Yogacita has been created to provide the perfect environment for practicing yoga. The warehouse space at the Old Gun Factory has been sympathetically converted , retaining much of its original character; from the open brickwork to the immense furnace chimney that spans one corner of the studio.
The communal areas are low level lit, warm and inviting with associated ambient smells for each area. By contrast, the changing rooms convey industrial chic with top of the range copper rainwater showers and full locker room facilities.
Everything is provided from essential oil toiletries, to hairdryers and straighteners so you can go straight to the office from an early morning, to brunch from a mid-morning class or out to dinner after an evening session. 2 hours free on street parking also means you can drive to class without worry. Somebody will be manning the desk from half an hour before class begins, just ring the bell and they’ll let you in.
The studio itself is heated to a moderate 32 degrees Celcius, so hot but not too hot! The ventilation system brings fresh air in and heats it to the ambient temperature, keeping the room well oxygenated. Our state of the art heating system uses infra red panel heaters hung from the ceiling so it feels like you are lying on a beach in a tropical paradise!
Doing yoga in a hot room increases your sense of peace, relaxes your body and enhances your ability to get lost in your practice.
If we still haven’t convinced you to give hot yoga a try, then there are a number of non-hot classes; the yin, sivananda and candlelit classes are all practiced in a warm room. Recently added to the timetable is Rebecca Stewart’s Yin Yang dynamic flow as a non-hot class on a Tuesday evening.
Mats, towels, water and sundries are all available for hire or purchase.
