Time Out says
Feel good and do good at this Rosebery studio offering yoga with a conscious
Modo Yoga is an international hot yoga community with over 70 studios worldwide. Classes are heated to a toasty 37 degrees; they say the heat detoxifies the skin, blood and tissues whilst strengthening muscle. The practice is built on seven philosophical pillars, which comprise health, accessibility, protection of the planet, community support, active service, living to learn and cultivating peace.
And we sure get positive vibes when we visit Modo Yoga’s Sydney studio in Rosebery. We’re offered hot tea as we step in from the cold for the Karma class, a by-donation-only class, which has the same structure as a traditional Modo series, but with all proceeds going to local charities. It’s jam-packed with keen yogis of all ages and abilities.
But don’t expect relaxing stretches. There are elements of calm and opportunities to rest, but first you endure a 60-minute full-body cardio workout. We can see our poses in the long mirror at the front of the class, which helps us to keep our alignment in check as we transition from standing postures to a floor sequence that targets the upper body, abdominals and spine.
The change rooms are clean and spacious, with showers and plenty of storage space. Hair dryers, straighteners and even hair ties are provided, but be sure to bring your own shampoo and conditioner.
For a standard drop-in class, the rate is $22, or you can purchase a month of unlimited yoga for $55.
