The expertly elastic instructors at College Station Yoga guide people-pretzels of all twisting skill levels through an array of challenging hot-yoga classes. Temperatures in the 900-square-foot studio hover between 85 and 95 degrees in order to prevent injury, encourage detoxification, and discourage undercover snowmen from infiltrating classes. Ace sizzling asanas in the Hot Vinyasa Flow class focused on breath and alignment, or sculpt souls and abdominals into iron lotuses during the Hot Pi-Yo class, which blends Vinyasa flow with Pilates core work. Power yoga classes stretch out creaky limbs with a series of potent postures, preparing bodies for upcoming trips to the symphony folded in violin cases.
Though students should try to bring their own mat, water bottle, bath-sized towel, and zinc-lathered nose to class, towels and mats are available for rental ($1 each). Check out College Station Yoga’s hot-yoga tips for sage pre-class pointers.
