Within Asana Body Mind Hot Yoga’s cozy studio, overhead panels generate the heat that makes students sweat in temperatures of up to 40 degrees Celsius. Since each panel warms only the students and their mats—rather than the air itself—the heat can better penetrate their skin, encouraging healthy perspiration to oust bodily toxins.
Employing the skills he learned while studying in the Indian province of Kerala, studio director Jason Campbell leads yogis through series of poses during a variety of hot-yoga classes, helping them hone their internal rhythm and stretch their bodies while building peace of mind. Jason and the other instructors walk students through each pose and adjust their postures as needed as they bend and sway atop springy cork floors designed to minimize the impact on joints and keep students afloat on the sea of sweat. To encourage a sense of community within the studio, students are encouraged to socialize after class, and staffers serve shots of nutrient-rich wheatgrass juice upon request before and after each session.

By working with the body to promote natural healing, Healthy Lives Clinic’s nationally certified and licensed acupuncturist dispels acute and chronic pain by controlling energy flow throughout the body. The hair-thin needles used in acupuncture relieve pain by producing an analgesic response in the body similar to massaging your insides with menthol cough drops. During the initial 2- to 2.5-hour visit, a practitioner records vital signs and pinpoints health concerns to formulate a comprehensive diagnosis before beginning treatment. Stimulating specific energy points provokes the body’s natural healing response, improving overall functionality while relieving bothersome symptoms such as lower back pain, nausea, or melancholy zebra stripes. Widely varying conditions, from common headaches to rheumatoid arthritis, can show improvement following the pinprickery of acupuncture points.
Dr. Katie Short teaches her patients how healing happens from within. But she does more than talk about it; she demonstrates the body’s ability to recover from a wide range of ailments by performing strictly noninvasive and drug-free techniques. After a thorough consultation and exam, she sets to work stimulating the body’s internal balancing mechanisms with manual spinal adjustments. To round out her services, she works elbow to elbow with licensed acupuncturist Jessie Maxwell. Jessie triggers some of the same healing energies as Dr. Short, but with hair-thin needles instead of adjustments.
