WE ARE FULLY OPEN!!
We are beyond excited to be back serving our beautiful community at Sedona and Cottonwood Hot Yoga.
Here are some things we are doing at Sedona Hot Yoga to offer comfort and protection. We have always sanitized the studio after every class with an oxygen solution that is stronger than bleach, non-toxic and has been used in ebola outbreaks… it's good stuff!! We heat the room to 105 which raises the bodies temperature to boost the immune system to kill pathogens. We love our students like family and we do our very best to ensure that everyone is as comfortable as possible.
We will not be mandating mask wearing as our practices require maximum oxygen potential for the safety of the participants. If you are a high risk person or are in close contact with a high risk person you are certainly allowed to wear as mask, we will just not be mandating it.
We ask that anyone who is currently not feeling well or has a cough to please avoid attending any offerings until you are better. If you have been in contact with a sick person, we ask that you avoid attending classes until they are better. If you appear to be sick while coming to class we will politely ask you to leave to go home and rest.
We understand that hot yoga is a lifeline for many people, providing a boost to the immune system, dramatic reduction in stress and a significant improvement to overall health. It is our goal to continue to provide a safe, clean, thoughtful space for those who wish to continue with their wellness and religious practices. Please check the online schedule often for updates. We love you!
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 she has since added a second location in Cottonwood, AZ as well as a healthy fast food restaurant called Wholesome Fast Food at the Cottonwood location. Jennifer's life has also been transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit and in her personal relationship 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!
