Are you ready to start your Hot Yoga journey but you're not sure what to expect?

Everyone starts from the same place, and the great thing is that our hot 26 practice is designed to be for beginners and is even suitable for people who are currently not doing any exercise.   Thanks to the heat, you can safely work on relaxing your muscles and joints, while strengthening your body. 


Our original hot yoga classes will always have the same sequence, allowing you to grow and learn with each practice, little by little working harder but also more calmly.


With you in mind we have put together some information to help introduce you to this style of practicing, including what benefits you might experience and what to do to prepare and enjoy your first class at Hot Yoga Newcastle.  If you can dedicate yourself to 2-3 classes a week, you will see amazing progress in just a few weeks, we promise you.


If there is anything else you would like to know, please feel free to contact us directly and we will be happy to answer any questions you have.

Can I book a class?

Yes, of course you can! We would love you to join us for your first class, and many more classes in the future.


To book your first class with us you can use our website or our GloFox app, and find the best class time for you.  You can also call us directly, or drop into the studio and come and see us.

Do I need anything special?

You don’t need much, or anything fancy, for your first class.  You will want to wear some comfortable clothing, women tend to wear leggings or cycling style shorts and sports top, and men tend to wear shorts and a t-shirt based on their personal preference.


All of our classes include the use of a yoga mat, but you are welcome to bring and use your own if you have one.  If you are using a studio mat, you will want a towel to cover the mat during your practice, a beach towel or a large bath towel will work fine.  We do also have towels available for rent at the studio.


Finally you will want to bring a bottle of water to stay hydrated during your class, and your excitement to get sweaty!

Tips for your first class
Be hydrated

Being prepared will mean you have a more enjoyable class, so make sure to drink water throughout the day before your class.  Little and often will help your body be hydrated enough before you step into the studio.  Make sure to bring a bottle of water to sip on during class also.


Be early

Try to arrive at least 15-20 minutes early for your first class, so we can show you around the studio, discuss what your first class will be like, and complete any paperwork we need to before you start.


Dress well

You will want to be dressed appropriately, in comfortable sports clothing, that is not loose fitting.  Women tend to wear sports leggings or shorts and sports tops, while men prefer sports shorts and optional t-shirt (based on preference)

Enjoy your class

Your teacher is there to help you as they lead the class.  Follow along as much as you are able, taking breaks if you need them.  Let your body adjust to the heat and do not push yourself, remember the heat can take a class or two to get adjusted to. 

At the end of your class, don’t rush away.  Enjoy the final savasana if you have a few minutes to spare.  You will feel amazing afterwards.



After your class it is just as important to hydrate your body.  You will have sweat a lot, so drinking something with electrolytes, such as coconut water, is a great way to treat your body.

You are more than welcome to ask any of our teachers any questions that you might have after your class, as well as book yourself in for your next class so that you can start seeing and feeling the benefits of your new hot yoga practice.
