Walking into Planet Yoga in south Liverpool was a truly welcoming experience, and this small studio tucked away has a lot to offer. They run Hot yoga classes all day everyday as well as Hot Pilates and I was extremely pleased to find this little hidden gem.
Martin Bone who owns the studio, originally trained as tennis coach, but as a keen yoga enthusiast who practises twice a day, he spotted an opportunity in the area, and since the studio opened in January, they have already seen over 1250 students come through the doors.
The atmosphere in the studio is a very relaxed one, you can pre order your green smoothie on arrival and will be waiting for you in the fridge for your departure. Free herbals teas and sweets are available before and after your class, and they have two very relaxing chill out areas to escape the studio for a bit of downtime and refreshments before you go in.
The studio can hold 22 people and is a very intimate setting with a serine low-level lighting – all that’s needed for your yoga class – as we know it all happens on our mat andnowhere else.
The great thing is all classes are different. It’s not just a set Hot yoga sequence they follow, they welcome experienced and new teachers who can bring their knowledge and ways of teaching into each individual class which is great for furthering your practice and learning new techniques and poses – so you can practise Hot Flow as well as Jivamukti.
And as you depart the hot box after an amazing class there’s a lovely cold towel waiting to cool you down!
If you’re in the area, I highly recommend a visit to Planet Yoga.
