|Class type:||Hot Vinyasa 1|
|Class description:||A dynamic practice in a heated room focusing on moving the body along with the breath. The experience in this class is one of fluidity, motion and heat. Poses are generally held for short periods of time and emphasis on the rhythm of the breath is encouraged with the purpose of aligning and focusing the mind. Some pranayama, chanting and meditation may be included.
The heat adds to the physical effort required to do the postures and aids to condition the body. This class is suitable for students with some Vinyasa experience looking to have a challenging and dynamic experience. No full inversions are included in these classes. Some preparations for inversions and Level 2 postures may be introduced, with options for Level 1 students to ease the transition from Level 1 to Level 2 classes. Room temperature: 35-38 °C.|

|Gopal hails from Tamilnadu, Chennai (city of temples) in southern India . He began practising yoga from the age of 9 for fun but slowly found it had fused into his blood and breath. He has always loved sport and its challenges. Gopal has participated in numerous yoga competitions, acclaimed championships and title awards - but later he felt yoga is far beyond sports and competitions, it can be the best tool for any sport.|
