Hatha yoga refers to a set of physical exercises, and sequences of asanas, designed to align your skin, muscles, and bones. It is a branch of yoga which concentrates on physical health and mental well-being. You will learn basic poses, relaxation techniques and terminology that you will find in almost every other yoga technique. The Hatha practice is where all yoga is derived from and is a wonderful place for beginners to start. Intermediate and advanced students and also push themselves by holding poses deeper and longer.
Vinyasa is a series of yoga poses that involve coordinate movements with breath to flow from one pose to another. The word “Vinyasa” translates into “arranging something in a special way,”and involves sequential movement that interlinks postures with continuous flow. This class is great for any level of yoga students and provides a challenging and fun experience.
The Barkan Method is a style of Hatha Yoga that focuses on vitalizing, strengthening and stretching the body with various yoga poses in a heated room. The Barkan method helps to eliminate stress, depression, anxiety and other disorders through calming of the mind and strengthening of the body. It is a transformational experience for beginners through to advanced and for all people in different ages of life.
ENRG Hot Yoga offers a friendly and welcoming approach to helping beginners up to advanced students to learn and practice yoga. We strive to make our classes enjoyable to everyone who wishes to practice while also ensuring our members get the most out of each class. At ENRG we currently offer Vinyasa (flow) Yoga in different variations or personal touches. Hot yoga combines the benefits of yoga with those of Far-Infra-Red heat. Practicing yoga in a heated environment assists the muscles to warm up and open more quickly which allows you to deepen your range in each posture, therefore increasing the function of our body’s internal health. Far-Infra-Red heat is easier for the body to tolerate and may have other health benefits. We strongly believe that the practice of yoga brings great benefits to the body and mind. The room is set in-between 35 and 40 degrees to help you sweat, detoxify, and deepen your practice, challenging and nurturing you in a different way each time you practice.
Yoga involves a lot of movement, so wear something that you are comfortable in and that allows you to move and flow from one pose to another. Yoga focuses on calmness, control and flexibility, so clothing should not interfere with achieving those goals. It should provide a comfortable “second skin” that permits viewing alignment and making postural adjustments as needed. Unrestricted movement is the most important factor when selecting bottoms, so ensure the material is form fitting yet comfortable and does not require adjustment while attempting to hold poses
Everything else can be locked away in the change rooms or left outside the yoga room in a cupboard. Please don’t bring any other items into the hot yoga room.
The room is heated with Far-Infra-Red heating panels from above. You can find a lot more information about Far-Infra-Red online. The panels heat up bodies instead of space and warm you up from the inside out. Far-Infra-Red is said to be helpful against joint pains or injuries and has other healing properties. The temperature in the room varies between 35 and 40 degrees. Each teacher has their own unique blend of yoga which might include breathing practices, meditation, asana (postures), Vinyasa (flows), philosophy and even chanting. You can find out more on the teacher profiles.
Yes, most people are fine in a heated room. Hot yoga should be avoided by people with high blood pressure and during pregnancy.
Two to three hours after you eat is generally when you have an empty stomach and it is okay to practice yoga. If you are starving and want to practice yoga but need some nourishment it’s fine to eat something little, light and easy to digest to sustain you through the practice.
If you had a solid practice before your pregnancy, feel free to commence. If you are relatively new to yoga, start your practice after week 12 to be on the safe side. Practicing in a heated room is not recommended during pregnancy! When coming to a regular yoga class, make sure you talk to the teacher first and let him or her know you are pregnant and which week. Your teacher will then guide you safely through the practice and give you modifications when needed.
