Hot Yoga – Warm Yoga

Elevate HEAT / Elevate LIFE

Simply put it is yoga postures or “asanas” practiced in a heated room, typically ranging from 85-105 degrees. Warm yoga is a variation of hot yoga where the room is kept at a lower temperature. Hot yoga is practiced around the world and you may have heard of some of the more common forms called Bikram and Barkan. Each class follows a sequence of poses quickly creating familiarity and building confidence within your practice. Our instructors offer variations of postures to meet everyone’s needs.

We combine a variety of yoga styles including vinyasa or flow, yin, power, and core, which are paced and choreographed in ways so that each class offers you a completely different experience. We also like to mix things up and won’t let your practice grow stagnant, as we change the content and flow periodically.

Let the HEAT be your friend. Make peace with it. For our hot yoga classes, the studio is heated between 90 and 95 degrees with an approximate humidity of 40%. But don’t be intimidated, the heat is there to support and enhance your experience. There are many benefits to practicing yoga in a heated room such as:

  • Increased circulation to your muscles allowing for greater flexibility, which aids in lengthening your muscles and helps to prevent injury.
  • Increased heart rate which deepens your cardiovascular workout.
  • Enhanced vasodilation so that more blood (oxygen) is delivered to your muscles, joints, and endocrine, thyroid, and lymphatic systems, bringing a natural healing and balance back to your body.
  • Increased sweating which helps to detoxify your body by flushing toxins from your blood, and metabolic waste from your muscles.
  • Faster break down of glucose and fatty acids.

So what are you waiting for? Hot yoga is a great workout that will improve your overall health! Practice with us and ELEVATE your life!

Yoga Flow

Elevate FLOW / Elevate LIFE

Each position held by the body is joined through rhythmic breathing. Altogether, flow yoga creates strength and energy in the body. This form of yoga is very popular in Western culture. Today, many eating disorder residential programs, drug rehab facilities, and trauma treatment centers offer flow yoga as a part of their program.

Yoga is considered a type of exercise. In fact, flow yoga offers a wide variety of benefits including higher levels of strength, increased self-esteem, and a greater range of flexibility.

Flow yoga is performed best when proper breathing techniques are incorporated. Deep breathing helps to provide a relaxed, centered state and creates the “flow” connection to your postures.

  • Since I am new to yoga, I didn’t exactly know what to expect. As a runner, you always like to find something to do on your off days that will make you stronger and will compliment your running… I BELIEVE I HAVE FOUND IT!! Thank you Loft Studio!!

    Emily Nelson, Running Freak
  • After two classes at Loft Studio, I am hooked! I have taken yoga classes in a variety of locations for the past 10-years, and this place is special. The natural light, casual atmosphere, and culture of respect for wherever I am in my practice, my fitness journey, and in my head feeds my growing need for unjudgemental acceptance and honor of my body and thoughts. Thank you Loft Studio!

  • Thank you for offering a 5:30 AM class, it allows me the opportunity to get an awesome yoga class in, and still be at work before 7:00 AM. Great mix of flow and core.

  • As a 54 year-old mountain biker, Hannah’s yoga instruction has become a vital part of my exercise regimen. I’ve found that there is no better way than yoga to undo the aches and pains of aging. Male or female, and whatever your age or experience level may be, the instructors at Loft Studio will challenge and gently guide you along your yoga path. Try it once, and you will be hooked!
