Yoga can benefit anyone, whatever their body shape, level of fitness, flexibility and stage of life.

At Hot Lotus we offer a range of Pilates classes to suit your level of fitness and ability. Body Control Pilates (coming soon) mat-based classes and Inferno Hot Pilates classes are suitable for beginners and will strengthen your core, improve posture, and tone and lengthen your muscles. Inferno Hot Pilates is a workout that incorporates Pilates principles in a heated room – it will bring on a sweat!
Aerial Yoga uses a hammock to support, either fully or partially, your weight whilst working on traditional Yoga postures. This can enable you to achieve advanced Yoga postures that can take years to develop without the hammock as well as experiencing the benefits for the body by hanging upside down, which is great for the spine as well as building confidence.
Barre is the hot new workout spreading the globe, combining ballet with Yoga and the principles of Pilates. Practised in an unheated environment this non-stop class is done to the beat of the music and is a low impact, total body workout that will lift your butt, tone the thighs, flatten your abs and sculpt your waist whilst protecting your joints.
