KOHLER, Wis. (WFRV) – The practice of yoga can be traced back over 5,000 years. Now, Kohler is turning up the heat on the popular workout.
“Yoga for me is all encompassing, it is community, love. More than just a physical practice” says Ashley Kohler, Manager at Yoga on the Lake.
While she is leading class, you will rarely find her on her mat. “Our philosophy is we want to be immersed with our students in the class as opposed to a teacher standing on a mat because then it is really about the teacher and not the student” she says.
The facility recently expanded to offer a heated studio. “We have our humidifier, thermostat and heat panels in the ceiling. Depending on the class format we can heat the room from 80 degrees up to 105” Kohler explains.
It is a sure way to sweat. “It has amazing benefits” Kohler says. “Our skin is the largest organ of our body. To induce sweat is very cleansing and detoxifying”.
It is the only studio in a 50 mile radius of Kohler to offer this steamy option.
“If your muscles are warm it is easier to get into the postures. You are less sore the next day which is a perk for most people” she explains.
And so is the view. Floor to ceiling windows highlight the studios namesake lake. “It brings mind, body, spirit together as one so it is a really beautiful thing when you have so many people practicing in the studio”.
