Hot yoga became popular after a study concluded the high heat was the main reason grandpas normally emerge from gym saunas feeling relaxed, limber, and totally nude. Experience the benefits of warmth without wishing for a blindfold with today's deal for Riverflow Yoga in Lambertville. Choose from the following options:
- For $8, you get one hot-yoga class, including a towel rental, mat rental, and one bottle of water (a $23 total value).

Riverflow Yoga offers tension-melting hot yoga classes seven days a week for folks of all fitness levels. During each 90-minute class, masters of heat guide students in performing 26 muscle-releasing poses in a 100+-degrees-Fahrenheit room. Standard sessions cater to all levels, and music classes allow more experienced stretchers to rock out while rocking precarious postures ($20 per class). Mid-pose perspiring is prevalent and encouraged, and long-lasting benefits such as decreased blood pressure, increased flexibility, and weight loss far outweigh any extra deodorant expenditures. Riverflow equips students with a rental yoga mat, towel, and bottled water ($3 value), but be sure to properly prepare for each class to prevent dehydration and the real-time situational comedy of showing up overdressed.
For stress that simply won’t sweat itself out, try a 15-minute hot Migun massage ($20 value), which can be redeemed after your class or any time during studio hours. The Migun thermal-massage bed employs acupressure, helium heat, jade-stone healing, and infrared rays, combining Eastern and Western techniques in a healing blend that rivals the 1972 party that Nixon threw on his arrival to China in its cross-cultural significance.
Riverflow Yoga owner Rhonda Uretzky lives and breathes yoga. After 40 years of dedicated practice—and with every member of her immediate family either teaching or practicing yoga—she has come to think of it not just as a workout, but as a way of life. Aided by an experienced team of instructors and sweat-inducing temperatures that work to purge bodies of toxins, Rhonda’s Hot 26 Yoga classes focus on stretches that nurture physical flexibility and foster spiritual exploration.
Riverflow Yoga's studio, located in a former laceworks, features free parking and uses a combination of heat to boost blood flow, ease sore joints, stretch tight muscles and tone bodies during hot yoga sessions. When Rhonda's guiding students through each class’ 26 poses, she elongates spines and unkinks vestigial tails with hands-on adjustments. Her hands, adept and perceptive from so much practice, can feel when bodies are tense; a mere touch can tell her where each student needs the most attention.
