What To Expect

My first impression of the studio was that it was bright, inviting and clean. I was greeted the minute I walked in and was quickly assisted with my trial lesson enrolment. One of the friendly staff members discussed my fitness goals with me and recommended the beginner hot yoga class. There were so many classes to choose from so I was glad they were able to guide me in choosing something that worked best for me.

The locker rooms, separated by gender, were easily accessible and very clean. They had easy-to-use large lockers for all your things, individual shower cubicles with shampoo, conditioner and body soap, and a long shared vanity with a variety of free-for-use amenities like hair dryers and cotton earbuds.

Stepping into the hot lava room for the first time, I immediately felt the heat in the room relaxing my muscles. It was so nice to just lie down on the hot stone floor before the lesson started. You could feel the warmth radiating from the floor pulsing deep into your body and it really felt like it was stripping away any aches and pain from the work day prior.

My instructor for the lesson, Shoco, began the class and guided us through the process. She taught me how to breathe through poses and how to better position myself to get the ultimate stretch. Although the class was conducted in Japanese, the movements were easy to follow as I was mainly just copying what Shoco was doing.

The room’s temperature was around 36° Celsius with 65% humidity, so I was sweating a lot—definitely the most I’ve ever sweated in one yoga lesson. Each stretch and movement felt so much deeper, and I’m naturally not very flexible so the warmth helped me reach positions I couldn’t usually. Shoco ensured we had several breaks during the session to rest and get fresh air outside the room if we needed it. It really felt like it was stripping away any aches and pain.

As I went home I noticed my body feeling so light and warm. My body could have skipped and twirled home if I wanted to but I also felt so calm and relaxed that I was happy to just stroll and enjoy the refreshing walk home. The calmness lasted into the next day when I could still feel my body move with more flexibility. Although I had some slight muscle soreness in locations of my body I had never felt before, it was a satisfying feeling knowing that those areas of my body had been used during the lesson as it was my goal to stretch and move areas of my body I don’t usually in my day to day.

I had a great overall experience with Shoco and the studio as a whole, and I can truly say I’ve never felt this relaxed at a fitness gym before. AC Fit also has no restrictions for those with tattoos so I was happy to hear anyone with ink is welcome to join in!
