If Richmond summers aren’t toasty enough for you, then fear not – Midtown Yoga’s got you covered.

This brand-new studio is bringing hot yoga to Carytown — across from Montana Gold Bread Co. and next to Publix, Midtown Yoga provides a unique (and colorful) yoga experience perfect for finding your zen and working up a sweat.

What we tried:

The studio itself features colorful lights and a modern playlist to set the tone. Midtown offers classes in six styles of yoga, and their signature vinyasa classes keep you flowing through poses in the 105-degree heat. Pro tip: Make sure to hydrate before, after, and during your class.

City Editor David made it through a 45-minute class in one piece, and, full disclosure, he can’t even touch his toes.

What not to miss:

Midtown Yoga offers full towel service and locker rooms with showers, so you can sneak through on your lunch break without having to go back to the office drenched in sweat.

What we’re still talking about:

The lights in the studio do more than just set the tone — they let you know where you are in the class’ progression. They start off blue as the class begins, when participants can expect calmer, more peaceful poses.

As things heat up, the lights will switch to pink, and once they turn red, you’ll know you’ve arrived at the hardest part of class. Poses and flows will get easier and more relaxing from there, and before you know it, you’ll be under blue lights again as the class is winding down.

How you can experience this:

New clients at Midtown Yoga get a $25 deal allowing them unlimited classes for their first 10 days.
