Captained by seasoned yogini Bertha Diaz, Firefly Hot Yoga caters to beginning, intermediate, and athletic cross-training students with heated and unheated classes. The studio’s schedule delivers a variety of classes, including Power Vinyasa sessions, which beckon attendees with an elevated thermostat and a dynamic sequences of poses. The poses help students bolster stamina and concentration, and the heat detoxifies cells and leaves muscles as relaxed as a hammock in zero gravity. Eschewing the heated practice space entirely, Gentle Therapeutic yoga enlists slower-paced, restorative poses that soothe chronic pains, baby injured muscles, and buoy postures with such props as blankets, straps, and teddy bears stuffed with marshmallows. During private lessons, instructors tailor their teachings to each student’s skill level, along with their fitness and relaxation goals, taking time to ensure proper postural alignment for maximum yogic benefit. Enlisting an arsenal of advanced stretching techniques, yoga props, and suspension apparatuses, private lessons imbue attendees with an understanding of form and control that can prepare students for their everyday yoga practice or bimonthly yoga duels.
