Hotpod Yoga is Europe’s largest yoga business, we’ve run over 50,000 classes and have 35 locations across 7 countries – we inflated in Newcastle in May 2017 and now run classes all week in Jesmond.

Our classes are grounded in reality and thus suitable for every body and every mind: ladies, gentlemen, beginners, seasoned professionals, young and old! You need only bring water and a towel to enjoy the unique immersion that is a Hotpod Yoga class – an active and passive flow of postures in our other-worldly 20 person inflatable Pod – heated to 37 degrees to supercharge the yoga experience. Afterwards? Your mind will be a little calmer; your body a little looser, and yes – you’ll be a whole lot sweatier.

FAQs

How do I book?

All class purchases and registrations must be made in advance through our website or app.

I’ve never been before, what pass should I get?

For newbies we have an Intro Offer which gives you 12 days of unlimited yoga at any of our Jesmond studios.

What do I need to bring? What should I wear?

You just need a bottle of water and a towel to lay on your mat, you can hire one from us if you forget! We recommend shorts (with nets!) for men, and a t-shirt if you wish. Women should wear gym kit – legging/shorts and vest top (remember, it does get sweaty!)

Do you provide mats?

Yes, mats are provided – you’re welcome to bring your own, but there’s one there waiting for you (for free), just be sure to bring a towel to lay on your mat.

Do you have showers?

We do! You’ll need to head across to the main club building though, show the receptionist your registration pass and sweaty face and they’ll let you right in.

Is there somewhere safe to keep my belongings?

We don’t have locker facilities, but our studio is locked during class, so whilst you’re zipped away in the pod, you can be sure your belongings are safe.

Should I eat before hand?

Try not to eat less than an hour before class.

How hot does it get?

37 degrees – hot enough to have a good sweat, but not so hot that you will leave us feeling faint.

I’ve never done Hot Yoga before will I be ok?

You will be absolutely fine! All classes are beginner to intermediate, take the class at your own pace and remember you can take a restorative pose whenever you need.

Can I bring a friend?

Of course! To refer a friend just email newcastle@hotpodyoga.com with your friend’s name, email address, desired class time and and we will take care of the rest. We will also add £5 credit onto your account to say thanks.

What’s the purpose of the pod?

The pod allows us to create a wonderful hot yoga studio anywhere. It’s an amazing, tranquil environment to practice yoga. And we like inflatables – doesn’t everyone?!

I’m on the waitlist for a class, what happens next?

As long as you have a valid class pass or active membership on your account, if a space opens up you will be added automatically and receive an email notification. If this is within one hour of the class start time then you will need to confirm your place via your account

When is the studio open?

The studio is open 30 minutes before and after each class, between classes the studio is locked.

Can I book someone in on my account?

Unfortunately not, all customers must have their own unique account and class passes cannot be shared. I’m having trouble booking classes using the app, help! Please make sure you have signed the waiver by logging into your account on a web browser before trying to book via the app. If thats all done, make sure you’re logged into the right account! If you’re still struggling contact us!

Can I do Hotpod Yoga while pregnant?

Unfortunately not. The heat makes it quite high exertion and raises the body temperature – both not entirely safe when pregnant. So, we recommend finding a great pregnancy yoga class (try Yogabellies Newcastle) and then coming to see us after the baby’s born!!

Can children attend Hotpod Yoga?

We’re afraid not! No under 16s allowed, unfortunately.
