About the Hot Yoga

Harry teaches a dynamic sequence of 26 hatha yoga postures and 2 breathing exercises. This is either a 60 or 90 minute class and is based on the original Bikram format.

It is ideal for new and experienced students alike; each posture has an entry level to it and as the body opens up with continued practice, deeper and more advanced versions can be reached.

We do it in the heat! But not too much; the room is typically heated to around 30-35 degrees centigrade, limbering the muscles and allowing for deeper and safer stretching, opening up the body whilst not being overpowering and hindering your practice.

What is Hot Yoga?

Hot Enough to Limber but Not Too Hot to Hinder

Like any fitness program, if practiced incorrectly with a ‘no pain no gain’ approach, injury may occur; this is not yoga. At hot yoga with Harry you will be taught to work hard, to the edge of your physical and mental parameters in a safe manner, provided with modifications where necessary. You will be taught the mindful application of breath, strength, focus and stillness, enhancing the astonishing power of this hot hatha yoga sequence, a truly holistic approach to physical and mental fitness.

Not only will every muscle, joint, ligament and tendon in your body be worked but also every system in your body will be stimulated too:

Cardiovascular system

The heart rate is elevated in an initial warm-up sequence of postures and is further raised and lowered throughout the class thereafter, increasing your cardiovascular fitness over time. The heat causes the blood vessels to dilate, moving freshly oxygenated blood to every part of the body.

Central Nervous system

Breathing exercises and techniques along with bending the spine in all directions help to calm the central nervous system, reducing stress and anxiety. Physically working hard in a hot room in response to detailed commands forces an unparalleled mind-body connection producing increased mental clarity and focus.

Endocrine system

Every gland in your body is stimulated, improving metabolism, poor sleep-wake cycles, hormone imbalances, depression, sexual/reproductive health, blood sugar balance and detoxification through sweating.

Respiratory system

The breathing exercises use the lungs to their maximum capacity, which if practiced regularly will improve lung function and capability over time as well as detoxifying through the removal of metabolic waste through the breath.

Lymphatic system

Stimulation of the lymphatic system detoxifies and boosts the immune.
