So yoga is already great, everyone knows that. Not only does it improve your flexibility, perfects your posture and increases your blood flow, but it’s incredible for your mental health too. Hot Yoga Life incorporates these amazing benefits and then flips it on its head.
Providing classes of three different temperatures – Hot, Warm and Unheated – no matter whether you’re a beginner who can barely get back up after sitting on the ground or you’re a yoga master who can achieve a Sleeping Yogi pose (look it up, it’s intense), you’ll find a class to make you sweat.
Give your body a workout as well as your spirituality, and get those summer vibes in check.
