You may be thinking about trying a Hot Yoga class with us but have some questions…
20140718-181729-65849035.jpg

I’ve Heard People Often Faint!
Many people find their first class is Horrible !
their second is OK and their third Good. But even if you struggle and have to rest or leave the room to cool down you will feel better and better in yourself. That’s why people get hooked, even if they’re not particularly bendy.
You will feel very, very hot. You may feel a bit tingly, dizzy or light headed. If you do, sit or lie down, ask for help or make your way into a cooler area.

Do I Need To Be Good At Yoga?
No, you can be a complete beginner. Obviously if you do other fitness training or sport you’ll be bodily aware and be able to find positioned a bit quicker.
Everyone in class will find restrictions and tight areas in their body, but remember ‘Practise makes perfect’ most important these sessions are YOUR practise. There is no Right or Wrong way to do Yoga – just a better way to work towards.

How Long Till I Feel Good At Hot Yoga?
Bikram beginners yoga class is a real barometer on how well you are caring for your body. Many factors affect your class, including diet, hydration, sleep, and stress. Hydration includes water and electrolytes I use Coconut water in the hours leading up to a class. You may learn the hard way that caffene affects your hydration, two cups of coffee and a Red Bull before class just won’t do it!
When you know you’re are coming to Hot Yoga you must prepare the day before.

Is Hot Yoga Dangerous?
Danger is living your whole life ignoring the signals your body gives you. Bikram yoga helps you become aware of those signals. It’s not about being tougher than someone else. Don’t go into a posture so deeply that it generates sharp pain. Focus on your breathing throughout evey posture. Discover which muscles you can relax in each position. And always remember that the most important posture is Corpse Pose.

How Often Should I Practise?
Do ten classes and you will be amazed at the results. Practice for a year and your life will be transformed.
I teach 4 times a week and really feel the difference in my other training if I miss my deep stretch- if I could I’d teach Hot Yoga more than once each week – maybe if you want more we can do that for you?

20140718-182815-66495555.jpg

Will There Be Chanting or Meditation?
NO – is the short answer. My background is in Fitness, Teacher Training and definitely NOT Chakras, Oriental Medicine or making wild health claims for specific poses. If you decide to include these areas of Yoga in your practise that’s completely fine.
I see my role is making this fabulous movement method relevant and valuable to as many people as possible.

We look forward to helping you get the best out of each session – remember if you want help in class – Call Out! If you have a question – Just Ask…

Tips Before You Start Hot Yoga

Hot Yoga Tips #1
Bring to class: a water bottle, a beach-size towel, and your yoga mat ( although we have a nice padded floor- so don’t worry if you don’t have one)

20140718-193345-70425377.jpg

Hot Yoga Tips #2
Wear lightweight, form-fitting clothes. Women typically wear shorts, a sports bra, and a tank top and men usually wear shorts and a tank top or go shirtless.

20140718-195321-71601624.jpg
Hot Yoga Tips #3
No mobile phones on the mat. Secure your phone and keys in lockers.

Hot Yoga Tips #4
Drink plenty of water, including an extra litre on the day of class. Try coconut water.

20140718-194052-70852198.jpg

Hot Yoga Tips #5
Avoid eating heavy foods in the two hours prior to your class. It is best to come on an empty stomach.

20140718-200052-72052836.jpg

You need to balance your Yin & Yang. All hard training will wear you out – you need to stretch, release and re mobilise to find a healthy balance.

Shocker – Your Exercise Program Might Cause Cellulite!

Eat right and train Smart to avoid this....

Eat right and train Smart to avoid this….

Bear with me though, because there is light at the end of the tunnel. Or smoothness at the end of the dimples.

If you’re like most women, you focus on cardio for your fat-burning exercise. You think more and longer must be better. It’s a fair argument – until you understand the facts.

I hate to break it to you, but doing long cardio does not necessarily keep fat and cellulite at bay. In fact, hours of riding the exercise bike or running the treadmill actually ENCOURAGES muscle loss and stubborn fat storage.

Look at Lisa – Lisa was an avid runner, competing in endurance events like triathlons on a regular basis. Yet, she still couldn’t budge the fat from her lower body. After some simple but essential changes to her training routine, her shape changed remarkably. lisa b4 and after

Lean shapely muscle is vitally important to create a pleasing, balanced figure. This unsightly fat rests on top of muscle, and if the muscle is weak and soft, it will significantly contribute to the ‘bumpy’ effect of cellulite.

So, the right exercises will improve muscle tone and boost metabolism  shrinking fat cells fast.

So, what if you’re already doing resistance training but still have a soft, dimpled bum?

Good question.

If you have a desk job, you might already suffer from lower back or hip pain. It’s likely that you have very weak glutes.

It happens over a period of time from a combination of things like long periods of sitting, poor posture, incorrect lifting form and badly designed workouts, you know the ones that go on for 45mins plus and you can read or chat while doing them (useless and probably harmful)

So if you want to kiss cellulite and stubborn fat pockets goodbye, performing strategically programmed exercises in the right COMBINATIONS at the right TIMES is a must. There are 3 major keys you MUST take into account if you want to reduce and eliminate cellulite. The ‘secret’ to the success of my Smart Training System is my Metabolic Training methods that address all 3 issues in every workout session.

My Nutritional Coaching will teach you to eat clean and get the most from your training.  It’s important to adjust your food intake as your training progresses. The right plan will never leave you hungry, grumpy or bored with your meals.
