All Levels Welcome

 

Hot Hatha provides students with a safe and supportive environment to explore optimal physical alignment in yoga poses in a heated environmennt. Students will move slowly and mindfully, deepening their understanding of poses while quieting the mind through this breath focused practice. Because this style has less weight bearing activity for the upper body it is perfect for students who are newer to yoga or recovering from upper body injuries.

 

Be prepared to sweat as the room is heated to about 105 degrees with 40-50% humidity. This heat allows for improved circulation and cardiovascular health as well as deep muscle stretching and elimination of toxins. Our classes are designed for practitioners of all ages; beginners are welcome. Both men and women love this intense workout, which develops strength, flexibility and balance.

 

Make sure you're hydrated, wear fitted clothing, bring a towel to place over your mat, and avoid eating a large meal 1-3 hours before coming to class.

 

Recommended For:

 

- Students who want to explore Hot Yoga for the first time.

- Students who like a slower and more mindful practice.

- Students who enjoy a challenge and are looking to sweat.

- Pilates and Barre students adding a supporting practice.
