The Practice

Why yoga?

Hot Yoga Studio Virginia Beach is Hampton Roads’ very first hot yoga studio with certified, experienced instructors that teach students body alignment, relaxation, and breath control. While the classes offered provide a physical workout, centering the mind and balancing the emotions are just as important and typically occur as a result of a regular practice. Each person is encouraged to practice their yoga; working at their personal pace and within their limits.

Everyone can benefit from yoga. There’s no need to be in any special condition to begin. All of the programs offered at Hot Yoga Studio are presented with precise, success-oriented methods of instruction that assure the highest quality experience.  Our students evolve, finding the strength within and without. 

What to expect

... to become a better version of you;  more peace and less stress, sleep better, think better, breathe better, move better, feel better, BE better!


Hot Yoga/Flow

This practice combines traditional yoga postures with sun salutations making it more aerobic than a traditional hot yoga class. We practice in a heated environment in order to warm muscles, soothe joints, and detoxify through the process of sweating and breath work.  Good for all levels.  There is plenty of opportunity to learn ... particularly for beginners ... and expand even a seasoned practice.  This is a whole body workout ... top-to-bottom, side-to- side, and front-to- back! 

(60, 75, and 90-minute classes)

Level II

 This practice is for the experienced practitioner.  We get into deeper twists, more binds, lifts, and inversions.  But, if you want a challenge, you are welcome to attend. Your handstand might not look quite like the instructor's, but you will learn modifications to get you there in time.  If you are not sure if you are ready for a Level ll class, just ask one of the instructors.  We're happy to help you figure it out.  Challenging? Yes, but loads of fun!

Yin Yoga

 Long-held, deep postures supported by pillows, blankets and blocks allow for lengthening and stretching of the body’s connective tissue. According to Chinese medicine, our energy channels run deep within this tissue.  This is why yin can be more energizing than a traditional yoga class. Yin promotes such deep, intense stretching that it  is equally good for athletes and those just starting an exercise program as it helps prevent injuries. (60-minute class)
