Hotpod Yoga Pretoria launched in 2015 as the one of the first of its kind in South Africa, and offers a ‘real-life’ approach to yoga.

You can catch us in our Pinaster Avenue Hotpod Home, where we offer daily classes, suitable for every body and every mind: ladies, gentleman, 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.

How do I pay?

Select the eft, credit card or cash payment option. Cash payments should be brought into the studio and handed to your instructor before or after class. Eft or credit card payment are done directly online and not after selecting cash payment then using bank account details.

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 classes.

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

You just need a bottle of water and a large bath towel to lay on your mat, you can hire one from us if you forget! We recommend tight shorts 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, you won’t regret bringing a towel.

Do you have showers?

Yes we have lovely showers.

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. Plain white yogurt stabilizes your sugar for a happy healthy feel good performance. Also take electrolytes if you can and drink plenty of water, nothing more healthy for your body than plenty of water and a good sweat.

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. Our humidifier does it’s job well, there won’t be a moment where you feel under humid pressure from the heat.

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! Just sign them up by creating a profile on the app or website. If you have referred a friend just email pretoria@hotpodyoga.com to get R30 credit towards your next purchase as a thanks from us.

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 studios are open 20 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 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 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.
