Corralling students within a heated studio space, Hot Yoga’s instructors guide a schedule of Vinyasa-style classes for beginning and experienced yogis alike. During open sessions, instructors walk students through poses at their own pace and walk around the room, helping attendees tailor the poses’ difficulty to match individual experience levels by offering minor adjustments and shouting instructions in Aramaic. The practice space’s high temperatures work to dampen brows, flush out bodily toxins, and loosen up any ice-encrusted joints. Students intent on steadily increasing their regimens’ intensity can work their way up to Level II–III classes, where they’ll perform more complicated poses such as backbends and inversions and learn to hold stretches for extended periods of time, leaving students fully stretched and more energized than an electric eel in a bathtub full of batteries.
As a registered 200-hour teacher-training school with Yoga Alliance, Hot Yoga imbues aspiring instructors with the knowledge and people skills necessary to lead their own Hatha- and Vinyasa-style yoga classes. In three weeks, aspiring teachers meet for eight- to nine-hour sessions, much like book-club discussions of the Oxford English Dictionary. Students earn 180 hours of group training with a senior instructor, and accrue more than 40 hours of personal study. Although the program covers erudite subjects including theory, philosophy, and anatomy and physiology, it emphasizes hands-on experience by asking pupils to lead practice classes. After each in-the-field experience, pupils receive constructive feedback from instructors, peers, and sentient Speak & Spells to help improve their teaching skills. When the program concludes, Yoga Alliance allows graduates to continue with the process of registering as card-carrying yoga instructors.
Though Hot Yoga sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
The Yoga Fusion Studio
At Yoga Fusion, students gather in heated and non-heated studios for 60- to 80-minute stretching sessions that limber up the body, purge toxins from the blood stream, and accelerate the natural healing process. Instructors primarily teach Vinyasa-style yoga, which connects asana through flowing movements supported by deliberate breathing exercises. But students can also aid in their own muscle recovery by reserving massage and bodywork sessions designed to holistically support overall wellbeing.
In addition to yoga lessons, Yoga Fusion's staff unlocks the art of instruction itself, offering both a 200-hour and 500-hour registered-yoga-teacher certification course in accordance with the teaching standards of the Yoga Alliance.
