This studio is the best for HOT yoga in the 757! Besides offering a wide variety of classes, they have numerous options for times, I haven't met an instructor I didn't LOVE, each class is as challenging as you make it (all instructors give you options for each pose at a beginner to expert level!), and the studio itself is quite large. Even during COVID times, they've managed to maintain challenging classes while being socially distanced from others. 10/10 would recommend!
Edie Fischer, Owner, Certified Registered Yoga Teacher Edie experienced her first hot yoga class in 1999 while on a business trip to San Francisco and became intrigued with this remarkably powerful and healing form of exercise. In 2003 a hot yoga studio opened in the Virginia Beach area, where she immediately developed a passion & love for yoga. She initiated a disciplined regiment of four to six days a week. Within six months she could see demonstrated results, losing 35 pounds, as well as developing a new appreciation of life and sense of purpose. In the summer of 2006, Edie attended Jimmy Barkan’s Yoga teacher training program in Fort Lauderdale and received her Hot Yoga certification. Since gaining her certification she has redirected her passion toward teaching Yoga. After working retail management for over 20 years she decided to pursue her passion as a yoga teacher and open her own studio. Edie encourages others to try hot yoga and experience benefits. In the classroom, she ensures the benefits of a conditioned body, quieting the chattering mind, and surrendering into the moment, creating a peaceful lifestyle both on and off the mat. Regardless of body type, skill level or age, everyone can benefit. Edie loves to hear stories of how yoga changes people’s lives either by losing weight, increased flexibility or an overall sense of well being. She believes in a gentle approach which allows modifications for every body type. As such, Edie has a strong desire to share her yoga experience with others and encourage them to discover their yogi within. Edie was born and raised in Newport News, Virginia. She currently resides in Smithfield, Virginia with her husband, Bruce. Bruce retired from the Navy and currently owns a handy man business. She has a son who is a Marine, a son that graduated high school in 2007 and is now attending college, and a 17 year old daughter.
