Kari is one instructor who has your back! And we mean that quite literally... as a Chiropractor she knows that a strong, healthy and flexible spine is the key to a long and active life! As a long time practitioner of yoga, seeing the benefits in her own life, it only made sense to become certified to teach so she could further help her clients.
In addition to yoga and chiropractic, Kari is also a Cross Fit trainer. Incorporating elements of yoga into her other training has proved effective in giving athletes a competitive edge and reducing injury.
Kari Collart instructs the following:
Real Hot 21 - All Levels
Our most popular class in the Real Hot Series: This 75 minute class features 21 classic hatha yoga poses, performed in a set sequence* which is designed to work the body from from the inside out.
Systematically compressing and opening the body massages and stimulates organs to rid the body of toxins, aid in digestion, and rev the metabolism. The "side effect" is up to 600 calories per hour burned plus a complete toning of all major muscle groups!
The 105 room temp will help to further your detox with a good sweat! So dress or undress accordingly to our controlled heat – no long sleeves or long pants please! Remember to bring a BIG towel! Note: class levels for our Real Hot classes are set according to length of class not intensity or difficulty.
* While this is a set sequence it is not scripted so each instructor brings their own experience and expertise to your practice.
Baptiste Inspired Hot Power Yoga - All Levels
Adapted from Baron Baptiste's Journey Into Power sequence features in his book, it's a fast paced, inspiring power flow. While there are variations to accommodate different class lengths, the sequencing is very similar class to class allowing students to progress with each class. At Real Hot Yoga we add our own touch with some great tunes to keep you inspired... and of course the room is hot enough to work up a great sweat!
Real Hot Barre - All Levels
The temperature 95 degrees, and this Barre class is definitely Real Hot Yoga style! This one hour class is an all encompassing full body workout that is core focused and will effectively work your booty (seat), thighs, arms, and flatten your abs! The ballet barre, as a prop, reinforces ideal positioning of the exercises. Movement consists of small, concentrated moves which strengthen and tone some of the lesser used muscles. This not only helps to tone and sculpt you in record time, but will improve your yoga practice by engaging additional muscles. Barre is the fusing of ideas and philosophies of yoga, Pilates, dance and stretching. You will feel and see the results in record time of a stronger, leaner, and more confident you. You'll see changes in your posture within the first 3 classes and in your silhouette within 10 classes. (FYI- it is not a dance class- no dance experience or background necessary)
