Hi I'm Michelle, I'm the founder of Peppermint hot yoga and wellbeing Ltd.
When I was creating Peppermint Hot Yoga Studio, I knew I wanted a space that would incorporate all aspects of health and wellbeing. I am a firm believer that we can't be happy in just one area of life, that all areas of the 'self', mind, body, and soul, have to be balanced and complement each other equally.
I wanted a central place in which a person could walk in with an issue and find something that would help them. Whether that be yoga (hot or non-hot) which involves not only working on the physical self, but the mind and spirit too (if that's your thing), a massage therapy, an holistic treatment, a talking therapy, or a general beauty treatment (who doesn't feel good when they are looking their best?)
That is why here at Peppermint we offer a variety of therapies that focus on treating the body as a whole rather than separate entities.
How it all started
Where did the name Peppermint come from?
Peppermint is one of my favourite essential oils that has an amazing energising scent, the ability to relax muscles and alleviate headaches, plus many more natural benefits. That is why on entering the Peppermint, you will be transported into pure serenity through all of the senses.
All staff here at Peppermint hold the same values and beliefs with regards to promoting fully holistic health and wellbeing. We adhere to a strict code of ethics within the centre, where we treat each individual with the upmost respect, through a non-judgmental attitude, and providing a safe, friendly and welcoming space for all.
I hope you enjoy our little place of natural health and wellbeing in the world as much as I have enjoyed creating it for you.
I hope to see you soon.
What is Hot Yoga?
Hot yoga is yoga that is performed within a heated room. The environment will usually be between 27 - 38 degrees Celsius. However, here at Peppermint, we also have the added element of providing 40% humidity.
Nourishes the skin
The main aim for hot yoga is sweat, and lots of it! This in turn nourishes the skin by encouraging nutrient- rich blood to the skin cells, which nourishes the skin from the inside out.
By turning up the heat, you are already warming the muscles. This allows you to stretch a little further, giving a greater range of motion.
Burns more calories
Due to the added heat, the yoga practice can become more challenging, therefore burning more calories than a traditional yoga session.
Provides a cardiovascular boost
Due to the more challenging nature of hot yoga, striking poses in high heat can give your heart, lungs and muscles a more vigorous workout.
