Hot Yoga classes will be officially launched at ORC on October 4th. ORC Members will be able to attend UNLIMITED hot yoga sessions as part of their membership. They already get UNLIMITED Spinning, Yoga, Pilates, Zumba and Group Power and Group Step classes, as well as access to the Club’s fitness centre, children’s play centre, dining facilities and banquet centre.
ORC’s General Manager, Jeff McCarrol, is excited about being able to offer Hot Yoga. “One of our goals at ORC is to keep up with the evolving lifestyle of our members. We consistently strive to add more benefits to club membership by introducing new programs, activities and services. Hot Yoga is an exciting trend in fitness, and there are a lot of people who have seen results from practicing Hot Yoga. It’s great that our members will be able to get the benefits of hot yoga practice at their own club, rather than having to go elsewhere.”
About Hot Yoga
Hot Yoga is described as a series of poses for strengthening and toning the body in a heated, calming and detoxifying environment. The benefits of Hot Yoga include:
• Improves metabolism
• Detoxifies the body (by sweating)
• Strengthens muscles and joints
• Improves flexibility (stretches muscles, ligaments and tendons)
• Optimal humidity improves the immune system and calms the body and mind
• Heat allows for deeper and safer yoga practice and inspires the rejuvenation of internal organs, glands and nervous system
With Hot Yoga on the schedule, the cross training options at ORC are even better—members can choose from a huge range of different activities in order to maximize their results and help them to obtain their fitness and lifestyle goals.
Group Fitness Director, Gloria Atkinson, is excited about the potential of Hot Yoga. She believes that “hot yoga may be the key to losing the last 10 pounds or obtaining the sculpted arms you have been aiming for. It can help optimize your performance in your sport or athletic activity, or improve your golf swing or your tennis serve."
Hot Yoga can also provide an often overlooked opportunity to slow down your activities and rejuvenate your body, mind and spirit. Whatever your reason for participation, ORC's seasoned team of professional instructors will lead you through a beautiful experience that will enlighten and rejuvenate your soul.
