At Hot Yoga Winnipeg, there's no such thing as a class for advanced students only. The instructors of every hot-yoga session welcome total beginners and returning students alike, guiding them through the same series of 26 poses. Adhering to the 90-minute sequence might sound monotonous, but the mix of Hatha-style stretches continually challenges yogis of all body types and skill levels. As the heat enables them to flex more easily, each stance prepares their relevant muscles to attempt the follow-up position, thereby progressively exercising the entire physique. While working out, sweat helps detoxify the body, leaving visitors feeling refreshed and content.
In addition to hot-yoga classes, the teaching team leads a number of course variants. Meditative music overlays the transitions of Hot Hatha, whereas Hot Core sessions focus on longer holds, building students' abdominal strength without making them wear brick-filled fanny packs. Those who wish to expand their repertoire further can take on the 84 asanas of the Hatha yoga class, which showcases several manoeuvres outside of the standard 26-pose series.
