Heat / Humidity

Our hot studio is kept at 102 degrees and 40 percent humidity. It can take up to five classes to find where your edge really is with the hot practice. We encourage beginners to learn this about themselves gently by taking it easy for up to five classes to allow their bodies to acclimate.

What To Expect

We all deal with the heat in different ways. If you feel tired, dizzy or short of breath, we encourage you to pace yourself and even lie down on your mat for a few poses. You’ll find that each time you return, you feel capable of doing more.

Frequently Asked Questions:

u

Why is the room heated?

The heat and humidity allow the musculature to open more and sweating allows for a release of toxins from the body. Heat also increases the cardio component of a yoga practice.
u

How should I prepare for my class?

Drink lots of water in the hours beforehand and make sure you don’t eat a big meal just before you come, as with any exercise practice.
u

Isn't this going to be really hard?

We promise, you’re going to love it! The key is in finding your pace. The truth is, hot yoga practice is addictive. Once you experience the flow of your practice in our heated room, you may never go back.
