Hotpod Yoga is Europe’s largest yoga business, we’ve run over 50,000 classes and have 40+ locations across 8 countries – we inflated in Johannesburg in 2015.

You can catch us in our Linden Hotpod Home, where we offer daily classes, 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 10 days of unlimited yoga.

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?

The Linden studio currently has showers in the ladies room and we are planning to include some in the men’s rooms soon.

Is there somewhere safe to keep my belongings?

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

Should I eat beforehand?

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 [email protected] with your friend’s name, email address, desired class time and location and we will take care of the rest. We will also add R50 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 are the studios open?

The studio is open 15 minutes before and after each class, between classes the studios are 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 that’s 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 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.
