We have a changing area but no shower facilities unfortunately.

SHOULD I EAT BEFORE HAND?

Try not to eat within an hour before class.

WHY YOGA?

The physical and mental benefits of Yoga are innumerable. Aside from a challenging workout, yogi’s seek to balance the body and mind through physical exercises and controlled breathing. Introducing meditative practices helps us release stress and anxiety, promoting clarity of mind, better focus and increased energy and alertness. It’s about an all round greater sense of well being.

I’VE NEVER DONE HOT YOGA BEFORE, WILL I BE OK?

You will be absolutely fine! Just let the teacher know it’s your first lesson, take the class at your own pace and remember you can take a restorative pose and return to your breath whenever you need.

WHY HOT?

The 37 degree heat makes the heart and lungs work a little harder – helping you burn more calories, and giving you a great cardio workout. Warmth also increases flexibility – easing joints and muscles and helping prevent injury. Sweating also helps us eliminate toxins, cleansing the body.

CAN I DO HOT YOGA WHILE PREGNANT?

Unfortunately not. The heat makes it quite high exertion and raises the body temperature – both not entirely safe when pregnant. So, we recommend finding a great pregnancy yoga class and then come to see us after the baby’s born!
