What do I need to know for my first time in the hot room?
The room is heated to 37 to 40 degrees Celsius so be prepared to sweat.
You will burn a lot of calories so you need to eat regularly, however, you should practise with an empty stomach- no food at least 2-3 hours prior to class.
Be hydrated! Drink at least 2.5 litres of water in the 24 hours prior to your first class.
Arrive at least 20-30 minutes early (to register and familiarise yourself with the studio).
You must register and fill in the medical form before you participate in your first class.
The class is designed for all levels of fitness but if you have special medical conditions please consult your doctor first.
Changing facilities and showers are available.
Flexibility is not required!
What should I wear in the hot room?
Wear light clothing (women- generally wear bra top / cropped top / vest and shorts / leggings, Men- generally wear shorts / trunks with or without a vest )
What do I need to bring with me?
You will need one large towel to place on your mat and one small towel; these can be hired from reception if you wish.
Bottle of water
Yoga mats can be rented or bought at the studio, or you can bring your own.
Most of all- come with an open mind!
How will I feel after the class?
Shower, put dry clothes on, drink plenty of water, eat whatever you fancy and then listen to your body- you may feel energised, completely and deliciously relaxed or even a little emotional! All reactions are normal.
What if I have never tried yoga before ?
Yoga is for everyone and everyone has a first time. Whether you have never been to a class or you are a certified guru, every yoga class is a step in the right direction.
What if I am not very flexible ?
Hot yoga is a progressive form of exercise, with increased flexibility being one of the key goals and benefits. No matter how flexible you are, with regular practice you will see your flexibility and strength improving. The objective of each class is to push yourself a little further than the previous class.
Can Hot Yoga help me to lose weight, tone up and improve my fitness?
Not only can it help, it is one of the most tried and tested methods for achieving all three; it is also one of the safest ways of achieving results.
Rules and Etiquette
Please arrive in plenty of time for class- we do not allow participants to enter the studio once the class has started.
If you are pregnant none of our hot yoga classes are suitable for you to participate in.
The studio is a mobile free zone- enjoy your peace!!
Clean bare feet only in the yoga studio- you can put your shoes in the areas provided.
Quiet please in the studio before and during class and 15 minutes after the final savasana- you should use this time to relax your mind and body
Try and stay in the room for the duration of the class as coming and going is distracting for others. It is also important to stay in the room to ensure that you do not “cool down and heat up” quickly.
Please make sure you disclose any medical conditions on your medical form and inform your teacher of any concerns at the beginning of the class.
