What are the benefits of Yoga?
Yoga can help to improve flexibility, suppleness and strength. Yoga can also help with the ability to deal with stress and to increase relaxation. The body can experience complete energy alignment when performed on regular basis and with proper posture alignment.
Yoga is a very ancient spiritual practice and can transform your entire life if you are open to it. The practice of Yoga is a different experience every day.
How ‘hot’ is the Hot Studio?

What do I need to bring to a class?
You may bring a towel, water to drink, and a mat (or you can use ours). Wear very lightweight exercise clothing and bring a change of clothes for after class. You can count on getting sweaty 🙂
How should I prepare for class?
Drink plenty of water before, during and after the class. You sweat out toxic chemicals from your body. Also, make sure to not eat roughly 3 hours before class.
What if I have no experience in Yoga or I have an injury?
Perfect. Yoga is a great match for you AND everyone has to start somewhere! Yoga Asasa’s have been created for the beginner and the average person.
Persons with sickness or injuries are welcome too. This is a great chance to get to know your body and reflect on what is out of balance. That “out of balance” part of you has a huge contributing factor as to why you became injured in the first place. Please let you instructor know of any aliment before class.
How many times a week should I practice Yoga?
Honestly? Practice as much as you want. Practicing Yoga 3 to 5 times a week is the most beneficial.
What if I have to leave during class?
Let the teacher know. We often get nervous that we have scared you off when you run out of the room. It is more respectful to your environment and fellow students to communicate and it’s all good.
I thought Yoga was about Meditation?
