New to hot yoga, or just need more information? See our most commonly asked questions below

  • Do I need to book into a class before I go?

    Yes please, we have a limited number of spaces so all class purchases and registrations need to be made in advance.

  • What do I need to do to be ready?

    We would recommend drinking lots of water prior to your class, aim for two litres over the course of the day leading up to your class. Drinking electrolytes can also be beneficial, especially if you have already trained or are feeling a little dehydrated.

  • What should I wear?

    We recommend shorts for men, T-shirts are optional but it does get very sweaty. Women should wear gym kit leggings/shorts and a vest top.

  • What should I bring?

    You will need a yoga mat and a towel. If you forget these, these can be purchased before the class. We recommend you also bring a water bottle. A change of clothes and clean towel are also recommended. We have changing and showering facilities on site.

  • Do you provide mats?

    No you are required to bring your own mat. We do sell mats, so if it’s your first time you can buy one before the class starts.

  • Do you have showers?

    Yes we have showers and changing facilities. Please make your showers short and brief to allow others access.

  • Should I eat beforehand?

    We recommend you don’t eat within an hour of the class. Drink plenty of water though.

  • This is my first time doing Hot Yoga, do you think I will be ok to do a full class?

    Yes you’ll be ok, it will be tough but you’ll feel amazing after. Just remember the important thing is you take it at your own pace, rest and resume the child’s pose at any time. The goal in your first class is to just stay in the room and climatise to the heat. Of course if you need to leave for a short break we will understand.

  • How hot does it get?

    40 degrees

  • Why make it hot?

    The heat encourages the lungs and the heart to work harder. This means you’ll get more out of your session, increase your fitness and burn extra calories. The heat also softens your muscles allowing you increased flexibility. We use infrared heat which has been proven to aid the muscle recovery process, excellent for athletes all those regular gym goers. The intense sweating also acts as a great detox, sweating out those toxins, cleansing the body, leaving you feeling amazing!

  • What’s the difference between Boiler Room Yoga and Bikram?

    Bikram is a well-known US-based hot yoga franchise. It is a strict practice, made up of 26 postures, practiced for 90 minutes. Some of our postures are similar to the Bikram sequence, as both forms derive from the same root of yoga. However, our sequences are mostly an hour long, slightly less hot, typically more flowing and are less prescriptive. We allow room for creativity, so that not every class or teacher will be exactly the same.

  • How often should I do Hot Yoga?

    We recommend attending on a regular basis, this allows your body to remain climatised to the heat and get maximum benefit from the Yoga. To really maximise the benefits and continue to make progress in improving your flexibility, strength and stability we would recommend attending 3 classes a week.

  • Can I do Hot Yoga whilst pregnant?

    Unfortunately not. The heat makes it quite high exertion and raises the body temperature – both not entirely safe when pregnant. So, we recommend finding a great pregnancy yoga class and then coming to see us after the baby’s born for our ‘Yoga for New Mums’ classes.

  • What age do you need to be to attend Boiler Room?

    16 or above.

  • What if I am on the waitlist?

    If you are on the waitlist you will be notified when a space becomes available, you will have to claim the space to confirm your attendance. The space will be allocated to the first client on the waitlist to claim it.

  • Do you have a cancellation policy?

    Yes, you must cancel your class booking at least 4 hours in advance of the class starting. If you cancel with less than 4 hours notice you will not be refunded for the class.
