Located across the street from Redmond Town Center, Bikram Hot Yoga Redmond is run by a devoted team of yogis. Walking past cheerful black-and-white striped awnings and into a studio with lots of light and 10-foot ceilings, students get ready to practice 26 traditional asanas on an antibacterial rubber floor. The Bikram system—known for its use of heat in excess of 100 degrees—is designed to work every major muscle and organ system while detoxifying the body and boosting flexibility. A certified instructor teaches every class, including the original 90-minute class as well as the 60-minute condensed class that helps students with packed schedules.
At Great Play, kids can explore their existing motor and sports abilities and develop new ones in a non-competitive atmosphere complete with interactive scenes and games projected on the walls. Half a dozen computers control eight projectors while a directional sound system and a dozen sensing systems turn the 3,000-square-foot play space into an Interactive Arena. Kids aged six months to 3rd grade are separated into age-appropriate classes to ensure all young ones get the most out of each class. For younger players, the classes unfold as stories projected in the arena, where young movers can jump into snow hills or limbo on a sunny beach. Older kids will be coached on a range of sports skills, such as basketball dribbling or passing a football. During some classes, the projections transform into interactive games such as a wall of glass bottles that electronically shatter when a ball hits them, providing all the ball-throwing exercise and glass-shattering fun of playing catch in the formal dining room, sans dangerous shrapnel and inconvenient sweep-up.
Since its founding in 1987, Living Lite's weight-loss program has helped thousands of people slim down quickly and almost effortlessly. Instead of simply telling clients to change their eating habits, its practitioners use hypnotic suggestion to root newer, healthier behaviors in the subconscious brains. Clients find themselves exercising regularly and picking more wholesome foods without ever having to think about it consciously. Contrary to popular belief, hypnosis does not induce amnesia, and participants will usually remember everything that happens during the soothing sessions.
From a six-month journey across the Indian subcontinent to graduating as one of the first yogis ever to be certified by Baptiste yoga creator, Baron Baptiste, there’s seldom been a dull moment in Lisa Black’s 12-year history with yoga.

With the help of a fleet of instructors that she personally certified, she brings her wealth of experience to each class she teaches through Shakti Vinyasa Yoga’s four studio locations.
All four studio locations provide a venue for renowned yogis to visit and hold workshops while passing or levitating through town. The brightly lit, hardwood-floored rooms have hosted such experts as Baron Baptiste, Shiva Rea, and Ana Forrest.
