Sarah Wartell, a trained practitioner in thai-yoga bodywork, yoga, and Japanese reiki therapy, helms a studio in which she calls on all three holistic modalities to achieve optimal physical and mental healing. During yoga classes for all abilities, the studio fills with the sounds of controlled breathing, stretch-induced groans, and high-pitched yelps of contentment from downward-facing dogs. Agency shifts to the therapist during thai-yoga bodywork sessions that achieve heightened states of relaxation with a blend of focused compression and assisted poses. To practice their similarly holistic art, reiki therapists draw on ancient Japanese techniques designed to shuffle life-force energies around the body. Sarah’s mission to relax bodies and minds simultaneously is reflected in her studio’s décor, which features artwork depicting peace signs and leafy trees.

Inside an 800-square-foot room heated between 95?100 degrees, students sweat out their doubts as they flow through a set of 26 interconnected poses that unlock their inner potential. While a scene like this may seem ripped from the comics, the secret training regimen of an elite fighting force, it?s just business as usual for the trainers at Hot Yoga and Wellness Center. Leading four to five 60- to 90-minute classes each day, instructors tap into time-tested Eastern techniques that enhance flexibility, improve circulation, and flush toxins. The instructors also host special programs such as a 30-day challenge, during which participants practice hot yoga for 30 consecutive days. After class, guests can shower and use the changing rooms. In the lobby, they can savor a tea or espresso while browsing the facility?s stock of nutritional supplements, which use natural materials to bolster bodies more effectively than a treadmill made entirely out of apple cores. The studio also offers a selection of nonslip surface yoga mats, skin firming wraps, and zen-inspired bracelets made with manmade turquoise, Chinese crystals, and dyed jade.

No one knows the healing power of yoga therapy as intimately as Sheri Glackin who, after living with chronic back pain caused by four herniated discs, was able to heal herself with yoga therapy in a few months. She knew immediately that she wanted to teach others how to heal without invasive surgeries or body swaps, and she became certified as a yoga therapist and Reiki practitioner.
Today, her yoga-therapy sessions help ailing clients repair their bodies through hands-on yoga postures, breathing techniques, and meditation. Yoga therapy is more like physical therapy than traditional yoga, and it is tailored to treat chronic pain and stress with specific movements. Sheri also balances energy with relaxing Reiki sessions.
