What to Expect From A One Hot Yoga Session
One Hot Yoga offers a range of Yoga and Pilates classes, including traditional options like Yin and Power Flow and Reformer Pilates classes, alongside more contemporary Yoga sessions such as their monthly Friday Flow and One Hot Still sessions.
Friday Flow is a 90-minute class with a varied theme each month, with previous Friday Flow sessions featuring laser light shows, live music and blindfolds.
Both the regular Pilates and Yoga classes typically span 45-60 minutes, with the Yoga sessions taking place in studios ranging from 27°c to 37°c. The reformer Pilates classes are held at 21°c and the Mat Pilates at 27°c.
The Reception Service
There was no response to our pre-visit calls to the branch. On arrival, our evaluator had to wait outside the studio for 10 minutes before they were let in, but once they were in the team offered a polite welcome and a helpful tour of the studio.
On enquiring about membership options after the class, they were advised to book on ClassPass.
The Class Experience
One Hot Yoga received our Recommended rating for the Class Experience.
The class had a very clear structure that was communicated well by our instructor. Easy-to-follow demonstrations were offered for each pose, which was helpful. More personal attention and encouragement would have improved the experience.
