PRIVATE SESSIONS

We are delighted to announce that our experienced and talented teachers are now providing you with the opportunity to book one-to-one yoga classes at Hot Glasgow. Your private class will start with a consultation allowing you to discuss injuries, personal goals, areas where you would like to focus and specifics that you would like to work. This will allow your instructor to tailor the session to really helping you grow in the ways that matter most to you.
You can choose the yoga style you would like to work on and the teacher you would like to work with.   It’s all about YOU.  There is the option to book sessions of 60 or 90 minutes; with or without heat; for a one off session or an ongoing development program.
Whether you want to perfect your favourite pose, train for a competition, increase mobility, heal injuries or just get to know your body better, a private session can be a great way to take your practice to the next level.  You can read more about our teachers backgrounds below.  To book your session or inquire please info@hotyogaglasgow.com  and we will forward your details to the teacher of your choice.

I have practiced with many teachers in different countries, learning something different from each of them - in the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, China, Germany, Israel and the United Kingdom. I feel a deep sense of gratitude for this experience and want to pass on this knowledge to others their yoga journey. I follow the mantra of:

She is trained in the 26 + 2 series, fusion yoga, deep release and "In" yoga. With her lovely gentle teaching style and wicked sense of humour, Ann is our gal for keeping it real.

Anne discovered Bikram in 2016. It came as a shock on her first class that she could touch her toes, but with consistent practice, her strength and flexibility improved beyond her expectations. The most challenging aspect was the workout her mind started to experience:

“There’s something about standing sweating in what’s basically your underwear with 40 strangers that pushes you to become comfortable in your own vulnerability, no masks of clothes or makeup, just you, your mat and you’re perfectly, imperfect self.”

Jaclyn McCann

In 2018 Jaclyn completed my Inferno Hot Pilates (IHP) Teacher Training in Mallorca and proceeded to complete IHP level 2 the following year. In 2019 she followed her passion and continued her yoga journey, completing 200 hours of Vinyasa and Yin Yoga Teacher training. Still wanting to learn more, she completed another 200hrs of Sacred Geometry Vinyasa in the South of France Benjamin Sears and Tatiana Dipillo and continued to complete another 150 hours of training with them."I started practicing Bikram, January 2013 and it changed my life. I practiced 5/6 times weekly thinking of nothing other than my next class. It was the discipline aspect I liked, as it helped me focus on mindfulness, as I had struggled with panic attacks and anxiety. I loved how the practice made me feel mentally and physically.I’m keen to continually learn as much as I can for the overall well-being being for my mind, body, and spirit and I feel extremely grateful to be able to share my learnings with students, hopefully helping to cope with the stresses of life, My mantra I try and live by and wish for others is to have Peace in your mind, Strength in your body, Love in your heart. Namaste"

Isobella Roylance

"Hey Bella here. I moved to Glasgow from the east coast of Australia in October 2019 ready to jet set and travel the UK and Europe for the next couple of years - my plans have certainly changed (as have many others) however I am so glad to return to the studio as an IHP teacher! With the studio right on my doorstep it's been one of my favourite local places to be. I love connecting with people and empowering & motivating others to be their best, so naturally sharing my love for Pilates (& yoga) whilst having a laugh and getting our sweat on has felt like the right fit. Look forward to seeing our regulars and newbies on the mat very soon! "
