Class Information

  • Please sign up for class and plan to arrive 10 to 15 minutes before class for check-in. Sign up at the studio is also very easy.
  • Bring a large towel, yoga mat, and bottle of water. The studio has mats, small towels and filtered water to use if you get caught without these.
  • Come well hydrated and with an empty stomach – limit eating to one hour prior to class and then only a light snack.
  • Wear light workout clothing. Men typically wear shorts, similar to bathing suit shorts and a light T shirt. Women typically wear light yoga leggings, fitted shorts and workout tops.
  • Please do not wear any perfumes or heavy scents as many people have sensitivities.
  • Tell your instructor about injuries, special needs or concerns. You can always skip postures that don’t feel right.
  • Be comfortable in class, laughter is encouraged.
  • Many people will be modifying their practice depending on their level of experience.  Avoid comparing your practice to another’s.
  • Do what feels good without strain or pain.
  • Take time for reflection after the class.  Notice the calmness and the decreased stress you may feel even into the next day.

A typical class is not difficult but it can be very physical. You won’t be doing any poses that only a gymnast or circus performers could do.  The unique Hot Yoga Burlington style features interesting patterns of poses that vary with every class.

It’s easy to catch on the the rhythm of the class.  It’s also easy to change, modify or even skip a portion of the class if you choose.

What can I expect the class to be like?

  • Warm-up sequence
  • Rising energy and foundation poses
  • Crest of the practice
  • Peak pose that stems form previous foundation poses
  • Warm-down
  • Stretching and gentle movements
  • Five-minute resting pose called Savasana that starts with a small, cool pebble placed on your forehead.
  • As class finishes you receive a cool, moist, orange-scented towel for your refreshment.

Reviews from 1st Time Yogis

“I just wanted to say thank you for a wonderful Hot Yoga Class on Saturday. I have never taken a Yoga Class before and was a bit hesitant at first if I would enjoy it or even be able to keep up with the young girls, but your pleasant demeanor and instruction melted that fear away!” – Margaret G

“Hot Yoga Burlington will provide you with a body and mind experience, whether you are new to Yoga or not. The teachers are thoughtful and inspiring and you will leave your mat with a feeling of deep satisfaction.”  –Bettina

I love Hot Yoga Burlington primarily because of who Bill and Andrea are as people.  They have created a warm (pun intended), loving, and accepting space where all abilities are welcome.  In every class, regardless of instructor, practitioners are encouraged to make it their own.  The space is clean, bright, and inviting!  –Cathy

I was intimidated to try hot yoga but I am so glad I did!  I wrongly thought it would be pretentious and I would be uncomfortable with my lack of yoga experience.  I was surprised how it gave me a great workout and found it to be energizing as well as helping to de-stress.  I look forward to going to class instead of dreading the boring gym.
I appreciate and enjoy every class at this yoga studio so much. It has enhanced my life.  Each of the teachers has a wonderful unique style.  They are all very welcoming, supportive and encouraging.  They guide classes by giving multiple options for poses to accommodate everyone’s practice, for all skill levels.  The emphasis is placed upon making it your own practice and not being perfect. I learn more every time I go and I leave class relaxed, peaceful and stronger.  – Cindy

As a beginner, this was a great class. My favorite part was the orange cold cloth and Pebble! Thank you so much!! –Danielle

My very first Hot Yoga class tonight. It was fabulous! Bill is kind, welcoming & knowledgeable. I really look forward to attending more!– Susan

We tried a class here while on vacation. It was my husband’s very first class. It was great and I highly recommend this studio. We really enjoyed the orange scented cold towels at the end and also the cool stones! I really believe it is all in the details and it is obvious that they know this too! A++++ –Michelle M

Best sleep EVER. YOGA BLISS. I have tried multiple hot yoga classes; Hot Yoga Burlington is the place to be, especially if you are looking to be a part of a welcoming community with exceptional teachers. Naomi & Bill are knowledgeable & motivating 🙂 The class is judgement free, flow yoga that will work your core and put your mind at ease. I am not a yogi, but a lover of hot yoga! – Christine
