Each of Yoga 101's trained instructors discovered hot yoga for a host of different reasons—to ease the pain of arthritis, to evolve spiritually during a personal crisis, and to get back in shape after a pregnancy, to name a few. With all the attentive sympathies that their backgrounds afford them, the team helps students of all ages and abilities grow in their personal yoga practice. In heated yoga rooms, they guide students toward proper posture alignment as the heated air loosens up muscles for deeper stretches and spurs on a cleansing sweat that helps bodies expel the toxins that collect in the body. The sessions, which range from introductory classes for beginners or guests with physical limitations to those for advanced practitioners, blend poses from Bikram yoga and yogi Jimmy Barkan—a master yoga teacher and one of America's yoga pioneers—as they link breath with movement during more than 25 weekly classes.
