Our highest vision is to evoke a deep and personal transformation through the practice of yoga, sparking powerful waves of collective change that lead to a higher degree of being…A higher degree of you.

The great artist Michelangelo was once questioned about how he created his masterpiece David. His response was that the beauty in David was simply revealed through the process of methodically chipping away at all of the excess marble. At Fahrenheit Yoga, our approach is much the same.

Our yoga is for real people of all ages, condition, ability, and skill. Each class is designed so that beginners and advanced students all receive maximum benefit.

THE HEAT


THE HEAT

Just as a blacksmith depends on fire to transform raw iron for a higher purpose, the studio’s heat makes our muscles more malleable, so that they can be reshaped without damage or stress to transform your body from the inside out.

Fahrenheit Yoga is equipped with the latest cutting-edge infrared heating and fresh air exchange systems. As opposed to heating the air, Infrared heat technology uses far-infrared rays to heat the body directly with no ultraviolet exposure.

For beginners, hot yoga can be intimidating.  Trust us, we get that.  Our staff and yoga studio will change your mind.

FAQ


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
 

+ HOW DO I REDEEM MY GROUPON/LIVING SOCIAL DEAL?

Come on in! If you get a chance to create a profile online before you get here, that streamlines the process. Just click on the “Register” link on the home page. You will not be able to redeem your Groupon/Living Social voucher online so when you are prompted for payment, just log out. If you don’t get a chance to register online first, that’s ok! We can do that when you get here. We will then add your Groupon/Living Social voucher to your account and you will be able to login and reserve classes after that.

+ DO I HAVE TO PRE-REGISTER FOR CLASS?

No. Drop-ins are welcome, but be sure to get here early. Registering online for class ensures your spot in class will be reserved.

+ WHAT TIME SHOULD I ARRIVE AT THE STUDIO?

Fahrenheit opens its doors 30 minutes before each class. If you are a new student, please arrive 20 minutes in advance to sign-up and tour the studio. PLEASE NOTE: To preserve the focus of each session, doors are locked at the posted start time.

+ WHICH CLASS IS APPROPRIATE FOR BEGINNERS?

Each class at Fahrenheit is designed for all levels, whether a first time student or an advanced practitioner. There is no perfect posture in Yoga because we are all so different. Our teachers will help you find your unique place within the posture, and offer modifications that will suit your abilities. Our teaching method encourages everyone to work to his or her own level of ability. The beauty of yoga is that everyone is practicing the same posture at varying levels of ability, all receiving 100% benefit.

+ WHAT IF I'M NOT FLEXIBLE?

Then you have lots of opportunity! The most common misconception that prevents people from coming to yoga classes is that you need to be flexible. Yoga teaches you to balance your strength and flexibility—promoting equanimity within your whole body for improved everyday function. With a stable and safe practice suited to your body’s daily needs, you will notice increased flexibility over time.

+ WHAT IF I’M PREGNANT OR HAVE AN INJURY OR MEDICAL CONDITION?

Your safety is of the utmost importance to us. Please advise the teacher of any conditions or illnesses so that we can discuss pose variations that will accommodate any injuries. In certain cases, such as high blood pressure or pregnancy, Fahrenheit Yoga requires that you obtain a note from your doctor permitting you to practice with us.

+ How should I prepare for class?

• Try to drink as much water as you can before class to avoid dehydration. • Avoid large meals up to three hours prior to class. • New students arrive 20 minutes before your first visit to complete the new student form and get settled. Also, plan to practice in the back row so you can follow regularly practicing students. • Listen to the instructor’s guidance describing the poses. They provide cues to help you achieve proper alignment and improve depth. • Take a break or skip a pose or two if it becomes too challenging. • Don’t get discouraged. With each class, it becomes much easier to make it through all the poses.

+ HOW OFTEN SHOULD I COME?

We answer this with a question of our own: How fast do you want to transform your life? The fastest and most powerful way to transform your body, mind and soul is to come as often as you can, especially in the beginning. Bottom line: The more you practice, the better you will feel and the faster you will see the cumulative benefits of this practice. Since the hot yoga sequence is comprehensive in nature, for many students it is their only form of exercise. You don’t have to take our word—you will experience the transformation for yourself!

+ WHAT CAN I EXPECT THE NEXT DAY?

If you are new, it is common for your muscles to feel somewhat sore the next day. Drink a lot of water before and after class. It is also helpful for new students to take electrolyte replacements. Try to come as often as you can in the beginning to allow your body to get acclimated to the heat. You may even find that frequent attendance relieves much of your muscle soreness.

+ HOW LONG IS EACH CLASS?

Classes are 60, 75 or 90 minutes. Please plan on remaining in the room the entire time.

+ WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING TO CLASS?

Bring your yoga mat if you have one, water, and 2 large (bath or beach sized) towels. Bottled water, mats, and towels are available for purchase or rent at the studio. You may also want to bring a change of clothes for after class. We have separate men’s and women’s rooms equipped with multiple showers, vanities, toiletries, and more.

+ WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

You should wear lightweight, comfortable clothes in which you can move easily and sweat, but covers appropriately to accommodate the many forward bends that can be revealing. Men typically choose swimming trunks and an optional t-shirt. Women typically wear sports bras with yoga pants or work out shorts and a tank top or t-shirt.

+ CAN I EAT BEFORE CLASS?

Avoid eating heavy meals three hours prior to class. However, a light snack an hour or two before class may be necessary for some. A pre-class snack might be a piece of fruit, toast, or some other simple, plain energy source that is easily digested.

+ CAN I DRINK WATER BEFORE CLASS?

Absolutely! Drink plenty of water before and after the class. Drinking water during class is fine, too, but know that drinking too much water during class may cause nausea.

+ HOW DO I KNOW WHETHER OR NOT I AM PROPERLY HYDRATED?

Good hydration supports the healthy function of all of your body’s systems. Additionally, hydration is VITAL to a successful hot yoga practice. Hydration must start BEFORE heat exposure and/or exercise. Remember that your body needs a certain amount of water every day just to maintain its normal functions. Participating in hot yoga increases the body’s water requirements. Drink plenty of water throughout the day so that you’re adequately hydrated before coming to class. A good rule of thumb is to drink at least half of your body weight in ounces. For example, if you weigh 150lbs, you should drink 75 ounces of water per day. If you practice heated yoga regularly, drink more than that.

+ WHAT TEMPERATURE IS THE YOGA STUDIO?

It’s just right. Heating the studio helps to facilitate the body’s natural ability to heal. The heat may be difficult for new students at first—but don’t get discouraged. Do what you can and be sure to listen to your body. Take breaks by sitting or lying down as often as you need to. The body’s ability to function in heat is not a measure of physical conditioning, but heat conditioning. Only consistent exposure to heat will allow the body to acclimate.

+ WILL I LOSE WEIGHT?

Yoga is an amazing cardio-vascular workout that e and burns calories. With regular practice of 3+ classes a week along with a proper healthy diet, students typically show weight stabilization. Over time, digestive, respiratory, endocrine, and lymphatic systems will optimally work together and you will begin to notice diminished unhealthy cravings.

+ HOW MANY CALORIES WILL I BURN IN A SESSION?

This depends on a number of factors, such as class length, your weight, your sex, and how often you participate. A typical 90 minute session of hot yoga will burn anywhere from 600 to 1,200 calories.

+ DO YOU HAVE A MINIMUM AGE REQUIREMENT?

We ask that students be at least 14 years old. Children’s bodies do not know how to regulate heat and can suffer from heat sickness. Students aged 14 - 17 will be required to get a Minor Waiver form signed. Parent/guardian supervision is required for students who are 14-16 years old.

+ DO YOU HAVE SHOWERS?

Yes! We have separate men’s and women’s rooms equipped with multiple showers, vanities, toiletries, and more.

+ HOW WILL I KNOW WHEN CLASS SCHEDULES CHANGE?

Class schedules do not change too often. We update the website and brochures within the studio as the schedule changes. We also announce changes in class and post them on our social media.

+ STUDIO ETIQUETTE

We open our doors 30 minutes prior to class and close doors 30 minutes after class. New students should plan to arrive at least 20 minutes early. Doors are locked at the posted start time of each class.

BEFORE CLASS • Be in the yoga room and ready to begin BEFORE the scheduled start time. • Inform your instructor of any health issues before taking a class. • Leave shoes in the designated area. No shoes in yoga room or changing rooms. • Leave watches, cell phones, pagers, dangling or bulky jewelry, etc. outside the yoga room. • Enter the studio equipped only with clean bare feet, your mat, towels, water, and an open mind.

DURING CLASS • The yoga room is a silent environment. We live in a noisy and highly stimulated world and often your time on the mat may be your only quiet time. Honor the silence and your body and mind will thank you. • All students are required to practice with both a yoga mat and towel. If you are a heavy sweater, please bring several towels. • Listen to the verbal cues from your instructor and apply what you see and hear to your posture. • Do your very best to stay in the yoga room once class begins. If an emergency requires you to leave, it is ok to leave the room, but you will not be allowed back in. It is shocking to your body to go back and forth between hot and cold. • Always take a break before you feel like you have to. Yoga is about taking care and listening to your body. It speaks to you in the form of sensations. This is your practice, so let the focus be on you. You are your own teacher. We are just here to guide you through your practice. • Have fun!

AFTER CLASS • Observe complete silence during and after the final savasana/meditation. Leave the room quietly. • Clean up around your mat as needed with the clean towels provided in hot room. • Limit your time after class to 15 minutes so the next class can set up and prepare for their practice. Return rented mats and/or towels and place in hampers provided.

+ JAMIE SNOWDEN

Yoga entered my life in 2007. I began my practice following a DVD that I replayed nearly every day until I had the sequence memorized. Yoga quickly became my sanctuary during a time where I felt disconnected from my body and lost in this sense of chaos around me. With every practice, I experienced a subtle and unexpected strength, stillness, and appreciation for my body and life. It wasn’t until the summer of 2010 that I discovered yoga studios. I was inspired by the energy and breath I felt practicing alongside other students. The creativity and love that every instructor invested in their classes moved me to want to teach. In 2011, I received my 200-hour teaching certification from the Radiant Transitions Teacher Training Program through Full Circle Yoga in Orlando, FL with Sarasvati Devi. I believe yoga is a beautiful and powerful outlet for expression. I encourage students to experience every breath, embrace every moment, and allow the strength residing within them to shine through. It is with gratitude that I have the opportunity to share yoga.

+ REBECCA CAMPBELL

I began my yoga journey 3 years ago at a small studio called FitRx. I hated my first practice, but because I had already paid for a groupon, I had to keep going. Within the month, I became addicted. In order to pay for this habit, I realized that I had to become a teacher. So, I completed my first teacher training and taught for 6 months. Then I thought I had to get a full time job and quit all things yoga. Two and a half years later, I realized how miserable I was. I thought back to how happy I was teaching yoga and quit my job to complete a second teacher training. During that second teacher training, I came to the realization that teaching yoga is my purpose in life. I am now happily teaching as often as possible.

+ Olga Dadalko

Yoga for me is life. It may be a cliche, but there is a finite number of ways to put truth into words, and this one speaks my truth. Back in 2010, I recall having health issues, hormonal problems, relationship troubles, stress and anxiety of the graduate school, substance abuse, panic fear of public speaking... Gradually, yoga practice has eliminated those physical and psychologic ailments that were complicating my life. However, most of all, I am grateful to my yoga practice for the developed ability to be acutely aware of the subtle changes in my attitude. As a neuroscientist, I believe that our way of thinking creates out way of being: I got to observe this through scientific research, as well as in so many of the yoga students, myself included. Yoga is a system that tunes me, gets me back to my center, and helps to navigate through whatever storms I need to go through. This subtle change in how the mind functions is reflected in everything: in a shift in my relationships, in a different angle I approach my career with, in a different way of living the life, really. That’s why yoga is my life. That’s why it is so important for me to share it with you.

+ ANNA HEATH

Anna Heath is a Nashville native who spent 5 years living in Denver working in a stressful medical practice. She started practicing yoga as a means to de-stress and relax after a long day, but realized she wanted to do more. She moved back home to Franklin in April 2015 and completed teacher training here at FYS. She splits her time between teaching/practicing yoga and caring for animals as a pet sitter. When not working, she is likely to be curled up with a good book and her bunny, Peeta.

+ KRISTEN BEAL

Freshman year of college I decided to get off a bunch of antidepressants and ADHD pills. Quickly after, I noticed myself spiraling into a state of serious depression and lethargy. It was as if someone had come over and zapped the life out of me. Soon after I was recommended by a mentor to read the book, “A Guide to Transcendental Meditation.” After reading that book, meditation became a way of life and I found an inner strength and peace that I never knew I was capable of having without medication. A year later I discovered yoga and became instantly hooked. The idea of using meditation, breath, and movement together in yoga completely changed my life. Fast forward 6 years and now I live with the passion of teaching others how to find their inner peace.

+ REBECCA SPARKS

I spent years thinking I had an adequate yoga practice, hitting the occasional studio and practicing in my living room using a DVD. It wasn’t until 2012 that I realized yoga was about so much more than reading a couple books and knowing how to press back into downward facing dog. My knowledge of yoga was like a single spec of paint on a Jackson Pollock painting. There was so much more to it!! In 2012, I began suffering from terrible panic attacks. I knew I had to do more than just treat the symptoms. Cultivating a lifestyle to help me cope with anxiety included genuinely committing to a consistent yoga practice… enter Fahrenheit Yoga Studio. I came to my first Hot 26 class nervous but determined. I spent 75% of the class in savasana, but by the end of the 90 minutes I was completely hooked! The heated room and energy radiating from other yogis felt so natural. As I’ve gone deeper into my practice, my anxiety has become more manageable. Yoga is now a part of everything I do. My practice encourages me to remain true to myself and continuously fosters strength, kindness and respect both on and off my mat. The room that once felt so incredibly large is now a warm blanket that envelopes me every time I roll out my mat. Gandhi said, “The future depends on what we do in the present”. I believe my present purpose is to help guide others through their practice on their journey to self-discovery, strength and love. Namaste.

+ LAURA MCCARLY

Breathe. Just breathe. This is my seemingly daily mantra as an elementary school teacher. Don't get me wrong; I love my job and the kids are easily 90% of that, but it takes some patience to survive day after day in a school of 5-10 year olds. I started taking yoga because I saw a new studio was coming into town right down the street from where I lived. I walked to my first class and fell in love. It was the low-impact, high-intensity "workout" I needed for my body. After time, though, what I found I needed more than the postures was to breathe. I needed an escape from principals and students, colleagues and teacher's lounges. In short, I needed me time. I love what yoga does for my body. I love to sweat out the day's toxins and sins. I love the length it gives my muscles and the pull it gives to my midsection. My adoration for yoga, though, comes through the me time. I love giving to myself with every inhale. I love clearing my head for 90 minutes with every exhale. I love not being responsible for or to anyone except myself. Each time I roll out my mat, my mind is cleansed SO much more than my body. I get to start fresh. I breathe. Just breathe.

+ NORA SHABAYEK

When I first started practicing Hot Yoga, I felt I had found my niche, something to call my own. A 4x6 ft. rubber mat became my safe haven and I looked forward to the instantaneous relief I received from the series. Each time I returned to my "happy place" I almost felt as if I were taking myself on a date... A HOT date, that is... Cheesy, I know, but I couldn't resist! My practice was all about me and for a whole hour and a half each day, I felt safe from the rest of my life. As the dedication to my practice grew stronger, the inevitable happened.... My heart opened, and my sprit caught fire. Many of us see our Yoga practice as a separate area of our lives. We go to work, we hang out with friends, we pay the bills, and then we get to go to Yoga, "Ahhhhh..."; It is quite the contrary, actually. Yoga is not a separate aspect of our lives. It is the central area of life. Why? Because Yoga has to do with where we live within ourselves. Every corner of our lives and every practical life experience is a direct out-picturing of where we live within ourselves. The asana can then become tools we use, daily, to express ourselves and thus reflect where we are within. Eventually, we no longer see our yoga practice as something we do at 4:30 for an hour and a half to "turn-off". As we learn what it means to integrate Yoga into every relationship, every situation, and every moment, our practice then becomes a gift not only to ourselves, but to those around us as well. Sharing the precious gift that Yoga has given me is an honor and a huge source of joy and thus, is the biggest reward of all. I am committed to dedicating my life to sharing this transformative practice with the special community of Nashville. It is my intention and my deepest hope that each person who walks through the doors of Fahrenheit uncover what had been there all along.... a masterpiece. May we all experience our highest degree. "May you fall a little bit more in love with your practice and may you use your practice, as often as possible, to fall more in love with your life." Namaste, Nora Shabayek
