Renton Hot Yoga Classes
Our yoga classes combine the skills of concentration, patience, and self-control which leads to increased mental clarity and reduced stress. Developing a hot yoga practice can help you achieve total health through the balancing and strengthening of every system in the body. Hot yoga has been used to prevent illness, injury and to limit the effects of aging.
We hold our hot yoga classes in a heated room (85-105 degrees; 40% humidity) to warm your muscles, prevent injury, enable a deeper workout, and flush toxins. Classes are 60, 75, or 90-minute sessions. Each posture stretches and strengthens specific muscles, ligaments, and joints needed for the next.
Renton Hot Yoga welcomes new students daily. No experience is required. You can move at your own pace and rest as often as you like. We recommend you start slowly and rest sooner than you think you need. We are here to support you in any way we can; this is your yoga practice. All classes are designed for beginners — and yet can challenge advanced students.
We ask first-time students to create an account profile PRIOR to coming for their first session. Here is a link in MindBody to set that up.
