WHAT IS THE HOT YOGA HOME DOME?
The Hot Yoga Home Dome is a revolutionary portable, heatable exercise studio designed to be used in the comfort of your own home.
WHO IS IT FOR?
The Hot Yoga Home Dome is for anyone who sees the benefit of having a portable, heatable dome that pops up in minutes to use in their home or while traveling.
Some uses are:
A hot yoga studio
A hot pilates studio
A heated workout/stretching area
A meditation room
A sensory dome
WHAT ARE THE HOME DOME SIZES?
The Home Dome:
The Home Dome is designed to comfortably fit two standard sized yoga mats.
The exterior is 9ft long x 9ft wide. The height is approximately 7.5ft.
The interior is 7ft long x 7ft wide. The height is approximately 7.5ft.
When deflated the Home Dome rolls up to 16 inches diameter x 17 inches height. Smaller than a yoga mat!
The Compact Home Dome:
The Compact Home Dome is designed for those with a smaller space and comfortably fits one standard sized yoga mat. If you don't mind a close practice, you can easily squeeze in two mats.
It's exterior is 9ft long x 7 ft wide. The height is approximately 7.5ft.
The interior is 7ft long x 5ft wide. The height is approximately 7.5ft.
When deflated the Compact Home Dome rolls up to 14 inches diameter x 15 inches height. Small enough to fit in your suitcase!
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO INFLATE/DEFLATE THE DOME?
All of our domes inflate in only 3 minutes!
The deflation of the Home Domes takes around 5 minutes. We recommend factoring in another 5 minutes if you plan to pack your dome away for travel.
HOW HOT DOES IT GET?
As you can imagine, we get a lot of questions about heat.
Our Domes are highly insulated. This means they heat up quickly and retain the heat due to a greenhouse effect. In other words, they get HOT.
Unlike most studios, the heat is retained and continues to build throughout class. You will not find yourself fiddling with the heat or getting that unwelcome blast of cold air mid class in one of our Domes.
Our heating recommendations depend upon your heat preferences.
Your Dome can hit 105 - 110 degrees with this space heater and your attachable floor zipped in. The removable floor is included with your Dome.
If you have any doubts about whether you can create a hot enough environment for your home practice, check out this video from one of our first customers, a dedicated Bikram teacher who said he likes his class "to feel like a volcano." In the studio, he had to crank the heat up to 110 to achieve the heat he desired. In our Dome, he had to sit down and turn off the humidifier when his thermometer read 99 degrees. THIS is what makes our Domes unique.
What do WE use?
The Dome and this space heater is the perfect level of heat for us. We don't add a humidifier because the Dome itself creates enough humidity for us.
When we use the Home Dome, we sometimes use 2 space heaters to speed up the heating process for the larger space.
WHAT ELSE DO I NEED?
The Home Dome includes the structure, a carry case, a fan to inflate the dome, LED lighting and a removable zip in floor made of the same material as the Dome.
Additional equipment may be needed depending upon your intended use (fixed location, indoors, outdoors etc).
Examples of equipment needed may include:
- Extension cord
- Music speaker
- Yoga mats
- Yoga towels
- Anchoring equipment (if used outdoors)
HOW SOON CAN I GET MY HOME DOME?
Most Domes deliver in 3-4 weeks, however, we have select domes that are available for delivery within 1 week.
CAN I CUSTOMIZE MY DOME?
You can call us or contact us here to build your own custom Dome.
HOW DO I CLEAN MY DOME?
We recommend cleaning the surface you will be using your Home Dome on before inflation so that the dome does not get dirty. The dome can be easily cleaned with cleaning wipes while it is inflated.
We also recommend cleaning any sweat from the floor before deflation so that the Dome is dry when packed away.
WHERE CAN I USE MY HOME DOME?
You can use your Home Dome wherever you would like!
So far we have used our domes in:
- MMA studios
- Crossfit studios
- Coffee shops
- Corporate offices
- Regular yoga studios
- Spare rooms
- Living rooms
All domes can be inflated outdoors (weather permitting). The domes are made of lightweight, yet sturdy material so that they can be easily transported. If used outdoors, it is imperative that your dome is properly anchored down and appropriate safety guidelines are followed.
We do not recommend inflating your dome when there are wind speeds in excess of 10 mph.
DO YOU OFFER A WARRANTY?
We offer a 12 month warranty on our Domes and all of the electrical equipment supplied with it.
We are confident you won't need it. Our Domes are built to last.
IS THE DOME ECO-FRIENDLY?
Our Domes are made of recycled Oxford Cloth. We use recycled fabrics to reduce the impact on the environment which makes our Domes highly sustainable.
The interior of the Dome has a non-toxic, environmentally friendly coating applied to increase water resistance and reduce the build up of condensation that occurs in a heated environment.
Our Clear Dome has a built in wall made of PVC which allows for an exterior view. Again, we use recycled materials to reduce the impact on the environment.
Our Domes are highly durable and built for long term use. When used correctly, our Domes are environmentally friendly and do not contribute to planetary waste.
