    Yoga is as much about strength and stamina as it is about being supple. Can’t touch your toes? All is not lost. Un-bendies welcome!

  • Yoga isn’t all about sitting on the floor with your eyes closed.Open or Close

    If you’re looking for a lie down then you’re better off staying on the sofa. Our classes are designed to challenge you physically and get you fit, toned, healthy and happy. In a word, we want to make you, er… sweat.

  • Yoga’s not just for girls.Open or Close

    Andy Murray, the Welsh Rugby Team and David Beckham (to name but a few) all credit yoga with enhancing their sporting performance. It doesn’t matter if you’ve got a six-pack or if you haven’t seen your toes for 6 years – you’ll find something for you at Sweat.

  • Yoga can burn as many calories as a 5k run.Open or Close

    Yoga’s not just about breathing and gentle stretching. It can be a great cardio workout. A hot yoga class can burn upwards of 400 calories (as long as you’re not sat on the floor chanting ‘om’ of course!)

  • Normal people do yoga.Open or Close

    It’s not all tie-dye and joss sticks. Yoga may have come from somewhere ancient and spiritual, but at Sweat Studios it’s a very modern workout with absolutely no nonsense.

  • Hot yoga isn’t only for the hardcore.Open or Close

    Okay, so hot yoga is hard work. But if you’re a beginner we’ll help you. If you’re working through an injury we’ll give you modifications. You’ll get a workout but at a pace that suits you. If you’re really not a fan of the hot stuff, give one of our warm classes a go.
