What is Hot Yoga

Hot Yoga is a form of Yoga that originated in Calcutta, India. Traditional Yoga in the hot climate of Calcutta evolved into Hot Yoga, which is practiced today. The room is intentionally heated to re-create these conditions, helping to relax the muscles. The postures (or asana)are very unique to these methods and focus on compressing the internal organs, forcing fresh blood and oxygen to those areas. This benefits the mind and body through a process of detoxification, stimulation and rejuvenation. There are distinct alignment differences between hot yoga postures and similar postures that other yoga styles teach.

Why is the room heated?

The room is heated to loosen and warm the muscles, enabling the body to become more flexible and to help prevent injury. An added benefit from a heated room is sweating which purges the body of toxins.

Can I lose weight?

Yes. The amount of weight loss will depend on the number of classes per week, eating habits, and fitness levels.

How often should I practice Hot Yoga?

We recommend you practice as often as you can. We encourage participation in a class setting three or more days a week. If Yoga complements additional exercise such as weightlifting, aerobics, or dance, less may be OK. Continuous Yoga practice will help improve your overall performance in sports and other activities.

Should I bring my own water, mat, and towel?

Absolutely. As with any strenuous activity, you need to replenish and purge with water. Bring at least a 12 ounce bottle. You will likely lose that much water during the session. Also, we recommend you bring your own Yoga mat and towel. We rent mats and towels for your convenience. We also sell water.

What if I'm not flexible?

No matter; we love all body types, skill levels and ages. Flexibility will come with practice. The more inflexible you are the more you need to practice Yoga. Come to Yoga practice with an open mind and your body will follow.
