Doing yoga in our heated room is similar to sitting in the sun, it’s a wonderful heat that makes your bones feel warm, especially lovely in winter. Heated environments increase your pulse rate & metabolism & allow your blood vessels to become more flexible. That makes circulation easier & increases blood flow to the limbs. Cold muscles can become injured more easily than warmed-up ones, so the heat of a hot yoga class allows your body to move more freely. Although you will get hot, the act of sweating helps control your internal body temperature. Our hot studio operates at 32-36°C.
Bikram Yoga used to only be taught in Bikram studios with a licence, which our studio is not. We are not as hot, between 27 & 34 instead of 45 Celsius. We aren’t scripted, we teach all yogic methods & each class will be themed on a philosophical principle or anatomical focus, our teachers have a vaster knowledge of yoga as a whole, rather than one’s man’s interpretation (not that his teachings are not valid). If you are looking for 45C heat - we are not for you.
We have more Warm Classes these days than Hot, feedback has suggested the warmth is useful but too hot is too draining. See our timetable here.
