Bikram Yoga is the first time you start loving yourself, because it's the first time you start seeing yourself

Focus on strength, balance & flexibility

 

Yoga has a never ending list of benefits for both your body and your mind.  So many in fact, that more and more people are turning to it as a form of regular exercise. 

We have put together some of the benefits that you might experience practicing hot yoga with us;

 

Improves your flexibility

In a heated environment, such as our studio, we allow our muscles to warm up quicker and be more relaxed when we start our practice.  This means you can stretch a little further and achieve a greater range of motion.

 

Burn more calories

It isn’t a HIIT class or Crossfit, but the way we move through and hold postures does stimulate our metabolic system.  We bring our heart rate up and bring our body into a state where it starts to burn calories more readily.

 

Reduce stress and eases depression

The focus we use during our practice helps to clear the mind.   While the stimulation of our nervous system helps to balance our hormones.

 

Nourishes your skin

One of the benefits of sweating in a warm environment is that it can improve circulation, bringing oxygen- and nutrient-rich blood to skin cells. This, in turn, may help to nourish your skin from the inside.

 

 

As well as building bone density, improving concentration, lowering heart rate, and increased fitness…the list is endless.
 
We promise yoga will help you to live a longer and happier life.

express twenty six

Because we know life can get busy from time to time making it hard to get your hot yoga fix, we bring you our express hot twenty six practice.  This class offers you the challenge of a slightly faster paced practice while still giving you exactly the same sequence, same heat, same benefits, just done in 60 minutes rather than the normal 90 minutes.
 

While not a requirement, if you are new to hot twenty six we recommend trying a few of the original 90 minute classes first so that you can have a little bit more time to learn each of the postures, which will make this class more enjoyable.

 

Duration: 60 minutes

Suitable for: all ages and levels of experience

Key Benefits:

All of the same as our classic 26 class but in a shortened practice
