After friends complained about the difficulty of practicing while traveling for business, Alana Hurov started Hotel Yoga and Fitness Inc. as a mobile business wherein she would teach yogis at top hotels in the Toronto area.

Q&A with Alana Hurov, Owner
Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
Our highly experienced teachers have worked with celebrities, athletes, beginners, politicians, and many more people. We craft each class to meet the needs of each person with lots of modifications to make the classes accessible to every participant. We create a warm, fun, challenging, and relaxing environment.
Sweating to the oldies is acceptable, but sweating to the blues less so. Do you find that certain styles and genres of music generate more intense workouts?
We thrive on fun and soothing music to get people moving and inspired. From U2 to Eminem to classical music. We use all types of music based on the style of class we are offering.
What is a typical session of your program or class like for a student?
Every student is welcomed and introduced to the space and class. We discuss their injuries and goals. They are given warm towels and slippers?mats are also available or they can bring their own. During the class, they are given options for modifications and are encouraged to work at their own level. We encourage people to laugh and have fun during class. At the end of each session, they can enjoy the art and hang out and enjoy complimentary tea. Our goal is to create a luxury fitness experience for everyone.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
For the past two years, the company has been exclusive to only five-star hotels, large companies, celebrities, vineyards, and athletes. For the first time ever, our services will be available to the public. We hope to bring our first class experience to the masses.
