Yoga Room HVAC (Heating Ventilation & Air Conditioning) System

The Hot Yoga studio is equipped with a ‘State of the Art’ air conditioning system, specifically designed to meet the exacting significant demands of Bikram Yoga. The system is capable of raising the studio environment to 40°C and maintaining it, within a close temperature tolerance throughout each yoga session no matter what size of class or external temperature. Bikram Yoga is practiced in a room heated to 105°F (40.5°C) temperature, with a humidity of 40%. The air within the studio is continuously replenished with over 1000 litres per second of fresh air, which is filtered and conditioned before being introduced into the studio. Being ever mindful to avoid any adverse environmental impact, our HVAC system is fitted with ‘Heat Recovery’ technology. This technology recovers over 85% of the energy we use thus reducing our overall ‘Carbon Footprint`. The studio treads lightly, reducing toxins from the environment as well as your body!

Electronic Sensors for Temperature/Humidity/Co2

Wireless state of the art sensor technology with the highest reliability of data transmission. This system will provide the combined measurement of temperature, humidity, and Co2 levels in the yoga room. The information will be relayed to our computers so we can study the humidity, temperature, and Co2 levels throughout the day/week/month during different times & sizes of class. As we gather this data it will allow us to better fine tune the studios HVAC system so we can create the most optimum & consistent Bikram Yoga temperature & environment. 

Flotex Eco-Carpet

Flotex combines the practicality of resilient flooring with the slip resistant and acoustic properties usually associated with textiles. Being completely waterproof, Flotex is also the only truly washable textile floor covering. Flotex offers a warm, comfortable, hygienic floor covering that is suitable for any commercial specification. Thanks to the highly effective anti-microbial treatment Sanitized®, Flotex offers constant protection against bacteria, including MRSA, E-coli and the development of dust mites. It is also approved by Allergy UK.

Environmental Water System (EWS) - Whole Studio Water Conditioning

All the water we use at the studio is conditioned via the industry leading ‘Hydromag’ unit to eliminate the problems associated with ‘Hard’ water without the need to use harsh chemical treatments. By treating the water in this way, we believe, will leave you with softer, smoother skin and more manageable hair.

Rinnai Hot Water Storage Vessels and Heaters

At our studio we understand the importance of being able to enjoy a hot / warm shower after a session of yoga and, indeed the frustration, if hot water is not available. We have therefore installed 2 Rinnai high capacity water heaters, configured to provide maximum output with fast recovery. The system is capable of supplying hot water to all our showers and faucets simultaneously.

Humidity Control

A perfect Bikram Yoga room environment requires good air quality and strictly controlled temperature and humidity. Our HVAC system has room and in duct humidity sensors controlling the integral steam humidifier to maintain precise humidity of the studio.
