What is Hot 26 Plus?

Hot 26 Plus is an amazing yoga class created around the traditional Hot 26 Series. This class allows for all practitioners to grow and evolve their practice at their own pace. Class is set to music and in second set the instructor offers students a chance to try 2-5 variations of poses in the second set. The class is for ALL LEVELS and super fun way to get your yoga therapy in!

Students and teachers love this class because it allows us the freedom to practice yoga with a little more fun and intuition. The music adds a fun ambiance and the poses change from day to day so our body loves it too!

We regularly lead trainings at Hot Yoga Asheville and around the US. Adi Westerman can also travel to studios and train teachers on site. Reach out to [email protected] if you’d like to schedule a training.

Why Hot 26 Plus?

Our two day training is great for students and teachers alike. Designed with Hot 26 teachers in mind, the 100 page training manual comes with 2-5 variations for each yoga pose, dialogue and benefits for each pose. Students are welcome to join the training (though they will not be ready to teach without a foundation of 26/2 training.)

The training includes a 95 page full color manual of poses and second set variations. Each variation will include benefits of the pose, instructions on how to enter and exit the poses safely, and images of the poses with close up views of grips/binds/and more. We also have created over 15 playlists that sync perfectly with the class. YA Continuing education certificate will be provided upon completion of the course.

The Value Is In The Details

Hot 26 Plus is completely turn key for anyone already offering 90 minute 26/2 (aka Bikram) hot yoga classes. Students will love the structure of it too because it holds the same timing as the traditional series. Students who want to stick with the 26/2 can.. while those who want to explore other options can switch things up. A common question I get is, “Are the other postures all from the Advanced Series?” The answer is, “Nope. The variations have been pulled from many different lineages of yoga. Some poses progress to an advanced variation, but many are not any harder than a Bikram class. In fact, some poses might even be easier for those days you want to take it easy.”

Sudden progress! One studio owner who has begun offering Hot 26 Plus said, “We’ve even seen sudden progress in some of our long timers. One man who was stuck in a rut during Standing Head to Knee instantly found progress in that pose after exploring some of the variations offered in the Plus class.”

When we get outside of our yoga box and explore new shapes, our neurological pathways get reset and redirected so we can then find access to new form. A fresh approach to the good ol’ 26/2 is what I was after. And we’ve done it! The training is open to students as well as teachers.

Here are some sample pages from the manual I created… because if you’re anything like me… I need to see what I’m gettin’! I know you will LOVE this 100 page manual and will reference it for years to come.

Much love yogis! Let me know if you’ve got any questions!
