Bikram is dead: hurray for hot yoga!

Hot yoga Session

We have good news for Parisiennes on the lookout for sports practices that make you slimmer, enhance muscle tone and give you glow without making you suffer to death...

You are going to adore the new yoga phenomenon straight from Los Angeles and that is already taking Paris by storm.

Very different from bikram, hot yoga takes place in a temperature ranging between 29 and 35°. It combines the precision of therapeutic yoga (high breathing respiration, detox that help with all the urban ailments) + exercises of power yoga for fitness ( arms, abs…), all in a room specially heated by Infrarouge which enables to calm stress and accentuate the cardio side.

We like: a practice that gives you instant glow, as though you were coming out of a treatment at the spa. It provides immediate anti hangover and white night effect.
