We encourage everyone to incorporate a yoga practice into their everyday lives. Heated Infrared yoga is a structured combination of postures pre-designed before each class to achieve a different outcome each time. Each movement is accompanied with a breath that promotes a moving meditation. The two breathing exercises with each posture stretches and strengthens the muscles. Hot yoga also stimulates the nervous system, glands and our organs. With breath, it creates movement of fresh oxygenated blood around the body that helps to restore and heal all of our systems to maintain our bodies in a constant state of mental and physical wellbeing.
The heating for hot yoga is made up of Far Infrared Ray (FIR) heating panels. FIR heat is a popular choice for hot yoga studios as it is a revolutionary form of thermal technology, which provides a safe and healthy heat for the practice of yoga. Scientifically proven to benefit those with physical injuries our silent heaters radiate luxurious warmth similar to the comfort you feel when you are standing outside on a warm sunny day. The heat penetrates deep into the body activating major bodily functions and firing up cellular metabolism. Not to be mistaken for ultraviolet light, which damages and burns the skin, far infrared technology is a natural light energy that is vital to your health and longevity.
Please note our classes are heated to a maximum of 26 degrees celsius so at to warm the muscles without stressing the body.
The benefits of FIR heating in yoga are:-
- Detoxification and elimination of fats, chemicals and toxins from the blood.
- Stimulation of enzyme and metabolism
- Increased cardiovascular fitness and calorie burning for controlling weight
- A strengthened immune system
- Lowered blood pressure and cholesterol
Features and functions of FIR heating are:-
- One hour in an intense FIR room burns over 900 calories by raising the metabolism and body temperature
- FIR heat breaks down cellulite, trapped water, fat and waste
- “Hot Yoga” offers a cardio workout while being subject to these rays, and it will burn significantly more calories than one with out heat.
- FIR expands capillaries which stimulates increased blood flow, regeneration, circulation and oxygenation.
- FIR promotes the killing of many pathogenic (disease causing) bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites.
- FIR promotes rebuilding of injured tissue by having a positive effect on the fibroblasts (connective tissue cells necessary for the repair of injury).

Yin is a class that offers a subtle practice to find balance and an opportunity to meditate whilst being able to relax. We recommend our students book into a Yin class at least once a week to find balance in their practice. Yin targets our bodies fascial tissue and energetic system. Both systems are an integral part of achieving unity across mind and body. We want to achieve a stillness of mind and body in the class.
