Class Descriptions


Our classes are fun, energetic, and sweaty. Our heated classes keep your internal heat high, and your heart steadily pumping. Simply put, Hot Yoga Naperville works for everybody – and every body. No matter who you are, you are never too old and never too sick to begin.

Hot Yoga

Hot Yoga is a beginner yoga class held in a heated space (between 100 and 105 degrees F) with mild humidity to relax the muscles, increase flexibility, and detoxify the body.

This class is the place you want to be in to lose weight, increase strength and flexibility, cross-train, sharpen mental focus, or simply learn to go with the flow. No matter your goals, we are certain that you’ll walk in and float out with a newfound sense of accomplishment. You will sweat a lot and burn a lot of calories.

We have three class lengths to choose from: 60, 75, and 90 minutes.

PLEASE NOTE: The majority of our Hot Yoga classes are comprised of 26 of the classical 84 postures as inspired by Bikram. Expect some variation on the 60-minute class from teacher to teacher as they introduce additional postures.

Hot Vinyasa 

Hot Vinyasa is a yoga class designed for all levels.

Hot Vinyasa is your daily transformation and personal revolution. This ever-evolving practice is for people who are ready to tap into their inner power: physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. It will not only dramatically strengthen and tone your body; it will open energetic channels to a calmer, peaceful spirit. The physical practice is vigorous and challenging, but accessible for all levels. You will experience strength, balance, flexibility, and endurance – and your body will transform immediately. It is a dynamic practice that emphasizes the integration of breath and movement in order to facilitate the natural unfolding of a series of postures. Room heat is moderate.

Ashtanga

Students will learn the fixed order of the Ashtanga yoga system of poses using a specific breath synchronized movement technique called vinyasa. Through vinyasa, there is continuity via the breath from asana to asana. In the Ashtanga sequence, each asana builds from the previous – and prepares for successive asanas. Both classes offer suitable adjustments to enable students to progress toward their maximum potential and advance their practice.

Ashtanga Led - This class is open to all levels. The teacher will lead the class through the sequential order of asanas of the Primary Series. The key benefits of attending this class include 1) learning about the fundamental techniques of Ashtanga yoga – breath (ujjayi), bandhas (Mula, Uddiyana and Jalandhara), and the gazing points (dristi); 2) learning alignment and the subtle nuances of each pose; and 3) receiving adjustments that will help you increase your physical-mental awareness and internal focus and 4) developing mindfulness, better self-awareness and a sense of calm and balance. 

Ashtanga Mysore -  This class is more suited to students familiar with the sequence. This class is not "led" but rather instruction is given on a one-on-one basis. Students practice the Ashtanga sequence at their own pace and according to their current ability. The teacher assists each student individually through targeted adjustments and modifications if necessary. Newer and beginner students tend to have a much shorter practice than do those with more experience. As one gains more strength, stamina, flexibility and concentration, additional asanas are given to the student. The primary benefits of attending this class include the one-on-one attention from the teacher including appropriate adjustments and methods to further develop and refine the student's practice leading to a more proficient and dedicated self-practice.

Community Class Yoga

Our community class is an $8 drop in open to anyone! The style of class varies each month so that community members can sample our variety of options. Check the website to see which style is assigned to the community class each month. In the community class, level 1-2 traditional Hatha Yoga postures are done in a room where the temperature is moderate heat.

Audio

Audio is a pre-recorded class. Instructions are given over the sound system with little distraction and perfect for someone who knows the routine. You can practice with little pressure to keep up or stay in poses. If you need to leave early, that’s ok too. Work at your own pace and watch others if you need help. Classes are 75–90 minutes.

Assisted Audio

Trained assistant demonstrating and helping students as we play audio. This allows a constant flow of instructions to keep you in the zone while also allowing us to work with students who need some more help. It’s like having two teachers.
