We teach the Original Hot Yoga sequence (Bikram Yoga). It is an intense series of Hatha Yoga postures performed in a hot room. The sequence we teach is suitable for all levels and capabilities, including beginners. Many yogis began their yoga with hot yoga.
Practiced regularly, this hot yoga can bring many physical and emotional improvements to your body and mind. You might notice improved sleep, more flexibility in your body, stronger muscles, better mood, clearer skin and a general boost to your health and wellbeing.
The heat will improve your fitness as it causes the heart and lungs to work harder. You will stretch further, without injury, as the muscles are warmer and more able to stretch. You will see a progression when you practice hot yoga regularly. We call it your ‘yoga practice’.
The more you put into your yoga practice, the more you will get out of it. You will experience old injuries beginning to fade and increased energy levels. Sports people and those who attend the gym will notice that their muscles become less stiff.
It is best to come to class on an empty stomach. Please hydrate several hours before coming to class or drink more the night before for a morning class. You can bring water for inside the hot room, but little sips are best. Bring a towel for your mat and another for a shower, or you can hire these items at our studio.
Sam and Lou teach the online Hot Yoga classes on: Saturday morning, Monday early evening and Tuesday lunchtime. There are also two variations of the sequence. Lou's NYC 60 includes a couple of abdominal moves and flows some of the postures together for a fun, fast experience. Silent 45 is for those who already know the sequence as it has no dialogue - other than 'change'.
