A great hot yoga venue in Birmingham Cant recommend enough!
I've finished my intro offer at yoga haven in Birmingham a.k.a. "hot yoga studio" and figured I'd write down my thoughts on it so I can remember how much I loved it.
I decided I wanted to try hot yoga when my old fitness routine of the gym wasn't doing it for me anymore. Ive read a lot about hot yoga in birmingham and I needed to shake things up, and yoga is one thing I've never tried before, so I went down to yoga haven near snowhill station in Birmingham.
Great staff, very friendly and very welcoming. The owner, a lady called Allie was also there and she chatted to me in depth about the benefits of hot yoga. She was super helpful and had a wealth of knowledge as she's been teaching for an impressive 13 years! She showed me around and was really excited to tell me they're expanding into the ground and lower grouond floors of the building and adding big changing rooms, more showers and toilets.
My first class was hard and I never realsied I could sweat this much! The tips about wearing as little clothing as possible were right, it's hot! 10 classes in, I was able to get into the poses a little deeper, my mind felt calmer and my overall happiness was on the rise.
I love this yoga studio and have become an annual member! My advise, one class isnt enough to decide if you like it, it certainly takes getting used to, but when you do, you fall in love with it!!!
I brought a series of 10 classes as part of a deal on another site. I remember the booking was really easy so that was a bonus. The venue is really spacious, really relaxing and really nicely decorated. This was especially noticeable in the changing rooms, which were probably about as lovely as changing rooms can get! There was free tea too, which was always a bonus when I turned up early for classes.
The studio run basics classes. These focused on the core fundamentals of yoga and, as a relatively newbie, I really felt like these were a good idea. However, the class size was really big so I didn't really feel like I could ask questions if I was confused or like I got much personal attention if I was having problems with poses. I think class sizes were pretty big because of the voucher deal so maybe this isn't usually a problem. There was also a lot of focus on the spiritual side of yoga but I didn't feel like at any point it was forced upon me, which is a nice balance.
However, I feel like the staff here lets this studio down. The front desk staff, whilst never really "rude", were quite brisk. To be honest, I can't recall ever once being greeted with a smile. The teaching also varied. Some teachers were lovely and supportive, some stunk of smug superiority! In one extreme example, I remember a girl saying she had a bad wrist so couldn't perform certain poses and the teachers reaction was rather rude and disrespectful - almost an "So why are you here if you're not going to try?" sort of reaction.
I would recommend this studio to yoga fans in North London.
The yoga studio, just a few blocks from the French Quarter in the Marigny neighborhood, was the original location of this style of yoga for many years in New Orleans. It has expanded now with so many incredible, high quality teachers who want to share the real teachings of yoga. Also offered is meditation, philosophy, yoga teacher trainings, yoga retreats, and such good southern sweet vibes. Join the Swans!
I have been a Jivamukti student for many years. It is a school, not just a class. The asana sequences are vigorous and all classes incorporate chanting, the focus of the month and meditation. It is so much more then doing a few yoga poses. I would highly recommend! Namaste!
