The Yoga Studio
Our Zebra flooring is especially designed for Hot Yoga use. It is antimicrobial, waterproof, slip resistant and gentle on feet and joints. It prevents sanitary and safety issues that commonly arise in heated studios with carpet or wood flooring, such as microbial growth, stench, unstable and slippery flooring, insect attraction, too little cushion and more. Unlike carpet, the tatami-textured vinyl surface of Zebra flooring does not absorb water nor stay wet and is specially designed to allow for moisture evaporation, preventing fungi, mildew and bacterial growth. Zebra flooring also does not release particles, filaments or harmful outgases like carpet, providing a dust-free, less toxic and hypoallergenic environment.
Our specialty HVAC system controls the heat, humidity and air quality in the Yoga studio to ensure that target temperature and humidity levels are met in each class, that our students' experience is consistent, and that they are breathing the cleanest air possible. Our Energy Recovery Ventilator (ERV) provides fresh air to the room while exhausting stale air. It helps to maintain appropriate oxygen levels in the room, which aids in preventing students from feeling dizzy, nauseated, or light-headed, symptoms commonly occurring in a hot yoga room that is not properly ventilated.
A good mat is a yogi's best friend, and in a hot room, a mat towel is a tantamount. Our rental mats are Manduka Pro mats, which are sustainable, high performance, slip resistant, emission free, 100% latex free and great for hot yoga. Our super absorbent, quick drying, recyclable, microfiber Manduka eQua Mat Towels provide an additional slip-resistant, hygienic surface. Mat and towel rental ($2 each) is free to Thrive Members.
