Yoga:  Warm Classes

Welcome to healing and connection.  By committing to your yoga practice you will notice an increased sense of presence, wellness, and mindfulness - as calm infuses into your life on so many levels.

Looking to try yoga with heat - but have some reservation about starting with a hot class?  Our classes designated as "warm" are held in a gently-heated room between 80-85 degrees Fahrenheit.  For your health and enjoyment, we use state-of-the-art infrared heat in all warm and hot classes.  Check out the benefits of our heating system by clicking here: INFRARED HEAT.

Safety Precautions

Heated yoga classes are not for everyone. Be sure you check with your doctor before trying any type of heated yoga if you have any health concerns.

If you have heart disease, problems with dehydration or heat intolerance, or have had heat-related illness (such as heatstroke) in the past, it is probably best to skip hot yoga. Pregnant women should receive clearance from their physician before taking heated yoga classes.

If you have no health concerns and you want to try a hot yoga class, be sure to drink plenty of water, stop if you feel dizzy, lightheaded or sick in any way - please always feel free to leave the room for a breath of cool air.  Always listen to your body

Most of the classes we teach offer consist of Hatha and Vinyasa (Flow) yoga principles.  Our teachers draw from diverse backgrounds including Ashtanga, Iyengar, Baptiste, Bikram, and more.  We offer a unique breadth of experience as our instructors come from an eclectic mix of backgrounds.  They bring ideas and teachings from several different schools.  

Ready to regain your flexibility and feel and be stronger? A great class is built around listening to your body, and honoring the messages that is sends.  No expectations, just surrender!

We believe that every practitioner has his or her own valid reason to step on the mat, and we respect each person's individual experience.  We encourage you to adjust or modify your practice as you see fit.
