The instructors at Hot Yoga Plus embody a commitment to wellness through the method's 26 postures. Demonstrating their dedication, the CPR-certified teachers must undergo recertification every three years, ensuring that they can lead classes in the studio's 105-degree heat.
Their 90-minute sessions bend and stretch through Bikram's 26/2 poses in a progressive order, a sequence that both warms and limbers up the body's connective tissues. As the steamy temperatures flush out toxins through sweat, newly oxygenated blood refreshes every part of the physique. The staff encourages guests to cultivate a deep understanding of technique rather than a drive to quickly perfect it, reassuring them that "there is no standard of comparison except yourself."
The studio also offers classic Inferno Hot Pilates and Classic Hot Pilates, a method of exercise designed to stretch, strengthen, and balance the body. Regular practice of Pilates can increase strength and flexibility, improve coordination, posture, and balance, and may help with bone density and joint health.
