Welcome to St. Andrews first hot yoga studio!
The Hot House Yoga story began in 2015 when Sarah McLaughlin returned from a month long yoga teacher training course in Thailand, followed her dream and opened the studio in August that year. She quickly created a welcoming space where people of all age ranges and backgrounds could practice together.
In February 2016 I attended the studio for the first time. Having spent 12 years living in Glasgow and working in the music industry there, I needed a change and time to deal with stress and anxiety issues which had begun to worsen so I moved home to Pittenweem to be closer to family. I had been researching ways to deal with these common issues and everything seemed to point me towards yoga. An internet search lead me to Hot House Yoga, I attended the first class I could and since that day I have never looked back. I floated out of class feeling better after 60 minutes in the hot room than I had done in over a year. For me, the connection between breath and body allowed me to completely clear my mind and I fell in love with the practise immediately.
My monthly unlimited pass was used almost every day and as my practise progressed, so did my interest in finding out more and after a little encouragement from Sarah I took the leap and booked to attend the same yoga teacher training course in Thailand for February 2017. That month at the Absolute Sanctuary in Koh Samui was one of the hardest but most rewarding things I've ever done and it changed my life completely. Soon after returning, I began to teach classes at Hot House Yoga around my full time job but was eager to learn more. I attended courses on Vinyasa Yoga, adjustments and even met up with some friends from my time in Koh Samui to attend Yoga Trapeze training in Barcelona in December 2017.
When Sarah approached me at the start of 2018 with her plans to move on and pursue travelling and teaching yoga abroad, I jumped at her offer to take over the business. I will be forever grateful to Sarah for helping me realise a dream I never knew I had! I absolutely love what I do and its such a privilege to continue to grow and develop Hot House Yoga in the community I grew up in.
Everyone's yoga journey is personal to them and at Hot House Yoga I strive to create classes which are accessible but still challenging with focus on alignment and breath work, with classes ranging from high energy Power yoga and Yoga Tone with weights, to deep slow stretching with Yin Yoga and guided meditation. Our studio is a place to sweat, stretch, breathe and laugh together as a community while bringing some balance to our busy lives.
Namaste, Keryn x
What Makes HHY Unique?
Our top priority at Hot House Yoga is to create a warm and welcoming place for ANYONE to come practise hot yoga. The studio is clean and bright with full length mirrors to check alignment and new hardwood floors, but most importantly and what makes HHY unique is that all are welcome here. We've created a space where students, parents, professionals, pensioners, athletes and more can come and comfortably practice together. Leave everything at the door, step into a fresh studio with lovely scents and music that will allow you to be completely present for the duration of your practise.
