Lara Rubin Alexiou, head of Steamtown Hot Yoga, has spent more than a decade as a yoga instructor. She's certified in the Bikram method of hot yoga, a strengthening and therapeutic discipline which, like all hot yoga classes, helps loosen muscles and enhance flexibility.
At her studio, she and her team teach it in various styles. Some classes emphasize Vinyasa's linked, flowing postures or the meditative quality of doing yoga in total silence.
