Although most chiropractors tell patients how important it is to exercise, they don't necessarily take a hands-on approach to making sure patients follow through on it. Doctor of Chiropractic Jayne Kwiatkowski actually leads patients in yoga and holistic fitness classes at Tomoka Spine & Posture Institute, helping them rehabilitate their bodies and improve their overall wellness. She relies on her anatomical knowledge and more than 20 years of experience as a yoga and Pilates instructor and her lifetime of dance expertise during classes that take place inside a fitness studio equipped with a yoga wall and ballet barre.
Her yoga classes help restore mobility to bodies, and her ballet barre classes motivate clients to develop long, lean muscles with their challenging moves for beginners to advanced students. The workout can also be used for posture correction, lumbar stabilization, flexibility, and help women discover their inner ballerina.
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.
