FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
& Our Best Answers
ARE CLASSES FOR BEGINNERS?
YES! All of our classes are beginners-friendly, however there are 2 classes on the schedule that we recommend some familiarity with the 26&2 for your best experience. Those classes are Integrated Hatha and the 26&2 *MUSIC* Class!
The 26&2 (both 60- and 90-minute versions), Yin Yoga, and Hot Vinyasa are all intended to be safe for beginning level yoga students - and are still challenging to the advancing students. No matter your level of yoga knowledge - you're welcome here at HYV. We've all been beginners, and you have to start somewhere.
HOW HOT IS HOT?
For the 26&2 and Integrated Hatha, the Hot Room is heated to 105*F and 40% humidity.
For Hot Vinyasa, the Hot Room is heated to about 90-95*F with no added humidity.
For Yin Yoga, the room may be residually warm but the heat is not on.
WHAT IF IT'S NOT FOR ME?
While the team here at Hot Yoga Vancouver strongly believes in the transformative and healing power of the yoga we practice, we also understand and respect that it may not be for everyone. That being said, we highly recommend giving yourself a few classes (at least 3) before making a judgement. Trying something new and challenging is usually uncomfortable and you'll be happy you gave yourself a chance to adjust. To make it easy for you to give it a shot, we currently offer a NEW STUDENT SPECIAL for $49! 14 days of unlimited classes for less than the cost of those 3 classes we recommend starting with!
WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO CLASS?
A yoga mat, full-sized towel, and water is all you need! Please do not bring colored beverages or glass bottles into the Hot Room. All other personal items remain in Studio cubbies.
For Yin Yoga, feel free to bring your own props (blocks, bolsters, sandbags, etc).
Important: We currently do not have mat or towel rentals available at the studio.
ARE THE SHOWERS OPEN?
We are so excited to announce that showers and changing rooms are OPEN!
HYV will provide body wash in-shower. Please bring your own towel and anything else you may need.
The Studio closes 30-minutes after the scheduled end-time of class. We ask that you keep your showers to a quick 3 - 5 minute rinse and are mindful of others.
