Great Workout. Great Sweat. Great Music.

We believe that getting a proper introduction to your new workout is an essential step to your new, healthy lifestyle. This is why we offer special classes for beginners in Hot Power Yoga, and why our Barre Alive, Cycle Alive and Cardio Alive instructors are delighted to provide modifications for all levels.

The Heat and Humidity Feels Great!

We promise, you’re going to love it! The key is in finding your pace. The truth is, hot yoga practice is addictive. Once you experience the flow of your practice in our heated room, you may never go back.

Our hot studio is kept at 102 degrees and 40 percent humidity, so for classes in our hot room, we encourage beginners to take as long as required to allow their bodies to acclimate. Many students report that within a few classes, they’ve found a new edge they didn’t even know was there.

We all deal with the heat in different ways. If you feel tired or short of breath, we encourage you to pace yourself; move more slowly or lie down on your mat for a few poses. You’ll find that each time you return you feel capable of doing more.

Body Alive offers a wide variety of classes suitable for beginners. If you would like help selecting a class, feel free to come in or call us – we’ll be happy to help.

Prerecorded, TV Classes are Perfect for Beginners

TVs have been installed in our heated studios, giving members the option to take pre-recorded, filmed classes from their favorite Body Alive instructors! This format allows us to supplement our current class offerings, as well as avoid class cancellations if an instructor is not available. Members can expect to get the same experience and sweat as a regular class with these HD TVs and the integration with our in-house sound system.


In every class, our instructors will offer modifications and help students find what works for their experience level. Body Alive also holds workshops to help students work on their form.

Have an injury, or want to make sure you don’t get one?

Whether you’re currently recovering from an injury, or just want to take extra care in preventing one, our teachers educate all students on the proper form and positioning to minimize risk and aid in healing. There’s never any pressure to perform in our hot yoga studio, in fact the opposite is true; we encourage everybody to be mindful of their edge and take breaks when needed.
