Would you like time to breathe?

The focus on strength, balance & flexibility.

Hot 26

Hot 26 is often referred to as “Bikram Yoga,” known as the original hot yoga. A unique sequence of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises practiced in a heated room of 38 Cº for 90 minutes, was developed as yoga for everyone.  So if you are searching for beginner yoga classes hot yoga is great as students work and improve themselves and their practice through regular participation.  This makes it suitable for all ages and all levels of ability. The heat is used to allow a deeper safer stretch, prevent injury; some even claim the heat helps flush out all the unwanted toxins, while this has not been proven, we still love the way we feel after class!

 

A regular practice improves your strength, flexibility and balance, builds concentration, determination and patience, prevents illness and injury, limits the effect of aging, promotes weight loss, stress relief, mental clarity and an overall sense of well-being.

 

Be prepared to work hard, sweat and surprise yourself!

Useful Tips

  • Come to class hydrated. Drink 1.5l 2 hours before class.
  • Don’t come to class excessively full, but don’t come on an empty stomach either.  Your body needs fuel.
  • Sit down whenever you feel like it and take it easy at the start
  • Talk to the teacher before class. Tell them about any injuries, how you’re feeling or just introduce yourself.
  • You may feel dizzy during the first 20 min, this is normal.  Sit down, breath through your nose.  Drink more water next time and don’t come on an empty stomach.
  • Don’t wear bulky clothes.  They will make you hotter and get in the way of your practice.  General athletic shorts and top will work just fine.

Hot 50

Hot 50 is the perfect marriage between the structure of Hot 26, “Bikram Yoga” and  “traditional” flow beginners yoga classes.  Similar to Bikram Yoga, Hot 50 is conducted over 90 minutes at 38º C.  Hot 50 starts with the base Hot 26 sequence but substitutes several of the repleted sets with new postures to bring the total sequence to 50.  The addition of these new postures helps improve the flow of the class and implements several postures to target improving core strength.  This allows regular practitioners the same total body improvements as Hot 26, with the feel of a more ‘traditional’ yoga class.

 

Again, just like “Bikram Yoga” Hot 50 was designed for beginner yoga classes, where students can build upon their classes from one to the next, learn more about their own body and with regular practice work to see improvements no matter the level they start.

You’re never too old, never too bad, never too late and never too sick to start from the scratch once again.

Hot Core

If you’re not innovating then your falling behind.  Hot Yoga Newcastle developed our Hot Core class to help students who are looking to add additional strength to assist in other workouts.

Core strength is critical for maintaining good posture and proper alignment. Whether you love yoga, do sports or work out in the gym, this Flow yoga class will help you to develop upper body strength that can give you the stability you need for your healthy life. One of the larger differences between the Hot Core and other Hot Yoga classes is the room is a bit cooler, heated to 35º C to allow you to move confidently without sapping your energy.

Make sure to check our our other yoga classes to add with your Hot Core and improve your overall well-being.
