Certified yoga instructor Molly Cornell and her staff at Melt Hot Yoga guide guests through a series of flowing poses in a studio heated to 105 degrees. Yogis of all experience levels gather on the yoga room's vinyl mats to wind their way through a series of 26 poses paired with breathing exercises.
As the morning begins, a row of toddlers takes turns tumbling feet over head while their parents guide them into the correct movement. Later, school-age kids sit in a circle, legs stretched before them as they try to touch their toes. The trained staff of My Gym Children's Fitness Center imbue kids with life skills through music, physical activities, and games. Many classes incorporate physical exercises with social and developmental skills, while summer camps are also available seasonally. All classes take place in a well-padded room, led by staff trained in child development and fluent in Muppet.
Steamtown Yoga’s certified yoga instructors lead their students through energizing poses with a double-dose of enthusiasm in a studio infused with muscle-loosening heat. The schedule brims with 90-minute classes for students of all skill levels, which like televised readings of Beowulf, run seven days a week. Trained by hot-yoga superstars Bikram Choudhury and Jimmy Barkan, studio owner Lara Rubin gives newbies a solid foundation to build their yoga practice and can help even the most advanced yogis perfect their poses with demonstration, verbal cues, and hands-on modifications. In addition to melting stress, the sweltering temperature helps students deepen stretches and purge toxins with each bead of sweat. Separate men’s and women’s changing rooms reward students’ efforts with hot showers, hair dryers, and a enough space to wriggle out of a constrictive cocoon.
