Sedona Hot Yoga
Cottonwood Hot Yoga
Offer MORE than just "hot yoga."
It's true that we LOVE hot yoga! But we also offer many beneficial non-heated yoga classes as well, from relaxing Yin Yoga and Deep Stretch Unwind classes, to Kundalini Yoga, Pilates, Goddess Yoga, and advanced Asana Practices.
We strive to provide well-rounded yoga opportunities to suit just about everyone. Those who like it hot, those who like it not, and those who enjoy both!
Our "Unlimited" memberships give you the best opportunity to attend as many classes as you like, at both our beautiful locations
Why Hot Yoga?
Hot Yoga facilitates deeper stretching, injury prevention, stress and tension relief, and systematically stimulates and restores health to every muscle, joint, and organ of the body. 60 minutes in our state of the art temperature and moisture controlled studio creates approximately the same amount of perspiration as a 10 kilometer run!
Studies show that most of us have between 400 and 800 chemical residues stored in the fat cells of our bodies. When our bodies exceed the limit that we can excrete, we begin to store these toxins, which greatly compromises our physiological and psychological health and leads to chronic disease. Perspiration is recognized by health practitioners worldwide as perhaps the most effective method of removing both difficult chemical and heavy metal toxins from the body.
The temperature during class triggers the body’s thymus to produce white blood cells and killer T cells, which increases the generation of antibodies and the production of interferon, resulting in a strengthened immune system. The heat also causes the tiny blood vessels in the skin to expand and the heart rate to rise, increasing blood circulation.
Sedona Hot Yoga was founded in 2010 by Jennifer Richards. Jennifer suffered from chronic migraines, degenerative disc disease and multiple bulging discs. After being put on bed rest and recommended for surgery, Jennifer decided to go against the status quo and use her life savings to instead open a hot yoga studio in hopes a daily heated yoga practice would heal her spine. Amazingly, the leap of faith was the perfect cure. Not only is she pain free, she lost over 50 pounds from her heaviest weight and is a champion for those seeking to become the healthiest, happiest version of themselves possible. Since the first studio opened in 2010, Jennifer has since added a second location in Cottonwood, AZ and founded a healthy fast-food restaurant called Wholesome Fast Food. Jennifer's life has also been radically transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit and in her personal experiences with Jesus Christ. She feels a strong call to hold a space of compassion, non-judgement and LOVE for all those seeking to become the highest version of themselves, regardless of their religion and beliefs. Even though Jennifer's classes are not "religious" in nature, many students feel the comfort and love of God in her studios. It is our greatest joy to serve the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs of our precious community. We welcome ALL, locals and visitors, to enjoy our transformational classes and trainings!
