, gently elevating the body’s surface temperature detoxifying at a cellular level. Please note that the room and your body temperature will rise! can expect to feel the heat in these classes…We recommend lots of water and a towel (we have some available), and if at any time the heat becomes overwhelming please take a resting pose. We also ask that you not leave the room during heated classes so that the teacher can ensure you’re a-okay!
*Hot Yoga is NOT recommended for beginners and is not suitable for those who are pregnant. It is also not recommended for those with pre-existing health conditions (including, but not limited to: asthma, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease or diabetes). Please check with your physician before beginning a hot yoga practice if you are unsure. Children under the age of 16 are not permitted in hot classes.
If you are excited about trying hot yoga, but you are a beginner, please become comfortable with yoga and the various poses first…it can be overwhelming to manage both the heat and new poses or movements all at once. we’ll be excited to have you join us in hot classes someday soon!
