Please join us in our warm, welcoming yoga community of mindful restorative practices, challenging classes and everything in between to improve your physical health and mental well being.
OUR STUDIO'S APPROACH
At THE HOTROOM, we invite you to explore your freedom as we guide you towards connection with your inner self through healing movement.
Our practice balances the solar and lunar energies that keep us in harmony with our mind, body and soul.
Hatha means Sun + Moon, opposing energies that complete each other to create wholeness. Hatha yoga helps us create inner harmony and balance.
THE HOTROOM Yoga Studio is a warm, welcoming environment where everyone is accepted and belongs.
All our certified instructors will guide & encourage you to honour yourself, your practice & your body.
YOGA IS MAGIC
Connecting our mind + body through breath & movement reaches our inner being, our soul. Together at THE HOTROOM, let's discover the magic of yoga.
Tried and true since 2014.
THE HOTROOM offers blended yoga classes, heated and unheated classes, barre, pilates and other strength classes.

Suitable for all levels.
Shed old conditioning by releasing and letting go followed with a period of surrender. An unfolding of your mind, body and spirit. An unguided class practicing 108 Sun Salutations in the heat with pranayama and meditation. The number 108 is significant and sacred in Hinduism meaning spiritual completion. This is a heated class.

Hot Vinyasa Flow
Vinyasa refers to the alignment of breath with movement to create a dynamic, flowing form of yoga. Poses are held for a specific number of breaths before moving on to the next pose; Vinyasa also refers to the movements or series of movements done between each pose in the series. This is a heated class (95-105').
Or Slow Flow for beginners.
This is a high intensity practice blending all three hot classes - beginning with Vinyasa followed by Pilates and finishing with Hatha and Yin yoga. Yogalates© is a full body workout with no repetitive movements. This is a heated class (90’F).
Yin is a slow paced, beautiful, calming class with passive poses targeting deep tissues, muscles and tendons. Poses are held in the gentle heat (85'F) for longer periods while focusing on breath.

A BRIEF HISTORY
Having a hot yoga studio was a dream that turned into a passion.
At the time, my current exercise left me feeling depleted and I began the search to find something new. I stumbled across an image of a person dripping in sweat while practicing yoga. I was intrigued.
My first hot yoga class was in Saskatoon, SK.... and I was hooked! I felt amazing. Like all the excess was rinsed away.
I decided to replicate the experience at home until I could take training. Each morning at 4:30am, I heated my bathroom with a space heater and humidifier, went back to bed for an hour, then practiced for 90min. Once I took the training I knew this practice had value that needed to be shared.
Of all the demands we make of our body in a day, yoga is the reward and the gratitude you show towards it.
It's self love, repair and restorative.
The hour is an opportunity to take a moment for yourself, your health and well being.
And eventually an internal shift happens and the practice moves with you off the mat and into the rest of your life.
What if you love it?
