We are very proud to bring you the first, professionally equipped, Hot Yoga studio in Northamptonshire. It gives us great pleasure to provide you with a state of the art heat and humidity system, with infrared panels that create natural heat up to 38* and maintaining 50% humidity whilst having a healthy oxygen flow throughout the room. No gimmicks or tricks, just 100% realness.
Hot yoga classes involve a sequence of poses designed to increase circulation, flexibility and strength, and improve cardiovascular health. The purpose is to replicate the heat and humidity of India where yoga originated. This style of yoga has many benefits: it increases serotonin levels (the happy hormone); burns calories; elevates metabolism; reduces stress; lowers cortisol levels; builds strength, endurance and muscle tone; improves posture; increases balance, coordination, focus and discipline; releases toxins, improves your lymphatic and strengthens the immune system.
You have to be a gymnast to do yoga - Go at your own pace and listen to your body. We can make adjustments where necessary.
There is no time for sleep in our yoga classes - Our classes are designed to keep your body moving through gentle transitions, so you still get a proper workout but you'll also feel relaxed while doing each exercise.
"I'm a man and men don't do yoga, that's only for women" - Yoga was originally formed in India for male soldiers to help them relax and prepare themselves for battle. Nowadays it is predominately a woman based exercise but many male celebrities and sportsman use yoga for injuries and to enhance their performance.
Yoga doesn't burn calories - If you thought yoga just consisted of breathing and slow movements/stretches, then you were wrong. Yoga can be considered quite a vigorous exercise, depending on the type of yoga class you choose. Hot yoga for example will make you sweat loads which helps burn those calories a lot faster.
Stereotype: Vegan/Tie-Dye/Ponchos/Chanting - We are trying to break this stereotype by offering a wide variety of yoga classes that are tailored for each and every age group and fitness level.
Thinking you're too much of a novice to try Yoga? - Yoga can be difficult but that is why we offer a beginner's yoga class. This way you can start from scratch and before you know it, you'll be a natural and possibly even try a more advanced yoga class.
Suitable for beginners right through to advanced practitioners. However it is not recommended for pregnant women as the extremely warm or humid studio conditions increase the risk of over-exhaustion, muscle injury, and cartilage and tissue damage. People with high blood pressure and children under the age of 16 are also advised not to take this class.
