In a hot room covered in Himalayan salt, yoga practitioners strike poses and breathe deep, feeling suddenly as if they have been transported to a waterfall or a mountain top after a rainstorm. Rebirth Yoga studio added Himalayan salt to their hot yoga room because numerous fans credit the coral-hued crystals with releasing negative ions, the same ions that make the air feel so crisp after a rainstorm. Himalayan salt’s negative ions help purify the air and bring it into optimal iconic balance, which is said to restore health and wellness to those who spend time in the salt’s presence. Infrared heat warms the salt room, allowing muscles to relax and become more flexible, as friendly, experienced instructors guide practitioners into each twist and pose. Other classes include room-temperature fitness sessions such as Pilates, dumbbell-assisted yoga, Zumba, and bootcamp.
The studio also offers specialty services focused on childbirth, such as prenatal and childbirth classes, doula services, and fertility yoga. And in addition to leading sessions, instructors train students to become yoga instructors, Yoga Birth Method practitioners, and even doulas themselves.
