All of our Hot Yoga classes are Mindful Flow Hatha yoga
We warm the room to around 30-32 degrees. You will sweat! This warmth allows you to safely stretch your muscles, burn a lot of energy and leave with glowing skin and feeling amazing. The body responds well to the heated room; the muscles relax and you will feel more flexible. The heat intensifies the practice and it becomes more of a cardiovascular workout. We have a choice of 60 and 75-minute classes.
The skin, as the body's largest organ, is designed to sweat and this process is a healthy way to move fluid through our system. Regular hot yoga is also a great way to maintain a healthy body weight.
We welcome beginners to all of our yoga classes and hot yoga is a brilliant start as it will naturally make you feel more flexible. Since we opened in 2014 over 80% of our new students have never tried yoga before, we are all beginners every morning and each student can practise at their own pace, rest when they need to, and choose modifications that are right for their own body and fitness level.
If you prefer a dedicated beginner class we also run two four-week courses for absolute beginners, starting on the first Thursday and first Saturday of each month. We also have two warm classes, on Mondays and Wednesdays, suitable for all but especially beginners and those who are looking for a more gentle alternative to our regular hot classes.
Our mats are free to use but for hygiene reasons please use a towel that completely covers the mat. We rent mat towels at reception for £2.
We also sell yoga mat towels.
If you practice regularly it is worth investing in a yoga mat towel. We sell good quality, non-slip towels that last for many years in a range of colours.
Please make sure you are well hydrated before coming to hot yoga.
A yin practice is the perfect balance to the dynamic, hot yoga classes. The room is not hot; the postures are held for longer and the focus is drawn within. As you remain in the pose for between 3-5 minutes, the muscles relax and the focus is on the ligaments and the alignment of your bones. This practice has been referred to as Acupuncture with out the needles. The energy pathways in the body are cleared and opened, this leads to healing and a feeling of deep relaxation.

Beginners Yoga 4 Week Course
If you are brand new to yoga, or have very little experience, this class is just for you. Designed to introduce you to the postures and transitions that feature in the classes here at Be-yoga, each week will also include a taster of the different styles of yoga here including Yin, Restorative and Nidra, as well as an introduction to breath work (Pranayama). The room is warm, and class numbers are kept small to allow for more individual attention and for questions to be answered. The course builds over 4 weeks to give students a grounding to take into the regular hot classes. These courses run regularly on Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings.
Another quiet and slower practice, restorative yoga- as the name would suggest- is a practice to restore and revive you, postures are held while seated or lying down.
'Samadhi’ means ‘deep concentration through meditation’. In this vinyasa class you will synchronise your breath and movement, using deep meditation to create an inner balance.

Suitable for improvers through to intermediate level. Modification and variations will be given to suit your body and your practice. However this is a challenging class so expect to work hard and sweat.
