Steamtown Yoga’s certified yoga instructors lead their students through energizing poses with a double-dose of enthusiasm in a studio infused with muscle-loosening heat. The schedule brims with 90-minute classes for students of all skill levels, which like televised readings of Beowulf, run seven days a week. Trained by hot-yoga superstars Bikram Choudhury and Jimmy Barkan, studio owner Lara Rubin gives newbies a solid foundation to build their yoga practice and can help even the most advanced yogis perfect their poses with demonstration, verbal cues, and hands-on modifications. In addition to melting stress, the sweltering temperature helps students deepen stretches and purge toxins with each bead of sweat. Separate men’s and women’s changing rooms reward students’ efforts with hot showers, hair dryers, and a enough space to wriggle out of a constrictive cocoon.
