The instructors at Hot House Yoga, founded in 2006 by Shelly Kwiatkouski aka Uma Dasai, have a refreshing way of delivering fresh blood to the heart: headstands. During inverted urban flow classes—targeted to seasoned yogis—instructors teach their pupils how to fluidly flip upwards, relying on balance rather than brute strength to keep legs in the air. The studio has been voted as the readers' choice for best yoga studio many times—including 2012—in The Daytona Beach News–Journal. Instructors focuses on creating spiritual awareness and a spirit of social activism. They also offer classes that take place in a hot classroom to spur detoxification in addition to yoga’s traditional benefits, which include stress release, weight management, improved circulation and sleep, and a boost in bodily energy.
Hot House Yoga not only functions as a yoga studio, but also as a training school for future yoga instructors, with classes that include both 200 and 500 hour training regimens.
