You don’t always need a plan. Sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go, and do yoga.
At Hot Yoga Markham (HYM) we offer several different forms of yoga from Astanga to Vinyasa to a Power Flow. Even a class with our own mix. The majority of our classes are designed to grow with you throughout the long lifetime of your practice; a challenging practice that links breath with movement through postures. You’ll have the ability to begin as an innocent starter yogi and grow to an adept yogi breaking out into handstands. Or you just might like to take the chill path and stick to ultra relaxing classes that help you calm and focus. Either way, we’ve got the class.

It is very important to engage your practice with an open and focused mind. Trap any racing thoughts and let them float way!EMBRACE YOUR CORE AND KEEP A GOOD POSTURE. Keep your core muscles tight to protect your lower back and improve balance. The emphasis is to work with a neutral spine, maintaining the natural curves of your back. This helps strengthen the supportive muscles around the spine.
UJJAYI BREATHING. INHALE & EXHALE THROUGH NOSE. Also know as “the ocean breath”. This diaphragmatic breathing is done in a controlled manner that helps to increase oxgen level and build up internal heat to warm up your body/muscles. Ujjayi breathing also helps to quiet and focus the mind, release stress and tension, and massage internal organs.
We highly recommend that you incorporate different types of yoga practices/fitness classes into your lifestyle. Cross-training is an important exercise regimen that incorporates different methods of training to develop a more functional and dynamic body.
