When I first read about the Breathes Yoga Studio,
next door to me, I was simply looking for a new place
to practice I was a long time self-student of the GaiamTV ® by Rodney Yee ®and wanted to attend in person class somewhere. This was the best experience I have had.
At the time, it was one of the best local yoga studios
in the area. I attended hot tapas vinyasa classes with Jeniffer Prugh, yin yoga with Holden, morning Qi
Gong with Lee Holden.
When I relocated almost "off the grid" in 2016, these lessons and experience and helped me to continue self-practice for a while, and it helped my spouse, who had leukemia to stay alive a little longer. We practiced 20 minuted Qi Gong by Lee Holden almost daily, from
2010 until 2019, until his passing. This studio offers
full spectrum of yoga practice, form teacher's training
to health specific yoga.
Jeniffer Prugh (studio owner) sponsors and researches many cancer causes, as well as Tibetan Buddhism. I wish she would have a franchise. This studio is located in
Los Gatos, CA.

mixed with Dharma philosophy. This studio seam to
have a whole community who practices this
style of yoga. It is unique. That is for sure.
Sound Vibration Therapy
According to the Humming Puppy ™ site: "The ‘Hum’
is a soundscape of our own design that combines digital and organic sound frequencies of 7.83hz and 40hz. 7.83hz or the ‘Schumann Resonance’ mimics the grounding vibrations of the earth. 40hz induces ‘Gamma’ brainwave activity which encourages collective peak performance and concentration.
These frequencies combined with the sound of our own singing bowls accompany all of our classes. By immersing ourselves in these sound-waves, the brain can produce the same frequency through the process of entrainment. You might find that practicing yoga with the Hum allows for increased focus and a sense of calm."
Each of Humming Puppy ™ studio offers sound experience join with yoga flow. They have a studio in New York City, NY.
Yoga with a view

have 3 big studios, all in Sydney area.
It offers beach yoga among many other specific programs. They also offer 200hr and 500hr teacher training programs.
Highest rated studio when it comes to both serenity of space and practice.
Hot Tapas only, baby
According to Hotpod Yoga ® site:"As our name suggests, classes take place in a warm environment – approximately 37°C. It’s not just about the atmosphere of delicious calm: heat helps the body melt into the practice, warming the muscles and aiding flexibility while the heart works harder. All this and a purifying sweat help ensure maximum benefit from your effort."
I tried it in California, in a regular hot room, it felt great. Best way to describe it as "doing yoga in a sauna". Little
to heavy for my heart and blood pressure after the
first session, but second session is much easier.
This is an advance practice and need to be considered carefully. But this is definitely very different yoga studio. They have studios all all over United Kingdom.
