Temperature Variations in Hot Yoga Studios
Hot Yoga (Yoga classes in which the indoor space is heated to approximately 105° F) is increasing in popularity. It simulates the hot and humid environment of India, where yoga originated. So what does this mean for facility design? Most hot yoga studios do not want to keep their buildings at 105° all the time. This can mean swings in temperature that can be extreme in some cases. When a studio is not in use or used for other activities, some owners adjust the temperature as much as 30° or 40° daily. This sort of variation can have adverse effects of many types of building materials, including the floor. It is important to moderate the temperature changes by not going to extremes. With a little planning and a consultation with one of Tarkett Sports’ local experts, you can also select a flooring type that is more likely to tolerate temperature swings.
