From spine-strengthening cobra poses followed by a sudsy craft brew to rejuvenating downward-facing dog stretches in the company of kitties, the list of creative, popular yoga offerings means there’s one just right for you. Here’s a glimpse of some of the classes available in the Orlando area: Hot Yoga takes place in a studio that is heated to 102-105 degrees, where students balance, stretch and sweat their way through the workout. Ocoee’s Toni Wheeler works out at Hot on Yoga in Winter Garden and Orlando Power Yoga in Dr. Phillips, and she loves them both. “I prefer a hot studio, because it intensifies the workout by allowing deeper stretching as your muscles warm up,” she said. “I find it therapeutic and a great way to stay in shape.” Feline friends rejoice! Orlando Cat Café in Clermont has the purrfect class for you. Yoga with cats includes one hour of yoga followed by 30 minutes of time visiting with the kitties in the “cat play area,” which will leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. All of the cats who call the café home are available for adoption, so who knows, you might just go home with a new furry family member. Classes are offered the second and fourth Saturday morning of every month for $15, and reservations are required. Call 352-989- 4820 or visit their Facebook page. There’s even a yoga class for beerlovers. Hair of the Downward Dog yoga class takes place every Saturday at 11 a.m. on the silo lawn of Crooked Can Brewing Co. in Winter Garden’s Plant Street Market. Bring a mat and the $10 fee, which includes the class and a 13- or 16-ounce beer of your choice. (Participants under 21 are welcome for $5.) If you are looking for an alternative to Friday happy hour, consider Orlando Brewing’s Yoga Under the Stars, which takes place at 7 p.m. on the third Friday of the month. For more information, visit or check them out on Facebook. “Holy Yoga is very much like traditional yoga with the breaths, movements and poses. It’s just Christcentered, and that faith anchors our intentions and meditations,” said Ocoee resident Amy Brady, a registered Holy Yoga instructor. If you are looking to strengthen your body, be part of a supportive community, and connect with the Creator, Holy Yoga might be for you.
