Yoga Heights is no stranger in the fitness community. Even though the studio on George Ave has been open for less than a year, they were already voted one of the best studios in D.C. in the Washington Post Express. Before arriving, I thought the popularity might have something to do with their awesome "first class is free" deal but after leaving the studio, I realized there was much more to it than that.
The studio space itself is gorgeous, spacious, clean, and well decorated. From brand new hardwood floors to ideal lighting, this studio is stunning.
The heated class (which ranged from 88 to 92 degrees), was 60 minutes long and dove into a flow right away after a few seconds of meditation. We went through a pretty standard flow but it didn't take long for the sweat to start dripping. I'm not sure if it was the early morning but my muscles felt pretty stiff. However, the heated class allowed them to loosen up and challenge me in more ways than one. Slow and steady definitely sums up this class in a nutshell.
We held most of the poses for several breaths at a time and didn't rush into each pose. I welcomed this pace given I usually need that extra time but if you're looking for something a little quicker, I'd recommend checking out their power flow.
We ended the class with shavasana and a few deep breaths. After class, fresh (and delicious) apples that were waiting for us in the front of the studio.
