Hot Yoga on 20th

Hot Foundation

Suitable for all levels, this class is great for beginners.
Hot Yoga on 20th The room is heated to 102 degrees Fahrenheit (40 C) allowing muscles, ligaments and tendons to be warmed and stretched in a specific sequence.

Internal organs and glands are gently massaged and the heated room ensures that participants will enjoy a safer stretch and also have a good sweat. In this cardiovascular hot yoga class, fresh, oxygenated blood is brought into to every part of the body cleansing and rejuvenating the entire system.

In addition to the many physical benefits there are others as well. Increased concentration, willpower and mental clarity are just some changes that are commonly reported. In recent years medical doctors and psychiatrists have adopted yoga as a credible solution to various human ailments. Above the obvious physical benefits of hot yoga one can expect to gain a degree of mind serenity with regular practice. Having faith in oneself, improving self-control, determination, increased concentration, and building patience are some of the mental rewards that can be gained from doing yoga.

Hatha Yoga in a warm room focuses on a deep, safe and effective journey into yoga. Hatha Yoga postures are scientifically designed to give a comprehensive workout to the entire body.

Hot 26

Very similar to our Hot Foundation class, but with only 26 postures practiced twice each and two breathing exercises, in a room heated to 40 degrees C. The original Hot Yoga sequence as taught by Bikram Choudhury, and practiced by millions of people worldwide. Taught by Dallas who was trained by Bikram Choudhury, with many years experience teaching this style.




Yin Yang Yoga

Yin Yang Yoga, or the Dragon Flow, blends two styles of yoga into one practice - bringing together the benefits of passively holding yoga poses with more dynamic sequences and flowing movements.
Yin and Yang are the Taoist concepts which describe the two relative qualities present in everything. Yin is more internal, passive, cooling and downward. While Yang is more external, dynamic, warming and upward.
When these terms are applied to yoga, Yin Yoga is a slower practice where poses are passively held for longer, working on the deep, dense (Yin) connective tissues and joints in the body. Yang Yoga, in contrast, refers to a more active practice working on the (Yang) muscles and blood flow, building strength, stamina and flexibility.




Vinyasa Flow

This style is modeled after the ashtanga yoga classes in Mysore, India taught by the late Sri K. Pattabhi Jois. The meaning of Vinyasa is to synchronise your movement to your breath.

Staying in tune with your breathing will help you flow through the sequence of poses. Usually after a flowing warm up, there are a number of standing postures that you will hold for up to five breaths. Once the standing series is completed there is a floor series that will incorporate the Vinyasa flowing movements until you reach a final rest in Savasana.



Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga was developed by Paulie Zink as a method for deepening one’s flexibility. Postures are held much longer than in a regular yoga class, allowing the practitioner to get way deeper, stretching the fascia in passive poses. Targeting the connective tissue over time will lead to much greater flexibility. Staying in a pose for up to five minutes or longer can be very challenging both mentally and physically - the meditative benefits of this class are amazing. This is a great class for atheletes, runners and sports people who need more stretching time after a work out or those students with chronic tension who are looking for a restorative, gentle class in a quiet, supportive environment.
This class is in a warm environment (but not as hot as usual!)
