Hot Yoga is a form of moderate exercise & is often associated with the style devised by Bikram Choudhury. The temperature of the room varies typically between 30 °C and 40 °C with up to 40% humidity. While doing hot yoga, your body is producing sweat because of the extremities of the temperatures.
Hot Yoga involves both static holds and flow, which both lengthens and contracts specific muscle groups. Hot Yoga can be used for a variety of different reasons: to improve flexibility, suppleness, relaxation, meditation, recovery from injury or recovery from more physically intense activity.
No matter the reasons, hot yoga as exploded in popularity since the early 2000’s & is no longer considered an exclusively female endeavour.
Many of our yoga practitioners come from various backgrounds including GAA, Triathlon, Running, CrossFit and recreational physical activity. We use many variations of poses & flows during our classes which help teach balance, unilateral strength & mastery of simple movements.
How Do I Start?
Go to the timetable on our website and click on “Try a Free Class” option and follow the steps from there.
We also understand how intimidating it can be to join a new class, for this reason we cap each class with a maximum number of people to ensure each coach knows each client and their strength & weaknesses.
This enables them to recognise new members, integrate them safely into the class environment and help guide them around the class for maximum effectiveness & enjoyment.
If you are unsure of what each class entails or the type of clothing required, how much water or if you need to bring mats & towels please just drop us a message on any social media platform, email or phone.
