An Oconomowoc woman is bringing hot yoga to her city this winter.
“I really just wanted to have a hot yoga studio that is close to home for residents of Oconomowoc and the whole Lake Country community,” said Christina Limbach, owner of Sweat Shop Hot Yoga.
About three years ago, Limbach’s friend introduced her to hot yoga.
“Ever since then, I was hooked,” Limbach said. “I just absolutely love it.”
The studio, N48W36115 E. Wisconsin Ave. Suite B, will have a basic hot yoga class “geared towards beginners or people who haven’t tried hot yoga before,” and a classic hot yoga class that will be “similar to Bikram hot yoga” with 26 postures and two breathing exercises, Limbach said.
A flow yoga class similar to Vinyāsa with “breath to movement,” Limbach said, will be the “best class for mental or stress relief.” There will also be a power yoga class, which will be “more intense” and focused on “building strength.”
