Our Hot Yoga 26 class is the original form of Hot Yoga, the Bikram series of 26 postures and 2 breathing exercises. Suitable for all levels, our classes are either 90 mins, 75 or 60 minutes and are taught in a room heated to approximately 40°C. All Hot Lotus Hot Yoga 26 teachers have trained with The Bikram Yoga College of India.
The Bikram Series systematically works every muscle, tendon, joint, ligament, organ and gland. It also moves oxygenated blood to the cells of your body. By the end of the class, you’ll feel rejuvenated and re-energized.
The sequence of 26 postures was scientifically designed to systematically and progressively work every muscle, ligament, tendon and joint, moving fresh oxygenated blood around 100% of the body, into each and every organ and fibre, restoring all systems.
We practise the same postures every time, actively encouraging you to maintain and improve focus, stimulating and improving a mind-body connection.
Every posture prepares you for the next, and each proceeding posture gains from the previous one, resulting in incredible benefits that include improved posture, muscle and joint mobility, concentration, increased energy, and overall rejuvenation.
