A new take on hot yoga. This class is geared toward the needs of the students attending. Whether the focus is core work, back strengthening,shoulder mobility or hip openers, students can request what they want to work on that night. If no preference is stated then we target overall mobility and flexibility for a specific area of the body that changes week to week. Room temp typically does not go past 85 degrees.

“The benefits of a hot yoga class are plentiful but certain medical conditions are contraindicated. Please check with you physician if you have any questions regarding this style of yoga practice.”

‘Ha’ means sun and ‘tha’ stands for moon, so the practice of Hatha yoga balances the lunar and solar energies in the body.

With a moderate pace and warm temperature, all levels will benefit from this class.

No previous yoga experience is required as movements are done in a slow restorative healing manner. Because participants need space to stretch out fully on the floor in all directions, class size is limited to 7. This is on a “first come, first served” basis. We do not take reservations. Doors open at 5pm. Participants are welcome to come then.

SUNDAY
Sunday Hot
10:00-11:30 am
Moderate Pace
SUNDAY HOT! is the sweaty detox you’ve been waiting for to finish the weekend strong and start the work week revitalized. This class starts slowly to allow participants to acclimate to the heat but gains momentum quickly with “Hot Pilates”, (a deep toning of abdominal and back muscles). It then progresses to challenging this core strength with flexibility and full body strength developed through “Hot Yoga Flow”. The class then slows once again to release any built up tension with deep stretches, held for several breaths and ends with a guided body scan meditation and final relaxation.Please do not practice SUNDAY HOT! if you are pregnant, have high blood pressure or are recovering from a recent injury.
