For everyone that has contacted us about wanting to start their hot yoga journey, the time is now here. We are proud to have opened our temporary studio space at The Clothworks Business Centre in Heaton. While we are only here temporarily our studio is still more than just an empty room. We have created a space to offer the best level of classes for anyone wanting to practice with us.
Many hot yoga studios use traditional fan heating systems to heat them. These can create uneven temperature levels and waves of hot and cold air which can be unpleasant during your practice. Fan heaters also increase the humidity in a room and circulate pollutants. This can create a stuffy environment which can affect your breathing during practice.
We have chosen to use infrared (IR) heating panels instead of fan heaters. IR panels work by radiating heat to heat objects , such as practitioners in the studio, rather than the air around them. This provides a more consistent heat, warming the body from the inside out. This in turn creates a superior hot yoga experience by simulating a natural hot and dry environment. Rather than practicing in a suffocating atmosphere, the air feels clean, leaving you feeling soothed and revitalised.
In addition to our heater panels, we have also have full height mirrors on our walls to allow you to see your practice and to be able to align your postures to truly gain the benefits from the class. All classes include the use of studio mats, and we have mat towels available for rent if you don’t have your own.
Don’t think this is where we stop though. We have been working in the background to create our perfect permanent studio. We were hoping to have this completed in the first part of 2020, however the current UK lockdown has extended our timeline slightly, but don’t fret, we are still working away! While we work closely with architects and builders to get everything up and running we will be posting updates over our various social media platforms as things happen.
We look forward to practicing with you, whether it is at our temporary studio, or when we open our larger studio.
Let’s sweat, pet!
