HOW WE HEAT OUR STUDIO
Our wonderful studio is enhanced with a state of the art FIR heating system, technology that has been used in saunas in Scandinavia for over 30 years, and has won multiple awards for its eco-friendly output.
We heat the studio to 37C for our 'Hot Align' and 'Hot Flow' classes, to help you sweat, detoxify and deepen your practice, challenging you in a different way each time you step onto your mat. 'Vinyasa' + ‘Jivamukti Yoga’ are practiced at 27C as these styles are faster paced than our heated classes, and we endeavour to link breath with flowing movement which assists in directing the flow of prana (life force/energy) through the body. Our 'Hatha' and 'Yin + Meditation' classes are also kept at a temperate 27C to keep you cosy whilst exploring longer, deeper held poses - a meditative approach by slowing down, and both a great way to start out your yoga practice, or to compliment more strenuous exercise.
FACILITIES + AMENITIES
Our on-site facilities include showers and changing rooms to ensure you can rinse off all your hard work quickly and head back into your day feeling refreshed, rejuvenated and energised from your practice.
We also have small retail offering with a selection of yoga accessories, drinks and snacks to keep you inspired and fuelled.
Why Hot Yoga?
Practicing yoga in a heated environment assists the muscles to warm up more quickly, allowing more easeful range in postures, assisting the function of the body and it’s holistic health. The heat encourages perspiration, aids in the elimination process of toxins through the body, and balances hormones, helping you to feel happy, open, and energised each time you practice.
Yoga in the heat increases cardiovascular activity and encourages fresh oxygenated blood and nutrients to circulate effectively through the body, without the strain on the joints that impact based exercise can induce.
The roots of Hot Yoga are derived from India and are most commonly associated with 'Bikram Yoga', which is a particular style of practice. The style we practice at Yoga Corner is a combination of different Hatha and Vinyasa Yoga styles.
