What are the benefits of Hot Yoga?
What are the benefits of Hot Yoga?
- The heat causes your blood vessels to dilate, which promotes blood circulation and oxygen absorption
- Your muscles warm up faster, making you more flexible and preventing injuries
- By sweating, your body removes waste products faster, which has a positive effect on your skin and general metabolism
- It’s also great to warm up in the winter ;)
Hot Yoga and Bikram Yoga: are they the same?
Hot Yoga and Bikram Yoga are not the same. What they have in common is that both types of classes involve doing yoga postures in a warm room.
The differences: With Bikram Yoga you always do the same 26 postures and the same two breathing exercises in a room at 40 degrees. ‘Regular’ Hot Yoga is a broader concept: there is a lot of variation and you choose the type of lesson that suits you best.
At Open Yoga we only teach Hot Yoga.

Practical information Hot Yoga
Which classes are Hot?
We offer the following classes as a Hot Yoga variant. Go to the lesson page to see if the lesson is something for you.
What do I take with me?
If you use a studio mat, we ask that you use a special Yoga Towel over the mat. Moisten this Yoga Towel for more grip. We have spray bottles in the room for this. You can rent a Yoga Towel at the desk for 1 euro per class. You can also purchase a Yoga Towel yourself. If you use your own yoga mat, you do not need to use a Yoga Towel.
It is also nice to have a bottle of water and a regular towel with you.
Do you use our props, such as pillows, bolsters and blankets? Then place your own regular towel over the prop.
