Hot 8 Yoga Class Styles
Yoga Barre is a fusion of yoga and barre. It is a high-energy class that is great for toning. This class helps open the hips and pelvis region. This is an advanced class.
Yoga Sculpt is a fusion of yoga and free weights. It is a high-energy class, great for cardio. This reminds me of a Bootcamp class. It is pretty hard but a great workout. This is an advanced class.
Power is a traditional vinyasa-style yoga class with chaturangas, arm balances, deep twists, and more. This style allows teachers to be creative with their practice. This class is for anyone from beginners to master yogis.
Hot Power Fusion is a condensed fusion of traditional Bikram-style yoga. Many of the poses are similar to Bikram, and there are no chaturangas. I would recommend this class to beginners.
Power 1 is another beginner-friendly class. Power 1 focuses on alignment and breath to movement. The temperature of this class is lower to help students adjust to the heat.
Yin is one of my favorite classes because it is so relaxing. Yin focuses on deep, relaxed stretches and breathing. All yin classes are practiced seated or lying down.

How Hot Is Hot 8 Yoga
Okay, you will sweata LOT. I use two dry face towels to wipe myself off throughout class. The studio does provide face towels and shower towels. They do not offer yoga mat towels though, here is my favorite mat towel. Hot 8 Yoga is much more desirable than other studios where Ive practiced. The last time I was in class, it got up to 113° Fahrenheit! The typical classes range from 103°-108°, the heating system used controls humidity and C02. The heating system also has UV-C lights proven to kill 99.98% of airborne bacteria and viruses, including COVID-19. The floor is antibacterial as well.
