ENRG Hot Yoga offers a friendly and welcoming approach to helping beginners up to advanced students to learn and practice yoga. We strive to make our classes enjoyable to everyone who wishes to practice while also ensuring our members get the most out of each class. Hot yoga combines the benefits of yoga with those of Far-Infra-Red heat. Practicing yoga in a heated environment assists the muscles to warm up and open more quickly which allows you to deepen your range in each posture, therefore increasing the function of our body’s internal health. Far-Infra-Red heat is easier for the body to tolerate and may have other health benefits. We strongly believe that the practice of yoga brings great benefits to the body and mind. The room is set in-between 35 and 40 degrees to help you sweat, detoxify, and deepen your practice, challenging and nurturing you in a different way each time you practice.
At ENRG we currently offer Vinyasa (flow) Yoga.
What to Wear ?
Yoga involves a lot of movement, so wear something that you are comfortable in and that allows you to move and flow from one pose to another. Yoga focuses on calmness, control and flexibility, so clothing should not interfere with achieving those goals. It should provide a comfortable “second skin” that permits viewing alignment and making postural adjustments as needed. Unrestricted movement is the most important factor when selecting bottoms, so ensure the material is form fitting yet comfortable and does not require adjustment while attempting to hold poses.
What to bring ?
Yoga Mat, A Towel, Water Bottle
Everything else can be locked away in the change rooms or left outside the yoga room in a cupboard. Please don’t bring any other items into the hot yoga room.
What to expect ?
The room is heated with Far-Infra-Red heating panels from above. You can find a lot more information about Far-Infra-Red online. The panels heat up bodies instead of space and warm you up from the inside out. Far-Infra-Red is said to be helpful against joint pains or injuries and has other healing properties. The temperature in the room varies between 35 and 40 degrees. Each teacher has their own unique blend of yoga which might include breathing practices, meditation, asana (postures), Vinyasa (flows), philosophy and even chanting. You can find out more on the teacher profiles.
Can everybody practice hot yoga?
Yes, most people are fine in a heated room. Hot yoga should be avoided by people with high blood pressure and during pregnancy.
How long should I wait after eating, before practicing yoga?
Two to three hours after you eat is generally when you have an empty stomach and it is okay to practice yoga. If you are starving and want to practice yoga but need some nourishment it’s fine to eat something little, light and easy to digest to sustain you through the practice.
What can and can't pregnant women do in yoga?
If you had a solid practice before your pregnancy, feel free to commence. If you are relatively new to yoga, start your practice after week 12 to be on the safe side. Practicing in a heated room is not recommended during pregnancy! When coming to a regular yoga class, make sure you talk to the teacher first and let him or her know you are pregnant and which week. Your teacher will then guide you safely through the practice and give you modifications when needed.
