Beginners and seasoned yogis alike are welcome at 105F - Chicago’s Original Hot Yoga. Here, instructors lead classes that are designed to lure students to their limits, providing a demanding physical challenge for all skill and fitness levels. Each of the three studio locations contains a practice room that is heated to 105 degrees with 40%–45% humidity, creating a sweat-inducing, tropical setting that aids practicers by loosening their muscles as they sink into each stretch.
The Smart60 and Original90 classes follow the same sequence of two breathing exercises and 26 standing and seated asanas, which use deep twists and bends to methodically work organ systems and muscle groups throughout the entire body. Instructors slowly guide students into poses and ensure that they can perform each asana at a level that safely challenges their limits. The intermediate NextLevel90 class guides students through salutations, inversions, hip openers, and arm balances. The work-shop style Focus90 class helps students receive personalized instruction, while the Yoga Nidra provides guided meditation. In addition, the Yin Yoga class offers a slow and gentle experience, with deep stretching and long holds. Continued practice can help yogis hone their strength and endurance while also learning to maintain a greater sense of focus and mind-body awareness, even in the face of physical distractions like another student's Sudoku puzzle back tattoo.
