What type of heating system do you use?
Bella Vida uses an infrared heating system, similar to the heat natural sunlight gives off, making it a form of heat that is easily processed by our bodies.  Infrared heat is suitable for those who may experience respiratory issues due to its organic element.  This heating system does not recirculate air like most systems making it much more hygienic. Infrared increases circulation, flexibility, and detoxification to create an amazing cleansing effect at the cellular level.  Who knew that a heating system could do so much!

How hot does the studio get?
The room reaches 90 degrees during our heated classes.

Do I bring my own mat, and props?
Though we encourage the use of your own mat,  you are more than welcome to rent our Jade Yoga mats for $3.00. We have plenty of blocks, bolsters, and straps to use free of charge!

How long do the classes run for?
Our classes vary depending on the time the class is offered.  We offer 60 and 75 minute classes depending on the day and time. Be sure to check the schedule here to see how long your class runs.

Who can take heated yoga?
Heated yoga is open to all levels - it starts with you! We encourage you to come as you are ready to accept the challenge.

How do I reserve my spot for class?
The Bella Vida team utilizes a platform called Mindbody so that students can easily reserve their spots in class online.  Please follow the link provided under ‘schedule’ on our site to book online or use the Mindbody app on your mobile device to reserve your spot.  Please be sure to sign in for class prior to coming to ensure that you have ample space to practice your flow comfortably.
