For Kelly Meeder, the owner and founder of Smokin' Hot Yoga, hot yoga is about more than just meditation. She views her brand of hot yoga as a way to not only center oneself but to also lose weight, increase flexibility, and enhance athletic performance. In fact, many of the poses resemble calisthenic maneuvers, such as pushups and pull-ups. Kelly and her fellow instructors teach a broad range of classes for all ability levels. Level-one classes are best suited for beginners, whereas level-two sessions are ideal for seasoned yogis and types of bread that need to bake longer.
