It isn't just the instructors at Karma Yoga + Fitness who help students connect with their bodies: the studio space is also vital. A high-efficiency air system generates up to 12 airflow changes every hour, and a UV filter system keeps the air free of toxins, odors, and bacteria. All-natural floors, gently cleaned with eco-friendly soaps, cradle bodies during classes. And yet the most important amenity is the infrared heat?it penetrates deep into muscles to warm students rather than the air around them, improving on the old technique of just eating hot water bottles.
Karma Yoga + Fitness is the brainchild of founder Brenda Wowk. Brenda draws from her yoga studies in India?and experience as a reiki practitioner and personal trainer?to helm a range of heated and non-heated classes tailored to all ages and ability levels. Instructors help students stretch out muscle fibers, loosen joints, and condition their cardiovascular systems in classes spanning styles from hatha to warm yin to ashtanga, each heated to between 85?F and 103?F. The studio also holds advanced workshops, yoga teacher trainings, and a yoga boot camp.
