Hot Yoga is similar to other yoga classes, but takes place in a space heated to approximately 90-95 degrees. The intense nature of hot yoga is a great choice for the cold, sluggish winter months—wonderfully rejuvenating, and a great way to reset if you feel a little bit out of sorts after the holidays. And Hot Yoga feels especially delicious on those grey, icy days when you can’t seem to get warm!

Hot Yoga has all the benefits of any other regular yoga practice, and the hot environment helps you to deepen the poses and to be fully present in your body. If you’ve never tried Hot Yoga before, remember to hydrate—and it helps to bring a towel!
