Hot Yoga

Curious as to anyone here taking Hot Yoga classes? Thinking about incorporating Hot Yoga at least once a week, then maybe more as I get into it.

Any particular locations people found to have a good instructor at?

I used to go to the hot yoga studio in Coquitlam BUT it's definitely not for everyone. Do you do yoga already? I would not recommend it for a beginner but instead suggest taking some classes until you hit your limit and THEN switch to hot classes (cause you can get more bendy in a hot class).

There are several variations of hot yoga. Bikram's being the more popular, yet tougher one. Places like Yyoga also offer their own variation. If you go with Yyoga you could try their other types of yoga as well.

In Vancouver, I'd recommend Bikram Vancouver, either their West end or Kits locations as their teachers rotate back and forth between the two. Kits is the bigger location though.

Just give it a try, most yoga places offer 2 weeks for $30 or something similar.

I've done Hot Yoga a few times last year, but am currently doing Yoga at home from P90X. The first time I tried Hot Yoga was too intense, I literally almost passed out near the end of the session lol.

Yeah that's exactly what I mean.
You might find you get a better work out in a regular yoga class with out the heat. But if you're out this way and you want hot there's a Bikram's studio on Lougheed in Coquitlam by the Superstore that's pretty good. There's a fantastic non hot Yoga studio in Ioco (I can't remember it's name off hand).

If you're more Vancouver ward there's Yyoga as Evil there suggested.

Yyoga is a great place to start, I personally find it better than Bikrams.

2 weeks for 30, mat, towel and mat cover provided for the 2 weeks too. Just make sure you bring your water.

Been doing hot yoga for 2 years now, great workout and you honestly feel great after.

Oh yeah, Bikram Richmond has complimentary mat and towel every time you go. It's where I go, which is like once every few months these days.

last year I was looking for alternatives to get in shape and did a week stint doing bikram's and it was FANTASTIC.

I went everyday for a week and after that 1 week I noticed a huge increase in flexibility, muscle relaxation and just a huge increase in generally feeling good. The thought behind the heat is muscles work better warmed up.

Also various sports teams have been incorporating bikram's into their training schedules. Pretty much the reason I went and tried it out.

My first yoga class was at Westcoast Hot Yoga in Yaletown. I was a total noob, wore sweat pants in a 40 degree room.

I can't do all the poses but it was fun. Good workout and the aftersore feels great.

Then I went to some place in gastown. Did flow and candlelight thing. Flow is much better. Those relaxation ones are a waste of time. It's like an orgy minus the sex.

I'm on a yoga class schedule for rugby, and upon starting it at yyoga within two weeks I had already seen improvement in athletic performance. At yyoga the hot yoga classes are not too difficult at all and it is beginner friendly. Once you are comfortable with it you can try power yoga which is hot yoga but working on a lot of elevated poses.

Yeap! That's the first one I've been to as well. Nice facility and the people who take the classes there were extremely helpful and social. I couldn't do half the stuff and the instructor knew. But he was helpful as well.

I go to the Bikram Yoga in Lansdowne Centre (Richmond). They have pretty flexible schedules and wide variety of coaches you can choose from in different time and lessons.

There's another one at Boundary + Kingsway as well. On the 2nd floor. I went to these two places for hot yoga.

I'm content with the yoga at my gym (Steve Nash).

Pesonally, i hate doing yoga, but it helps me with my endurance training.....and theres a satisfactory amount of eye candy too.

I'm assuming hot yoga doesn't reduce boner visibility.

Hot yoga can increases and decrease boner visibility since all the girls are wearing next to nothing. That includes the hotties and fatties.
