FITNESS: Is hot yoga Liverpool’s latest craze?
By Jason Porter, My Fitness Agent
Liverpool is now home to some of the best hot yoga studios. We have chosen 3 that we think you should consider if you are planning to join in the craze that seems to be sweeping Liverpool’s fitness scene.
There are a number of places throughout Liverpool offering everyone a chance to try yoga in 80 – 120 degree heat.
Hot Yoga first arrived in Liverpool over three years ago when Yoganation opened on County Road
Yoganation was Liverpool’s very first hot yoga centre. Yoganation pronounced ‘Yoganeshan’ is inspired by Ganeoh. The studio is an oasis in the north end of Liverpool. When you walk into Yoganation you feel like you have walked into a yoga studio in India.

Another yoga centre in Liverpool is Planet Yoga. Planet Yoga is based in the student district of the city, just off smithdown road. Planet Yoga is a family run business. The owner once practiced yoga at Yoganation. The owner Martin Snr and his son Martin Jnr now operate the excellent yoga studio through their passion for yoga. With a variety of classes available and hand painted wall murals in the hot room, Planet Yoga is certainly a lovely place to take a yoga class.

Our third yoga studio is Happiness Yoga based in Allerton. Happiness Yoga is a lovely light yoga studio. It has an almost clinical feel to the centre and has an excellent large hot room. Happiness Yoga has a large variety of classes to suit everybody. Former Hollyoaks actress Gemma Merna, who recently trained as a yoga instructor now runs regular classes at Happiness Yoga.
