We have sometimes fully booked classes and in respect to others, it is important to register only if you are 100% sure to come. We prefer that you book last minute if you are not sure to attend a class.
If you did book your spot and need to cancel it, do it 5 hours before the beginning of the class. We do not accept late cancellation sent by email, SMS or whats’app.
If you did cancel late or no show to a class, you might get a strike if it was a fully booked class with people who potentially couldn’t attend to a class.

My physical condition
We do not recommend that you come practice during the first trimester.
After the first trimester, if you are used to practice Yoga and if you have the validation of your doctor, we highly recommend you to come practice Bikram classes. It will help you to maintain a strong back until the due term and keep you in shape. Check our modified sequence for pregnant women.
Of course, all the other friendly beginner classes are also recommended if you do know how to modify postures, avoid usually deep abs workout, deep torsions and prone poses. Inform your instructor about your condition before the class so she/he can give you some standard modifications.
We believe that when we sweat, there is a detoxification effect through the skin, through the body, but also in the mind. The concentration comes naturally, because of the untypical atmosphere created in the room, the muscles are warmed quicker, and it prevents muscles injuries but also helps extend the muscles in a deeper way, which improves the flexibility at the end.
The overall experience is more a work-out than a traditional yoga session, which stimulates also the entire metabolism and the blood pressure. The relaxation is pretty much intense. There are many more benefits, but it can change from one person to another, as we are all different. The only way to discover is to try it!
Hot Yoga is definitely friendly beginner and a great way to start doing yoga.
We do offer mostly dynamic classes so you have to get ready to feel the practice as having a workout on a warm summer day.
