FAQ

What if I'm not flexible?

Then this Yoga is for you! You do Hot Yoga to stretch your body and spine in order to increase your flexibility and strength. This yoga attracts all shapes, sizes and fitness levels. Anyone can do it!

Why is the room heated?

The room is heated to reduce the chance of injury by warming up your muscles and tendons, allowing you to stretch more, build muscle faster, and tone up quicker by sweating, and giving you a good cardio workout at the same time.

What should I bring?

Please bring a yoga mat if you have one, a large beach size towel, a bottle of water (no iced water!), and a change of clothes. We sell and rent yoga mats and we rent towels and sell bottled water at the studio. First class we will lend you a mat free of charge. Yoga mat usage is mandatory in class.

What should I wear?

Women should wear shorts or short tights and a sports bra or tank top. Men should wear shorts, short tights or a bathing suit. Remember - you'll be sweating so avoid long pants and loose clothes.

How long is class?

Hot Yoga Winnipeg’s Beginners Hatha Yoga class is 90 minutes in length. It is a two-part series. The first part consisting of a standing series, and then followed by a floor series.

How often should I come?

Come as often as you can. The time and effort you put into doing Hot Yoga will be returned to you tenfold. We recommend 3 or more times a week, especially in the beginning. Within four weeks you will see (and feel!) noticeable differences! If you buy an Unlimited Monthly pass, classes can cost less than $5 per class if you come frequently.

Can I eat before class?

You should come to class on an empty stomach. You should not have food for 2 to 3 hours before class. You can drink juice or eat fruits up to 1 hour before class.

What about water?

You should drink plenty of water every day. This is better than just drinking water before or during class. With Hot Yoga, you are simultaneously cleansing all the systems of your body from the inside out. It is important to stay hydrated so your elimination systems (bowel, urinary, and skin) can support your efforts.

What if I have injuries or illnesses?

Please let the teacher know if you have any injuries, illnesses, or special conditions. You can still do most yoga postures, with a few modifications that the teacher will show you. But most of all, you go at your own pace as you are your own teacher.
