There’s a new yoga studio in Kimberley and it offers something no other in the area does — hot yoga. Located just behind the new Sprout Grocery building (formerly Tree Fever Turnings) One Love Hot Yoga is owned and operated by Kristi McRae.

Krista is a Moksha-certified hot yoga instructor. Hot yoga involves yoga exercises performed under hot and humid conditions, with the heat helping increase flexibility during poses.

“Hot yoga really allows your muscles to open and relax,” Kristi says. “It also provides lubrication of your connective tissue and detoxification through sweat.

“I love yoga and I really love hot yoga. There was a need for it in town and I am excited to fill that need. Yoga helps to focus your thoughts, create a sense of peace. It allows me to feel grounded and I want that for myself and others.”

You do not have to be super fit to begin hot yoga, she says.

“This yoga series is really accessible. It’s designed for everyone to get a stretch that’s right for them and to feel successful.”

All levels are welcome. An introductory offer of $50 for a month is available now.

One Love Hot Yoga is open Tuesday through Saturday, with flexible hours so you can find a time that fits your schedule.
