As the Phoenix Valley’s very first Bikram yoga studio, The Foundry was hot when it wasn’t cool. Since then they’ve expanded their offerings while remaining true to their roots preparing their students for a truly trans-formative experience that molds a fitter, healthier and happier version of themselves. Their unique blend of classes offers something for everyone transforming the body, mind and spirit.
The Foundry is committed to providing top-notch facilities to create an ideal experience for their students at all locations. To get a better understanding, here’s how every aspect of their studios were designed with the aforementioned goal in mind.
All of their studios feature spacious locker rooms, nicely stocked with all the necessary amenities to make pre and post-class experiences enjoyable. Both the men’s and women’s spaces have ample storage, showers, vanities, and lockers with complimentary locks. A drinking fountain with filtered water and a bottle filling station is also available.
Their studio rooms feature state-of-the-art equipment to provide students an optimal experience in the most comforting and healthiest environment possible. Their recently renovated Paradise Valley location has three studio rooms providing a variety of classes throughout the day.
Their HVAC system controls the heat, humidity and air quality throughout the studio rooms to create the perfect environment for hot yoga, hot pilates classes and more. It is vitally important to them that they offer a controlled environment for students by achieving the targeted temperature and humidity level.
Humidity is a very important part of the studio’s class experience. Using sophisticated humidifiers allows them to provide a consistent environment and maintain optimal levels of humidity.
CUSTOM FRESH AIR INTAKE SYSTEM
Their custom fresh air intake system allows them to quickly exchange the stale air in the room with fresh air. This provides ideal oxygen levels, optimizing the benefits of their classes for their students.
ULTRAVIOLET UV KIT
Each of their studio rooms is equipped with a UV light system specifically designed to disinfect the HVAC unit, and to freshen air, fight odor and reduce indoor air pollution without the use of chemicals. Additionally, this system also increases the energy efficiency of their HVAC units, minimizing their carbon footprint.
Proper flooring is an essential component of a positive hot yoga experience. They use two types of flooring depending on the room.
Tandus-Centiva Custom Flooring – The special flooring has the look of carpet but don’t be fooled. This type of floor is perfect for the hot yoga room. Its nylon fibers are anti-microbial, and a non-porous, waterproof vinyl backing provides a great non-slip surface that can be easily cleaned.
Zebra Flooring – Designed specifically for use in hot yoga studios. It is also anti-microbial, waterproof, slip resistant, and gentle on the feet and joints. This flooring has a tatami textured vinyl surface, providing for sure footing and shock absorption. Additionally, it does not release particles, filaments or harmful gases, providing a dust-free, non-toxic and hypoallergenic environment. This flooring is installed in all three studio rooms at their Paradise Valley studio.
All floors are cleaned nightly and steam cleaned weekly.
Their yoga rooms were designed to maximize their insulating properties. Double drywall and closed-cell spray foam has been used to insulate the studio rooms ceiling and support the insulated roof. Another benefit of their flooring is its insulation properties, which prevent heat and humidity from escaping through sub-flooring, further reducing our energy expenditure and carbon footprint.
