Like coffee, yoga is useless unless it’s heated to precisely 105 degrees. Today’s Groupon puts your body and mind on a hot plate: for $39, you get a 10-class pack (up to a $175 value) at Hot 8 Yoga in Santa Monica. Inside the studio, a pair of spacious, eco-friendly exercise rooms—each with its own air purification and heating system—help participants reap the healing, detoxifying benefits of performing yoga in a heated environment. Take hot yoga, Hot 8 power yoga, Hot 8 sculpt, Hot 8 yoga barre, Hot 8 Pilates, or hot power fusion (click here to view class descriptions and here to see the weekly schedule). After the workout, guests can claim a private shower by stapling a birth certificate to the curtain, wash away the post-yoga sweat, and head back to work feeling refreshed and recharged.
- Hot 8 makes an effort to care for the health of their yogis by ensuring that the air quality in the studios is well oxygenated, properly humidified and disinfected. – [Melissa Chua, LA Yoga]
- Not only is the studio sweet smelling (ok as close to it as possible...) but it also has nice spa touches - cold towels after class, cucumber water, and a great looking locker room with two showers and lavender lotion! – Molly G., Yelp
Hot 8 Yoga
With top-of-the-line air purifying equipment and special floors, Hot 8 Yoga debunks the myth that hot-yoga studios are stuffy and smelly. Its filtration system scours air with UV rays before pumping oxygen into the classroom, keeping the studio fresh and germ-free, and students breathing easily. Beneath yogis' feet, ploy-extruded matting keeps the air smelling sweet by wicking away moisture and odors atop shock-absorbent PVC floors.
These measures enhance pupils’ practice during more than 100 weekly hot-yoga classes. With the heat cranked at varying degrees to boost flexibility, metabolism, and detoxification, sessions range from classic hot yoga to yoga sculpt, which incorporates free weights. Yoga barre, on the other hand, combines ballet, yoga, body sculpting, and cardio for a comprehensive workout that makes you sweatier than wearing a vinyl spacesuit in a sauna.
