Why should I sweat?
The moisture in the air is the reason you will probably sweat quite a lot. We have experimented with different levels of heat and moisture and have found that it is the increased moisture in the air that is more likely to make you sweat! Many confuse this with the actual temperature. The more people in the room, the more moisture from our breath, the more we sweat. The studio has two humidifiers hydrostatically controlled and suitable for allergics as well, so the humidity doesn't get too low nor too high. Experts agree that the moisture level for optimal lung function for protection against colds, flu and other respiratory problems such as asthma is around the 60-70% mark. So enjoy the sweat! It is doing you so much good on so many different levels!

Can I do Hot yoga if I'm pregnant?
If you have been doing yoga regularly prior to your pregnancy, then you may continue with the pregnancy hot yoga exercises after your first trimester where you will avoid any pressure on your abdomen. If you are new to yoga or have not been doing Yoga just prior to your pregnancy, we recommend to join our Hot Yoga practice after you give birth. You can always ask one of your Hot yoga teachers for help and advice.
