One Hot Yoga studio in Melbourne by Rob Mills
Melbourne-based architectural practice, Rob Mills Architects, have designed the One Hot Yoga project. The contemporary wellness retreat can be found in South Yarra Melbourne, Australia.
Hidden amongst the apartments and car parks of River Street, Studio 2 offers a cooler alternative to traditional hot yoga, its temperate 27 degrees space host to classes that focus more upon practice than heat. Its predecessor and sibling, Studio 1, still caters for those who like it hot, the studio offers a 60-minute session at 37 degrees!
According to the architects: “Housed in a converted factory, the studios have been designed to produce an uplifting and healthy sanctuary for hot yoga lovers. To do this, we combined state-of-the-art design with a low-energy panel heating system – the only one of its kind in Australia. As a result, the space is a pleasure to spend time in, its subtle warmth evoking the ambience of a tropical island.
“From the moment you step inside, it’s clear that One is a studio with a difference. Clean lines, recycled materials and textured fabrics create an environment that resonates with the yoga principles of calmness and contemplation. The glass-fronted foyer offers a gathering place between classes, where visitors can replenish water bottles from the stone fountain or catch up with fellow yogis. Here, polished concrete floors, wide timber benches and a monochromatic colour scheme dressed with Australian artwork create a luxurious setting. Moving down the hall, change rooms tucked behind heavy drapes provide a spa experience in the form of deluxe showers, organic soaps and an Ayurvedic body- and hair-care range created especially for the studio by Rasasara Organic Skinfood, which is also available for purchase.”
Inside each studio, qualified instructors will get you working out to Iyengar, Ashtanga and Jivamukti yoga styles against a soundtrack of contemporary tunes.
