Here you will connect with other students, have the opportunity to visit with friends, and to just take a break from the outside world. This beautiful space was created to eliminte the wall line up that happens at most studios in anticipation for the studio doors to open. It was created not only for students waiting for their class to begin but to also give the students in class full silence from exterior noise and allowing them to focus and to maximize their practice.
The hot yoga room is maintained at a temperature of 95-105 degrees with 50% humidity. This allows the body to become very warm, and therefore more flexible with less injuries.
We here at HotShop are extremely conscious about the environment. At our Studio, health to our yogis and guests are paramount. Below are the following ways in which we are contributing to a greener planet:
Clean Air Studio
Our heating system has been custom created which will ensure the consistency of the room temperature and humidity while constantly exchanging the air within the space so it is always fresh and clean.
The Yoga Flooring
Our flooring choice for our yoga room contains 35% recycled content and is antimicrobial which continuously inhibits the growth of bacteria, mold and fungus. Our flooring is non toxic and Leed Certified. It is shock absorbent, soft on your joints and slip resistant which is essential to prevent short term and long term injuries.
Low energy consumption lighting.
Non Toxic ECO paint
Indoor air is three times more polluted than outdoor air, and according to the EPA, is considered one of the top 5 hazards to human health. Paints and finishes are among the leading causes. Paints and finishes release low level toxic emissions into the air for years after application. The source of these toxins is a variety of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) which, until recently, were essential to the performance of the paint. New environmental regulations, and consumer demand, have led to the development of low-VOC and zero-VOC paints and finishes. These new paints are durable and less harmful to human and environmental health. We have zero VOC free paint on all the walls in the studio to ensure that the indoor air quality in our studio is safe and healthy.
Clay Studio Wall
American Clay is dedicated to recycling and reusing content, maintains low-energy production standards to reduce energy consumption, and sources locally to keep fuel shipment costs low. American Clay has been valued for its beauty and environmental friendliness. However some of the characteristics of American Clay that make it even more attractive are its durability, low maintenance and recycled content. The porous clay plaster finish does not support microbial growth, and does not allow moisture to accumulate, helping to maintain a mold-free environment with improved indoor air quality. The right choice for our studio and for our yogis.
We have selected water consuming products that limit the amount of water we use. Low flush toilets and low flow water consumption faucets and shower heads. Conventional toilets can use as much as 23 litres of water per flush where ours consume 5 litres and the use of low flow faucets we can cut the amount of water you would typically use when showering in half.
