EVER fancied trying hot yoga? Now is your chance - with a studio hosting an free open weekend.

Hot Yoga Health – Newport’s first state-of-the-art hot yoga studio based on North Street – will host free classes and talks for people of all ages and abilities on Saturday, October 9, and Sunday, October 10.

Visitors can learn about hot yoga, which involves carrying out yoga poses in 40 degree heat and 40 per cent humidity, which detoxifies the body, increases metabolism, and improves muscle tone, flexibility, and strength.

Business owner, Suzie Latham, said: “The signature class Hot Classic is suitable for any age or ability and leaves the students generally feeling great.

“This series has ignited the enthusiasm and passion of a whole community of yoga lovers at Hot Yoga Health, many of whom have never previously practised yoga but kept coming back because of the amazing differences in their physical and mental health.”
