MODO Yoga Austin is a hot yoga studio that integrates community and environmental awareness into everything they stand for. Each class is dominated by their strong morals and outlook on life. Not only are they dedicated to the practice of Hot Yoga, but they are extremely involved in the Austin Community.
From what I have experienced, most Hot Yoga classes that I have been to are based off of 26 movements of different kinds and they didn’t vary much from class-to-class. What I really enjoyed about this class was that the flow incorporated all sorts of exercises to really elevate our heart rate. Not only that, there was MUSIC PLAYING! The joy I had when I realized I wasn’t going to be in a steamy, sweaty room for an hour with just my thoughts running through my mind.
I totally get it, sometimes you do want that time along to yourself, but personally I need something playing to help me relax and get me through any sort of class! The music was set to a low volume and I would describe the type of music as “zen,” and not distracting at all.
So next time you’re looking to hit up some Hot Yoga and want a little more than the sound of your own breath to guide you, try out MODO and let me know what you think! I’m not a super yogi so I love to hear feedback from y’all on things like this!
