O U R S T U D E N T S
I have been practicing 26+2 yoga since the end of April, & have been practicing twice a week. It would be more if I didn't live in Otaki.
I was recommended Hot Yoga by my Chiropractor, as I am quite stiff from training for triathlon. I have hamstring issues & general mobility issues. The 26+2 Hot Yoga sequence has freed me up! I have found running easier & have more flexibility overall. I am not good at stretching after a workout so have found Hot Yoga invaluable.
I thoroughly recommend this practice. As I get older I find my muscles tighten up & this helps so much to keep me more supple.
I can do Yoga poses now that I couldn't do a month ago, it's improving all the time.
I have been practicing at KHY since February this year, and I practice 3-4 times per week.
I’ve always loved yoga but had never tried the 26+2 hot sequence. I moved to Kapiti at the end of last year and was looking for a new studio. I met Anj through work - I was hooked after my first class!
I find 26+2 yoga helps me in life both physically and mentally. Physically, I love the energised feeling I get following a class. I sleep better, my digestion has improved, and I am maintaining my flexibility. Mentally, I am more focussed and relaxed throughout the day. As a chiropractor, I also appreciate the benefits 26+2 hot yoga has on spinal strength and mobility, which helps keep my spine healthy and happy.
If you have never tried this form of yoga, go for it! There are layers to every posture, so whether you’re a beginner or have some yoga experience, the teachers are amazing at guiding you through a practice that works for your body.

From Our Students.
"I felt amazing this morning after a fab sleep for the 1st time for ages. Met up with a girlfriend for a suspension training 5.30am and was amazed how good I felt!
I recently had to start taking a preventive asthma inhaler and my aim is to ditch this with your/hot yoga help. Elise has mentioned many times of your place, how it works and that I would benefit from it."

"I like that you have to focus & concentrate. You can't make it if you don't focus on what, when and how you are doing the postures. You need to leave every single thought outside of the room to make the most of it and to concentrate on your breath.
So after each session, you feel physically and mentally relaxed."
" Finally Hot Yoga in Kapiti!! Anjana is a fabulous teacher/guide and the smaller classes allow for lots of constructive feedback and camaraderie. Come and see for yourself, you will love it too. The scented cold cloths at the end are a special welcome treat. Tino pai."

" This was my first time attending hot yoga sessions and it will NOT be my last!! I loved the whole experience from walking through the door to feeling relaxed and rejuvenated after!
Anj is absolutely lovely and offers her warm humour and acceptance to create a safe and comfortable space for everyone.
Thanks Anj, see you again soon! xx "
" Better than normal yoga! "
" As a hot yoga 40 something newbie, I love that for 90 minutes I get to break free from my to-do-list, completely shut off and simply focus on myself and the practice.
I love the intensity, rediscovering my body's strength and increased flexibility after each class. Anj is a fantastic teacher, it's a great stress reliever and an awesome mental and physical challenge! "
" I've been up in Kapiti on holiday and I was missing my normal hot yoga practice. Then I found this gem of a studio had just opened. Anj is a fabulous guide and the 26+2 practice was just the right balance for me: a challenge, a mindful work out and a focusing active meditation. Getting to practice up here in this great studio made this holiday so much more relaxing. I think I'll head up here just to practice at Kapiti Hot Yoga in the future! "
" I loved it!!! It was so hard but I can so see the benefits and feel them."

" A neat studio, handy spot... 26x2 provides a great cornerstone of discipline. Health, heat, great fitness, muscle strength...Love the yogi connection here! "
" Yoga was a completely new and slightly scary prospect for us (two 40 something newbies) but Anj's yoga studio and her confident guidance is exactly what we needed.
Anj brings a personal experience to the sessions, she knows who we are and where we are at in our journey. After 4 sessions, we are hooked and really looking forward to unlocking all the benefits of yoga. Thanks Anj! "
