  • Down Dog Hot Yoga Philosophy

    Down Dog Hot Yoga is the most complete workout you can get!

    Down dog hot yoga’s flow provides an intense workout, burns fat (500-1,000 calories per class), increases your metabolism and tones every muscle of the body.

    Down Dog Hot Yoga is appropriate for all levels of yoga students, from someone who has never been to yoga, to the experienced yogi. You do not need to be flexible or in great shape to enjoy the benefits of a great yoga workout.

    New students are given special attention, helping them learn the flow of class (which will come naturally over time) and are taught easier variations of poses and resting poses to utilize until they get comfortable with the flow.

    At the same time those who can and want to go with the flow from beginning to end are assured of an intense cardio workout along with the other benefits of hot yoga.

    Benefits of Hot Yoga
    Helps increase metabolism for weight control
    Cleanses the body
    Calms the mind
    Relieves and cures neck, back and other injuries
    Increases spine, joint and muscle flexibility
    Slows down the aging process

  • Down Dog Hot Yoga Class Description

    Classes start out gently, easing the body into the practice and focusing the mind on breathing. As the pace picks up there are resting poses and easier modifications of poses that your instructor will help you with until you are comfortable with the flow.

    Even experienced yogis often take modifications and resting poses. Beginners will also get direction from the instructors during class, who will also be available after class to answer questions.

  • Our Policies & Suggestions

    A light snack a few hours before yoga is good, but you should try to avoid eating large meals within 3-4 hours of your class.

    Wear proper attire for a hot yoga class: loose fitting workout clothes. Yoga is practiced in bare feet. Bring a change of clothes for after hot yoga as you will sweat and may not want to wear those sweaty clothes home, especially in the winter. Come to class at least 10 minutes early so you can use the washroom, change and find a spot in studio without rushing.

    Bring a water bottle and a towel. Again, you will sweat in hot yoga. If you do not have a water bottle or towel we sell water and rent towels and mats at the studio. Mats are for sale as well. Both mats and water are free for your first class.

    Please be respectful of others in the studio: Use proper hygiene around the studio and clean up after yourself after class. The studio portion of the facility is a quiet place for focused yoga practice. Please have conversations with friends and acquaintances in the lobby area.

    Do not force your body into positions or push a pose to the point of physical pain. This will only cause injuries. Improvement comes with practice over time.

    New students set up in the back of class so you can see other more experience students perform poses. If you have any injuries or chronic joint issues, inform your instructor at the beginning of class so they can help you with the poses that might cause problems until you become familiar with them and your body. I have had lower back pain my whole life, but as long as I do yoga properly I have far fewer back problems than I had before starting yoga.

    JUST SHOW UP! It’s the hardest part of yoga. You will be glad you did!
