Hot Yoga Plus (formerly Hot Yoga Nashville) promises three things. The studio's heated room reaches temperatures of up to 100 degrees to summon sweat from pores. Certified yoga instructors guide participants through various series of asana in seven types of yoga. The "Plus" refers to the studio's less tangible aspects, such as the welcoming sense of community fostered among its students and teachers. The teachers insist that their students leave the outside world behind and focus solely on the yogic moment at hand, carving out a portion of their day to live totally in the present. This philosophy draws praise from attendees such as Senator Bill Frist and his smart phone, which is overworked from trying to unriddle the mysteries of the universe.
