Redwood Hot Yoga in East York
Hot Yoga and Warm Yoga are hatha yoga (posture based yoga) in an above average heated room. At Redwood Hot Yoga our hot yoga classes are heated between 37°- 40° and our warm yoga classes are heated between 32° - 34°
Our yoga classes are a series of dynamic and static postures and breath exercises that work to stretch, strengthen and tone your whole body in a safe, low impact manner. You don't have to be already flexible to come to these classes, the heat will help improve your flexibility, and the more you practice you'll see an increase in your mobility in all aspects of your life not just yoga poses.
We are not a brand specific studio, meaning all of our teachers come from different yoga backgrounds. This ensures that each class will help you get a variety of movement for your body. No set sequences of poses here, we want you to explore movement with us, not restrict it. Since all our of teachers have a different styles, each class may have different yoga poses, different paces, and different focuses overall. It's a good idea when you first start at the studio to try out as many classes and teachers as you can to get the feel for it all!
Yoga Classes we offer:
These classes are non-flowing yoga classes that take the time to explore each pose. Due to the slower pace of these classes it gives us a chance to explore the use of props in the poses, and gives you the chance to learn the common yoga poses. They are offered as a hot class or warm class and are a great place to start if you're coming to hot yoga for the first time.
Yin Yoga is a class that helps you find some quiet time while getting some more focused stretch work in. This yoga class is based on passive stretching at or near your end range of your flexibility. It gives the muscles time to slowly creep through the stretch. The big challenge is trying to slow your thoughts down while you hold these poses for a longer period of time than most of the other classes.
Yoga Sculpt is where yoga, pilates and fitness fuse together. In this class we use light hand weights to help build up the strength of our joints and core to improve our stability, improve our mobility, and tone the body. Although this class is designed to use the hand weights, you can certainly come to class and not use weights if you'd prefer.
Slow Flow Yoga***
The slow flow yoga class is a hatha yoga class that links poses together into a flowing movement class. We still take the time in each pose to settle and feel what's happening in our bodies, but we don't tend to stay in a pose as long as we do in the other classes.
***NOTE: You need to be able to do at least 4 push ups in a row with good form for this class. If you cannot, please come to our Hatha Yoga or Yoga Sculpt classes to build the strength ****
