Yoga Harmony offers a fun, relaxed atmosphere where people of all shapes, sizes, and abilities are welcome. Our supportive, knowledgeable, and nurturing teachers will help you get acquainted with the space, and ready for your first class. We are proud of our infrared heat and our clean, eco-friendly environment including antibacterial and antimicrobial cork flooring. With consistent practice, you can expect a lighter, more energized, healthier you!
Most of our classes are beginner friendly and our instructors will help new students by offering modifications, encouragement, and support. You do not need any experience. You just need a willing mind and an open heart.
While some people prefer the structure of a Hot class so they can improve on the same 26 postures, others prefer a more varied experience, like what you’ll find in our Vinyasa classes. We recommend trying a few classes in each type of yoga that we offer with a few different teachers to really identify what you love. And don’t be surprised when it turns out you love them all!
Yoga is practiced to strengthen and stretch the body. It attracts all shapes, sizes and fitness levels. Yoga is for everyone!
Please let your teacher know if you have any injuries, illnesses, or special conditions. Most postures can still be performed with a few modifications your instructor is happy to show you. Most of all, go at your own pace. You are your own teacher.
Don't be scared. There is a lot happening in your first few classes in a heated space. The most common reason for feeling dizzy during class is inefficient breathing. With practice, your body will sweat efficiently to maintain your normal body temperature in the room. Do not worry, it will come.
We are Nashville's only and Tennessee's first infrared heated Hot Yoga studio. Infrared is a radiant heat, comparable to feeling the warmth of the sun on your face. Some of the many benefits include weight loss, increased detoxification, improved circulation, decreased inflamation, and collagen production.
Hot Yoga classes are heated to 105 degrees Fahrenheit with 45-55% humidity. Our vinyasa classes are heated to 95 degrees and the Restorative class is taught at 85 degrees. While that might sound crazy, infrared heats the body but not the air, making the temperature less overwhelming. As you develop your breathing efficiency, you will become more comfortable in the heat.
We have cubbies in the lobby for your socks, shoes, cell phones, bags, and any other items you’re carrying from your day. We lock the doors during class so you can focus on your mat instead of worrying about the safety of your belongings. Our doors aren’t soundproof, though, so please remember to set your cell phones to silent.
Instructors commonly close class with the traditional acknowledgement of "Namaste" "Nama" means bow; "as" means I; and "te" means you. Therefore, Namaste literally means "bow me you" or "I bow to you." This gesture is a deep form of respect.
