With 23 teachers offering a wide variety of classes, a focus on overall wellness and one of just a few yoga walls of its kind in Colorado, Rakta Hot Yoga has been embraced by the community since opening in 2017.

Today, owner Sandy Fallon devoted herself to “helping people be proactive in their life.” And she’s seen “profound” changes happening through yoga and the wellness programing, whether that means getting off blood pressure medication, experiencing less joint pain or just feeling better in general.

Many, but not all, of the yoga classes are hot, which offers such benefits as improving circulation, detoxification, weight loss, relaxation and improved immune function.

But primarily, said Fallon, people who like hot yoga just like it hot.

“Something about it feels very cleansing,” she said. “It’s good, hot, sweaty fun.”
